Am I too old for braces?
You are never too old for a healthy, beautiful smile. Many adults never had an opportunity to wear braces during childhood, or they failed to wear their retainers, resulting in orthodontic relapse.
We can help.
At Matt McGee, DDS, Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer Invisalign clear braces as an alternative for our adult patients. Many adults want to avoid the appearance of metal braces and the impact they have on their day-to-day lives.
Invisalign provides an alternative that is often considered more comfortable and is definitely more discreet!
Using clear, BPA-free plastic, our lab will design custom aligner trays that gradually nudge teeth into proper alignment. For most patients, this means a new set of trays every two weeks or so.
Patient compliance is important, which is why Invisalign works best for older teens and adults. You should wear them for 22 hours or more each day, removing them only to eat, drink hot liquids, and to clean your teeth.
Patients love Invisalign because the system is so easy to use and does not irritate the tissue inside the mouth.
