Always keep your smile. That’s how I explain my long life. – Jeanne Calment

Jeanne Calment was a French woman who lived until she was over 122 years old, and she believed that her constant smile was the reason for her long life. Mrs. Calment didn’t have access to orthodontic care to repair her teeth because she was born in 1875, but you can visit an orthodontist for an evaluation to fix your smile. Today, more individuals are living to an older age, and if you were unable to wear braces as a child, then it isn’t too late to have an attractive smile and strong bite.

It Is Easy to Have an Orthodontic Evaluation to Fix Your Smile

Teenagers and adults with mild malocclusions are able to wear clear plastic aligners designed by Invisalign. These orthodontic devices are removable, but you should wear the items as much as possible, including while you are asleep. However, children can only wear wires and brackets on their teeth because they are growing rapidly. With an orthodontic evaluation, it is easy to know what type of treatment is required for your types of malocclusions. If you require aligners, then you must wear the devices for approximately one year, but treatment with braces can require two to four years. That may seem like a long time to undergo orthodontic treatment, but you might live as long as Mrs. Calment, making it worthwhile.
