Is Invisalign® for You?
Most people associate dental braces as being worn by young children and teenagers. However, braces are now more popular than ever among adults who want to correct the look of their teeth, and improve their smile! Orthodontic treatments offer something for everyone.
Adults seek orthodontic treatment for various reasons, from crooked teeth to unwanted spaces in between teeth. Aside from cosmetic issues, crooked or uneven teeth can also make everyday activities, like eating or talking comfortably, quite difficult for many adults.
Dental braces have come a long way over the years. In the past, uncomfortable metal braces were the only option for patients who needed to correct crooked or imperfect teeth. However, Invisalign® braces have become increasingly popular over the years- especially among adults, who do not want to wear embarrassing, or uncomfortable, metal braces.
Invisalign are invisible dental aligners, which can discreetly correct your crooked teeth, and give you a more beautiful smile! Unlike traditional dental braces, Invisalign braces are removable. This means you have the flexibility to drink and eat what you like, while still treating dental issues by simply removing the aligners! Just by brushing and flossing regularly, you can maintain good oral hygiene.
Invisalign is also preferred by many patients since it will not cause any irritation to your mouth. Perhaps best of all, you will spend much less time in a dental chair, although your dentist will monitor your progress closely as you wear Invisalign.
So, is Invisalign for you? Most patients are considered good candidates for Invisalign, since it offers all the same benefits of traditional dental braces without the added irritation or discomfort! Both younger and older patients alike can benefit from the treatment, especially if they wish to correct the appearance of crooked, overcrowded, or spaced teeth. However, your dentist will make the final determination of whether or not Invisalign is right for you.
