No matter what your age is, It’s never too late to do things that will boost your confidence — that includes improving your smile. One survey reports that seven in 10 people feel self conscious about their teeth. Further, Dentistry Today reports that more than a quarter of people don’t even like smiling because of how their teeth look.
Everyone deserves to have a smile they’re proud of, including seniors. The good news is that can help you achieve that level of confidence. Teeth aligners and tooth implants are two options that may be a fit for you. Here’s an explainer on what’s involved with these procedures and ways to make these treatments more affordable.
If you’ve always wanted to straighten but don’t want to deal with high maintenance braces, then teeth aligners are a great alternative. They can help straighten your teeth over time without having to endure harsh brackets or wires. Plus, teeth aligners can be taken on and off rather than being permanently attached to your teeth.
Teeth aligners are discreet, so most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing them. It’s perfect for seniors who have moderately crowded teeth or mild spacing issues. Depending on your teeth, you could have perfectly straight teeth in as little as 10 to 24 months.
