Can I Get Braces as an Adult?

Yes, you can get braces as an adult. Even though braces are commonly associated with teenagers, simply because most people first notice their misaligned teeth during that age period, there really is no cutoff age when you can get braces to correct your malocclusion; crowding, spacing, or overbites. Braces can be used to correct misaligned teeth at any age, provided that your teeth and gums are reasonably strong; and almost 50% of orthodontic patients are now adults.
