Are you bothered by your crooked, gapped or crowded teeth as an adult? Do you wish you had braces when you were a child? Don’t worry; adult orthodontics aren’t as scary as you may think. In fact, this specialized field of dentistry has made remarkable advancements in the past 15 years. While an orthodontist may have suggested metal braces to straighten your smile as a kid, you may now qualify for Invisalign®.
Invisalign® wearers can avoid the embarrassing metal brackets and uncomfortable wires of traditional braces, yet end up with the same beautiful results. Invisalign relies on a series of clear, removable orthodontic aligners that gently shift the teeth shift into better position over time. Patients will wear each set of customized aligners for about two weeks before progressing to the next provided set of aligners. Most importantly, Invisalign seems to solve the drawbacks of undergoing orthodontic treatment as an adult.
Your Appearance is Improved, Never Threatened
It may not be feasible to wear metal braces as an adult, especially if you are in the public eye or stay too busy for frequent orthodontic visits. With Invisalign, you can trust that your teeth are undergoing correction without compromise to your self-esteem in the process. A straight smile offers numerous benefits towards your overall appearance, self-confidence and emotional health. An attractive smile can even boost your career success.
You’ll Gain a Healthier Smile too!
Besides the cosmetic gain, there are also some important health benefits in having straight teeth. Crooked teeth can create easy places for food and bacteria to get stuck, causing plaque build-up and putting you at risk for decay and gum disease. Unlike fixed braces, Invisalign makes it easy to keep your teeth and gums clean during treatment, as you can conveniently take your aligners out to brush, floss and eat.
