Are adults too old for Invisalign treatment?

Are adults too old for Invisalign treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is often associated with children and teens, but anyone with healthy teeth and gums can have their teeth straightened. Our Delta dentists explain why Invisalign may be an ideal way for adults to get the straight smile they've always wanted.


In the past it was unusual for adults to be seen wearing braces, but now, thanks in part to Invisalign's clear orthodontic aligners, more and more adults are choosing to correct dental misalignments that were left untreated in childhood.

Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic treatment option that allows adults to straighten their teeth with hardly anyone noticing! 

It used to be that, in order to straighten your teeth you needed to wear bulky metal braces and wires, a look that many adults would feel self-conscious about. Braces just aren't compatible with the professional appearance that many adults want to maintain in the workplace and in their personal lives.

With Invisalign, adults can get on with their busy schedules without worrying about what others might think of their braces. 

Invisalign aligners are made from very thin clear plastic that is barely noticeable to others.

The aligners are custom made for each patient's unique smile, and are created to gently guide each tooth into its desired position.

Invisalign's aligners are removable. That mean's you won't need to worry about what to eat while out at business lunches or on dinner dates. Just discreetly remove the aligners and store them in their handy container while you eat. Then, once the meal is over brush and floss your teeth, rinse the aligners, and pop them back in place. No need to change your diet or miss out on special foods.

The fact is, Invisalign can be the ideal orthodontic treatment option for adults.
