Senior orthodontics

Orthodontics for seniors

With age, teeth change. In addition to the fact that the teeth become more and more yellow or even darker, they lose their alignment. Over time, teeth, especially in the lower arch, begin to overlap. Often the two arches are reduced at the level of the lateral sectors, giving the impression when you smile that teeth are missing even though they are just hidden.

Apart from the above inconveniences, patients also experience worn, chipped teeth, broken dental restorations, increased plaque accumulation, gum recession and even periodontal disease.

Fortunately, there is good news: anti-aging dentistry can reverse the process in orthodontics, periodontics and cosmetic dentistry.

Orthodontic treatments are very widespread today among adults and older adults. Dr. Lebahar will use the orthodontic technique best suited to your lifestyle and oral health. He will offer you:

  • either transparent orthodontic braces glued to the visible side of the teeth,
  • either lingual orthodontic braces, that is to say glued to the non-visible side of the teeth (Incognito expertise),
  • or invisible orthodontic aligners (Invisalign expertise).

Nowadays, adults no longer have to live with small, contracted arches that result from aging teeth. It is possible for them to have a broad, rejuvenated smile without the use of traditional metal braces.

Dr Lebahar, orthodontist in Thonon-les-Bains, is a platinum expert for these cutting-edge techniques in orthodontics. Don’t hesitate to ask him for advice.
