If You Think You Are Too Old for Braces, Think Again!
Are you one of many adults who missed out on orthodontic work as an adolescent or teen? You might have resigned yourself to crooked or misaligned teeth because you can’t imagine going through the experience of metal wires and braces at this point in your life. But having straight teeth might be easier and more discreet than you think.
Invisible Braces—A Great Solution for Adults
If you are a busy professional or have an active social life, you probably can’t imagine getting traditional braces. Not only are they very obvious but they can be a hassle with frequent visits to the dentist required for adjustments.
But Invisalign invisible braces are different. Using clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth, the Invisalign system gently nudges misaligned teeth into the proper position. The aligners are virtually undetectable—even to a person sitting right next to you.
You won’t need to make recurrent visits to the dentist with Invisalign either. Your dentist will provide you with several sets of aligners at each appointment; you can swap them out yourself every couple of weeks or so.
Eating and cleaning your teeth is also a breeze because the aligners come out of your mouth for both. Unlike with traditional braces, which comes along with several food restrictions, with Invisalign, you can enjoy all of your favourites—while still maintaining your good oral health with regular brushing and flossing.
Why Straight Teeth Are Often Healthier Teeth
Sure, straight teeth will make your smile more attractive, but did you know that properly aligned teeth can also mean you will enjoy better oral health? Straight, even teeth are easier to brush and floss effectively, so you’ll have less chance of developing gum disease or tooth decay.
