Don't let age stop you from having the straight teeth you've always dreamed of. Braces aren't just for kids anymore. More than 1 million grown-ups are sporting some form of braces, double the number from 10 years ago, according to the American Association or Orthodontists (AAO).
Numerous technological advances have made braces less noticeable, less painful and even less time-consuming. As America's baby boomers have become more health conscious, they're rejecting the notion that loosing teeth and dentures are a routine part of growing older.
Having straight teeth is important not only for children, but for adults as well. As we grow older, our teeth tend to grow inward, creating crowding - a common problem for many teens and adults. As a result, it may be difficult to keep teeth clean and healthy. Straightening your teeth with the Invisalign system can treat the crowding and thereby help you maintain your dental health. It can also help you get the smile you've always wanted!
