Why do I need braces as an adult?
If you had braces as a kid and you find that you need them again as an adult, that’s because our teeth shift as we get older. Different teeth may grow at different rates than others, too. They can change positions over time through natural growth, injury, or tongue thrust (a condition where the tongue projects through the front teeth during speech, swallowing, or when the tongue is at rest).
