About 40% of our orthodontic patients are adults. Increasingly, adults are becoming more aware about the benefits of straight teeth and we now know that tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structures are healthy.
Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay and any abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces and headaches.
Straight teeth are easier to clean, and several studies have shown the link between heart disease and periodontal disease. Age in itself is not a barrier for orthodontic treatment.
People are living longer and expecting a better quality of life. If the value of having and keeping straight teeth is important to you, then you should think about speaking to one of our orthodontists about the best treatment options for you.
At Fresh Smiles we recommend the use the Invisalign Clear Removable Aligner System. Invisalign offers convenience and a much easier way to keep your teeth and gums clean, and your breath odour free.
Normal Braces are harder to keep clean than the Invisalign Clear Aligner System. Here at Fresh Smiles Belmont and Newtown we can help you avoid the risk of tooth decay while wearing braces. This is less of a problem with Invisalign Clear Aligner System
