As an accomplished adult, the last thing you want is to be told you need orthodontics. You might shoot your dentist a death glare because the only image coming into your mind when we say orthodontics is a middle school student with wires coming out of his lips. Orthodontics have come a long way, and there are not more options for adults than there used to be. With Invisalign technology, you can wear your orthodontics to work without drawing one bit of attention to your teeth!
The thing about orthodontics is that they are a necessary part of a healthy smile for many people. Some get them early, as young teens, but not everyone is able to have that experience. Misaligned teeth are harmful to the overall health of your smile because they are more prone to infection, decay, and damage from bruxism (grinding your teeth). It’s important to correct misaligned teeth not only for your look, but for the health of your smile.
The Invisalign Difference
Invisalign braces are clear plastic aligners that fit perfectly over your teeth. You will wear your aligners for 22 out of every 24 hours, taking them out to care for your teeth and to eat. Every two weeks, you will switch out for a new aligner that will add new pressure to your teeth. Typical treatment lasts for 18 months, which means you will wear about 24-36 different aligners to create the perfect smile.
Wearing orthodontics to work might seem like an impossible situation, but Invisalign takes the embarrassment out of straightening your teeth! No one will know you are wearing aligners unless you choose to tell them. Contact us today to learn more about the Invisalign solution. We’d love to help you get a happier, healthier smile!
