Question: "Am I Too Old for Invisalign Treatment?"

"Am I Too Old for Invisalign Treatment?"

In short, no, you are never too old for orthodontic treatment as long as you have healthy teeth and gums. Orthodontists are experts in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics – properly aligned teeth and jaws – and possess the skills and experience to give you your best smile.  According to a recent study conducted by the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), adult (18 years+) patients now outweigh teens/kids in treatment.

As a part of looking healthy and with the understanding that on-camera meetings are here to stay, you may be curious about straightening your teeth.


A common misperception is that you may be too old for orthodontic treatment or your situation is too difficult to consider treatment but this is not the case. The deciding factor on whether a patient is a good candidate for treatment is the health of their teeth and gums not their age.

For some adults to reach optimal dental health, your dentist and orthodontist will work in partnership and may need to call in other dental specialists such as oral surgeons, periodontists, and endodontists.
