Are you an adult who never had your teeth straightened as a child? If so, you likely deal with embarrassing situations at work and in your personal life. And as an adult, when your teeth are out of line, it can cause problems with your facial structure, such as a premature sagging jaw line or sunken cheeks. The good news is that today’s orthodontics offer options for adults as well as teens. If you haven’t heard of Invisalign braces, here are four reasons why adults love them.
No adult wants to walk around with traditional metal braces in their mouth. They could interfere with personal relationships, and if you need to look professional for your job, a mouthful of braces isn’t the look you’re likely after. But Invisalign braces are invisible. You can wear them all day long and no one will know that you’re in the process of straightening your teeth.
Sometimes you just want to eat a meal or drink something hot without having to worry about your braces. With the new orthodontics, you can take your Invisalign braces in and out as you please. With traditional braces, you have to be careful that you don’t break them with hard foods, but you’ll never be limited in what you eat and drink with Invisalign.
When you wear metal braces you have to periodically visit the dentist to have the wires tightened and adjusted. This is a very painful process that can leave your mouth feeling sore for days. Sometimes it can cause the metal wires to poke the inside of your mouth, causing abrasions. But with Invisalign braces, you won’t have to endure that type of pain on your dental visits.
It can be difficult to clean metal braces with their many moving parts. But because Invisalign braces can be easily taken in and out, they are much easier to clean.
