Question No. 1: Do I still get cavities now that I’m older?

Unfortunately, tooth decay attacks smiles of all ages. So yes, you can still get cavities now that you are older. However, you can prevent them and keep your oral health in tip-top shape if you desire. You can do so by keeping up on oral hygiene, visiting your dentist for your regular checkup, and having a healthy and balanced diet.

Question No. 2: Can I get braces as an adult?

Yes, you are more than welcome to align your teeth with braces as an adult. There is no shame in conquering your smile dreams while you are older. Fortunately, there are many different types of braces that can even help you align your smile more comfortably! So, please feel free to schedule a consultation with your orthodontist to see if orthodontic treatment is right for you.

Question No. 3: What does smoking do to my smile and oral health?

When you smoke, your smile is severely affected. This is because the tobacco and related chemicals discolor the teeth, irritate the gums, and promote dry mouth, which oftentimes results in bad breath and cavities. Smoking can also increase your chances of having gum disease and oral cancer. It’s important to avoid smoking altogether.
