For various reasons, you did not have your teeth straightened as a teen. As an adult, you may not want to spend several years of your life wearing braces. That’s understandable, but now you can have the smile you always wanted without brackets and wires. You can invest in your smile with Invisalign.
With Invisalign treatment, you will wear a series of clear, custom aligners that fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth. The aligners place just the right amount of pressure on your teeth to gently nudge them into their proper position. There are many reasons for adults to choose Invisalign.
Advancements in Technology
When Invisalign was first introduced, orthodontists were only able to offer the option to their patients who needed simple realignment. That has changed. With improvements in Invisalign technology, the orthodontic aligners can be used to turn teeth, realign the bite, close gaps and straighten teeth. Invisalign treatment is available to more people than ever before.
Teeth Are Easier to Care For
Since the invisible aligners are removable, your teeth are easy to care for. You continue to brush and floss as you always have. You don’t need to be concerned with brackets and wires that can trap tartar or damage tooth enamel.
Protects Your Future Health
Straightening your teeth now can reduce your risk of future health problems. When your teeth are correctly aligned, your risk of cavities is reduced. Your gums will fit smoothly around your teeth protecting you from gum disease. Periodontal disease is shown to increase your risk of heart disease, stroke and inflammatory disorders.
Eat Your Favorite Foods
If you had worn braces earlier in your life, you would have needed to avoid sticky, chewy and hard foods that could have damaged your braces. Since Invisalign is removed for snacks and meals, you can still indulge in the foods you enjoy. There is no need to feel deprived.
Appointments Are Pain-Free
Orthodontists at clinics like Royal Oak Dental confirm that Invisalign treatment and follow up appointments are gentle and pain-free. There are no wires to tighten, no brackets to repair. You will need fewer appointments than a teen who needs to have their braces painfully adjusted.
It is never too late in your life to transform your smile. As an adult, you choose your own path. Invisalign could be your path to the confident, healthy smile you always wanted. Adults who want a discreet, comfortable, simplified route to a confident smile, choose Invisalign.
