I’m 38 years old. I’ve had an overbite my whole life, but I’ve never been able to afford braces. I’ve recently come into some money and can finally get my teeth fixed. Do you think someone my age is too old for braces?
There are many adults who get braces, so you are not alone in getting braces at your age. There are many more options in braces than their used to be. Not only is there the traditional braces, but now there are self-ligating braces.
If you are concerned about your appearance with braces, you can get what is known as invisable braces. They’re not really braces at all. Instead, Invisalign are are clear aligners. No one will be able to tell you are wearing them, even at a conversational distance.
