83 Year Old Patient Talks About Her Adult Orthodontic Experience

Orthodontics isn’t just for kids and teens anymore. At Magic Smiles, we are big believers that – young or old – it is never too late to have a beautiful, healthy smile. More and more adults are turning to orthodontics to correct teeth and bite problems and to enjoy the aesthetic and oral health benefits that a healthy smile can bring.

One of our senior adult patients, an 83 year old woman, completed her orthodontic treatment and spoke with us afterward about her experience.

“I wanted to do this 20 years ago. When I found out that my bite opened, I refused to have any surgery. Time went on and I kept watching my teeth – especially my bottom teeth – getting more crooked. Pretty soon, one of these teeth down here was sticking up. And I said, darn it, I’m gonna go take care of it. I’m 83 and I thought, ‘I don’t know how long I’m going to live, but I’m going to do it anyway.’”

When asked why she chose Magic Smiles and what her experience had been like, she said:

“I came here because my grandson [was a patient] and had to have a lot of orthodontia work done. You have such a wonderful team here and it’s just been great!”
