Ask Dr. Gates: Am I too old for orthodontic treatment?

The short answer is: of course not.

Recently, our staff here at Round Rock Orthodontics read a fascinating statistic: adults getting braces has jumped 24 percent from just 14 years ago! Yes, braces help make your pearly whites strong, healthy and perfectly-aligned, but perhaps another reason for the spike in adult braces is this: people want to look and feel great. In an age—and society—where looks matter as much as anything, and at a time when evenly-aligned teeth might be the difference between getting a job or a promotion, adults are choosing to invest in orthodontics. Orthodontic treatment with Dr. Gates can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile.

If you’ve been thinking about getting that perfect smile, Dr. Gates would love to have you visit for a consultation. Please give us a call at (512) 244-2644 to set one up!

  1. I had braces two years ago at age 52 and I'm so glad I did. It wasn't a difficult process and the results were just what I hoped for; it even made my TMJ problem almost completely disappear.
