One of the biggest misconceptions dental patients have about orthodontia is that it’s primarily reserved for kids and teens. But thanks to new, innovative products like Invisalign, adults can also quickly and effectively achieve beautiful smiles. Take a look at the following overview to learn more about orthodontic options for adults:
Experience Less Pain
Unlike metal braces, the Invisalign system gradually moves your teeth using a series of plastic aligners that are specially created to fit your unique smile. Many patients will feel slight discomfort when first switching to a new aligner; however, this minor discomfort is more manageable and less intense than the sensations that often accompany traditional metal braces following adjustments.
Feel Confident in Your Appearance
Many adults don’t want to wear traditional braces because they worry that the wires and brackets will detract from their appearance. Invisalign users never have to feel self-conscious about the look of their braces because the trays are nearly invisible. Furthermore, unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are not worn while a person eats, so he or she won’t feel insecure about embarrassing food particles stuck in the teeth.
Enjoy More Free Time
One of the biggest advantages to choosing Invisalign to correct your smile is the freedom it brings to your weekly schedule. Since trays are individually produced before your treatment begins, you don’t have to schedule a new appointment with your dentist each time you progress to the next stage. Instead, you will simply visit him or her every four to six weeks for a quick progress checkup.
