Invisalign: The #1 Discreet Way To Straighten Your Teeth
Discreet Teeth Straightening With Invisalign
Are you confident about your smile?
Perhaps you’re shy about flashing a broad grin or embarrassed about showing your less than straight teeth in public.
If you’re an adult who missed out on orthodontic treatment as a teenager, it’s not too late.
Straightening teeth is about much more than mere aesthetics – straight teeth are healthy teeth!
Poorly aligned teeth can affect their longevity as well as your overall oral health, being harder to keep clean and more likely to develop cavities, fractures and uneven wear.
Luckily, orthodontic technology and dental treatment options have come on in leaps and bounds over the last 15 years or so.
It is now possible to correct misaligned teeth, close gaps and much more in a way that doesn’t involve unattractive looking and uncomfortable ‘train track’ type traditional braces.
Whereas orthodontic treatment used to be chiefly given to children and young adults, orthodontists today see about 50/50 children and adults – so you’re not alone.
You may have never had braces when you were younger or perhaps you undid all the good work by not wearing your retainers at the end of your treatment period.
Your teeth may have shifted over the years or maybe you’re now simply more conscious of your appearance. Or there may be a medical reason why you’re now looking to have your teeth properly aligned.
Whatever your reasons are, you can now choose some excellent, adult friendly ways to straighten your teeth.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Invisalign straightens teeth by using removable and almost invisible aligners that are made specifically for your teeth.
Each aligner is replaced every 2 weeks to gently, gradually and progressively move your teeth towards the final desired position.
Unlike traditional fixed braces, Invisalign aligners have no wires or metal brackets. Instead, they control the timing and amount of movement per aligner according to your individual treatment plan.
The aligners are designed to treat a host of different minor and more complex straightening issues.
The treatment is ideal for adult patients who don’t want to draw attention to the fact that they’re having orthodontic work done.
Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear, not very noticeable and can be removed for special occasion or while you’re eating.
The average treatment time is 14 months to achieve the desired result, though the exact time depends on the complexity of the situation and can range from 6 to 18 months overall.
