Is It Too Late For Invisalign?

Are you tired of living with crooked or overlapping teeth? Does feeling embarrassed or self-conscious about your smile have you down? Crooked teeth are problematic for more than cosmetic reasons. They can also negatively affect your oral health by impacting bite stability and functioning, leading to problems down the road.

What Are Invisible Braces?

Coastal Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry is a Virginia Beach, VA Invisalign® provider offering treatment with clear dental aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic issues. Invisalign offers a way for both adults and teens to discreetly correct crooked and crowded teeth. The system will gently reposition your teeth in only a year, with minimal impact on your daily activities.

Invisalign patients can still enjoy their favorite foods and maintain proper oral hygiene using this therapy. The clear aligners are custom-fitted by your Coastal Dentistry to the patient’s mouth for maximum comfort as they will usually be wearing them for about 22 hours each day. However, the Invisalign system is designed not to irritate the gums or sensitive areas of the mouth and be easily removed when it’s time to handle daily oral hygiene or swap them out for another set based on your treatment plan.

Am I Too Old For Invisalign?

By adulthood, our teeth have settled in place but that doesn’t mean you are too old or it’s too late to consider straightening your teeth with orthodontic treatment. Many adults are fitted with traditional metal braces or use the Invisalign system with positive results. Invisalign can treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can be used to address minor movement of teeth after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign can also be prescribed to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.

Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?

Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth can help prevent serious dental health issues. Crooked teeth are more prone to being damaged and to tooth decay, which can lead to more serious problems in the future. Overbite and underbite issues can change the stability of your bite,causing TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder) and excessive wear on teeth. Plus, teeth that are aligned properly are easier to brush and floss, making you less likely to suffer the effects of plaque buildup and tooth decay.
