Are there age limits on Invisalign?
Everyone deserves a healthy and attractive smile at any age! Invisalign, an innovative orthodontic option, is used to straighten out mild to moderate misalignments in older teenagers and adults.
If you have misaligned teeth and are an older teenager or an adult, you might be a candidate for Invisalign!
There is no "magic age" when Invisalign is no longer effective. Determining whether you are a good candidate depends on other factors instead, including:
- The type and severity of the misalignment you are seeking to correct
- Your ultimate goals
- Your level of physical and dental health
If you are considering orthodontic treatment, call our Sarasota dental office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Aygen. He can evaluate your teeth and discuss your goals with you to determine whether Invisalign is a good treatment option.
Correcting misalignments isn't just an "esthetic" issue, either. Dental misalignments can negatively impact your oral health in a number of ways. For instance, teeth that are crowded, twisted, or overlapping will be more difficult to keep clean, putting you at higher risk for cavities and gum disease. Misalignments can also cause excess wear and tear in an area of your mouth, which can lead to cracks and fractures, loose teeth, and problems like clenching, grinding, and painful joint dysfunctions.
We'd love to help you have a healthier, more attractive smile, no matter your age!
