We’re seeing more and more adult orthodontic patients these days, and it’s not hard to figure out why. A system like Invisalign that is barely noticeable gives adults more discreet choices when it comes to orthodontic treatment. And many adults realise that investing in a smile makeover can have significant benefits, socially and professionally. Straightening teeth can be an important part of that confidence-boosting makeover process.
Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, so there’s no such thing as being too old for braces. However, orthodontic treatment for adults is different in two important respects: For one thing, the growth and development of the jaws is complete in adults, so changes in actual jaw structure can’t be accomplished with orthodontic appliances in the way they can with a growing child.
Secondly, periodontal (gum) disease is more prevalent in adults than in children. Any gum disease must be brought under control before orthodontic treatment begins. And to maintain your periodontal health, you will need to make sure to have regular professional cleanings during your orthodontic treatment.
Now is the best time to get the smile you’ve always wanted. And Invisalign is an amazingly discreet way to get the smile you want.
