Sure, most candidates for braces usually get them around high-school age, but it’s never too late to fix crooked teeth. If you’re an adult that has lived with teeth and bite issues your entire life, now is the time to get that fixed with Invisalign® aligners.
It’s actually a lot easier and quicker to make your teeth straight these days. And now, with clear aligners, it’s also a lot less noticeable. Probably the number one complaint reported about braces through the years has been how they look. People get self-conscious about so-called “metal mouth,” and who could fault them? The young kids don’t want metal braces messing up their prom photos, and the adults dislike the stigma of walking around looking like a teenager again. Well, now there is no need to worry anymore about “brace face.”
There are big benefits to clear aligners. First on the list, is the virtually invisible clear plastic from which aligners are made. Most people will never know you’re even wearing them. Secondly, is the convenience. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners can come out for eating, brushing and cleaning. There are no wires and brackets permanently affixed to your teeth, and there are no restrictions on food to keep you from eating whatever you want. Lastly, there are fewer visits to the orthodontist needed. Once you have the molds made, you simply change them out every couple of weeks until your teeth come into perfect alignment.
