You’re a busy adult. You have a family to raise and a career to care for. If you’re fortunate, you even get to take out some time for yourself once in a while. You might think there is no room in your schedule to straighten out your teeth — after all, all the dentist appointments and the extra oral hygiene requirements of traditional braces can suck hours out of your life. Plus, you don’t want to be a “metal mouth.” There is a better way! Invisalign in La Plata is the perfect way for patients of almost any age to gain a straighter, healthier smile without sacrificing a ton of time or suffering from the embarrassment of old-fashioned braces.
No Social Stigma
Metal braces are traditionally the realm of teens and tweens, and they can make adults feel immature and self-conscious. But since Invisalign aligners are clear, there is no need to worry that others will gawk at them.
Gabby Reece, a well-known presence in the sports world, even used Invisalign to take her smile to the next level. She and her husband decided to get the treatment at the same time as their daughter. Yes, despite their busy, active lifestyle, they still found it easy to straighten their smiles.
The Convenience of Removable Aligners
With traditional braces, it can take up to half an hour each night to adequately clean your teeth. Navigating around all those brackets and wires is both tedious and challenging. But because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can simply take them out, brush and floss as normal, and replace the aligners. It’s easy and quick!
The removable nature of Invisalign also saves you time in that you won’t have to put a ton of effort into planning your meals or cutting up your food. You just have to take out your aligner while you eat, rinse it off, and put it back in your mouth.
Quick Checkups With Your Dentist
After your dentist designs your treatment and provides you with your aligners, you won’t have to return to the dental office for appointment after appointment. In fact, depending on your treatment plan, you’ll just have to go back once every six to 12 weeks or so. If everything is going well with your teeth-straightening process, each appointment shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes.
Fast Overall Treatment Time
Adults and teenagers alike love the fact that Invisalign offers a faster average overall treatment time than traditional braces. While the length of the process varies from person to person, you might be able to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted in just 12 months or so!
Invisalign is a time-saving way to straighten teeth that won’t cause you any embarrassment. If you would like to put your teeth in their proper places, these remarkable clear braces might be perfect for you!
