Are you an adult with healthy teeth and gums, aiming to straighten your smile? Invisalign may be ideal for you! In this post, our dentists at Guildford Smiles Dentistry explain how Invisalign can be a low-profile option to help you achieve a straighter smile.
Invisalign Treatment for Adults
Years ago, it was very unusual for adults to undergo orthodontic treatment. Many adults were of the misguided belief that only kids could have orthodontic treatment, and that braces just didn’t fit with their professional image.
Others simply felt too self-conscious about wearing braces. But in the 21st century, things have changed. Lower profile orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign have come on the market and more adults are deciding to improve the overall function and appearance of their smile.
Clear Aligners for Straighter Adult Smiles
If you would rather avoid bulky metal brackets and wires, Invisalign may be the ideal way to straighten your teeth. These clear orthodontic aligners can help to correct many simple and more complex misalignment issues — with barely anyone noticing!
Invisalign will gently move your teeth into their corrected positions with a series of custom-made aligners constructed from thin, clear plastic. They will be almost completely invisible while you wear them. This means you’ll be able to straighten your teeth without worrying about what others will think of your orthodontic treatment.
Removable Aligners for Adult Lifestyles
While you’ll need to wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day to achieve the best results, you will be able to remove your aligners when you’d prefer no one know that you’re straightening your smile.
Dietary restrictions are also a non-issue with removable aligners — simply take your aligners out and enjoy all the foods you love, without worrying about damaging your braces. Whether you’re attending an event, date night or important business meeting, with Invisalign clear aligners you won’t need to be concerned about what you can eat.
