Choose Convenience and Comfort with Invisalign
For adults in need of orthodontic treatment, traditional braces can be an inconvenience. Besides their dietary restrictions, braces are typically seen as something worn during childhood and teen years. But even though braces seem like something that should be dealt with in childhood, adult orthodontic health is just as important and can be treated at any age. The good news is that there is a convenient alternative to braces that is much less noticeable and just as convenient: Invisalign.
Invisalign aligners are clear, plastic aligners worn as a “second skin” over the teeth. Sets of aligners are switched each week, carefully moving the teeth and correcting common orthodontic issues like crowding, gaps and more.
Invisalign often has to be worn longer than traditional braces, but it is still an option that many adults are choosing. Let’s learn why!
Easy to Take Care Of
One of the most convenient benefits of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. What this means is that you don’t have to change your eating habits when you get Invisalign. While it’s still important to brush and floss regularly, you can still enjoy hard, sticky and crunchy foods without worrying about yanking off a bracket or breaking a wire. The aligners are also easy to clean, and only need to be brushed with water.
Hard to See
Wearing a mouthful of metal braces can be embarrassing for adults, especially since traditional braces are often associated with younger children and teens. Invisalign aligners are completely clear. Aligners fit closely over teeth, and making it much less visible than traditional metal braces, and relieving any embarrassment that might come from wearing braces.
We all have busy lifestyles, and scheduling appointments to have wires tightened can take time out of your day. With Invisalign, you only need to come into Younis Orthodontics every 10 weeks for a quick appointment with Dr. Younis. Check-ups are also much shorter, since there are no wire adjustments to worry about.
Easy to Wear
Braces can come with discomfort. Wires and brackets can irritate your mouth and can lead to some initial pain and soreness. Invisalign aligners are custom-made, fit closely over your teeth and are smooth and easy on the gums.
