Invisalign: A Game-Changer in Giving Adults a Perfect Smile

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, making a bright, sparkling smile highly desirable. If wearing traditional wire braces doesn’t sound appealing to you, Invisalign® may be the perfect option. 

Invisalign is a nearly invisible, clear aligner system that straightens teeth just as effectively as conventional wire braces, and sometimes faster! This state-of-the-art aligner system is comfortable and adults won’t have to worry about anyone noticing.

Here at Arya Dental, Saeed Mokhayeri, DDS, and Hengameh Safarcherati, DDS are devoted to creating beautiful smiles for the entire family. If you have crooked or crowded teeth, Invisalign is an excellent alternative to traditional wire braces with a host of benefits.

If you’re considering treatment to straighten your teeth, here’s what you should know about Invisalign. 

Invisalign: A nearly invisible way to straighten teeth

Invisalign’s clear design is a major appeal for adults. Conventional wire braces are visible, even at a distance. Adults often have apprehensions about how traditional wire braces will impact their work, social, and personal lives. The Invisalign aligner system will straighten your teeth without drawing attention. 

Convenience that fits your lifestyle

While adolescents hardly fret at the idea of having conventional wire braces, this conventional option can be a hassle for the lifestyle of a busy adult. With traditional wire braces you must avoid certain foods that can get stuck in your braces, such as popcorn, nuts, and candy. 

Fortunately, this isn’t an issue with Invisalign. Adults who choose this option enjoy zero dietary restrictions. That’s because the Invisalign clear aligner system is removable. You wear Invisalign aligners 22 hours a day, giving you time to conveniently remove them when you eat, brush, and floss. 

Comfort you can feel

Discomfort is one of the most common complaints of conventional wire braces. While this traditional option is still effective at straightening teeth, comfort is a small trade off. When you have conventional wire braces you must visit the office every six weeks for an adjustment, which increases discomfort for about two weeks. 

Invisalign aligners are made of a flexible plastic that provides comfort. Since there are no wires, brackets, or sharp edges, Invisalign aligners feel more like a mouthguard. 

Quicker treatment for many

Adults also love Invisalign’s SmartTrack® material, which helps most patients complete treatment more quickly than they could with traditional braces. With traditional wire braces, your treatment might take as long as three years. 

With Invisalign, many patients complete their treatment in 18 months or less. Your individual treatment time will depend on your specific needs.

More than just a cosmetic solution

For most people, the most noticeable change that comes from wearing any orthodontic treatment is the beautiful smile that results. Knowing your smile looks its best means you’ll be making a great impression at work, at school, and anywhere else you go. 

Even though cosmetic enhancement (and improved confidence) is certainly important, Invisalign also benefits your oral health.

Crooked teeth are more difficult to clean efficiently, and your risk of tooth decay increases. Straightening your teeth also improves bite alignment and promotes overall oral health. Misaligned teeth cause problems, such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), which can lead to jaw pain and headaches. 

A brighter smile with Invisalign

Wire braces are no longer the only option for straightening your teeth. If you want a straighter, more brilliant smile, teeth straightening has never been easier or more convenient.
