There is no age limit to consider orthodontics.
Even if the majority of orthodontic patients are children or adolescents, more than 25% of Canadians under orthodontic care are adults. In our practice, this proportion is even greater.
We regularly and successfully treat patients between 40 and 70+ years of age. The oldest patient we saw was 81!
The basic biological process allowing the teeth to move is the same for all healthy individuals, regardless of their age.
In adults, the absence of growth may make it necessary to use different treatment modalities or to have different treatment objectives than with a growing population.
The recent technologies that we introduced in our practice in the past few years are particularly suited for adults by making treatment more efficient, accessible and comfortable than ever before for the adult population.
It is never too late to improve your dental condition with orthodontics
