Are you an adult with healthy teeth and gums, and are hoping to straighten your smile? Invisalign may be ideal for you. In this post, our dentists at Proactive Dental Studio in Surrey explain how Invisalign can be a great way to achieve a straighter smile.
Invisalign Treatment for Adults
It’s only relatively recently that adults have started to undergo orthodontic treatment. Traditionally, many adults have been misguided in believing that only kids could receive orthodontic treatment and that braces just didn’t fit with their professional image.
Others have simply felt too self-conscious to wear braces. These days, adults have options, thanks in part to lower-profile orthodontic treatment options such as Invisalign. More adults are choosing to improve their smile’s function and appearance.
Clear Aligners for Straighter Adult Smiles
Invisalign clear orthodontic aligners work to correct many misalignment issues from the most simple to more complex. Bonus: Hardly anyone will notice them on your teeth. They may be the ideal way to straighten your teeth without needing bulky metal wires or brackets.
The aligners gently and gradually move your teeth into their corrected positions. They are made from clear, thin plastic, making them almost completely invisible when worn. This means you’ll be able to work on straightening your teeth without worrying about what others will think of your orthodontic treatment.
Removable Aligners for Adult Lifestyles
Though you’ll need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day to achieve the best possible results, Invisalign aligners are removable for when you don’t want anyone to know that you are straightening your smile.
This also factors into your food choices — you won’t have to remember any dietary restrictions while you straighten your smile.
Simply take your aligners out to enjoy all of the foods you love without worrying about damaging your braces. Whether you’re attending an important event or out for lunch with friends, with Invisalign clear aligners you won’t need to worry about what to eat.
