Invisalign for Adults
For obvious reasons, your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. If you want to know how your smile looks but don't want to wear conventional metal braces, you may want to look into Invisalign, one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry services we offer here at Dynamic Dental Care.
What is Invisalign?
Think of them as invisible braces that fit over your teeth in an inconspicuous manner. Invisalign aligners are removable for a few hours a day while you're eating or brushing your teeth.
Am I Too Old for Invisalign?
But are you too old to get Invisalign as an adult? The good news is that Invisalign aligners are clear and almost invisible to the untrained eye. You can never really put a price on having straight teeth and the impact they can have on your smile - something that Invisalign can help with. Adult patients can get the same treatment as younger patients. The only difference is that treatment timelines are slightly longer for adult patients because the teeth are much harder to move. For most adults, wearing regular braces to straighten their teeth may not be a viable solution especially if they feel conscious in social situations. This is where Invisalign comes in and can improve your smile without making it too obvious to the outsider that you're wearing braces.
Benefits of Invisalign
And the best part is that Invisalign gives you the same results as traditional braces but in a far less noticeable manner. Moreover, clear braces are extremely versatile because you can remove them when you need to for eating, drinking, and maintaining hygiene. Even better is the fact that Invisalign doesn't hurt at all. You can easily take it out and put it back on, giving you the same benefits as braces but without any of the dreaded disadvantages. If all of this sounds great to you, then Invisalign as an adult is a powerful solution.
What You Should Know About Invisalign as an Adult
As discussed previously, you can get braces as an adult and reap the benefits. The only difference is that it takes longer for the teeth to align in their correct positions at an older age. This is because when you're young and your teeth are still emerging, it's easier to move them to their desired location. Permanent teeth, on the other hand, are more fixed in their places and harder to move. When you opt for Invisalign as an adult, you can expect the entire process to be smooth. Our specialists, Dr. Huish, will require a mold of your teeth, which is then used to make your first set of aligners. Over time, you will need to have a new set of aligners made once the previous set has done its job of adjusting your teeth. This process will continue until you are satisfied with how your teeth look.
