Braces are no longer the clunky metal apparatus that is just for teenagers. Many adults turn to braces to improve their appearance. Some people didn’t get the orthodontic treatment they needed when they were younger, but it’s not too late.
The biggest hurdle for adults who are considering getting braces is the embarrassment of wearing metal braces or even ceramic braces in public. Braces are obvious during professional and social interactions.
To avoid this kind of embarrassment, there is another solution. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that will straighten your teeth and fix other orthodontic problems. Best of all, Invisalign is both highly effective and also virtually invisible.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Most people need to wear braces for two years. Braces are difficult to clean and often feel uncomfortable. Plus, many people just don’t love the way they look in metal braces — especially if the wearer is an adult who needs a professional look! Fortunately, none of these drawbacks apply with Invisalign. It is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic aligners to gently move your teeth into the correct position.
With Invisalign, you get a new aligner every two weeks until the treatment is complete. The amount of time depends on the type of orthodontic treatment you need. The aligners are easy to clean, feel smooth inside your mouth and no one will know you are wearing braces unless you tell them.
Other benefits of Invisalign treatment are:
- The aligners are removable: You can take them out for an hour or two if you want to attend an event and not worry about removing your braces before you eat.
- No dietary restrictions: Since they are removable, you don’t need to change your diet as with other braces. You can eat nuts, raw carrots, apples and other hard things that may break other types of braces.
- Easier to maintain good oral hygiene: It is very difficult to keep your teeth clean with ordinary braces. You need extra tools and a lot of time or your teeth could start to decay under the braces. Removable Invisalign allows you to maintain your oral care just as you always do.
