Can Adults Wear Braces?

 
Chapter: How Can I Find Out if I Need Braces?

Consult with your dentist and ask for an evaluation. Many general dentists have received additional training in orthodontics and have chosen to incorporate it into their practice.

 

Depending on the complexity of your case and whether or not your dentist performs orthodontic work, he or she may choose to treat you or refer you to an orthodontist, a dentist who specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. An orthodontist has completed two to three years of advanced education in orthodontics in addition to a four-year dental graduate program.
