Did you know that 1-in-5 orthodontic patients are adults over the age of 18?
That’s right: 20% of patients who want or need to straighten their teeth are adults. While many consider childhood the optimal time to address this issue, it’s not too late to do so once you’ve reached adulthood.
However, what grown man or woman wants to have typical wired braces when they’re trying to navigate the complexities of adulthood? Common concerns from adults with wire braces include:
- Judgement from peers
- Pain/difficulty eating and drinking
- The length of time needed for wire braces to effectively straighten teeth
That’s where Invisalign comes in! Invisalign effectively eliminates the three most common concerns adults have when considering braces to straighten their teeth. Invisalign aligners are clear, so when they are being worn, they are virtually impossible to see from a normal distance. Invisalign aligners can also be easily removed, so if you do not want to wear them in a particular moment, you can simply take them out and store them in a case. Additionally, Invisalign aligners typically only need to be worn for an average of six months before seeing the desired results.
