No! There is nothing about your age specifically that makes you not suitable for orthodontic treatment. We have many patients in their late 60s & 70s who have successfully gone through teeth straightening.
There can be some complications to consider – your periodontal condition (recession, bone loss, loose teeth), missing teeth or crowns or implants, and certain medications can affect how teeth and bone move. It’s important that we have thorough consultation and exam before deciding on which treatment options and goals will be best for you.
And there are many benefits to having your teeth straightened – it may be easier to clean and have a healthier mouth, or you need more space to have a tooth repaired or some cosmetic work done, or perhaps your bite has changed and is now uncomfortable or destructive. All of these problems can be addressed.
Please give us a call at (707) 938 – 5255 for your complimentary consultation today!
