Dealing with crooked teeth as an adult is slightly different than doing so in childhood. For instance, straightening them is just as important, but you may be more concerned about how braces could affect your daily work and social life. Fortunately, many adults and older teens don’t have to worry thanks to the benefits of Invisalign® clear aligners, which eliminate the need (and concerns) for traditional braces. Today, we examine why Invisalign® may be a good idea to help you correct your smile while still keeping your smile’s image free of conspicuous brackets and wires.
Why You Need Straighter Teeth
The most important reason why Invisalign® is a good idea is because it makes straightening crooked teeth easier and more comfortable. This encourages more patients to undergo orthodontic treatment and avoid the many potentially serious consequences that can result from crooked teeth. Such consequences could include progressive bruxism (constant teeth-grinding), extensive tooth damage, jaw joint dysfunction (TMJ disorder), and more. Also, Invisalign® helps more patients enjoy the confidence of a straighter and more symmetrical smile
What Invisalign® Does for You
The ways in which Invisalign® makes orthodontic treatment easier and more comfortable include being nearly invisible and temporarily removable. Invisalign® utilizes clear aligners that progressively straighten crooked teeth as you cycle through the series. The aligners are crafted from virtually invisible acrylic, which remains discreet even when placed over your teeth, and you can take them off to eat, brush and floss your teeth without the inconvenience of having to work around brackets and wires.
