Am I Too Old For Invisalign?

Even though the teeth are set in place by adulthood, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. Many adults receive treatment with traditional metal braces or use Invisalign invisible braces with positive results. Invisalign can be used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to correct minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign also offers patients options to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.

Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?

Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth is beneficial to more than your appearance. Crooked teeth are more prone to damage and decay and may cause more problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbite issues can also affect dental health by changing the stability of your bite. Plus, teeth that are aligned properly are easier to brush and floss, reducing your chances of decay and plaque buildup.
