Over 50? Do you want straighter teeth? How Invisalign can help by Buttercup 7 Day Dental

Life begins at 50!
In the not too distant past, it may have been considered odd to invest in any kind of cosmetic treatment past the age of 50. Today, however, with more people taking trips later in life and finding love when they are a bit more seasoned, more and more people are investing in their smiles too!
As we age, our teeth can change; not only in the strength of the enamel, but they may also start to move or twist, creating issues with eating food, chewing and of course, smiling. While it may have once been acceptable to have all your teeth removed and to wear dentures, with the options available today, there are many ways that you can straighten your teeth while ensuring you keep your bite strength.
At Buttercup 7 Day Dental, we are proud to offer our patients over the age of 18 Invisalign Glasgow. As long as your oral health is generally good and our team decides that you are likely to benefit from this treatment, you are good to go!
But what are the benefits of choosing Invisalign Glasgow past the age of 50? Read on to find out!
Improves oral health
While it may seem counter-intuitive, having Invisalign Glasgow actually improves your overall oral health.
As this brace requires you to brush your teeth after each meal and/or snack before putting the aligner back into your mouth, your gums and teeth are less likely to accumulate plaque. Therefore, you are reducing your chances of developing gum disease or tooth decay, simply by following the care tips for this brace!
It may seem worrying to have to wear a brace; after all, when one hears the word brace, one typically visualises the orthodontic aligner, which is far from discreet.
This invisible brace is, well, invisible and unless you point it out to your friends and family, they will not be able to notice it at a first glance. So, you can get on with your life, without worrying about attracting stares from strangers or colleagues.
Another benefit of this brace? It is removable and can be taken out for dinner, dates, sports..whatever you want!
However, in order to gain the benefits of this aligner, our team will usually recommend that you wear it for a minimum of 22 hours per day. It is comfortable enough to sleep in, so just make sure you put it in before getting those 40 winks!
We know that as we get older, we have no time for treatments that take a long time.
So, another plus about this brace is that, on average, it will straighten your smile in about 6 months. Perfect if you have a holiday coming up or are attending a wedding.
And of course, with its discreet appearance and fast-acting design, we can guarantee that you will feel more confident. Obtaining a straighter smile with an invisible brace? What’s not to like about that?
