Invisalign has become extremely popular because it offers numerous benefits and advantages over other teeth straightening methods. And it’s not just for kids anymore! Invisalign for adults is a thing now.
Let’s take a closer look at the Invisalign system so that you know what is involved every step of the way: from your initial consultation to your last day of treatment. Then, if you feel that Invisalign may be right for you, you can schedule a meeting with your dentist or orthodontist to go over all necessary steps and have any remaining questions answered to your satisfaction.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a method of straightening teeth that adults are increasingly utilizing. This innovative system involves the patient wearing a set of clear plastic aligners to straighten their teeth. These aligners can be removed at any time for eating or brushing the teeth.
It is recommended that you wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours each day. This ensures that your teeth are shifting into their expected positions. So if you need to take your aligners out to eat or clean your teeth, always remember to properly replace them so that your treatment is not delayed.
What are the benefits of Invisalign for adults?
- Effective method of straightening teeth
- Virtually undetectable to others
- Extremely convenient and comfortable
Comfort and Convenience
When people think of braces, they typically think of bulky and uncomfortable metal braces. Invisalign is nothing like that. This system was designed to be extremely comfortable and convenient. There are no rough edges to the plastic used in the aligners. So you should expect no irritation to your mouth or gums.
Invisalign is incredibly convenient because the aligners can be removed at any time you like, unlike traditional metal braces that are fixed within the mouth. Need to eat or brush your teeth? No problem. Simply remove your aligners and replace them when you are done.
Invisalign is virtually undetectable to others due to the clear plastic used with the system. Of course, people will know if you choose to tell them.
Can anyone get Invisalign?
It doesn’t really matter what your age is. Assuming your adult teeth are completely grown, this treatment should be an option for you. It can help you straighten your teeth without undergoing the common embarrassment that people experience when wearing traditional braces.
