Never too old for braces ... orthodontics can successfully realign crooked teeth or an overbite regardless of age

The diagnosis, prevention and treatment of misalignment of teeth and the jaws is called Orthodontics. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends the first orthodontic check-up should be by the age of 7

The corrective appliances used in an orthodontic treatment are dental braces and palatal expanders. To eliminate crossbite and crowding of teeth in growing patients, palatal expanders (early intervention appliances) are used to encourage optimal jaw growth.

Dr Reuben How treats with a variety of systems, including Invisalign. For more information on Invisalign, click here.  For more information about Dr Reuben How and orthodontics, see our video

By applying light pressure to the teeth, braces can slowly move and align them accordingly through the jaw bone. Minor discomfort are known to affect most people since the process of moving the teeth will normally cause some tenderness.
