Can Adults Still Get Invisalign?

Can Adults Still Get Invisalign?Having crooked or overlapping teeth can make it embarrassing to smile. It can also negatively impact your oral health by making your bite unstable, which could lead to problems down the road. We have good news: even adults can still straighten their teeth!

What Are Invisible Braces?

Dr. Vernon Sheen is a Annapolis MD Invisalign® provider offering treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign offers a discreet way to achieve a straighter smile for both adults and teens. The system gently and discreetly straightens your teeth, usually in only a little over a year, without requiring changes to your daily activities.

Patients that wear Invisalign braces can still enjoy their favorite foods and easily maintain good oral hygiene. The aligners are designed to be worn for about 22 hours a day without irritating the gums or sensitive areas of the mouth. And when it’s time to clean your teeth or swap the braces out for new ones based on the treatment plan, the aligners are easy to remove.

Am I Too Old For Invisalign?

Even though our teeth have stopped growing and moving by adulthood, that does not mean you are too old or it’s too late for you to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. Many adults get traditional braces or use Invisalign invisible braces with positive results. Invisalign can be used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues in adults and some teens, and it can also be used to address minor movements of teeth after previous traditional orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is also an option to treat underbite, overbite, and other tooth spacing concerns.

Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?

Crooked or overlapping teeth are more than a cosmetic issue. Crooked teeth are more susceptible to damage and decay which may cause more problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbite issues can also negatively affect dental health by changing the stability of your bite. In addition, teeth that are straight and properly spaced are easier to brush and floss, reducing your risk of tooth decay and plaque buildup.
