Why You’re Never Too Old to Get Braces

Orthodontic issues can range from small gaps between teeth to severe overcrowding. If you’re unhappy with your smile due to misaligned teeth or an uneven bite, don’t let your age stop you from pursuing the smile of your dreams – there’s no upper age limit for braces! In fact, there are several reasons you’re never “too old” to talk to your orthodontist about your treatment options.

Reason #1: You’re Never “Too Old” to Love Your Smile

At every age, you deserve a smile that you’re proud of. One that you’re happy to show off when taking a picture, meeting someone new, or catching up with an old friend. If the position of your teeth makes you feel self-conscious about your smile, then it’s time to schedule a consultation with your orthodontist. You may even be a candidate for discreet braces, like Invisalign, which allows you to pursue your smile goals without the metal!

Reason #2: You’re Never “Too Old” to Improve Your Oral Health

Braces do more than just benefit the appearance of your smile; they benefit your oral health as well. By moving your teeth into their properly aligned positions, your orthodontist can eliminate unique crevices that food particles and plaque can hide in. As a result, orthodontic treatment can actually decrease your chances of developing serious oral health concerns, like gum disease and cavities.

Reason #3: You’re Never “Too Old” to Align Your Bite

If your upper and lower jaws don’t come together evenly, there’s a good chance your food isn’t being broken down properly. This can result in chronic indigestion and even nutrient deficiencies over time. If that wasn’t reason enough to get braces, an uneven bite can also increase your chances of grinding and clenching your teeth. So, don’t put off scheduling an appointment. The sooner you do, the sooner your orthodontist can correct your bite!

Reason #4: You’re Never “Too Old” to Invest in Yourself

It’s cliché, but it’s true! Whether you’re 30, 50, or 70, you deserve to have a smile that you love. If you’re not quite there yet, that’s okay – that’s where braces come in. It’s an investment in your smile and yourself.
