Can Invisalign® Work on Patients Over 50?
If you’re an older man or woman in the Redondo Beach area who has always been unhappy with your crooked smile, you may be wondering if you still have options to correct your teeth. After years of always putting everyone before yourself, you deserve to have the smile you’ve always wanted! At Redondo Beach Dental Group, our doctors want to help you meet your aesthetic goals by giving you get the smile of your dreams with Invisalign® – no matter your age!
What Is Invisalign®?
Redondo Beach seniors often choose to have their teeth straightened using Invisalign® because they can avoid having to deal with the restrictions that come with traditional metal braces. Invisalign® treatments come in a series of clear aligners that are removable, and by changing the aligners over the course of your treatment, your teeth will gradually straighten.
Invisalign® aligners are made out of a clear, thin, thermoplastic material called SmartTrack®, and are FDA-approved. They are designed uniquely for each person and are virtually invisible. The biggest perk that most patients over 50 love is that they remove the aligners to eat or drink, or for special occasions like family pictures. How convenient!
Is Invisalign® a Real Option for Patients Over 50?
Our doctors have extensive experience treating patients of any age with Invisalign®, and though many people think you can’t fix your smile over a certain age, this treatment is far from being restricted to just teens and young adults. Our doctors actually see more older adults for Invisalign® treatments than younger people because most older adults want a straighter smile, but do not want to deal with traditional braces.
And if you’re like most people who live in the Redondo Beach area, you don’t want to spend more time than necessary to get that perfect smile. At our practice, we offer all types of Invisalign®, and thanks to our advanced 3D iTero® technology, we can complete your treatment on a faster timeline compared to many other dental offices that offer Invisalign®.
