Are braces just for children and teenagers? According to the American Association of Orthodontics, about one in five orthodontic patients today are adults. At Whitlock, we do not put an age limit on helping you achieve the confidence of a beautifully straight smile.
Imagine achieving beautifully straight teeth without the difficulties of traditional wire braces. Nearly invisible to your friends and coworkers, Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners to help teeth gradually shift into place.
1. IS AGE A FACTOR?
Not necessarily. Invisalign® aligners are uniquely designed to move and shift teeth. Although other factors may contribute, moving teeth into their proper place is the same process regardless of age.
2. HAVE YOU DELAYED STRAIGHTENING YOUR TEETH?
Don’t worry… it’s not too late. Many adults did not have the opportunity to take advantage of orthodontic care as a teenager for a variety of reasons. Today, the tide is turning as more and more adults pursue orthodontic solutions. With the advanced option of Invisalign® clear braces, many adults are pleasantly surprised to discover that beautifully straight teeth can be very affordable and less obtrusive.
3. ARE YOUR TEETH SHIFTING?
Patients who had straight teeth as younger adults will often notice a change in the alignment of their teeth as they age. Even patients who had braces as teenagers, but stopped wearing their retainer will often see teeth shifting. Because teeth are embedded in our bones and bones shift and change over time, adults may see gaps forming or teeth crowding together. If you notice any change in the alignment of your teeth, we would highly recommend you let us take a look to see if Invisalign® might work for you. At Whitlock, you will discover that professional orthodontic solutions are affordable, convenient and remarkably rewarding.
