If you’re hesitant to align your smile because you’re afraid you’re too old for treatment, it’s time to think differently. Whether you believe it or not, your orthodontist, Dr. Stephan Ramsay, loves helping adults achieve the smiles of their dreams. There are many reasons why this is the case.

First, adults follow instructions. When we ask them to avoid hard and sticky foods, keep their mouth clean, and attend their appointments, they do it. They don’t waste time experimenting and seeing what they can get away with. They want the best results possible so they follow orthodontic instructions the best they can.

Second, adults typically have better oral hygiene than adolescents. This is often because adults focus and make sure every space in their mouth is taken care of. This can be a tough task, especially because braces can make oral hygiene difficult. Because of this, adolescents get frustrated sometimes and they give up on cleaning their teeth, gums, and braces.

Third, adults are more motivated. When adults choose to align their smiles, they do it for themselves. When kids and teens start orthodontic treatment, it’s because their parents and dentist make them. This encourages them to just go through the motions rather than stay motivated to help the orthodontist provide top-notch results.
