Too Old for Orthodontic Treatment?

You might think braces are only for kids. The truth is an attractive smile is important at any age! No matter how old you are, misaligned or crowded teeth can be a problem for your oral health. If you missed the opportunity to have orthodontic treatment as a child, it is never too late to achieve the beautiful healthy smile that you deserve. You can still have a successful orthodontic treatment today!

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, one out of five dental patients is over the age of 18. More and more adults are now seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their smiles. With straighter teeth, people feel better and healthier.

Oral problems, including missing teeth and fillings can sometimes impact treatment as an adult. This is why it is important to seek orthodontic treatment from an orthodontist that is highly trained and knowledgeable, specifically in this area. Dr. Morrow, of York Mills is a certified specialist in orthodontics. With our dedicated team and sophisticated diagnostic and treatment planning, we will customize your orthodontic treatment to help you reach your goals in a comfortable environment.

Some adults avoid braces or orthodontic treatment because they see braces as ‘awkward’ ‘unattractive’ or ‘uncomfortable’. The good news is that with modern orthodontics, we routinely offer more discrete and comfortable options such as lingual braces and Invisalign. Invisalign clear aligners are simple, effective and aesthetically pleasing. Your peers will barely be able to tell that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment!

To learn more about what you can do, please feel free to schedule a consultation with us, at York Mills Orthodontics, in North York. We will help you to achieve the smile that you have always dreamed of.
