Many adults never get an orthodontic treatment because they believe braces are only for teens. There are also adults who had braces during adolescence but didn’t wear their retainers afterward which resulted in shifted teeth. No matter the circumstance, adults no longer have to worry about wearing braces as an adult. Instead, they can straighten their teeth using a discreet alternative – Invisalign. Learn about the different reasons why Invisalign is the perfect orthodontic treatment for adults.

1. Invisalign Treatment is Discreet

One of the top reasons why Invisalign is perfect for adults is because it’s discreet. Most adults skip orthodontic treatments because they worry that metal braces are too noticeable. With Invisalign, patients wear clear plastic aligners that are hardly noticeable. Adults can go about their lives as usual without feeling as though they’re drawing extra attention to their teeth during their orthodontic treatment.

Most people don’t even notice when someone is wearing Invisalign aligners right in front of them.

2. Removable Invisalign Aligners Offer Convenience

Since Invisalign aligners are removable, the treatment is entirely convenient. During treatment, patients don’t have to give up any of their favorite foods. Instead, all they have to do is remove their aligners and eat whatever they want. In addition, brushing, flossing, and dental appointments are just as easy as before treatment.

Simply pop out your aligners for a dental appointment or to brush and floss your teeth! Adults love the convenience of Invisalign.

3. Invisalign Accommodates a Busy Schedule

During any orthodontic treatment, it’s normal to visit your dentist frequently. With Invisalign however, it doesn’t require as many appointments as other treatments. This is because Invisalign is fabricated in a way that promotes comfort which means there is less need for non-routine (emergency) visits. As a bonus, checkup appointments go by fast since we only need to check on your progress.

If you’re an adult with a busy schedule, you will love how little time you have to spend at dental appointments with Invisalign treatment.

4. Invisalign Can Treat Most Cases

The last reason why Invisalign is perfect for adults is that it can treat most cases. Invisalign can address gaps, crookedness, crowding, overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
