Invisalign Clear AlignersIf you are like most people, you have heard of Invisalign in passing. Most people have heard Invisalign is a more aesthetically pleasing version of braces that works surprisingly quickly. The benefits of these corrective dental aligners make them worth every penny and then some. Invisalign straightens crooked teeth, corrects spacing issues and even remedies bite problems. Here is an in-depth look at the many merits of Invisalign for adults.

No one Will Have any Idea You are Using Invisalign Clear Aligners

A large part of the appeal of Invisalign1 for adults is the fact that these aligners are completely translucent. You can don your Invisalign aligners at work and elsewhere yet no one will have any clue you are using a teeth-straightening solution. Invisalign aligners are completely clear. An onlooker would have to get within a couple of inches of your mouth to have any idea you are using Invisalign. The clear plastic really does make your crooked or improperly spaced teeth look just like the other “normal” teeth in your mouth.

Take a moment to think about how nice it will be to open your mouth wide to smile, eat or do anything else without concern about your appearance. If you were to rely on traditional metal braces, the exact opposite would be the case. Those who are even slightly concerned with the look of their teeth and smile will find Invisalign for adults is the superior solution. This is the aesthetically pleasing teeth-straightening dental technology the masses have been waiting for.

Invisalign for Adults Requires Minimal Effort

Invisalign braces are provided in a set to gradually improve problematic teeth over time. Meet with our dentist for the creation of your unique Invisalign aligners and you will receive in-depth guidance as to the proper time to change to the next set of aligners. Adhere to the dentist's schedule uniquely customized for your specific smile correction and your teeth will look exactly as desired in a year's time or less. Ideally, you will keep your aligners in for 20-22 hours each day to hasten the corrective movement. There is no need to visit with the dentist over and over again for ongoing adjustments as required with conventional braces.

Invisalign Corrects all Sorts of Oral Health Issues

Invisalign for adults remedies an array of oral health and beauty challenges. This is more than a solution for crooked teeth. Invisalign clear aligners will correct your misaligned bite, provide the proper shape for gapped teeth, correct overcrowded teeth and straighten out those crooked chompers.

Invisalign also fixes protruding teeth, crossbites, underbites, overbites, open bites and excessively crowded teeth. If you have any such dental issues, meet with our dentist as soon as possible to learn more about how Invisalign clear aligners can correct these problems.

Dental Hygiene is Easy With Invisalign Braces

Ask anyone who wears traditional braces about their experience and you will find there are several factors that get old with traditional braces. Unlike braces, Invisalign for adults empowers patients to clean their teeth whenever desired without significant impediment. You can floss, brush and rinse with mouthwash in a moment's notice. Simply remove your aligners, perform the cleaning and move on with your day or evening.

Eat Whatever You Desire

Those who wear traditional braces are limited to the consumption of specific types of foods. Wouldn't it be nice to munch away on cotton candy, bagels, licorice, caramel, pretzels, nuts and other crunchy/sticky delights without worry? You can enjoy these items and just about every other type of food if you opt for Invisalign instead of comparably restrictive regular braces.

Invisalign is Comfortable

Those who use Invisalign for adults are eager to testify to its comfort. Invisalign aligners do not press overly-tightly. Nor do these aligners cause any pain along the gums. The same cannot be said of conventional braces that often irritate or even cut the gums. Invisalign aligners are comfortable to the point that you will quickly forget they are in your mouth.

Invisalign for Adults Works Surprisingly Quickly

It takes upwards of two years or longer for conventional braces to spur changes. Invisalign typically works in a year or less. Though it might take upwards of a year and a half for Invisalign to correct teens' crowded or crooked teeth, adults who use this dental aid show significant improvement in as little as 10 months. In the end, the length of time necessary for Invisalign to improve your unique tooth challenges hinges on your specific issues, your commitment to oral healthcare and your willingness to switch out the old aligners for new ones at the appropriate intervals. Follow the dentist's instructions and you will likely enjoy the intended results in about a year's time.

Each Invisalign Aligner is Custom-fit for Your Nuanced Mouth

Invisalign aligners differ in accordance with each unique patient's dental challenges as well as his or her idiosyncratic mouth measurements. The dentist starts out by taking x-rays, measurements, and impressions of the teeth and jaw. The dentist will show you what your teeth will look like when the treatment is complete. You will be provided with a custom-tailored treatment plan designed for your specific mouth. Three-dimensional imaging is subsequently used to generate the perfect aligners for the nuances of your flawed teeth. Change the aligners every couple weeks as directed by your dentist and your teeth will gradually move into the proper positions as time progresses.

The Confidence Boost You are Looking For

Invisalign aligners are nearly 100% translucent. You can wear these aligners without the worry of anyone noticing you are going through orthodontic treatment. Each of your custom-made Invisalign aligners is molded to the nuances of your specific teeth for the perfect fit and appearance. This way, you will not have to worry about unsightly braces covering your teeth. You will be able to be your true self in every social setting from work to family reunions, social outings with friends and other get-togethers.
