With Invisalign, Adults Can Have Straight Teeth Too
Have you ever felt hopeless about having straight teeth because you don’t want a distracting mouth full of metal? If your teeth have moved after previous orthodontics or you never had braces, you might be self-conscious about your crooked teeth. Every time you smile, you see the teeth that don’t line up and wonder if others do too. Maybe you’ve even started smiling less often and have even noticed that food gets trapped in the crevices.
Fortunately, there’s no reason to feel hopeless if you’re an adult or older teen with misaligned teeth. Your Invisalign dentist in Fort Collins can help you smile with confidence again.
Invisalign is an advanced clear aligner system that straightens smiles faster and more discreetly than traditional metal braces. Revolutionizing the braces industry for the last 20 years, Invisalign has given adults new hope for straighter teeth.
Why Should I Choose Invisalign?
Never heard of clear aligners? These almost-invisible trays snap over your teeth and are worn like a retainer. Since Invisalign aligners are removable and have no wires or brackets, you don’t have to avoid sticky or crunchy foods like you would with traditional braces. You can also clean your teeth normally without worrying about hidden crevices in your braces.
Adults love Invisalign because they work faster than traditional, fixed braces. You wear each aligner for one to two weeks before switching it out for the next one. Each aligner is a slightly different shape, straightening your teeth in only 12 to 18 months, depending on your individual needs.
What Is the Invisalign Process?
The first step in the Invisalign process is to visit your dentist for an in-depth evaluation. If you’re a good candidate, your dentist will create a digital treatment plan for you, make impressions of your mouth, and send them to Invisalign. When you return to the office, your dentist will discuss how to use the trays.
