Are you concerned you are “too old” for braces or orthodontic treatment? The truth is that age does not determine if you would be a good candidate for orthodontic treatment. The primary factors that are considered include your current overall health, your oral health and your orthodontic diagnosis. These factors will determine if you are a candidate for treatment at myORTHODONTIST.
Over the last 20 years, an increasing amount of adults have sought out an orthodontic consultation and undergone treatment. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, an average of 1 in 5 orthodontic patients in the US and Canada are adults.
If you are an adult and you are unhappy with your smile, do not hesitate to see an orthodontist. A referral for orthodontic treatment is not necessary! You can plan your orthodontic consultation with a simple phone call to our office, and we can help determine if orthodontic treatment is right for you. Some treatments, including Invisalign, are great for patients who are older and looking for a more subtle approach to orthodontic treatment.
Our orthodontic team will conduct a detailed clinical exam and assess your medical history. This way we can determine if there are any conditions that may affect your orthodontic treatment plan. We will assess the state of your your bite and will discuss what you might expect from orthodontic treatment. We will also outline potential treatment duration, cost estimates and any other information you may require.
When it comes to wanting a beautiful smile and straight teeth, age is not a limit! Schedule your smile consultation with us at one of our Calgary locations (McKenzie Towne) or at our Okotoks location!
