Are adults too old for Invisalign treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is typically associated with children and teens, but anyone with healthy teeth and gums can have their teeth straightened. Our Langley dentists explain why Invisalign is an ideal way for adults to straighten their smile.


Traditionally it was unusual for adults to be spotted wearing braces. Now, thanks in part to Invisalign's clear orthodontic aligners, more adults are choosing to correct alignment issues that were left untreated in childhood.

In the past, many adults would have felt self-conscious about straightening their teeth with traditional metal braces and wires. Braces just aren't compatible with the professional appearance that many adults want to maintain in their personal lives or in the workplace.

Invisalign lets adults get on with their busy schedules without worrying about what others might think of their orthodontic treatment. 

Invisalign aligners are made from very thin clear plastic that is hardly noticeable to other people.

Every clear aligner in the treatment series is custom made for patient's unique smile, and is created to gradually guide the teeth into the desired positions.

Invisalign's aligners are also removable. Adults won't need to worry about what to eat while out at business lunches or on dinner dates. Discreetly remove the aligners and store them in their handy container while you enjoy your meal. Once the meal is over just step away to brush and floss your teeth, rinse the aligners, and pop them back onto your teeth. No need to miss out on special foods or to change your diet!
