Absolutely not! You’re never too old to straighten your smile and improve your function. Believe it or not, your teeth continue shifting as you age. That means if you’ve always had slightly crooked teeth or a mild overbite, these concerns may worsen over time.
You may think orthodontics is just for esthetics? Think again! Adult orthodontics not only enhance the appearance of your teeth and smile, but they also help protect against:
Worn teeth, therefore unnecessary restorations
When your teeth aren’t aligned well, they’re harder to clean. That means more staining, more decays and may mean more restorative treatments like dental crowns later. Why pay for these treatments when you can try adult orthodontics now?
When you come to a complimentary consultation, Dr. Sooyoun Chung and her team will go over options with you and offer what is best for your particular case based on type of tooth movement needed and your personality and lifestyle. These options are traditional braces, clear braces, self ligating braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign.
