Currently, one in five orthodontic patients are adults who are actively pursuing the health and aesthetic benefits of straight smiles. The American of Orthodontists says that perhaps they never had an opportunity to wear braces as children. Or, they shied away from the "metal mouth" look of conventional braces. Whatever the reason, they now wish to avoid unattractive gaps and overcrowding, excessive enamel wear, decay, and gum disease due to misaligned teeth. Clear Invisalign aligners from Summerville Dentistry in Evans, GA, may be exactly what they need.
The benefits of Invisalign
What's so special about Invisalign? Older teens and adults like their discreet appearance. Custom-made according to three dimensional imaging and innovative design software, the thin, clear aligners fit tightly over top and bottom teeth. However, they are nearly impossible to detect.
Gradually, the aligners move teeth into positions that look and function well. They treat common orthodontic issues such as:
- Tooth tipping
- Tooth rotation
- Protruding front teeth
In addition, Invisalign appliances offer may wonderful lifestyle and comfort benefits such as:
- Easy removal for hygiene and meals
- No dietary restrictions
- Quicker treatment time (an average of one year, less than half the time of traditional braces)
- No oral irritation
- Simple cleaning (just brush with your usual toothpaste and rinse)
- In and out progress checks every six weeks at Summerville Dentistry (no lengthy and painful adjustments to wires and brackets)
In all, the typical Invisalign patient wears 18 to 30 pairs of aligners, changing them every other week according to their individualized treatment plans.
