Adult Braces – Is it too late to have straighter teeth?

Adult Braces – Is it too late to have straighter teeth? The simple answer is no. Orthodontic treatment is no longer about uncomfortable metal braces just for teenagers. Adults of all ages can now enjoy the benefits of straighter teeth thanks to a range of modern, almost invisible aligners and adult braces designed to suit every type of lifestyle.

Missed out on braces early on in life?

Perhaps you missed out on having braces when you were a child, and now maybe you’re in your 30s, 40s or 50+and wondering if it’s too late? Maybe you think you might have to wear braces for years and it will cost too much to get results. Thankfully help is at hand. It is never too late to have braces to straighten your teeth - even in your 80s or 90s- as long as your teeth are healthy enough to allow the necessary movement then we can help.

At Zental in Barnet, we know everything there is to know about straightening teeth with and without the use of conventional braces, no matter how old you are. Just as long as your teeth and gums are reasonably strong and healthy, in some cases adult braces treatment can take only a matter of a few months.

The benefits of Invisalign™

Invisalign is one of our most popular teeth-straightening systems here in Barnet. Working to reposition teeth little by little using a series of transparent, custom-made plastic aligners. Almost invisible in the mouth with no wires or brackets, Invisalign removable aligners are replaced every two weeks for a new set. Each new aligner is designed just for you to gradually and gently move crooked teeth into their correct final position.

Invisalign aligners should be worn ideally for 22 hours a day. Because they’re removable they can be taken out for eating the food of your choice, and importantly for brushing and flossing to keep your mouth clean and healthy throughout your treatment.

Taking the first step towards adult braces

Age is no barrier to straighter teeth, and if you don’t like the idea of fixed braces, then Invisalign clear aligners could be the ideal solution. As every case is different, at Zental in Barnet we always begin with an in-depth consultation to assess your dental health and decide which orthodontic treatment is right for you.
