At one time, most people believed braces were "just for kids." The fact is, that of the thousands of Canadians now in orthodontic treatment, more than one of every four is over 21. Because the basic process involved in moving teeth is the same in adults as in children, orthodontic treatment can usually be successful at any age. The health of the teeth, the gums and the supporting bones will also determine the prospects for improvement.
So who can benefit? Most anyone, really. The truth is you're never too old to be your best. Regardless of age, orthodontic treatment is always a change for the better.
