The answer is NO. Teeth move in the same manner regardless of age. Therefore, as long as the teeth and the surrounding structures; i.e. the gums and the bones, are healthy, tooth movement can occur. In fact, the percentage of adults who seek orthodontic treatment is continuously growing.
We offer both metal and ceramic/clear braces. They both work in exactly the same manner. Ceramic braces are obviously a lot less noticeable.
