Many adults think it’s too late to get orthodontic treatment. But it's not true! As long as you have healthy teeth and gums, you can have yourteeth straightened. Our Delta dentists consider Invisalign to be an ideal treatment option for adults.
Although orthodontic treatment is often associated with children or teenagers, more and more adults are getting their teeth straightened with great results!
This is because there are new lower profile orthodontic treatment options that aren't as obvious as metal braces are.
Adults may be put off by the idea of wearing metal braces because they can’t really be hidden, and can create a somewhat "immature" look that is not necessarily compatible with the professional appearance they want to maintain in the workplace.
Social factors also play a role; many adults feel they would be self-conscious wearing traditional braces in social settings.
At the end of the day, straight teeth are very important for part of your oral health. Orthodontic treatment shouldn't be avoided because of aesthetic concerns. This is where lower profile options for orthodontic treatment, like Invisalign, come in.
Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that straighten teeth just like metal braces do, with an important different. Invislaign aligners are clear, meaning that they are very difficult to see, and indeed almost invisible, when worn.
This is what makes Invisalign a great choice for adults with aesthetic concerns.
