Can I Straighten Only Some Of My Teeth

There are many reasons that people hold off on getting braces, or do not think that braces are right for them. Sometimes the reasons are financial or cosmetic, but many people—especially adults—hold off on getting braces because they think that braces are an all or nothing treatment: you either straighten all of your teeth or you leave them as they are. However, this is a common misconception. It is possible to straighten just some of your teeth, saving you the hassle and inconvenience of wearing a mouthful of braces. Having the option to straighten just some of your teeth makes braces a more realistic treatment, and something that is easier to pursue than many people might think.

Your mouth changes as you get older, and even if you have had braces in the past you may want to consider straightening your teeth later in life.
