Getting braces as an adult has many benefits. Here are just a few ways that making your teeth straighter can improve your quality of life:

  • Making your teeth easier to clean
  • Reducing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease
  • Increasing comfort when speaking, chewing food, and even breathing
  • Reducing wear-and-tear on certain teeth caused by uneven bite pressure
  • Reducing headaches and pain related to TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction)

Frequently Asked Questions about Braces for Adults & Seniors

How Much Do Braces for Adults & Seniors Cost?

The total cost of braces varies according to each patient’s specific orthodontic needs. For example, your braces will most likely cost more if your teeth require significant realignment. However, your insurance coverage also plays a role in determining your final out-of-pocket costs.

Koga Orthodontics accepts a wide range of insurance providers, making our services more cost-effective and accessible for the vast majority of patients. For an accurate estimate based on your individual needs, the best bet is to contact us directly.

How Long Do Adult Braces Take?

Typically, adult braces take 1-3 years to realign a patient’s teeth. However, the length of time required depends on how much realignment is needed. The effectiveness of your braces will also depend on how well you follow our recommendations for maintaining them. Many adults who wear braces experience results more quickly than children simply because they are better at following instructions to care for them.

Are Adult Braces Painful?

While wearing braces as an adult, you may experience some soreness and discomfort as your teeth gradually shift over time. You may find it difficult to chew certain foods for a few days after your braces have been adjusted, but this sensitivity typically disappears afterwards and you should be able to resume normal activities.

What Kinds of Braces Can Adults & Seniors Get?

Adults and seniors may be eligible for different types of braces, depending on their budget and needs. At Koga Orthodontics, we offer clear aligners, plus clear and traditional braces for adult patients.

Will I Need a Retainer After My Braces Come Off?

Patients need to wear retainers after their braces come off to prevent their teeth from slowly shifting back to their original positions. This is just as true for adults and seniors as it is for children and teens. You should also expect to visit us regularly once your braces have been removed to confirm that the alignment of your teeth continues to remain ideal.

Should I Get Braces As An Adult?

If your teeth are misaligned to the point where it affects your confidence or makes it hard to take care of them properly, braces can be an excellent way to improve your smile and oral hygiene. Anyone can get braces as an adult, as long as their teeth and gums are healthy enough. To find out if adult braces can help you, contact Koga Orthodontics and speak to a qualified member of our team.

Dr. Koga and her staff were awesome! After 13 months of aligners, I love how my bite feels and how my teeth look. Dr. Koga was always patient with my questions and clearly communicated expectations. She is thorough in building a unique treatment plan to meet the needs of every patient. Highly recommend!

Dr. Koga and her staff are absolutely amazing. Everyone we encounter has been extremely patient and thorough with my nine-year-old son. I highly recommend this group for orthodontic care.

I loved the experience I felt very comfortable. Dr. Koga is so cool and a fun person. Her assistant that assisted me was so very nice and bubbly. I loved my experience I can’t wait to come back and get my braces and meet everyone again.

I love Dr.Koga. She & her staff are all very professional & compassionate. Each visit, they are ALWAYS genuinely concerned with my progress & are always careful to explain each step to me & my mom. They always go
the extra mile to make sure I am completely comfortable. I actually look forward going to all of my appointments. Love them! ❤️
