Are you an adult who is unhappy with your smile, but don’t want to walk around with “metal-mouth” looking like a teenager? Thanks to advances in orthodontic treatments, Invisalign can offer you a convenient, appealing, and efficient option to straightening your teeth and achieving the beautiful smile of your dreams.
Invisalign utilizes a set of clear trays, or aligners, to gently and quickly move your teeth into the desired position. With Invisalign, your daily routine will undergo very few changes. Because the trays are removable, you will take them out to brush and floss normally. The aligners are easy to clean with a brush and warm water. This makes your morning and nighttime routine nearly the same as before treatment with Invisalign.
Because you remove the aligners when eating, there is no worry with Invisalign about the foods you eat damaging your orthodontia or about foods getting stuck in brackets or wires. Likewise, when playing sports there is no concern that your orthodontia will be damaged or will cut your mouth. Invisalign can be worn during contact sports, or removed if you prefer to wear a protective mouth guard while playing.
For adults, the greatest benefit of Invisalign is the aesthetic appeal. Because the aligners are clear, they are virtually unnoticeable and allow you to go about your day without worrying about a metallic smile. Invisalign treatment plans are also usually shorter than treatment with traditional braces. Schedule a consultation with a qualified orthodontist to find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign and get on your way to a straighter, more beautiful smile.
