If having a straight set of teeth has been your lifelong dream you can still go after it, even if you’re already well into adulthood. There is a common misconception that teeth alignment is only possible for teens and younger kids. Supposedly, the older you get, the more difficult it is to make your teeth move to put them in the right position.
Of course, there’s also the fact that most adults don’t want to be seen wearing metal braces in their mouth. This oral application has been the cause of many taunts and teasing for teens and kids who wear them, and that can make adults weary of attempting straighten their teeth later in life.
