Adult Orthodontics Are Invisible With Invisalign

Adult Orthodontics Are Invisible With Invisalign

Welcome back to our Florida oral health blog!

It is hard to believe that summer has given way to autumn. Not that it ever really feels like fall in the sunshine state!

Here at Clearwater Dental Associates, we are focused all year round on creating healthy, radiant smiles for the families of Clearwater, Florida.

In our office on Druid Road, we offer a comprehensive range of dental services for folks of all ages and from all walks of life.

We even offer an “invisible” orthodontic treatment, called Invisalign, for our busy adult patients who could benefit from a hassle-free realignment.

Do They Even Make Braces For Adults?

Of course!

Obviously young people do make up a huge part of the braces-wearing demographic.

Still, we actually see a fair amount of adult patients in the Clearwater, FL area who could benefit from some orthodontic treatment but would rather steer clear of what they think this will entail.

The thing to keep in mind is that if your teeth are overcrowded, somewhat gapped, or hopelessly crooked, Invisalign can actually do plenty for you in a manner that is dignified enough for adults to get on board with this method of treatment.

Let us reassure you of a few things from the get-go.

You are probably imagining a mouth full of awkward and obvious metal that requires monthly tune ups at the dentist’s office to keep things moving forward.

What’s more, you are probably even picturing the special tools required for cleaning all the food your braces will trap after each meal.

And you are probably also envisioning all the major life events that will take place during the three years that your appliances will be in your mouth.

You can forget about all of that.

Because, luckily, none of those images accurately reflects what your orthodontic treatment experience will look like with the Invisalign system.

What’s The Difference?

Invisalign is radically different than most conventional approaches to orthodontic treatment.

And we’re not just saying that.

This ground-breaking system works by relying on a series of aligners (that are based on molds of your mouth) to facilitate the movements of your teeth.

The neat thing is that by using advanced technology, we can actually plan out your entire treatment and design your aligner trays during your preliminary consultation, allowing you to switch them out yourself at the appropriate times throughout the course of treatment.

Just like traditional orthodontic wires, each Invisalign tray is specifically designed to move certain teeth, at certain times.

Unlike clunky metal braces, however, the sleek Invisalign aligners are purposefully discreet in terms of appearance.

They are made of clear, virtually “invisible” plastic, which makes it hard for anyone to notice that you are in the midst of an orthodontic realignment.

You can’t beat the convenience of Invisalign either.

When the spirit moves you, you can actually remove Invisalign aligners at will.

As such, there are no dietary restrictions or special tools necessary for cleaning.

In fact, you can just pop them out and rinse them under warm water and you will be good to go.

Additionally, Invisalign aligners fit snugly over your teeth, allowing for a more comfortable experience throughout the process.

There certainly won’t be any cuts or sores inflicted by a maze of metal wires!

The best part is that you won’t have to measure years of your life by your “adult braces period” because the treatment process is extremely effective and can be completed in about 12 months.
