Adults and Braces: How Old is Too Old? Marietta, GA
Invisalign adult patient. Happy woman putting on a clear aligner as a part of adult orthodontic treatment at dentistry in Marietta, GA.

Is it possible to be too old for braces? Not really! Orthodontic therapy, including adult braces, is a great way to improve your oral health, appearance, and the lifespan of your smile.

Straighter Teeth are Healthier Teeth

Have you always been prone to problems like gum disease or tooth decay? Crowding and crooked teeth are more difficult to keep clean. That means there are usually more bacteria around them, between them and under their gumlines after brushing. As a result, those teeth are more susceptible to early tooth loss and cavities. By straightening them out into proper alignment, oral hygiene can be improved and the lifespan of the tooth extended.

Prevent Premature Tooth Wear

As you bite your teeth together over the years, your teeth will wear down. This is just a normal part of the aging process. Unfortunately, if you have a misaligned bite where teeth do not come together properly – they will wear down prematurely. Early tooth wear can cause flat, sharp teeth. It also adds strain to restorations like crowns and fillings, causing them to crack and break. Correcting the bite relationship will help the teeth wear normally.

While we’re on the topic of abnormal biting relationships, it’s worth noting that those conditions may also lead to complications like TMJ disorder. That’s why orthodontic therapy is considered to be part of comprehensive TMJ/TMD treatments.
