Are You Too Old To Think About Getting Braces?
When you aren’t happy with the look of your teeth it can be tough to keep smiling. Many adults pass through their adolescence with fairly straight teeth when full braces are usually needed. But, with jaw growth and pressure from wisdom teeth, over time your adult teeth can become crowded and crooked. Trying to hide your smile because you hate your crooked or gapped teeth can be a thing of the past.
Maybe you just never had the time or the budget to afford traditional braces when you were younger, or you think that you are too old to wear braces now. You couldn’t be more wrong. You no longer have to end up with a mouth full of metal and wires that can be embarrassing and unattractive as an adult.
With Invisalign clear aligners, you can correct your smile in very little time and few people will even notice. The clear resin aligners are molded for comfort and can be used to correct gaps, align teeth and straighten your smile, and keep you looking great the whole time. Take a look at some of the advantages of using Invisalign to get your smile back on track.
The science behind classic metal and wire braces can be a bit uncertain. With the excessive pressure behind braces combined with a growing adolescent body and jaw, it is hard to predict final results. But with Invisalign you can see a fully computerized module design of exactly what shape your teeth will be molded into and exactly what results to expect.
Length of Process
After a full oral examination, your doctor should be able to share a treatment plan with you, detailing your aligner schedule and how long you will need to have treatment. Invisalign is much faster than braces and can correct your smile in as little as a year depending on the corrections needed. Knowing exactly how long you will have to wear your aligners will let you easily plan any upcoming events like a vacation or a wedding.
When you picture yourself in braces, seeing the traditional flashy and crowded mouth full of metal and wires can be disturbing. Many people don’t want to consider having their smile corrected because of the unattractive nature of braces as the solution. Invisalign molded aligners are made with clear materials and snap right over your existing teeth. They are very subtle and don’t draw a lot of attention.
Metal and wire braces can be very uncomfortable to wear. Not only can the pressure from your braces cause pain and discomfort in your jaw, but the rough cold metal in your mouth can be irritating and even painful. Invisalign smooth molded aligners have no rough edges and fit smoothly and tightly over your teeth. They are also removable, giving you the freedom to take a rest and remove them when you eat.
