Is Invisalign suitable for adults?

Many people associate orthodontic treatment with children and teens, but anyone with healthy teeth and gums can straighten their teeth. Invisalign is an ideal way for adults to straighten their smile, our Delta dentist explains why.


It used to be unusual for adults to be spotted wearing braces. Orthodontic treatment was considered to be something for children and teenagers. Now, thanks in part to Invisalign's clear orthodontic aligners, more adults are choosing to straighten their teeth and improve the appearance and function of their smile.

Many adults would feel self-conscious about turning to traditional metal braces and wires to straighten their teeth. The professional appearance that many adults want to maintain just isn't compatible with traditional metal braces.

Invisalign straightens teeth using a system of almost invisible aligners made from thin clear plastic. Now adults can straighten their teeth without worrying about what others might think of their orthodontic treatment.

Created to discreetly guide the teeth into the desired positions, each clear aligner in the treatment series is custom made for patient's unique smile.

That's not all! There are no diet restrictions with Invisalign treatment. The clear custom aligners are removable. Whether out on a date or at an important business lunch, adults won't need to worry about what to eat. Simply remove your aligners while you enjoy your meal. When you have finished just step away to brush and floss your teeth, rinse the aligners, and pop them back in place.
