Few of us are born with teeth that are perfectly aligned. Many seek orthodontic treatment as children, undergoing the embarrassing process of wearing metal braces at an age when braces are socially acceptable. For those of us who weren’t able to receive braces as children, or whose teeth have shifted as we’ve aged, there can seem to be no readily available orthodontic solution. What do adult patients seeking straighter teeth do to realign their smiles without making compromises? In this day and age, they choose Invisalign.
Invisalign: Braces for Adults
While Invisalign isn’t technically “braces,” it accomplishes the same straightening that standard orthodontic treatment does, with a few key differences in treatment. Invisalign improves the orthodontic experience in areas like:
- Patient Comfort – The brackets and wires of braces poke the inside of your mouth. You’re forced to alter your diet and forgo favorite foods. Everyday activities are made uncomfortable. And throughout these indignities, you hide your smile for fear of others judging you. Invisalign removes these various frustrations entirely. Smooth plastic aligner trays sit comfortably in your mouth, and are removable for easy eating and brushing.
- Subtlety of Treatment – Metal braces convey an air of adolescence that adults aren’t comfortable with. Invisalign trays are clear and fit teeth snugly. They are unnoticeable to all (unless they get up close and personal!). In this way, Invisalign permits you to straighten without sacrificing confidence.
- Lack of Demands on Patients – Invisalign treatment requires neither the monthly appointments nor the time commitment braces entail. While you will visit Sierra Dental multiple times throughout treatment, several trays will be dispensed at each check-in so that you can switch to new trays on your own. Moreover, Invisalign treatment targets the teeth visible when you smile to speed treatment along.
You deserve a straight smile that you can’t wait to show off.
