I have spaces between my upper teeth. I contacted the doctor but they said as in am 40 years now so they are recommending invisalign which is too costly and not in my budget. Can I use braces at this age?

Yes you can ,or smile designing can be accomplished by intentional root canal treatment and crowns.

Yes ofcourse you can use braces. Both braces and invisalign can be used. Kindly see another dentist as age is not a factor to be considered for denying braces and advising invisalign.

Hello Lybrate user, yes braces are possible at your age too, im surprised why your doctor didn't gave you that option. Gaps can easily be closed by braces. Also there are other options like veneers and laminates for closing the gaps. Hope this helps.
