When is it too late to have straight teeth?

Most dentists and orthodontists would say, “It’s never too late to have your teeth straightened!” And in fact, adults make up nearly half of today’s orthodontia patients.straighten teeth methuen ma kalil dental

 

You have your reasons, we have your solution!

 

Whether you’re hoping to finally get the smile that you never had as a younger person, or you’re teeth have moved and don’t look as straight as they did when you were younger, adult braces could be just what you need.

Our adult patients have many reasons for deciding that now it the right time. Maybe their parents couldn’t afford the procedure when they were younger. But often, they tell us that they’ve become more aware of the health and cosmetic benefits of straight teeth. A better smile can help improve their self-esteem, which can lead to improvements in others areas of their lives.

So most of our patients would agree that the time and money spent on braces definitely pays off. And modern braces are easier to tolerate than ever before.

 

Grown-ups, you’ll be glad to know this

The technology and techniques that make up teeth straightening has changed quite a bit over the past 10-15 years. The days of the old-school metal mouth are pretty much over as more lightweight, attractive and even clear options have become available, plus:

  • Brackets are smaller
  • Bands and appliances don’t wrap all the way around the teeth
  • There is less pain
  • You don’t usually have to wear them as long

 

We all want an attractive smile, at every age

That’s why we’re seeing more adults of all ages, including seniors, interested in straightening their teeth. And everyone can benefit from having the proper bite that braces can help provide.

 

Consider your choices

  • Traditional braces — metal or clear/ceramic
  • Invisalign — a series of clear, removable, custom-made orthodontic aligners, adjusted as the teeth move
  • Veneers — wafer-thin shells that are bonded to the front side of your teeth to instantly improve their appearance

 

Straightening your smile can be a very adult decision
