Proper oral health and a bright smile have no age limit; your dentist can help you achieve those things. They can also help you achieve a perfect smile through aligning techniques. If you want a straight smile, you may wonder if corrective aligners like Invisalign are right for you.
Corrective aligners can help you attain the straight teeth you’ve always wanted. Invisalign can help you achieve that through a flexible corrective process suitable for everyone.
How Is Invisalign Different From Traditional Braces?
Before considering if you can get Invisalign, understand why you might want to. The other way to straighten your smile is through metal braces.
Metal braces are a powerful treatment for teeth alignment. However, because of their strength, through the utilization of anchors and wires, braces can be more painful than Invisalign. Because braces can also make it difficult to brush your teeth properly, you may be more at risk for developing gum diseases such as gingivitis due to built-up plaque.
Not only can Invisalign be less painful, but can also allow more flexibility. Invisalign can also be taken out. This can allow you to eat freely and clean your teeth more effectively.
Is There an Age Limit?
Age is not a limiting factor when it comes to Invisalign. Children as young as six can benefit from Invisalign if they have orthodontic issues such as inadequate oral space for incoming teeth.
What is a limiting factor for Invisalign or any alignment is your oral health. If you suffer from oral disease or tooth decay, your dentist may recommend treatment first.
