Many adults who have long wanted a straight smile are turning to Invisalign to make it happen. This popular orthodontic alternative allows patients to align their teeth without drawing attention to their treatment, but Invisalign is a perfect fit for adults for more reasons than just that.
1. You know the value of dental work.
Some adults didn’t get the opportunity to wear braces during adolescence. Other adults had this privilege but neglected to wear their retainers afterward and their teeth shifted back out of alignment. No matter what camp you fall into, as an adult now, you understand both time and cost investment of straightening your smile, especially since it’s on your dime.
2. You are ready to put in the time.
Invisalign requires a commitment. The trays will do the heavy lifting of consistently shifting your teeth into alignment, but you must wear the trays 20 to 22 hours a day, clean them, change them as indicated, and see your Fort Lauderdale Invisalign provider every six weeks or so. It’s just one more responsibility to add to your adult life – you will do what needs to be done to get a good result.
3. You want a healthier smile.
Straight teeth are healthier teeth. When teeth are in alignment, they’re easier to floss and brush and get in between them to clear out food particles and bacteria. Crooked teeth make tooth decay far more likely, and you certainly don’t have any desire to deal with tooth-colored fillings as an adult.
4. You want to do something for yourself.
If you have raised a family, or you’re still in the throes of it, there is no better time than the present to take care of yourself. It’s time to put your own oral health needs at the top of the list and finally get the straight teeth you’ve always wanted. Invisalign may be just the self-care you need to feel better about yourself.
5. A better smile will help your career.
A good smile can make all the difference when it comes to winning a case, landing a client, making a sale, or making a great first impression. You’ll feel better about your job performance when you have a straight smile, and you know Invisalign won’t get in the way of your daily life because it’s the best way to improve your smile discreetly while you continue to do your job.
6. It’s time to fix what’s broken.
Some people choose Invisalign as their cosmetic dentistry treatment not only to straighten their teeth but to correct other oral health problems that they’re tired of living with, like teeth grinding and clenching, TMJ problems, pain and discomfort, and food getting stuck in the same teeth. Many adults also choose to follow-up their Invisalign treatment with a professional teeth whitening treatment for a megawatt smile makeover.
