As an adult, your time is often in high demand. Between work, family, and social occasions, you may not get much opportunity to think about yourself. It can be hard to find the time for your own needs, therefore you need a dental solution that works with you and your schedule. Consider Invisalign, which can accommodate your desire for a straighter, more attractive smile no matter how hectic life gets.
The Best Option for Adults Who Want Straighter Teeth
Invisalign is a subtle, comfortable, custom-fit dental solution that can give you the beautiful smile you want in just months, without any obvious headgear or complicated routines. It’s a product that works around busy lives rather than interfering with them. Keep reading to learn more.
No wires, no brackets, and no embarrassment. As the name indicates, Invisalign works to align your teeth invisibly. Your colleagues won’t know you’re straightening your teeth even as you work. Even better, any photos you take won’t be ruined by the telltale metallic gleam of braces.
Unlike traditional braces, which can cause discomfort until you become used to them, Invisalign exerts less pressure on the teeth. Regular adjustments by your dentist keep the treatment on track, fine-tuning the alignment to bring your teeth into their correct positions.
Invisalign dental trays don’t get in the way of your life. You’re able to take them out to eat and drink as normal without annoying restrictions. Popcorn isn’t off limits. Neither are your favorite beverages. Since Invisalign can be removed when necessary, it’s also easier to practice thorough dental hygiene.
It’s Easy to Maintain
While you do have to wear your aligner trays for 20-22 hours a day, Invisalign is comfortable for every one of those hours. Cleaning is as simple, too. Apart from regular soaking, all you need to do is pop them out, brush thoroughly with your preferred toothbrush and toothpaste, then rinse to keep them fresh.
It’s Faster than Braces
Depending on your particular case, complete treatment with Invisalign typically only takes 9-15 months. That’s much shorter than the 18-36 months required by braces! You can have the smile you want without any discomfort or time-consuming procedures that cut into your lifestyle.
