When kids and teens get braces, it’s usually seen as a rite of passage. They’ll wear braces for a year or two, then have straight teeth that they’ll enjoy as an adult. Many adults, however, are looking to use adult orthodontics to fix bite issues that they have developed into their 30s, 40s, and 50s.
There’s no reason why you can’t get orthodontic care as an adult. At least 30% of the patients at most orthodontic practices are adults who would like to correct their teeth and bite problems.
If you would like to have your teeth straightened, but don’t like the look of braces, the adult Invisalign system is an easy-to-use alternative to adult braces.
Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners to straighten teeth and correct your bite, just as traditional metal braces do. However, Invisalign is perfect for adults, since the aligners are nearly invisible, which means that no one will know that you’re wearing them. They are also removable, so you can take them off when you eat, drink, and brush your teeth. You won’t have any dietary restrictions and can eat whatever you like. Additionally, this system allows you to properly brush and floss, which helps with your oral health.
