Treatment for the over 50s

Age is no barrier to looking and feeling your best 

It is often said life begins at 40. But, with most of us living much longer, it could be argued that 50 is the new 40. So why not embrace your golden years with a brand new smile? 

Orthodontic treatment for adults

Braces aren’t just for teenagers, though you may remember having a mouthful of metal in your younger days. While teenage teeth and jaws are certainly more malleable, at Helix House Orthodontics we are able to get great results for our adult patients too. 

One of the side effects of getting older is a loss in collagen. This affects the skin, leading to reduced volume and hollows, but it also affects the mouth, making your lower teeth more visible with age. It can also cause your teeth to move and become crooked or loose. 

If you have crooked teeth that are bothering you, or perhaps your previously straightened teeth have returned to their original position, we can recommend a course of orthodontic treatment. What’s more, our range of invisible treatment options mean your braces won’t be visible.

Healthy teeth and gums

Gum health, which is one of the first things to deteriorate with age, needs to be maintained with regular cleaning, both at home and professionally. We can show you how to manage this at home and recommend the best products for your mouth and well-being. 

Age-related oral health issues

Age-related hormonal changes can bring about the problem of a dry mouth. This can affect day-to-day activities such as talking and eating. Our Oral Facial Consultant can help diagnose dry mouth problems and prescribe necessary medications to ease your discomfort. 

Facial pain, which appears to have no obvious cause, can also affect older women. A detailed consultation with our Oral Facial Consultant may help to identify and treat this debilitating condition.
