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.
