The Reasons Why Many Adults are Choosing to Get Orthodontic Treatment with Invis

Posted by Kelvinray84 on September 15th, 2016

Today many people are choosing not to wear traditional metal braces and instead are enjoying Invisalign®, a popular alternative to visible metal braces that are not bonded to the teeth. Far different from conventional metal braces, the Invisalign® System consists of a series of clear, removable, smooth plastic aligners that gradually move teeth into the desired position. Just as the name suggests, Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible, which means you can improve your smile without most people even noticing that you're undergoing orthodontic treatment.

What are the advantages of Invisalign®? Because the Invisalign® aligners are removable, you can take them out when you eat, brush and floss and then simply put them back in when done. This means that throughout the treatment process you can continue enjoying all the foods you love and maintain good oral hygiene. Another advantage is that the soft, flexible material which the aligners are made of won't irritate the inside of your mouth. Unlike metal wires and brackets, the aligners provide you with a higher level of comfort. Also, for teeth grinders, the Invisalign® aligners can double as thin mouth guards that will provide your teeth with protection from excessive wear.

What’s the Invisalign® process? Once it's been determined by dentist that you are a candidate for Invisalign®, they will use a special computer software to design a plan for the movement of your teeth from their current positions into the optimal alignment. This movement will be broken down into stages. For each stage, two plastic aligners, one for your top teeth and one for the bottom, will be made. You will be instructed to wear the first set of aligners for two weeks for at least 20-22 hours per day. You'll then move on to the next set of aligners in the series and will continue doing so until your teeth are aligned correctly.

If you're an adult and would like to have your teeth straightened discreetly without having to wear visible metal braces, Invisalign® is the clear choice. Many adults who have put off having their teeth straightened because they didn't want to wear metal braces have gone ahead and improved their smiles with Invisalign®.
