For more than 20 years, Invisalign has been the industry standard bearer when it comes to invisible braces. Although Invisalign was first created for adults, some people continue to believe that they are too old to use it to straighten their teeth. If you have been on the fence about getting orthodontic treatment in general or Invisalign in particular, the following are a few reasons why maturity is the ideal time to correct your smile:
You Have a Strong Dedication to Achieving the Very Best Results
Adults who have been diagnosed with a need for orthodontic treatment are among the most desirable customers for Invisalign because of a number of factors. The primary reason for this is that they are devoting their own time and money to improving their smile, which means that they are dedicated to seeing the process through to a successful conclusion. Patients needing orthodontic treatment who are younger typically require their parents' continued encouragement or reminders to follow the home-care guidelines given to them. Adults do not participate since they are the ones who have the most at stake in the therapy process being successful.
If you've previously had braces and had orthodontic relapse, you've always wanted braces but never had them, or you want to finally address awkward teeth misalignment, Invisalign is the best solution for you. In point of fact, adults and teenagers who are more mature and have the commitment necessary to wear the aligners as advised have the most success with Invisalign.
Adults have the level of accountability necessary to achieve the greatest results possible with Invisalign when they are aware that they must wear their aligners for a predetermined length of time for a predetermined number of days.
They are Adaptable to Your Hectic Lifestyle.
When you obtain braces as an adult, one of the most difficult challenges is figuring out how to work them into your daily schedule. How are you able to find time to acquire braces in addition to working full-time, transporting your children to their after-school activities, and attending their adjustment appointments?
Fortunately, Invisalign is not like other orthodontic treatments. As a result of the fact that each of your aligners is digitally designed, our dentist in Summerlin will give you many sets at a time to take home. Just put them on as advised, and then take them out and replace them when necessary. It is essential that you adhere to the timetable that you have created (most people change them out every two weeks.) If you do this, you won't need to go in for the adjustment appointments that are normally required for people who wear traditional braces.
In most cases, Dr. Cohan will only require you to come in for monitoring approximately once every other week. Even individuals who have careers that need them to be in the public eye, such as those in sales or public relations, find that Invisalign works well for them. If you feel that the aligners will be too cumbersome for you during certain times of the day, you can take them out for the time being. You can anticipate the best possible outcomes provided that you continue to utilize them for at least 20 to 22 hours every day.
Because they are detachable, your aligners won't have any effect on the routine activities you normally do. There is no requirement for you to make any adjustments to the foods you eat, the way you brush or floss your teeth, or anything else. Adults who lead busy lives can benefit greatly from the versatility of Invisalign treatment.
Nobody will be able to see them.
When worn over the teeth, Invisalign braces are virtually invisible since they are fabricated from clear plastic that does not contain BPA. The only method for another person to determine whether or not you are using Invisalign is if you deliberately stop what you are doing and demonstrate it to them. Even when wearing Invisalign, you won't notice any changes to the way you talk at all because the aligners are virtually invisible.
As long as you remove your Invisalign trays before each meal and clean them in the manner specified by the manufacturer, your clear aligners should maintain their transparent appearance. If you are going to be drinking anything other than water, you should remove your trays before doing so. However, if you do see some accumulation in your Invisalign trays, soaking them in a special effervescent cleanser can help release debris and keep the aligners as see-through as possible. This is especially helpful if you have noticed some buildup in your Invisalign trays.
Even if you whiten your teeth as part of the Invisalign treatment, people will still notice a change because the aligners are virtually invisible.
Your Oral Health Can Improve Thanks to Invisalign, Too
It is not solely for the sake of improving one's appearance to realign one's teeth so that the bite is more even and straight. Additionally, it improves the overall health of your smile as well as its functionality.
For instance, when your teeth are aligned properly, you have a lower risk of developing TMJ condition, abnormal wear patterns in your enamel, cavities, or gum disease. This is because your teeth are better able to support themselves. If you adjust the way your teeth bite together, they will function more effectively for a longer period of time. In addition to this, they are less likely to collect tartar, plaque, and food particles in the spaces between them, which results in healthier teeth and gums.
Invisalign is a smart method to treat your oral health difficulties in a holistic and comprehensive manner. If you have had issues in the past with reoccurring cavities or gum disease, Invisalign is a smart way to address your oral health concerns. Particularly if you are preparing to fix just one or two specific teeth where the difficulties have been exacerbated as a result of the misalignment of the teeth.
