For decades, braces were a form of treatment you would most commonly see on a teenager. Kids would be seen sporting metal brackets and wires, completing this awkward rite of passage into adulthood. Today, braces are used on patients of all ages, even well into adulthood. People who you may typically think of as addressing dental needs with dental bridges or dentures are now visiting their dentist for braces.
Orthodontic treatment is more convenient and comfortable than pulling teeth or getting used to a denture appliance. The forms of braces available today create a more private treatment experience than has ever been possible. Today, people can straighten their teeth without having to show a mouthful of metal. Now, we are able to keep our treatment discreet, using methods like Invisalign instead of standard braces. In our downtown LA dental office, we believe that getting older does not equate to not caring about your appearance. We serve patients of various ages with state-of-the-art Invisalign with great success.
We live in a time when seniors are maintaining a greater degree of activity. It remains important, regardless of whether you are still active in a professional career, to feel good about your overall appearance. Part of this is having confidence in your smile, which is one of the first things people will notice about you. As we age, our oral structure may change, leaving us feeling not so great about how our teeth look. There is a solution, though – Invisalign.
The discreet appearance of Invisalign is appreciated by people of all ages. Older patients, even into their seventies, can finally feel comfortable correcting cosmetic and bite issues that they have felt embarrassed about for years. Invisalign aligners are comfortable and are barely noticed in the smile, allowing for a high amount of confidence throughout treatment.
The way we straighten teeth has changed significantly over the past several years. Today, people of all ages can bring their smiles to a more beautiful, healthy state using Invisalign. Contact our office in downtown LA for your consultation with Dr. Mungcal.
