Crooked or overlapping teeth can affect your oral health and your confidence, making you uncomfortable with your smile. Misaligned teeth can change the stability and function of your bite, leading to problems in the future like worn teeth, broken teeth, or tooth decay.
Is it ever too late for Invisalign? Adults and teens can benefit from these clear aligners for a straighter, healthier smile. Dr. Ratti Handa is an Invisalign provider in Acton, MA helping patients of all ages achieve their best look.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Dr. Handa offers treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign offers a discreet way to achieve a new smile for both adults and teens. The system will gently and discreetly reposition your teeth in a little over a year, with little impact on your daily activities.
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign patients can still enjoy their favorite foods and easily maintain good oral hygiene. The aligners are designed to fit comfortably in the mouth and worn almost all the time, only removed when necessary to clean teeth or when it’s time to swap them out according to your treatment plan.
Am I Too Old For Invisalign?
Invisalign can treat mild to moderate orthodontic cases, even in adults. Although teeth are set in place by adulthood, they can still be manipulated and straightened to improve the appearance and function of your smile. It can also correct minor tooth movement after previous treatment with braces, or different bite concerns such as overbite or underbite.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth is more than a cosmetic procedure. Crooked teeth are more prone to damage and decay and may cause more problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbite issues can also affect dental health by changing the stability of your bite. Plus, teeth that are aligned properly are easier to brush and floss, reducing your chances of decay and plaque buildup.
