As an adult, you know how important it is to have a beautiful smile. Your smile is one of the most noticeable of all of your features. Whether you are going for an interview, working with clients or have a social gathering, you want a smile that you can count on. If you are embarrassed or self-conscious because you need orthodontic treatment, it can lead to you avoiding others. It doesn’t matter how old you are. It is never too late to enhance your smile, and you can do so without traditional braces. Invisalign® will make you want to flash your pearly whites everywhere you go once your treatment is over.
How Invisalign® Differs from Traditional Braces
When you consider orthodontic treatment, the first thing that is likely to come to your mind is a mouth full of metal brackets and wires. While traditional braces are still a popular option, you have plenty of choices. Thanks to exciting advances in the field of orthodontics, you can now choose Invisalign® for orthodontic treatment. Teens and adults are leaning toward this option because it is practically invisible.
With Invisalign®, our orthodontists will create clear aligners that are customized to fit your teeth. A type of medical-grade plastic is used that is safe for your mouth and durable. The aligners are switched every two weeks to accommodate subtle adjustments in your mouth.
What are the Advantages of Invisalign®?
With Invisalign®, you have more flexibility. You can remove your aligners when you are cleaning your teeth or if you have a sporting event. If you are planning a special occasion, you can remove your aligners and replace them later. It’s important to remember that you should wear them for at least 22 hours every day. You’ll find that the aligners are comfortable and you won’t even notice them once you get used to them. Others won’t notice them either.
Orthodontic Treatment Offers You More than a Nice Smile
When you choose Invisalign®, you will be getting more than a nicely adjusted set of teeth. When your teeth are properly aligned, it makes it easier to keep your teeth clean. You’ll have a healthier mouth. You may also avoid other problems that are the result of an improper bite, such as sleep apnea or a TMJ disorder. When you agree to orthodontic treatment, you are taking care of your teeth and your health at the same time.
