Braces can be a touchy subject for some adults. Maybe you’ve seen your child or grandchild experience braces, and you definitely don’t want to join the metal mouth club! We don’t blame you at all, but we do know that sometimes, braces can be a very important procedure for adults of all ages. We understand not wanting to deal with metal braces, but that doesn’t mean orthodontics are off the table. We also offer Invisalign orthodontics, which allow you to get the work you need while maintaining a beautiful smile.
Why Braces Are Necessary
You might be wondering why braces would be necessary for you in the first place. After all, you’ve lived with your smile for this long, why not continue? Orthodontics can be a cosmetic procedure, but we also use orthodontics to correct alignment and comfort issues. For example, your misaligned teeth could be causing you to grind your teeth, break your teeth, or do damage to your TMJ (the joint that holds your lower jaw in place). A 12-18 month orthodontic experience will end those issues completely!
How Invisalign Changes the Experience
The great thing about Invisalign is that it ends the discomfort associated with traditional metal braces. The treatment time is shorter (12-18 months instead of 24-36 months), and the appliances themselves are more comfortable. No one will even know you have them in because they are clear, plastic aligners that fit perfectly over your teeth. The smooth surfaces feel great against your gums, lips, and cheeks, and you don’t have to deal with the pain of having your wires tightened! Your aligners will come in a series that you switch out every 14 days.
No matter your age, an Invisalign solution can be a great way for you to get a happier, healthier smile. Contact us today to learn more about this option. We would love to explain it in more detail and let you know if it is the right procedure for you! We can’t wait to hear from you very soon!
