Often, people will get braces fitted when they are children or teenagers. It’s a popular treatment once all of the adult teeth have come through and a dentist can see that some work is going to need to be done. If you didn’t get braces as a youngster though, it isn’t too late.
Braces are a good idea if you want to fix your teeth so that they are straighter, closer together or have a better bite. You can get braces or another kind of orthodontic treatment to fix the problem at any age via a private dental clinic. You will have the luxury of being able to choose any clinic you want to and if you have dental insurance, you may be able to claim through this.
If you would prefer not to have obvious metal braces at an older age, you could get Invisalign as an alternative. It is transparent and practically invisible so you won’t need to feel self-conscious.
