Clear The Way
When Invisalign clear aligners were first developed, adults were considered the primary patients. This innovative orthodontic option was invented, in part, because many adults who could benefit from straighter smiles refused to wear braces.
We’ve talked to many patients in our own office who have expressed this concern. When you have a job that calls for dealing with people face-to-face, you don’t want braces to become a distraction during a sales pitch or a contract negotiation.
Also, if you just starting your career, braces could make you look younger than you are. People have told us that they were worried that their professional colleagues wouldn’t take them as seriously is they wore braces.
The aligners were designed to be practically invisible while they are being worn. Each set of aligners is custom-designed for one patient. This keeps your teeth moving where you want them to go without calling attention to your treatment.
When used as directed, you could have your new smile in as little as 12 months.
Give Your Smile A Push
Braces are still used in orthodontic care because they work. The brackets and wires work together to apply pressure to teeth to change their positions where they will look nicest.
Invisalign gives you a different way to apply that pressure. The aligners gently push your teeth, so they move a little more every few weeks. That’s when you will change your aligners to keep your teeth going in the right direction.
Unlike braces, your aligners can be taken out for up to two hours per day. This means you can eat what you would throughout your treatment.
Many patients who experienced relapse, which is when their teeth moved back after they completed their treatment with braces, prefer to use Invisalign. They know how irritating brackets and wires can feel on the soft tissue of their mouths. The clear aligners are made with smooth plastic, which makes them more comfortable, too.
