Adult Orthodontic Treatment Option: Clear Braces from Invisalign

Smiling woman

If you’re ready to take the first step towards obtaining a better-looking smile, consider clear braces for your orthodontic treatment. If you have mild crowding, spacing, or other minor dental abnormalities, you might be a good candidate for Invisalign:

  • Smile with Confidence 
    Many adults put off their orthodontic treatment, because they want a more subtle treatment than traditional braces offer. Plus, metal brackets and wires can interfere with a person’s ability to smile and communicate clearly. Invisalign allows you to smile with confidence. With clear braces, no one will even know you’re undergoing an orthodontic treatment.
  • Maintain Your Quality of Life
    Most people have to give up some measure of their quality of life when they undergo orthodontic treatment. However, with clear braces, you don’t have to give up anything. You can remove the Invisalign trays when you need to, allowing you to continue eating what you want and maintaining your oral hygiene routine.
  • Preserve Optimal Dental Health 
    Since you can remove your Invisalign trays, you can effectively clean your teeth and gums during your orthodontic treatment. Traditional braces make cleaning the teeth and flossing the gums extremely difficult. Many patients suffer gum disease and tooth decay throughout their traditional orthodontic treatment due to inadequate oral hygiene routines, adding on to the cost of dental care. With clear braces, you simply have to remove the trays to brush and floss normally. When you are finished cleaning your teeth, you just snap them back into place!

A Patient's Guide to Invisalign

Beauty concept

Orthodontic treatment can help correct a number of problems, including crowded or crooked teeth. Clear aligners, such as those used in the Invisalign system, are a form of orthodontic treatment that can bring the teeth into proper alignment. Take a closer look at the Invisalign treatment system to learn more:                                                                            

  • What Is Invisalign?
    The Invisalign system is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear aligners to gradually move the teeth into proper alignment. In order to begin treatment with Invisalign, a patient’s teeth must be carefully evaluated. A treatment plan is then established, and the trays are custom-made to move the teeth into precise positions over the course of treatment.
  • What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
    Patients who undergo treatment with Invisalign experience several benefits. First, having teeth that are in proper alignment can boost a person’s confidence and oral health, as it is easier to clean between straight teeth. In addition, Invisalign’s clear aligners are nearly invisible, making them extremely difficult to detect. The aligners are removable, which makes it easier to maintain oral hygiene during treatment. Patients also find Invisalign to be more comfortable than traditional braces, as there are no metal wires involved that may poke the gums and cheeks.
  • Where Should I Go for Invisalign?
    For successful treatment with Invisalign, it is essential to have the trays fitted and designed by an expert in tooth alignment. While a dentist may be able to provide Invisalign trays, an orthodontist’s extensive knowledge and experience in aligning teeth ensures optimal orthodontic treatment. An orthodontist can create a treatment plan that will not only straighten the teeth, but also correctly align the top and bottom rows of teeth with each other. This will provide patients with a smile that not only looks great, but is also comfortable too.
