If you’re a Charlotte resident over the age of 50, you should know that it’s never too late to straighten your smile. At Chad Johnson Orthodontics, we treat crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, and other malocclusions in patients of all ages, including those over 50.
We often recommend Invisalign as it’s the most comfortable, discreet way to straighten teeth. Invisalign has been around since 1997 and ideal for older adults. It involves a series of clear, plastic aligners that slowly but surely move teeth to their proper positions.
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. You can take them out of your mouth every time you eat, drink, brush, or floss. As long as you wear them for at least 22 hours a day, you’re bound to achieve your dream smile. You won’t have to make any major changes to your lifestyle or habits and can improve your teeth without any pain or discomfort.
While Invisalign treatment times vary from patient to patient, there’s a good chance you’ll complete yours in a year or less. Not only can Invisalign improve your confidence and make you feel good in your own skin, it may reduce your risk of health issues down the road.
With straight teeth, you’re less likely to experience problems with chewing, biting, and speech. You may also significantly reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease. In addition, you’ll find it easier to clean your teeth and keep them in optimal shape. Midlothian, VA dentist Dr. Brent Rusnak always urges patients to address any oral health concerns with their dentist or orthodontist.
The benefits of Invisalign are never ending, regardless of your age or stage of life. It may be just what you need to become a healthier, happier version of yourself.
