For plenty of patients, Invisalign is an ideal orthodontic treatment that straightens their smile, aligns their bite, and gives them an attractive and functionally sound set of teeth. If you want straight teeth, Invisalign is a great way to get an aligned smile. Now it’s time to consult with your dentist to find out if you actually are an ideal candidate to wear Invisalign.
Invisalign has forever changed how orthodontics will be viewed. No longer are people destined to wear traditional metal braces when they want straight teeth. Many teens can get an aligned smile without their peers knowing, and even more adults can enjoy the benefit of finally having a straight smile without the embarrassment of “metal mouth” beyond the teen years.
Invisalign offers a way for adults to achieve the straight teeth they want without letting all their colleagues and friends know that they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign does not interrupt an adult’s personal life. Being able to remove Invisalign for meals or special occasions eliminates any awkward moments of, “You have lettuce stuck in your brackets.”
Your professional life will not be affected by Invisalign, other than to improve your career. Having straight teeth will encourage you to speak up more and be more confident and secure in your appearance without worrying that others are staring at your crooked teeth. Speeches, presentations, meetings, work dinners – it’s all easy and possible with Invisalign.
According to the makers of Invisalign, teens have proven to be more reliable than adults when it comes to wearing their invisible aligners 20 to 22 hours a day as required.
Of the teens who wear traditional metal braces, 92 percent feel isolated from their peers, per other Invisalign research.
Invisalign Teen was developed to include “wear indicators.” These small blue dots can be found on each aligner and fade over time when the aligner is worn correctly.
Teens who wear Invisalign instead of traditional metal braces take less of a hit to their self-esteem because of their orthodontic treatment.
In the majority of cases, Invisalign is able to correct every malocclusion and misalignment that traditional metal braces is able to correct, including:
Even if you have been told in the past that orthodontia cannot help your oral health complaints, it’s worth your time to see a preferred Invisalign provider like Dr. Cirka at Philadelphia Dentistry to find out what really is and isn’t an option.
Improving the alignment of your teeth not only is aesthetically pleasing, a straight smile is good for your oral health and overall health and well-being. When your teeth are not crooked, they chew food better which aids in digestion. There are also less opportunities for food and bacteria and plaque to get stuck between teeth, minimizing opportunities for cavities to develop.
Never eliminate yourself from a cosmetic dentistry procedure based on your age. It is up to you and your dentist together to decide what is feasible and what is best for your oral health. Invisalign could absolutely be a possibility for your current lifestyle and age.
When you have gone years wishing for a straight smile, but you feel like you’re past the point where it’s “OK” to wear metal braces, Invisalign makes the dream come true. You can have straight teeth and you can get them without an obvious fix. Perhaps you even wore metal braces in younger years and didn’t keep up with wearing your retainers afterward, and your teeth shifted back out of position. It’s never too late to repair what’s out of alignment.
