Are you an adult unhappy with your smile? Many people, even those who had orthodontia in their youth, have issues with their teeth that make them feel self-conscious. What’s the best answer for adults who need to correct their teeth? Invisalign, hands down.

What makes Invisalign the best choice for adults? There are many different factors that make it a better option than traditional braces.

  • As the name implies, Invisalign is virtually invisible. This makes Invisalign a smart choice for adults, who don’t want to give up a professional appearance in the pursuit of straight teeth. Invisalign is a system that uses aligner trays that gradually shift your teeth into place. These aligner trays are made of smooth, clear, comfortable material that you wear over your teeth.
  • Dental hygiene is easier with Invisalign than with traditional braces. That’s because Invisalign is completely removable, making it easy to continue brushing and flossing as usual. You can also take the aligners out to eat and drink things that might get stuck under traditional braces, like popcorn and corn on the cob. All of this adds up to a lower incidence of tooth decay and plaque than with traditional braces.
  • Invisalign is easier to live with than traditional braces. There are no emergency visits to fix broken hardware because there are no metal brackets and wires with which to contend. Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces because they’re made of SmartTrack® material, which allows for tooth movements that are more predictable and controlled. Additionally, each aligner is trimmed to fit the user’s gum line, so they look and feel better than other types of treatment.

Of course, Invisalign is not the only clear aligner on the market. Other clear aligners, though, don’t have SmartTrack®, and they aren’t custom-trimmed for your gum line. What’s more, other clear aligners aren’t backed by the Invisalign guarantee.
