Love Your Smile With Clear Aligners For Adults
Choosing to undergo orthodontic treatment as an adult is becoming a more common occurrence. With new innovative technology available today, adults can correct oral health issues that once were difficult to correct without traditional metal braces. As you manage your busy schedule, our team of orthodontists can offer you some treatment options that work for your lifestyle. They are committed to helping you achieve a better quality of life and the beautiful smile you deserve.
Am I A Candidate For Clear Aligners?
If you are considering clear aligners to straighten your teeth, you may be wondering if you are a good candidate for this treatment. In general, clear aligners are an effective way to correct mild to moderate crowding or spacing issues. However, they may not be ideal for more severe cases of misalignment. Clear aligners also require a high level of commitment from the patient. In order to achieve the best results, aligners must be worn for at least 20-22 hours each day. If you are not willing to make this commitment, clear aligners may not be the right choice for you. Ultimately, the best way to determine if clear aligners are right for you is to consult with our team of orthodontists.
Choices Of Clear Aligners
There are two different types of clear aligners available in our office, each with its own advantages. Invisalign is one of the most popular brands and uses clear plastic aligners to gradually shift teeth into place. Spark Clear Aligners are another option and use an innovative laser-etching process to create a more comfortable and effective fit. Ultimately, the best clear aligner for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. However, all clear aligners are significantly less noticeable than metal braces, making them a good choice for adults who want to discreetly straighten their teeth.
Why Adults Are Turning To Clear Aligners
In the past, metal braces were the only option available for adults who wanted to straighten their teeth. However, today there is a much more discreet way to achieve a straighter smile: clear aligners. Clear aligners are made of a clear plastic material that is virtually invisible when worn. They are also removable, so you can take them out for eating and drinking and brush and floss your teeth with ease. And because they are custom-made to fit your mouth, they are more comfortable to wear than metal braces. Clear aligners are also a great option for adults who have busy schedules, as they require fewer trips to the orthodontist than traditional braces. If you’re looking for a more discreet way to straighten your teeth, clear aligners may be the right choice for you.
According to the American Association of Orthodontists, one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 18. In recent years, there has been a boom in the number of adults seeking treatment with clear aligners. There are several reasons why this trend is on the rise. First, clear aligners are much less noticeable than metal braces, making them a popular choice for adults who are concerned about their appearance. Second, clear aligners can be removed for eating and cleaning, which makes them more comfortable and convenient than traditional braces. Finally, many adults appreciate the fact that clear aligners can be completed in a shorter time frame than metal braces. As a result of these factors, it is not surprising that adults are increasingly choosing clear aligners over traditional braces.
