Orthodontic treatment isn't just for kids! If you're an adult with healthy teeth and gums, looking to straighten your smile, Invisalign may be the ideal orthodontic treatment option for you. In today's blog our Surrey dentists share how Invisalign can discreetly help you to achieve a straighter smile.
Invisalign is a Low-Profile Orthodontic Treatment Option
It used to be very unusual for adults to undergo orthodontic treatment. Many adults believed that orthodontic treatment was just for kids, and that braces just weren't compatible with their professional image. Other adults just felt too self-conscious to wear braces to straighten their teeth. Now, thanks in part to lower-profile orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign, more and more adults are choosing to correct misalignment issues left untreated in childhood, to help improve the appearance and function of their smile.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
For many adults, Invisalign is the ideal way to straighten teeth discreetly. Invisalign clear orthodontic aligners can help to correct many misalignment issues from the most simple to more complex issues, with hardly anyone noticing! Invisalign gently shifts your teeth into their corrected positions through a series of custom made aligners. Invisalign aligners are made from thin clear plastic, making them almost completely invisible when worn. That means you can straighten your teeth without worrying what others will think of your orthodontic treatment.
The Removable Way to Straighten Teeth
While it is essential to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day to achieve the desired results, Invisalign aligners are removable for times when you don't want anyone to know that you're straightening your smile. Removable aligners also mean that you won't have to be concerned about dietary restrictions while straightening your teeth. Just remove the aligners and enjoy all of the foods you love without worrying about damaging your braces. Regardless of whether you're at an important business lunch or at the movies on date night, with Invisalign orthodontic treatment you won't need to worry about what you'll be able to eat.
