Do your teeth get more crooked as you age?

Teeth can shift over time because of natural aging and other factors. However, our braces can effectively move your teeth back into proper positions, regardless of your age.

How long do braces take for adults?

The duration of braces treatment varies depending on the patient's dental needs. However, most adults can expect to wear braces for about 18 months to 3 years.

How many teeth do adults have after braces?

After braces are removed, adults typically have the same number of teeth as they did before the braces were put on. While some orthodontic cases may require extractions due to severe crowding or specific issues, dental professionals, including those at Diamond Braces, always strive to create a customized treatment plan. At Diamond Braces, the goal is to avoid extraction procedures whenever possible and explore alternative solutions to align teeth and correct bite issues effectively. Each patient's unique dental situation is carefully assessed, allowing for a tailored approach that prioritizes preserving natural teeth whenever feasible.

Is it better to get braces as a child or adult?

Both children and adults can benefit from braces. The best time to get braces depends on the patient's dental needs and lifestyle.

Is 17 too late for braces?

No, the age of 17 does not exceed the appropriate time for orthodontic treatment involving braces. In fact, many of our patients start their orthodontic treatment in their late teens or even as adults.

Is 21 too old for braces?

No! We serve a considerable number of patients who commence their orthodontic treatment in their third decade or beyond. The pursuit of an aesthetically pleasing smile knows no temporal boundaries.

Is 7 years old too early for braces?

The American Association of Orthodontists suggests that kids get their first orthodontic check-up at age 7 to avoid future problems.

Is 70 too old for braces?

Orthodontic treatment can be suitable for any age, whether you're in your 70s or beyond. Traditional metal braces, as well as invisible braces, offer effective options for achieving a beautiful and healthy smile, without the worry of grinding your teeth.

When choosing the right type of braces, you have various options to consider. Traditional braces, with their stainless steel brackets and wires, are a well-established treatment option for straightening your teeth. They work well for addressing various dental problems, preventing issues such as gum disease often caused by crooked teeth and jaws.

On the other hand, when it comes to dental insurance, exploring your options for coverage is essential, especially when you're considering a treatment plan like ligating braces. Unlike Invisalign, which offers virtually invisible and removable braces, ligating braces involve metal brackets and wires that can be less discreet. It's crucial to check your dental insurance policy to understand what kind of coverage you have for orthodontic treatments, such as ligating braces, as it can significantly impact your overall cost and affordability.

Ceramic braces, also known as tooth-colored braces, offer a good choice for those who seek braces that are not easily visible. They blend in with your teeth and gums, making them less noticeable. They work like regular metal braces and can help straighten your teeth while giving you a more subtle look.

On the other hand, lingual braces are the most invisible type of braces. They are custom-made to fit the back of your teeth and can effectively move your teeth into the right positions.

What age is best for braces?

Orthodontic treatment can be effective at any age. However, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends a check-up no later than age 7 to identify any potential issues early on.

What age is braces not free?

While we strive to make orthodontic treatment affordable, we do not provide free braces. We accept state-sponsored insurances like Medicaid, and many private insurances cover the full or a portion of the costs. Some plans have age restrictions, typically up to 18 years old. Feel free to schedule an appointment, and we'll be happy to assist you in understanding these details. Don't delay—schedule today to avoid missing a crucial deadline!

Additionally, we offer flexible payment plans starting at $89 per month for 24 months. We accept various forms of payment, including insurance, Health Savings Accounts (HSA), and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). To further support you, we provide 0% interest loans, making it easier to achieve your dream smile.

What age shouldn't you get braces?

There is no age ceiling for orthodontic treatment with braces. We believe it's never too late to improve your smile. We've successfully treated patients well into their 70s and beyond.

What is the best teeth straightening for elderly people?

Invisalign, a popular choice among mature patients, is often recommended for older adults seeking more comfortable and less visible tooth movements compared to traditional braces. If you're interested, schedule a consultation to discuss the best treatment for your unique needs.

At Diamond Braces, we're committed to helping you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile at any age.
