Am I Too Old For Orthodontic Treatment?
Are you self-conscious about your teeth and have been considering making a change? Would you love to improve the placement and appearance of your teeth but think you’re too old for orthodontic treatment? We are here to tell you that you are never too old to make improvements to your oral health, and that includes orthodontic treatment. Gone are the one-size-fits-all orthodontic treatments you may remember from your youth. There are a number of options available depending on the placement of your teeth and your lifestyle choices.
Improve Your Oral Health
Receiving orthodontic care not only improves the appearance of your teeth, but also helps to eliminate problems that can negatively affect your oral health. Issues with your bite, spaces between teeth, and overcrowding issues can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, jaw discomfort, headaches, and sleep apnea issues. Choosing orthodontic care can improve these conditions as well as increase your self-esteem and help you love your smile again.
Long gone are the days when traditional metal braces were the only orthodontic option. While that is still a wonderful choice for some patients, many of our adult patients love the benefits that Invisalign® and Fastbraces® offer. Invisalign uses clear trays to slowly transition the teeth into the desired placement. The trays are removable, allowing patients to enjoy their favorite foods and properly clean their teeth. Fastbraces treatment is also beneficial because of the shorter treatment time. It is more cost effective than the traditional method and requires fewer appointments. Following a consultation, we will suggest a treatment method that would be most suited to your needs.
