There are two prominent reasons why adults avoid getting braces. One is because they simply feel as if they have outgrown the process. These individuals remember their school days, including the unpleasant taunting that braces wearers received. However, there is never a wrong time to achieve better oral health. If you have crooked or crowded teeth, don’t hesitate to consult with our office to find out if Invisalign is a suitable treatment for your situation. The other reason is that they are afraid of how metal, or even ceramic braces, will change their appearance. Luckily, advancements and breakthroughs in the dental world have given us more options than ever before for straightening teeth.
Transparent trays, which are as close to clear as possible, become constructed to fit the patient’s mouth, and their teeth alone. They are inconspicuous and virtually undetectable. People can talk, laugh, and do other essential social activities, without feeling self-conscious, and while no one is the wiser about the person wearing Invisalign. Teeth are gently shifted into the correct position for an aligned bite, and the entire process is more discreet than that of metal braces. Just remove the liner to eat and pop it right back in place after cleansing your mouth thoroughly. The trays are incredibly convenient and are becoming the realigning method of choice for dentists and patients alike around our great nation.
One of the most unpleasant side-effects of traditional braces is the chaffing of lips and cheeks. Invisalign liners are comfortable to wear and do not leave areas irritated. Each one offers a subtle change to tooth position until teeth achieve the correct resting place. They are also BPA-free, stain-resistant, and easy to keep clean with minimal effort. The length of treatment is determined by the severity of the patient’s issues, but fewer office visits and quicker results than conventional braces are typical.
