Am I Too Old For Invisalign?

Modern cosmetic dental treatments use state-of-the-art technology, which shorten the length of the treatments and are more discreet than ever. Invisalign, already one of the most popular solutions for minor and moderate dental misalignments, is as efficient as traditional braces, but much more discreet and comfortable to wear and maintain. 

If you have heard about this option and you worry that you might be too old for it, the team at Cardinal Family Dentistry is here to encourage you to see how it works and discover why you might still be an ideal candidate, no matter your age. 

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a technology using 3D design to create a set of clear acrylic trays modeled after your teeth. They push your misaligned teeth in key points in order to align them. The dentist also places clear attachments to your teeth to provide the necessary resistance to push the teeth in the correct position. 

Invisalign is extremely discreet and takes little time to adjust to it. Depending on your case, you can achieve your ideal smile in just a few months of wearing Invisalign at least 22 hours a day. 

Who Is a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

Patients with mild or moderate orthodontic issues that do not require the realignment of the jaw are good candidates for Invisalign. A checkup is needed to determine that with accuracy. 

Too Old for Invisalign?

One of the most common misconceptions about orthodontic treatments is that they are only effective when you wear them as a child or teenager. However, as long as you’re committed to your orthodontic treatment and wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day, you can achieve a straighter smile at any age.
