If you’re an adult with crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, you may be wondering if Invisalign in Chandler, AZ would benefit you. The truth is that you will benefit from clear braces. Modern advancements in teeth straightening means that braces aren’t just for children, and you don’t have to walk around with a mouth full of silver colored metal. Instead, you can choose clear braces or clear aligners to help straighten your teeth without calling unwanted attention to your mouth.
Benefits of Clear Braces and Aligners
Invisible braces come in two forms. You can get clear braces, which involves having clear brackets attached to your teeth with just the metal wire being noticeable, or you can choose clear aligners, which are invisible to everyone around you.
Your Teeth Straightening Treatments Won’t be Nearly as Noticeable
Due to the advancements in dental care and at-home oral hygiene products, adults are keeping their teeth longer. This means that if you didn’t get your teeth straightened as a teenager, you can take advantage of the treatments right now. When you choose clear braces or clear teeth aligning trays, your teeth straightening treatment won’t be as noticeable, and you won’t feel as self-conscious about straightening your teeth as an adult. Clear braces involve affixing clear brackets to your teeth and connecting them with a metal wire. This means that the people around you won’t as readily notice your braces, or they may think you’ve already undergone teeth straightening and are simply wearing a retainer.
If you choose clear aligner trays, like those offered by Invisalign, your teeth straightening treatments will be nearly invisible, and you won’t have to change your diet or alter your at-home oral hygiene routine. You’ll just have to remember to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, and if you have an important social gathering or job interview, you can remove your aligning tray temporarily.
You’ll Spend Less Time at Our Dental Office
If you choose clear aligners as your teeth straightening method, you’ll spend less time in our dental office and your teeth straightening treatment will take about 50 percent less time than treatment with traditional braces. This is because you’ll receive multiple aligners at each appointment and wear each aligning tray for about two weeks before switching to the next tray. As a result, you’ll only need to visit our dentist every six to eight weeks.
