Are You Too Old To Get Braces?

Invisible Invisalign Braces Kenmore Brisbane

Did you know the number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment (braces) is at an all time high?

Our adult patients who’ve had their teeth straightened with braces tell us that having straighter teeth has made big improvements in their lives, including their careers and personal relationships. And all because they feel more confident and attractive due to their new and improved smile.

People are telling us it’s time for them to get their smile on track after putting it off for so long or thinking there was nothing they could do about their crowded, crooked smiles.

Are you one of those people who has gone years—even decades—trying to hide your teeth, believing you can’t get braces because you are too old?

The good news is that you can get braces no matter what your age and modern technology means the process of getting braces is barely noticeable, so you can have the lifetime benefits of improved dental health and a more attractive smile.

Does this sound familiar? Are these some of the reasons why you haven’t gone ahead and got the straighter teeth you’ve always wished for:

“What will others think?”,
“How will I look?”,
“Am I too old?” 

Well many of our patients had the same concerns as you but the overwhelming majority said their concerns vanished when their treatment began. And 92% said they would recommend getting braces to their friends and family as it has made such a difference to how they feel about themselves.

The good news doesn’t stop there – those advances in technology have shortened the time in treatment, in some case you get have straighter teeth in as little as six months. Plus you don’t have to be visiting the dentist every couple of weeks anymore.

Having braces as an adult is very do-able and manageable! Our patients find that braces can complement their lifestyles, and is compatible with their professional needs and their social lives.

And to their delight most patients begin to see changes in their smiles not long after treatment begins, which excites them and us.

Once they complete treatment they always say the end result was worth it and wondered why they had been putting it off for so long.

Do you want straight teeth without the hassle of traditional braces? Well now you can get the beautiful smile of your dreams without having brackets and wires on your teeth.
