Why Invisalign Is Great For Adults
As an adult, the last thing you should have to worry about is donning traditional metal braces to straighten wayward teeth. Nowadays, there is no reason for adults, teens, tweens or anyone else to wear unsightly metal braces. Dental technology has advanced to the point that Invisalign clear aligners straighten teeth in a covert and quick manner. Invisalign is particularly helpful for adults concerned about their smile for personal and/or professional reasons.
Invisalign Works Its Magic Without Sabotaging Your Smile
Invisalign's primary advantage over regular braces is its aesthetic appeal. You can open wide and onlookers won't notice your Invisalign aligner1. This teeth-straightening solution is translucent so it blends in with the teeth to create a uniform looking smile. The same cannot be said of regular braces that visually contrast with the teeth, making the patient feel self-conscious.
As an adult, you are likely concerned about your appearance for a variety of reasons. For one, you need to look your best for work. If you show up to work with braces lining your teeth, you will feel self-conscious and hesitate to smile or talk in front of others. The look of your teeth and smile also matters for success with potential flames. You should not have to bear the burden of ugly braces as though you are a teenager. Opt for Invisalign clear aligners and none of your coworkers will have any idea you are gradually straightening your teeth with a completely clear set of aligners.
A Sound Plan for Straightening Those Crooked Teeth
Now that you have reached adulthood, it is time to develop a plan to finally straighten those crooked teeth. Opt for Invisalign and the dentist will send you home with the aligners you need well in advance of their actual use. Your sole responsibility is changing the Invisalign tray in order to progress to the next tray and so on. Though this takes a bit of work, it is much more convenient to switch out a tray once each week than visit with the dentist over and over again to have braces' wires adjusted.
Take the Invisalign route and you won't have to spend nearly as much time in the dentist's office. Simply stop in for a quick check-in every couple months or so to make sure the aligners are a proper fit and progress is being made. This is the intelligent plan you need to bring out the best in your smile. The best part is you don't have to do anything but occasionally clean and replace the Invisalign trays.
Invisalign is Quick, Convenient and Flexible
Ask anyone who has tried braces about the experience and you are nearly guaranteed to be inundated with complaints about their maintenance, adjustments, lack of flexibility and other flaws. Compare this response to that of Invisalign users and you will notice quite the difference. Invisalign's translucent aligners are favorable for reasons beyond their visual appeal. This teeth-straightening solution is incredibly convenient and flexible. Unlike braces, there is no need to worry about eating certain foods when wearing Invisalign aligners. Invisalign aligners are remarkably comfortable. Alternatively, conventional braces have the potential to cause discomfort and require ongoing wire/bracket adjustments. Opt for Invisalign and you won't have to visit with the dentist over and over again for refittings as required with conventional braces.
Maintain Your Oral Hygiene Routine
Invisalign aligners straighten your teeth without interfering with your regular flossing and brushing routine. Go ahead and continue to brush and floss as you regularly would. There is no need to alter your routine in any way as Invisalign aligners can be removed whenever desired. Just be sure to remember to put the aligner back in your mouth after you floss and brush. Do your part to keep your teeth and gums clean, let Invisalign work its magic and it won't be long until you have the smile of your dreams.
Straighten Your Teeth in a Year's Time
Adults only have so much time. You need straight and white teeth as soon as possible. Do not wait upwards of two years for braces to straighten your crooked teeth when Invisalign can get the job done in a year's time. The vast majority of patient tooth alignments performed with Invisalign are complete between a year and 18 months. The dentist will provide you with an anticipated time frame for completion when you visit for an initial consultation. Choose Invisalign, let the aligners work their magic and those crooked teeth will gradually shift into the proper positions.
Invisalign Requires Minimal Work
As a patient, you should not be tasked with excessive cleaning, adjustments, repairs and other work just to straighten your teeth. Invisalign does almost all of the work on your behalf. All you have to do is brush and clean the Invisalign trays when flossing and brushing your teeth. You can use these trays for upwards of two weeks. If the trays become discolored, soak them for an extended period of time before putting them back in your mouth. This way, you can spend your valuable free time with your family, your furry friends and simply enjoying life rather than messing around with braces. You will not find an easier, quicker or more effective means of straightening crooked teeth than Invisalign.
Invisalign Does More Than Straighten Crooked Teeth
Invisalign is revered throughout the dental industry for its ability to straighten crooked teeth. However, this advancement in dental technology does plenty more than beautify wayward teeth. If you have bite issues, crowding, crookedness or gapped teeth, Invisalign braces just might eliminate the problem. Meet with our dentist for a comprehensive review of your mouth to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign or traditional braces.
