Why Consider Orthodontics as an Older Adult?

Contrary to popular belief, orthodontic treatment isn’t just for kids and teenagers. Older adults often straighten their teeth for various reasons, from correcting misaligned teeth and crooked teeth to improving overall dental health. A straighter smile can also boost your self-confidence and overall health.

The Connection Between Oral Health and Systemic Health

Oral health is not just about maintaining a beautiful smile; it’s connected to your overall health.

Poor oral hygiene can lead to gum disease, which has been linked to systemic issues like heart disease diabetes, breathing disorders, and more. Older patients, in particular, should be aware of this connection. By straightening your teeth, you’re not just improving your dental health but also taking a proactive step towards better overall health.

Health Benefits of Straight Teeth

Straight teeth is not just a cosmetic procedure; it comes with a host of health benefits.

Straight teeth are easier to clean, leading to better oral hygiene and less risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Putting teeth into a proper bite also reduce tooth wear and the risk of injury from teeth clashing into each other. Straight teeth can even improve your digestion as they enable more effective chewing of food.

Common Orthodontic Issues in Seniors

Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth are not just a cosmetic issue; they can also contribute to tooth decay and gum disease. As we age, our teeth tend to shift, making older adults more susceptible to these problems.

Tooth Decay and Gum Disease

Poor oral hygiene can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, which are more prevalent in older adults. Orthodontic care can help in better oral hygiene by straightening teeth, making them easier to clean.

Missing Teeth and Bone Loss

Missing teeth can affect your bite and lead to bone loss in the jaw. Orthodontic treatment can help redistribute the force across your teeth, reducing the risk of further dental issues.

Treatment Options

Clear Ceramic Braces

For those who prefer a less noticeable option, clear ceramic braces are a great option. At our office we offer LightForce clear custom braces. These clear brackets are 3D printed to fit the contour of each tooth. They offer the same effectiveness as metal braces but are less visible and straighten teeth much faster than traditional braces.

Invisalign or Spark Clear Aligners

Clear aligners like Invisalign or Spark offer a virtually invisible way to get your teeth straightened. They are also removable, allowing for better oral hygiene.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are a tried-and-true method for straightening teeth. But they have had a major upgrade in technology since you were a kid. SPEED Braces are typically a cost-effective option and can correct a wide range of issues, from a bad bite to deep bite problems.

What does this mean for you? Less time wearing braces or aligners and quicker results. Plus, Aveo is designed to reduce the risk of tooth root resorption, a concern that can be especially relevant for older adults.
