Invisalign for adults has a number of distinct advantages over braces. Many adult patients get Invisalign after their teeth have shifted back from not wearing their retainers as teens and they can’t believe how easy Invisalign treatment is compared to their earlier experience with braces! Advantages of Invisalign for adults include:
Invisalign aligners are made with a thin, clear plastic material that fits the exact shape of your teeth. This means your co-workers, neighbors, and acquaintances won’t even notice that you’re wearing them.
Comfortable and Convenient
Invisalign is a hassle-free treatment option, with fewer follow-up appointments and less disruption to your life. Because your aligners can be removed at any time, you can take them out to brush and floss for better oral health, and you can keep eating all of your favorite foods.
Thanks to its innovative SmartTrack material and SmartForce features, Invisalign for adults works just as well as traditional braces for a number of different orthodontic issues.
