Can i wear braces again?

Written by Dr. Chaw Su Kyi on February 13, 2014

I wore braces as a teenager, I’m now in my thirties – can I still have brace treatment?

We have many patients who wore braces during their childhood and the teeth have moved back over time. The most important aspect is to assess the health of the teeth to see if they are healthy enough to have a second course of brace treatment. With modern brace techniques like Damon fixed braces, light forces are applied to the teeth to produce gentle movements. The first step is to have a comprehensive assessment by a specialist orthodontist.
