Invisalign for Adults

It is surprising how many people have still not heard of Invisalign. Although it has become increasingly popular in recent years, some patients still believe that traditional metal braces are their only option for straightening teeth. Even though conventional braces are as effective as ever, and have actually evolved to become less prominent and more comfortable, Invisalign treatment is preferred by many due to its numerous benefits.

Invisalign Benefits

  • More comfortable than other treatment options
  • Can be easily removed and replaced to clean teeth
  • No food restrictions, as with traditional braces
  • Virtually invisible

Not Just For Teenagers

Teenagers are not the only ones who like to have their teeth straightened in a less obtrusive way. Many adults also like to receive their treatment without being so obvious about it. Invisalign offers adults an innovative system for straightening their teeth in a very convenient and comfortable way.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a teeth straightening system that employs proprietary plastic aligners that are completely transparent. Over the course of your treatment plan, your aligners will be straightening your teeth. You will need to have them periodically switched out for a new set about every two weeks.

Since you can remove your aligners whenever you like, you don’t feel as chained down as you might with traditional metal braces. And if you need to eat, you don’t have to worry about anything sticking to your aligners. Simply pop them out and replace them when you are done.

What does Invisalign treatment help with?

When Invisalign was first developed, the aligners were basically used for the correction of mild crowding or basic spacing issues. As Invisalign’s popularity grew, the aligners evolved, making them effective in treating the following:

  • Teeth gaps
  • Deep overbite
  • Open bite
  • Crowding

Is Invisalign more comfortable than metal braces?

Most patients find Invisalign to be significantly more comfortable than other treatment options. This is largely due to the fact that your aligners will be individually created just for you. So you will get a nice, comfortable fit. And the edges of the aligners are not sharp, so they will not irritate your mouth or gums.

With traditional wire braces, there are many restrictions. For example, you cannot eat crunchy or sticky foods or snacks.

You also don’t have to worry about having Invisalign tightened. Nothing painful is involved. You simply pick up the next aligners in your set and leave. When you are a busy adult, time matters. We realize that you have other things to do.

When will I start to notice results?

Although everyone is different, patients typically begin to see some results at around the three-month mark. This assumes that you are wearing your aligners for the recommended 22 hours daily. If you are not in compliance with your treatment plan, your results may take longer to achieve.
