As you age, there will be certain things you are insecure about in your appearance. If you did not adhere to wearing a retainer when you were younger or did not have braces as a child, you may have some crooked teeth that affect your smile and bite. You may have resigned yourself to a crooked smile for the rest of your life, but never fear! There are many benefits to straightening your smile using clear aligner therapy as an adult, regardless of age.

Discreet

The biggest benefit to using Invisalign to straighten your teeth is discretion: no one needs to know that you are straightening your teeth unless you want them to know. Clear trays fit directly over your teeth, slightly shifting them into place. The trays are replaced every two weeks with slight adjustments to account for movement. By supplementing your Invisalign with Propel or OrthoPulse Accelerated Orthodontics, you’ll be able to cut your treatment time in half for your perfect smile!

Increased Confidence

Your appearance can affect your confidence level: if you are insecure with crooked or crowded teeth, you may not be inclined to smile, even when you’re happy or at an event. Straightening your teeth as an adult can give you a confidence boost and help improve your professional and social lives.

Easier to Maintain Dental Health

With traditional metal braces, food can get stuck between brackets and wires and stay they for longer than it should due to the complications of flossing and thorough brushing around the orthodontia. Invisalign does not have that problem. The trays are easily removed for eating and cleaning, allowing you to disinfect the trays, brush and floss your teeth per your dentist’s recommendation. The accessibility to your teeth can even improve your oral health because you’ll need to make sure your teeth are clean before reinstalling the clear aligner trays.
