According to the American Association of Orthodontists, about 33% of adults in America are not happy with their smiles. If you find that you make up part of the 1/3 of the nation that’s self-conscious about their smile, you should definitely do something about it- your smile is forever! One of the most effective, subtle, and convenient ways to get a better smile is to get Invisalign treatment. Here’s why you should consider it.
There is no such thing as being too late to fix your smile. This is why a lot of adults are going for Invisalign. In fact, according to the American Association of Orthodontists, over 20% of people who receive orthodontic treatment are adults. Invisalign aligners can correct a number of teeth alignment issues. For instance, you can use them to correct things like overcrowded teeth and teeth gaps.
One of the reasons why adults may feel unwilling to receive orthodontic treatment is that they do not want to draw extra attention to themselves. In fact, most adults initially say that they would rather have crooked smiles than deal with the perceived embarrassment of wearing braces at an older age. This is where Invisalign aligners come in, as this type of treatment is super discreet, and unless someone is standing close enough to touch you, they will be virtually unable to detect the clear aligner trays in your mouth. That’s the whole reason they’re called Invisalign- the aligners are practically invisible! So, if you want to straighten your smile without anyone knowing, you can use Invisalign to do so discreetly and comfortably.
Other types of orthodontic treatment often come with a lot of limitations and changes in oral hygiene routines. For instance, you may not be able to eat certain foods with braces, and you will need a special type of toothbrush to clean metal braces. The great thing about Invisalign is that your daily life will not be impacted in any way by this treatment. You can stick to your typical diet, and you can clean your teeth as you normally would. This is because Invisalign aligners are removable. This means you can simply remove them when you eat, and you can also remove them when you want to brush or floss your teeth. Apart from that, Invisalign requires less in-person appointments and checkups than other forms of orthodontic treatment, which means that it will blend more seamlessly and easily into your daily life.
These are just a few of the key reasons why adults should consider Invisalign treatment. If you would like to get the smile you’ve always wanted without anyone even knowing, give us a call at 704.892.3300 today to get your FREE Invisalign consult on the books at Lineberger Orthodontics!
