November 9th, 2017

When it comes to choosing Invisalign to straighten your teeth, a number of questions can stand between you and making a decision to straighten your malocclusion.

As you wonder how to find an orthodontist or navigate payment options, you might find yourself thinking…

Does Invisalign straighten teeth for any age?

Perhaps you didn’t get braces as a child—and now you’re in your 40s, wondering if it’s too late for orthodontic treatment. Or maybe you’re a teenager, and you’re not sure if you’re a candidate for Invisalign.

No matter your situation, we’re going to address your questions about Invisalign and the age groups it serves.

Let’s dive in…

Can teens use Invisalign?

The simple answer to your question is: yes.

When you choose Invisalign to correct your smile, you’ll avoid those feelings of self-consciousness and embarrassment that can come with traditional metal braces.

Not only does Invisalign straighten teeth suffering from a number of malocclusions, but it also…

  • Conceals your orthodontic treatment.
  • Makes it easy to clean your teeth.
  • Allows you to eat any foods you choose.

How does Invisalign empower adults?

Whether you’re in your 20s or 40s, if you’re an adult, you’ll find that Invisalign is an option with several advantages over traditional orthodontic treatment options.

Invisalign goes beyond straightening your teeth and helping you avoid poor oral hygiene, empowering you to avoid the metal-mouth look.

If your goal is to maintain a professional and well-kept appearance, you’ll want to choose Invisalign’s clear aligners.

Unlike metal braces, you don’t have to worry about…

  • Flashing a metallic smile for that corporate photo shoot.
  • Or other embarrassing social situations.
  • Eating at a dinner…and having to remove food from your braces.
  • Carefully inspecting your braces before going into work.
  • Conversing with colleagues or clients while attempting to hide your smile.

Your clear plastic aligners provide the confidence and convenience you need for life as a busy adult.

Does Invisalign straighten teeth for older adults?

If you’re far past the usual age for straightening teeth, you may struggle with questions like…

I’m past 40. Does Invisalign straighten teeth for older adults?

I’m in my 60s. Is it too late to correct my malocclusion?

Can I wear Invisalign at any age?

We’d encourage you to put your worries at rest and read this article. (Hint: we’ll explain that your teeth can move at any age…and we’ll reveal what makes you a candidate for treatment.)

If you’re an older adult, Invisalign is your ideal option for a single reason—convenience.

Because you can remove your aligners, you won’t need to…

  • Carefully clean food from your brackets and wiring after a meal.
  • Avoid certain foods that can damage your braces.
  • Undergo an adjustment from an orthodontist.

Whether you’re 60 or 16, there’s no need to wonder, “Does Invisalign straighten teeth for people in my age bracket?” Invisalign’s clear aligners can just as easily correct the overbite of a 17-year-old as it can the crossbite of a 57-year-old.

Toss aside any worries about your age, and take the first step toward transforming your smile.
