Age is never a problem to start an orthodontic treatment.
The only contraindication for using orthodontics is a poor state of oral health or severe and uncontrolled gum disease. An adult patient with good dental hygiene and a healthy mouth can have orthodontics without any problem. It is important to understand that, once all the teeth have grown, it will be more difficult to influence the change in size of the jaws with our appliances.
For this reason, if the origin of the malocclusion is an incorrect size of the bones, adults have to undergo a surgery or compensation treatments have to be performed by moving only the teeth. But either way, it is never too late to get orthodontics! Nowadays, and thanks to the incorporation of aesthetic and comfortable appliances such as Invisalign, many adults have started
to consider correcting their teeth to have the smile they had always wanted and had never dared to since they refused treatments with wires. Our oldest Invisalign patient started treatment at the age of 74, and now he has a healthy, beautiful smile, and particularly, he can finally eat without the discomfort he had been enduring for so many years.
