Did you know that our teeth continue to shift throughout our lives? Whether it’s due to late-life tooth movement or treatment that simply never got done during childhood, there are plenty of adults in the United States who wish their smiles could be a bit straighter. Unfortunately, while no one thinks twice about seeing a child or teenager in braces, some adults feel self-conscious about the idea of wearing conspicuous metal braces around their friends, family, and coworkers. This can be a particular issue for adults who rely on their appearance for their jobs, such as people who meet frequently with clients or who spend time in front of the camera.
Invisalign To The Rescue
This is where Invisalign steps in to save the day. Invisalign works in much the same way that braces do – by placing controlled pressure on certain teeth to guide them into position. However, unlike braces, Invisalign’s aligners are removable and clear. This provides two key advantages over traditional metal braces.
Advantage #1 – Adults with Invisalign can remove their aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
You don’t have to worry about that apple snapping off a bracket or that popcorn kernel causing an issue. Plus, you can avoid the hassle of dealing with special floss threaders to clean your teeth. Just take off your Invisalign aligner to enjoy your meal or brush your teeth, and simply pop it back on again when you’re finished. It’s that easy!
Advantage #2 – Adults with Invisalign can enjoy the benefits of straightening their teeth without anyone noticing!
Because Invisalign’s aligners are made from a clear plastic molded to fit your teeth, no one will be able to tell you are wearing them unless they are looking directly at your teeth from a very close distance.
