Adults who want straighter teeth don’t have to wear metal braces to get their dream smile. Adult orthodontics such as clear braces can now deliver exceptional results without the hassle and cost of traditional braces.
Invisalign® clear aligners are BPA-free plastic trays that fit over your teeth to align your smile gradually. Invisalign has transformed millions of smiles across the world, and we are proud to offer these life-enhancing adult braces to our community in Madison, AL.
Here are 4 reasons why we (and our patients!) choose to use Invisalign for adult orthodontics.
#1 Invisalign Can Improve Your Oral Health and Wellbeing
Adult orthodontics can help improve your bite and correct minor misalignments. According to the American Dental Association, crooked teeth can cause many different oral health issues. They are also more difficult to clean, and dental misalignment can even inhibit proper jaw development.
A straight smile with Invisalign improves the health of your teeth and gums by reducing the risk of cavities, gum disease, and wear or breakage. When you have a smile you’re proud of, your confidence soars, and you feel like you can finally be your most authentic self. With Invisalign, not only will your teeth look good, but they’ll feel good too! An Invisalign smile will feel like a new and improved person ready to face the world.
#2 Invisalign Discreetly Corrects Alignment Issues
Misaligned and crowded teeth can cause pain in the mouth and even embarrassment. Fortunately, Invisalign can correct several bite and alignment issues such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Overlapped teeth
- Gapped teeth
With Invisalign, you can discreetly achieve healthier, more beautiful teeth without metal brackets and wires disrupting your smile line.
#3 Invisalign Is Customized to Meet Your Needs
Custom-designed to fit your teeth, Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear and don’t irritate your gums like metal braces often do. Before you receive your aligners from your dentist, we take a 3-D scan of your mouth and map out a treatment plan based on your oral health needs, smile goals, and lifestyle.
We then send the 3-D scans and a smile model to the Invisalign lab, where your trays are fabricated. After a few weeks, your aligners are delivered back to our Madison, AL dental office, where you can pick them and begin your treatment.
#4 The Invisalign Process Is Quick and Simple
The Invisalign system consists of several sets of trays that patients wear in a series. The trays are changed out every two weeks and replaced with a tighter set designed to align your teeth gradually. These transparent adult braces can also be easily removed to eat, drink, and brush and floss your teeth.
For optimal results, we recommend that patients wear their aligner trays 20-22 hours each day. The length of treatment depends on your unique bite and alignment issues. Typically, Invisalign clear braces can straighten teeth much faster than traditional braces—sometimes, in less than a year!
