Am I too old for braces?
You are never too old for a properly aligned and beautiful smile! Having straight teeth has a number of benefits that become more important as you age.
Straight Teeth Are Easier to Keep Clean
Having straight teeth makes it easier to keep teeth and gums healthy. They are easier to brush, floss, and professionally clean. This can minimize the risk of gum disease and exposed roots, which can cause sensitivity.
Straight Teeth Are Easier to Restore
If you need a dental filling or crown, fitting it properly is much easier when you have properly aligned teeth. Fitting a crown on a tilted tooth may not give you the results you want. If you are seeking cosmetic restorative dentistry such as crowns, bonding, or veneers, you may consider having orthodontics first to straighten your smile.
Invisalign Is a Great Solution for Adults
Many adults wish they could finally have a straight smile they feel great about, but braces are not something that feels right for their lifestyles. Invisalign offers an alternative that is both effective and discreet.
Rather than brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a clear aligner system to gradually nudge teeth into alignment.
