Is It Ever Too Late to Fix Our Teeth?

Posted by: Dr. Sirakian     Categories: Uncategorized

As the years roll on, we continue to get older as do our bodies. However, just because we have grown out of our youth, it does not mean that our teeth do not matter anymore. In fact, our smiles are just as important now than ever!

Let’s get one thing straight, it is never too late to correct those pearly whites! When thinking of braces, the awkward tween years reminisce in our minds, but braces and straightening methods for adults are just as common.

According to studies, “30% of all dental and orthodontic patients in the United States are adults.” Whether it is for oral health reasons, or simply wanting a straighter smile, there are many ways to tweak our teeth to fit our ideal image. There is no such thing as being too old for teeth correction, and with the multitude of advancements being developed every year, it is even more realistic for everyone to create their perfect smile.

If a straight smile is something you have always struggled with, do not panic! There are multiple options available to aid with this, simply set up an appointment with your dentist to decide which one is appropriate for you. Braces are said to now “have gone high tech, with new stronger materials, to manage your individualized treatments, and to speed up treatment times.” From the regular metal braces, to the ever so sleek and clear Invisalign trays, to ceramic braces that blend in with the color of your teeth, or lingual braces that sit “behind the teeth and are not visible,” there are several options to set you on the right path to perfection.

In order to determine if one is a successful candidate for orthodontic treatments, it will all come down to “one’s general health, what exact problem the individual is experiencing, and that specific person’s history of periodontal health.” There are specific options tailored to everyone and their budget, so do not hesitate to ask of all the possibilities out there for you.

Orthodontic and dental advancements have helped many people live a confident lifestyle; if correcting your teeth has been something you have always wanted to do, let us help you start the process towards beautiful teeth today.

Remember that you are only as old as you feel, and it is never too late to fix something you are unhappy with, especially with something you brand yourself with on a daily basis. With current and developing advancements, there is something out there for everyone at every age. Contact your dental practice today for further information!
