We all know someone who currently has braces or has undergone orthodontic treatment. However, few of them are adults. Many people assume that wearing braces is something that happen only during the teenage years, but with the evolution of clear braces, it is never too late to choose orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign® to achieve the smile you want.

Benefits of Invisalign® clear aligners include:

– Easier cleaning since the aligners can be removed when you eat and brush your teeth
– Less risk of bad oral hygiene during treatment
– The aligner trays are fully customizable
– There is no need for food restrictions because you take out the aligners to eat
– Your treatment is virtually invisible
– The aligners are designed to be smooth and comfortable
– You don’t need to worry about the stigma of having a “metal mouth”
– It’s easier to clean straight teeth than crooked teeth
– You can enjoy healthier teeth and gums

Compared to traditional braces:

– Your mouth can be irritated by poking wires
– Braces use visible brackets and wires that give you a “metal mouth”
– They can be less expensive than Invisalign
– You will have some food restrictions
– Braces are harder to brush and floss well
– If not cared for, braces can break while being worn
