Long ago, seeing adults wearing braces would’ve been a rare sighting. These days, almost half of orthodontic patients are adults. Although, you probably wouldn’t notice too many! Invisalign (clear braces) are barely visible, which makes them a convenient choice for our patients who want to straighten their teeth in less time and without being noticeable.
Braces have come a long way since the days of metal mouths and head gear. Traditional metal brackets and wires are not an ideal option for most professional adults. Getting your lip caught above a wire, or having a piece of broccoli stuck around your front brackets during a meeting isn’t something busy adults want to deal with. Invisalign can be removed anytime and are much more comfortable. And, you won’t feel embarrassed wearing them!
Invisalign looks similar to clear, take-home whitening trays.
Having white, straight teeth looks great on everyone. We know the positive impact perfectly aligned teeth have on people, and what it does for good self-esteem. However, investing in orthodontic treatment isn’t just for nice looking teeth.
1.) Straight teeth are easier to keep clean.
2.) Crowded teeth collect more plaque and tartar build-up, which leads to gum disease.
3.) You can take them out to eat, and for social occasions.
4.) They help with alignment, which is beneficial for the way your teeth bite together and overall chewing.
5.) Straight teeth can greatly improve self-confidence.
If you’ve always wanted to straighten your teeth but hated the idea of wearing braces, or you’re one of the many parents who budgeted for their children’s orthodontic treatment first, Invisalign might be a great option for investing in yourself.
