The Benefits of Invisalign for Adults

We explore the benefits of Invisalign for adults and how it allows you to straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious.

As we age, our teeth start to become more crooked and misaligned due to several factors such as genetics, injury or just simple wear and tear. For most adults, the thought of having braces to straighten their teeth can often be very intimidating. However with Invisalign, it offers a discreet and effect alternative to traditional braces. In this article we’ll explore the benefits of invisible braces for adults.

Discreet Appearance

One of the greatest benefits of Invisible braces for adults is the invisible appearance it gives when compared to traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners that are custom made with the latest technology to fit over your teeth. This allows you to straighten your teeth without feeling self conscious or worrying about your appearance.

Comfortable and Convenient

The Invisalign aligners are made from a smooth, comfortable material that will not irritate your cheeks or gums. Additionally, unlike normal traditional braces that require frequent visits to the dentist with tightening appointments, you can change your Invisalign aligners weekly or every 2 weeks depending on your treatment plan at home. This makes the process of straightening your teeth more convenient without having to make regular visits to your local dental practice.

Easy to Clean

Cleaning Invisalign is extremely easy to do. When eating or drinking other than water, you can easily remove them, and clean them either with cleaning crystals or tablets or simply wash them out with cold water. This prevents staining and decay, which is often a concern with wearing traditional braces.

Effective Results

Although Invisalign gives a discreet appearance when wearing the aligners, the actual results are just as effective as traditional braces when it comes to straightening teeth. In fact sometimes depending on the patient and treatment plan, Invisalign can often produce faster results than traditional braces especially if a case is less severe. Speak to your local dentist or book an Invisalign consultation to see how we can help straighten your teeth within a short period of time.

Oral Health Improvement

Crooked or misaligned teeth can lead to a variety of oral health issues. Health issues include tooth decay, gum disease, and jaw problems. By straightening your teeth with Invisalign, it can drastically improve your oral health and prevent these issues from developing or worsening as time goes on.

No Food Restrictions

Unlike traditional braces you often have a long list of foods to avoid, such as popcorn, nuts or candy as they can get stuck within the wires and brackets. However with Invisalign there are no food restrictions although it is still a good idea to not consume such foods for overall health and oral health! But with Invisalign you simply remove the aligners before eating, which then allows you to enjoy foods without worrying about damaging the clear aligners.

Seamlessly Fits into Daily Life

Clear aligners like Invisalign are designed to fit seamlessly into your daily life. Easy to take out for eating, brushing, flossing so you can continue with your normal routine without having to make huge changes. This is why Invisalign in recent years has become such a popular choice for adults who do not want to go with traditional orthodontic treatment which can interfere with their work or social life.

Customized Treatment Plan

Each patient has a unique set of teeth and the great beneift of a Invisalign treatment plan is that it can address your specific needs. Your dentist will take digital impressions of your teeth to help create a digital 3D model of your smile. This model is used to create a custom set of aligners that are designed to move your teeth into the final desired position.

Boosts your Confidence

Crooked teeth can have a negative impact on your self-esteem that can make people feel very self-conscious and reluctant to smile. Invisalign can help to boost your confidence and give you the smile you’ve always wanted. With straighter teeth, you’ll feel more confident about smiling and laughing and your confidence will grow especially when your treatment has finished.
