Do Adults Get Orthodontic Treatment?

Welcome to Friday Focus. My name is Doctor “O” with iSmiles Orthodontics, your go to orthodontist in Irvine, California. Today I want to clarify that, despite many people’s perceptions, orthodontic treatments are not just for children.

You are never to old to enjoy the benefits of orthodontic treatment. As a matter of fact, 1 in every 5 people that have orthodontic treatments is over 21 years of age. All of us understand how beneficial a gorgeous smile can be, especially when it comes to building self-esteem (and making you look younger). A bad bite impacts much more than appearance, it can also lead to health problems. Because misaligned teeth are hard to clean it can cause tooth decay and eventually severe periodontal issues. Thanks to innovative advancements in orthodontic technologies, treating patients of all ages is easier than ever.

At our practice, here in Irvine, we actually see a large number of adult orthodontic patients. There is no age limit for individuals considering orthodontic treatment. If you find yourself covering your mouth when you smile, then it’s possible you could benefit from orthodontic treatment. We regularly see patients between the ages of 40 and 70. In fact our oldest patient was 74.

Clearly, orthodontic treatment can benefit anyone at any age. What most people don’t understand is the biology that allows teeth to move works the same for healthy individuals of all ages.

Bottom line, orthodontic treatment can impact your life no matter how young or how old you may be.

It’s never too late to improve your smile with orthodontics, so when considering orthodontic treatment if you thought age might affect the success of treatment think again.

If you’d like to find out more about the benefits of adult focused orthodontics, schedule a complimentary consultation at iSmiles Orthodontics in Irvine today.
