A beautiful smile never grows old, yet some people wonder whether it’s ‘too late’ for them to straighten their teeth and acquire the beautiful smile they’ve dreamed of. For those asking that very question, the answer is “no.”
First, we think it’s never to late to follow your dream or do something that will bring you joy. If looking into the mirror and seeing straighter teeth will make you happy, then you shouldn’t rule out braces! Some adults are hesitant, and don’t love the idea of smiling and showing off their “metal mouth” while in the straightening process. Luckily, Invisalign® straightens teeth in a nearly invisible way.
Second, having straighter teeth can be good for your oral hygiene—something we believe should always be a priority, regardless of age. By straightening teeth and making sure they fit together properly, you reduce your risk of getting food particles stuck between teeth, which can contribute to cavities and bad breath. Having teeth that align properly also decreases wear and can help keep you enamel in good shape.
