Everyone wants to have a smile that they love and are proud to show off. A straight smile helps boost confidence, achieve better oral health, and more. Today many adults are looking to straighten their teeth but think they are too old to wear braces or have their teeth straightened. So how old is too old for straightening your teeth?
How Old Is Too Old to Straighten Your Teeth?
Simple answer - you are never too old! Straightening your teeth isn’t limited to adolescence, and no matter your age, there is the opportunity to improve your smile. We have had patients as old as 75 straighten their teeth! As long as you have healthy bones, gums, and teeth, it's never too late to straighten your teeth. As a child, you may not have needed teeth straightening or may not have had the opportunity. Adults are great candidates for clear aligners or invisible braces because of the following:
1) Affordability - It is now cost-effective to have clear aligners, and some insurances accept this treatment option. By cutting out office visits, we help customers save around 65% of the typical cost of orthodontic treatment.
2) Motivation - As a kid, you may not have had wanted to wear a retainer or have braces. They didn't want to be made fun of or may have just not understood the benefits of a healthy smile. However, as an adult, you are motivated by wanting a straighter smile and willing to put in the time to wear the clear aligners to get the results you want. With options like nighttime aligners, even those who don’t want to wear aligners during the day can experience the benefits of straight teeth.
3) Correct Adult Teeth Shifting - You might have worn braces as a teenager, but as an adult, there is a good chance your teeth have shifted over time. This commonly happens to adults regardless of their dental habits, resulting in gaps, misalignment, or crowding. Luckily as an adult, you can still correct your smile.
4) Convenience - You don't have to go to an orthodontist's office for regular check-ups and get braces adjusted. The treatment is customized from start to finish and will take you through each straightening stage. The best part is how discreet clean aligner technology has become. No one will know you are wearing your aligner, and it’s all done without pesky wires, metal attachments, or rubber bands.
