Is it too late to straighten my teeth?

I wish I had worn my braces when I was younger!

I want straight teeth now but I couldn’t wear train tracks!

It will take too long and cost a fortune!

These are comments that I hear from patients very frequently and yes we tend to assume that orthodontic treatment is the preserve of the young. Patients also tend to view orthodontics purely from an aesthetic point of view and often chide themselves for even considering treatment in the name of vanity!

Orthodontics is one of the most effective and least invasive ways of achieving straight teeth. It is a popular choice for both adults and children. Straight teeth are usually healthy teeth, maintenance is easier and this reduces the chances of tooth decay and gum disease. This is as true in teenage years as it is mid to late life. Orthodontics in adults is now common place.

The technology has advanced to allow braces to be practically invisible. The metal bits can be fitted to the back of your teeth or ceramic and clear wires can make the train tracks disappear.

Justin can be relied on to offer simply the best treatment and outcome for his patients. He will make sure all options are visited and discussed for each individual.
