Invisalign For Adults
A Convenient & Invisible Option For Straighter Teeth
Even if you have a beautiful smile, crooked teeth can keep your confidence from shining through. There are many adults who never had braces as a child, but even some who did have braces are still dealing with alignment issues that were not completely resolved or new ones that developed during adulthood. A common belief is that once you reach adulthood, it is too late to worry about straightening your teeth. Roughly 20% of all orthodontic patients are adults and even though your adult teeth may be more firmly rooted in place, it is still entirely possible to align your teeth in a more functional and aesthetically pleasing way.
Why should you consider Invisalign?
The thought of having braces as an adult may be embarrassing to some which leads to many adults seeking a different option. Invisalign is a versatile and convenient option for adults who are looking for treatment outside of traditional braces. This treatment involves using custom-made clear trays, similar to ones used for teeth whitening without the flexibility, that will gradually straighten your teeth.
Maybe you never had braces as a child, or maybe you are finding that your teeth have shifted over time. No matter your need for braces, it is never too late to straighten your teeth and put the confidence back into your smile with Invisalign. There are many reasons why Invisalign for adults should be a top choice for seeking orthodontic treatment for crooked teeth or other issues when compared to metal braces. A few of these reasons include:
• 1. Easy to Maintain
The Invisalign aligner is much easier to maintain than traditional metal braces and makes it easier for you to maintain your teeth. Dental care after eating is much easier with the Invisalign than with the brackets and wires of metal braces that tend to collect small pieces of food.
Before you eat, you take out your aligner, eat your meal, brush your teeth, and put your aligner back in to continue with your treatment without the worry of having food trapped in your wires or brackets.
• 2. Less Noticeable
The main concern of someone starting the Invisalign treatment is that others may be able to see their aligners. Invisalign is designed to be invisible, so no one will know you are wearing your aligners unless you tell them, making it a far less noticeable option than having metal or clear braces across the front of your teeth.
• 3. More Comfortable
Aligners straighten teeth more gradually, allowing Invisalign patients to have a more comfortable experience than patients with metal braces. The adjustment period for the aligners is also shorter, resulting in fewer mouth sores and other related issues that would be associated with rough brackets and edges of traditional braces. When it comes to adult orthodontic treatment, less pain and discomfort is a major benefit.
• 4. Fewer Appointments
Because the brackets and wires of metal braces can break or be knocked out of alignment, they require more frequent visits to the orthodontist. With Invisalign, there is no need to worry about serious issues occurring with your aligners. You will typically only wear a set for roughly two weeks and then switch to a new set, lessening your chance of needing to schedule an emergency appointment.
Invisalign treatment for a healthier, more confident smile
Between schooling, work, and taking care of your family, you may think there just isn’t enough time to get treatment to straighten your teeth. With a happy smile, your confidence is boosted, helping you to be your best self and connect with people in a better way!
Improving your smile with Invisalign for adults, or even regular braces can improve your life and your overall dental health. The most important reason you should consider adult orthodontic treatment is to improve the function of the jaw. By correcting misalignments, crowding, and other issues, you can not only improve jaw function but you can also prevent more serious problems down the road.
Invisalign is a versatile treatment option that can be used to treat moderate and even some severe issues while also being an effective treatment for correcting aesthetic misalignments. Whether you have a crowded area of your mouth that is more prone to cavities or you just want to improve your smile, Invisalign is a comfortable and convenient way to correct your smile.
A happy smile is the prettiest outfit you can wear!
I wish these were around when I had to get braces back in the 1970’s. So jealous that no one will have to know the pain of a wire cutting the inside of your cheeks.
Not only the pain, the old braces looked so ugly also. These invisibles are great, aren’t they!? Thank for coming over, Jennifer 🙂
