Am I Too Old For Orthodontics?

Woodhill Dental SpecialtiesAugust 22, 2021

A lot of adults think, "am I too old to get orthodontic treatment?" At Woodhill Dental Specialties, we have patients from 6 years old to 93 years old, which just shows that you're never too old for a great smile!

"I was an adult orthodontic patient myself," Dr. Johnson said. "The most surprising thing to me was how great I felt about my smile when I was finished."

Today, about 35% of our patients are adults. With more subtle treatment options available than traditional metal braces, it’s no wonder adult orthodontics are becoming more popular.

Am I Too Old for Orthodontics?

You may be thinking, “I’ve lived with these teeth so long, why should I get braces now?” A better smile can make you more confident, and confidence is great at any age! Dr. Johnson is proof that adult orthodontic treatment can make a difference in your life. He said his treatment boosted his confidence, and he wants to share that feeling with everyone who comes into Woodhill Dental Specialties. 

We offer a separate treatment room for adults, so you feel comfortable during checkups. We have experience treating adult patients, with more than a third of our current patients being adult patients. From the moment you enter, you’ll know you are in good hands! 

Aesthetic Orthodontic Treatment Options for Adults

Another concern adults have is the aesthetic part of it. Some may feel self-conscious about showing off traditional metal braces every time they smile.

We offer great options like clear ceramic braces. They more closely match the color of your teeth, so they're harder to see. We also offer lingual braces, which fit behind the teeth and are practically hidden, even when you smile. We also offer clear aligners, which are nearly invisible as well as removable!

How Braces Have Changed

Today’s braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more efficient than ever before.

We offer self-ligating stainless steel braces, which don’t require elastics to hold the wire in place. They’re more comfortable and more efficient, so you may be in braces for less time than you think! We also offer gold braces for those who want to “bling” it up.

Seeing a patient see their new smile for the first time reveals confidence they haven't had before and pride in what they've accomplished. We want to bring those feelings of confidence and pride to you.
