Invisalign - The Ideal Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

Invisalign - The Ideal Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

More and more adults are considering correcting orthodontic issues left untreated in their youth. Thanks to Invisalign®, our adult patients can straighten their teeth and correct bite issues discreetly, without the need for bulky brackets and wires. 

The Discreet Way To Straighten Adult Smiles

It used to be unusual for adults to undergo orthodontic treatment. Many adults clung to the misguided notion that braces were only for teens and children. Some adults felt too self-conscious to straighten their teeth with traditional metal braces, feeling that braces just weren't compatible with their professional image. But now, thanks in part to discreet orthodontic treatments like Invisalign, more and more adults are choosing to correct orthodontic issues, and improve the appearance and function of their smile.

How Invisalign For Adults Works

Invisalign can be the ideal orthodontic treatment for adults looking to straighten their teeth without the need for braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear orthodontic aligners to correct misalignment issues with hardly anyone noticing! Invisalign aligners are created from thin clear plastic, making them almost completely invisible when worn. Clear aligners allow adults to straighten their teeth without worrying what others will think. Each custom made aligner gently guides teeth into the desired positions without the need for adjustment appointments, simply switch to the next set of aligners in your series every two weeks, (or as prescribed by your dentist). 

Removable Aligners

Invisalign aligners are also removable. Removable aligners mean that there's are no dietary restrictions while straightening your smile, just remove the aligners and enjoy all of the foods you love without worrying about damaging your braces. It doesn't matter whether you're at an important business lunch or at the movies for date night, with Invisalign orthodontic treatment you won't need to worry about what you'll be able to eat. Simply remove your aligners when it's time to eat and store them in their case. When you're finished just step away to brush and floss your teeth, rinse the aligners, and pop them back on to your teeth. It's that easy!
