Nightmares of junior high school filled with headgear, painful braces, and emotional taunting are all things of the past. If you are an adult who needs to straighten your teeth but you don’t want to have to sport a noticeable mouth full of metal, there are several options for you to choose from, including Invisalign.
Ideal for Adults
Because you likely don’t want to revisit the ghost of 7th grade and relive those nightmares of being called a “brace face,” you might want to consider a tooth straightening solution that is less visibly noticeable and that will give you equally as strong results. That’s where Invisalign comes into play. Designed for late teenagers and adults, Invisalign is a tooth straightening solution that works just as well as braces without all of the added metal.
How does it work?
During your first real visit and after your initial consultation, you and your dentist will work to create an Invisalign plan from start to finish. During this process, you will be fitted for a variety of different trays that will help to straighten your teeth around every 3 weeks. Each tray will gradually help to straighten your smile over the 3 week period, in which upon completion, you will then switch to the next tray that will help straighten your teeth a little bit more. At the end of the treatment process— which is typically around 12 months— you will have a straight smile that you can show off to all of your friends.
Not only does Invisalign give you a straighter smile without all of the metal involved with traditional braces, but it also is a lot more convenient than traditional braces. Because you don’t have to eat with your Invisalign trays in, you can still enjoy all of your favorite foods without having to worry about them getting lodged in between your brackets. Simply just either rinse your mouth out with water after every meal or brush your teeth so that you can rid your mouth of any bacteria that may have built up.
