Why Adults Turn to Invisalign Braces

One of the first things people notice about you when making a first impression is your smile. If you’re concerned that you may have crooked or unaligned teeth that are sending the wrong impression about you, you have a range of options to fix your smile including cosmetic dentistry, braces, or more popular due to the comfort and hidden appearance, Invisalign.

In most cases, Invisalign are a cost-effective and manageable solution to perfecting your smile and here are some of the benefits associated with an Invisalign smile.

With Invisalign, You Can Proudly Look Your Age

One of the top reasons that many adults avoid traditional metal or ceramic braces is because they don’t want to look like a teenager from the 80s. It is estimated that almost 4.5 million Americans wear braces, the majority of which range from the ages of 6 to 18 years old.

While it’s flattering when our waiter or waitress asks for an ID at dinner, you might feel more conscious about your age if it’s questioned due to visible hardware in your mouth. By straightening your teeth with invisible aligners, no one will know that you’re working on your smile except for you and your dentist.

 

Invisalign Are More Comfortable Than Braces

It’s not a surprise that the process of straightening your teeth can come with some minor discomfort, as your teeth are physically being moved and aligned over a period of time. One of the benefits of choosing an Invisalign over traditional braces is that they are often times reported as being more comfortable than traditional metal or ceramic braces.

Each invisible aligner is completely removable, unlike traditional braces which are affixed directly onto your teeth. The smooth plastic aligners also are less-likely to irritate your gums, lips, and cheeks.

Invisalign are Convenient

Unlike traditional metal or ceramic braces that need to be manually moved and adjusted every few weeks, your dentist will work with you to create a systematic series of custom aligners that will gradually move and straighten your teeth. You can minimize the time needed to take a long lunch break or rearrange your schedule to have your braces adjusted.

The Invisalign clear aligners are removable, you’re also able to remove them when needed. This means that you can take them off during meals, and maintain your normal oral hygiene routine without having to invest in specialty oral care products.
