Can I straighten my teeth at any age?

我的年龄还适合矫正牙齿吗?

Clear aligners in recent years have been revolutionizing how people can go about transforming their smiles. Gone are the days where you would have to endure “brace face” and all the comments which come along with having braces. There will always be that one person during a dinner party or in your life that goes “EH, you put braces?”

佩戴隐形牙套吧,除非你向人提起,否则不会有人知道的。形象上美观,功能性高是现代消费者(尤其是年轻一代)选择隐形牙套的主要原因。

The advisable age range for suitability with clear aligners starts from 18 and goes all the way up to 59 years old. If you happen to fall between the specified age, it is a high possibility that you are suited to use clear aligners as your form of orthodontic treatment. And if you don’t? Don’t be discouraged, it does not mean you are not suitable.

Think of the age as a data point in a list of parameters that determines your suitability for clear aligners. Perhaps the most important parameter is the patient’s oral health. If you are 70 and still have healthy gums and teeth, there’s definitely a possibility of you using clear aligners to straighten out your teeth. Nothing is too late.

相较之下,如果是个小孩呢?毕竟矫正牙齿最主要的条件是--病患年轻且拥有健康的牙龈,我们以18岁作为最低年龄的条件是因为患者必须同意并且授权进行牙齿矫正。但如果是由父母为孩子询问,那隐形牙套便可以为18岁以下的患者进行矫正。首当的条件是健康的牙龈和发育齐全的牙齿。

So why wait any longer? If you fall between the age range and would like to straighten your teeth, check with us. If you aren’t between the ages of 18 – 59, contact us all the same and we can advise you based on your condition.
