5 Truths About Getting Invisalign as an Adult

invisalign for adults philadelphia orthodontistsBraces as an adult? Might sound crazy, but it isn’t, not with options like Invisalign available to you. Take advantage of the orthodontic innovation that can give you the straight, beautiful teeth you’ve always wanted.

1. Invisalign was made for you.

Invisalign was designed with the adult orthodontic patient in mind. When you’re busy with your job, family, and other obligations, you don’t want to worry about fitting metal braces into the mix and having them take center stage. Invisalign is discreet and gets the job done without getting in the way of your lifestyle.

2. You’re never too old for braces.

If you missed the window to get braces as a teen, but you still wish you had straight teeth, your opportunity has not passed. It’s right in front of you – in the form of Invisalign. You might never say yes to brackets and wires as an adult, but Invisalign fits seamlessly into your professional and personal life so you don’t have to feel self-conscious about undergoing orthodontic treatment.

3. You have time for Invisalign.

No matter what kind of orthodontics you get, they do take time and commitment. However, with Invisalign, you only need to see your orthodontist every six weeks, sometimes even less often, as you are trusted to switch out your Invisalign trays and keep your treatment progressing on your own time. As for upkeep, you already brush and floss your teeth twice a day – all you do as an Invisalign patient is add in a few more cleanings of your teeth and aligners throughout the day to ensure that they stay clear and fresh. Time commitment? About five or six minutes. You can do it.

4. Your oral health will improve.

Straight teeth are healthier teeth, it’s a simple fact. When teeth are in alignment, they are easier to clean, which means all your brushing and flossing efforts will be that much more effective and you will be protected from decay, infection, and any discomfort that can come from it. A year or so with Invisalign can save you hours of time, pain, and cost in the future.

5. There are no food restrictions.

The last thing you want as an adult is to be told what you can and cannot eat or drink. With Invisalign, you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages, as long as your aligners are out of your mouth. The only limitation with Invisalign is this: You cannot have anything but water when the trays are in place. That means no more sipping on coffee or soda all day at the risk of staining or damaging your aligners. Simply remove the trays for all snacks and meals and you’ll be just fine.
