Invisalign® for Adults
What is Invisalign?
At its core, Invisalign is an innovative dental treatment option that is designed to act as a viable alternative to more traditional solutions like metal braces.
With metal braces, a series of small brackets are attached to a patient’s teeth that are then connected to one another with a wire. The strength of that wire is periodically adjusted, which is what moves the teeth into the ideal position.
With Invisalign, you’re talking about a series of clear plastic trays that are constructed to the specific measurements of your mouth thanks to 3D imaging and scanning. Every few weeks, you change one set of trays for another and this is what moves your teeth into their desired position over time.
The Benefits of Invisalign
One of the major reasons why Invisalign has become so popular over the years is because it brings with it a host of unique benefits that traditional braces simply cannot compete with.
No Need For Brackets
For starters, it’s an option that does NOT require any unsightly brackets or braces that are “permanently” affixed to your mouth. In fact, they’re so discreet that most people probably won’t even realize you’re wearing them at all.
Attend Your Event In Style
Invisalign is very easy to remove for events – like if you’re having family photos taken or attending an important work conference. All you need to do is take them out of your mouth, go through your event as you normally would, and put them back in when you’re done.
Your Comfort Comes First
Invisalign aligners are far more comfortable than traditional braces because they essentially become a set of “second skin” for your teeth, makes it easy to see why it’s the ideal choice of so many patients around the world.
Why Should I Get Invisalign as an Adult?
A lot of people assume that corrective dental measures are something you need to look into while you’re still young. However, your Invisalign treatment will be customized to your specific needs and is more than capable of correcting issues that can develop at any age. And the sooner you get started, the sooner you will have an updated, straightened smile!
Here are some common reasons…
- Crowded teeth, which can cause dental problems such as tooth decay and plaque build-up
- Jaw pain that can result from irregular bite or alignment
- Cosmetic reasons; a desire for a beautiful smile
Invisalign aligners are great for correcting underbites, overbites, crowded teeth, spacing issues and so much more. The aligners typically work out to about the same cost as traditional braces in most cases. With that to consider, there really isn’t a reason NOT to talk to the team at Behl Orthodontics about exploring Invisalign as an option.
Is Invisalign Comfortable?
In the vast majority of all situations, patients do not find Invisalign uncomfortable. This is because each treatment is finely tuned to the patient in question. A scan is taken of YOUR teeth and the aligners are designed to meet the specifics of that scan – meaning that they’re absolutely as comfortable as a dental treatment option can possibly be.
How Do I Clean My Invisalign Aligners?
Caring for your Invisalign aligners couldn’t be more straightforward. All you have to do is remove them from your mouth, brush them with a toothbrush, and rinse. Then, just put them back in again when you’re done. It’s as easy as that!
Invisalign for Adults
While the idea of braces as an adult may be daunting, with options like Invisalign and clear braces, you can straighten your smile without anyone even noticing! And because Dr. Behl is a Diamond Provider of Invisalign, he has the knowledge and expertise to treat even the most complex orthodontic conditions using Invisalign. If you’ve been told you are not a candidate for Invisalign, put Dr. Behl to the test and come see him for a free 2nd opinion. You may be surprised to hear you ARE a candidate.
Remember, straight teeth lead to healthy teeth. The issue with crooked or spaced teeth is that there is an increased likelihood for dental hygiene problems. It is more likely for build-up to occur between teeth, as well as wear and tear that can end up costing you more in the future. Also, never underestimate the power of confidence that a beautiful smile can give you!
