Braces are the answer for many adults who have finally decided to address their crooked teeth or the misalignment that’s causing jaw pain and TMJ problems. Invisalign braces, especially, are the weapon of choice for adults, and there are plenty of reasons why adults love Invisalign braces.
Invisalign braces are discreet.
Adults have already gone through adolescence. Understandably, they don’t want to experience that awkward phase again. Braces don’t get more unnoticeable than Invisalign. The practically invisible aligners are super-thin, clear, and fit snugly on your teeth for maximum results.
When the aligners are in place, you won’t look any different than usual and no one will ever know you’re wearing Invisalign, while all the while your teeth will slowly and discreetly move themselves into alignment.
There are no food restrictions.
You know that chewy, crunchy, and gooey foods are off-limits for an orthodontic patient with brackets on their teeth. Invisalign-wearers, however, are not restricted in any way when it comes to diet. Invisalign must be removed for every meal and snack, so you can indulge just the way you like without damaging your aligners.
Things to keep in mind: You cannot eat with your aligners in place – they could easily be damaged. You can only drink water while wearing Invisalign. Any other beverages can stain the aligners and the discoloration will make them noticeable, which defeats the purpose of clear aligners.
Fewer visits to the dentist.
You will be instructed to change your Invisalign aligners about every two weeks, per your treatment plan that is sketched out from start to finish before that first aligner takes its place on your teeth. You’re sent home from your Woodinville Invisalign provider’s office with a few months’ worth of aligners and instructions for changing them out – that means less time in the orthodontist’s office and more time spent doing what you want to do while your teeth straighten themselves out.
Faster treatment time.
Conventional braces can take up to two years to complete, depending on the state of your misalignment. Invisalign takes about 12 months, on average. Straighter smile sooner and without any noticeable orthodontic work – that’s a major win.
You’re in charge.
The responsibility of wearing Invisalign is one that determined adults embrace. There are rules that must be followed so your Invisalign treatment is effective and the results permanent. It’s up to you to remove your aligners as needed for eating and cleaning, change them out when told, and wear them for the requisite 20 to 22 hours per day.
No lifestyle interruptions.
Braces for adults have been designed with your lifestyle in mind. Whether your job has you in front of clients, customers, or students all day, you can perform your work without anyone knowing about your braces. You wear Invisalign when socializing, dating, lounging around, playing sports, and everything else without anyone being the wiser. The only difference between pre-Invisalign and wearing Invisalign is that you’ll be the same you, just with progressively better teeth.
