Orthodontic Treatment for Adults Over 50

Middle aged woman with adult braces in Colorado SpringsIf you are self-conscious about your smile but are afraid that it’s too late for you to consider getting braces or other orthodontic treatment, think again! In the last few decades, there have been more adults than ever choosing to get braces. This is because braces are more affordable and less obvious than ever.

Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Below are a few reasons why orthodontic treatment is a better option than ever for older adults:

  • Confidence is important at any age – As people age, it’s normal for confidence to start to wane. Not only do bodies change, but teeth do too. If you’re self-conscious of your smile, it might have an impact on your professional life, your personal relationships, and your self-esteem. Having a beautiful smile can improve your confidence immensely.
  • Oral health considerations – It can be more difficult to keep crooked teeth clean. The nooks and crannies of a crooked smile can allow bacteria and plaque to hide, causing dental cavities and tooth decay. Having a straight, properly-aligned smile can make it easier to keep your teeth clean, which is important as we age. Dental problems have been linked to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • More options than ever before – Lastly, there are numerous options for adults who want to have orthodontic treatment without it being too obvious. We now have tooth-colored braces, clear braces, and even Invisalign aligners, which are clear, removable trays. Dr. Lockett can help you choose the option that’s right for you and your situation!
