Getting a straight, healthy smile no longer means everyone needs to wear metal braces. With Invisalign clear aligners, many orthodontic issues can be corrected without wearing metal on your teeth for two or more years. These clear aligners are discrete, more comfortable and often can get the results you want in less time. At Amber Hills Dental, we have Invisalign aligners for our adult and teen patients as an alternative to metal braces.
More and more adults are choosing to straighten their smiles. Whether they did not have braces as a teen or their teeth shifted as they aged, orthodontic treatments are commonly sought after to improve crooked teeth and other issues. However, the thought of wearing metal braces is not appealing to adults that have professional careers or a busy social life. Invisalign is perfect for adults, with almost invisible aligners that allow them to discretely change their smile. There are fewer visits to the dentist for adjustments; you just need new aligners every few weeks to progressively shift your teeth and bite into place.
Wearing metal braces is a rite of passage that many teens would rather not endure. With Invisalign, many teens do not need to wear traditional braces. They can have the same comfort as adult Invisalign wearers, with aligners that can be removed to eat their favorite foods and to perform their oral hygiene. No restrictions on popcorn or other foods that teens love. Just take the aligners out for meals or snacks – as long as they are worn 20-22 hours per day, they can still get the results needed.
While not everyone is a good candidate for Invisalign, most of the common orthodontic issues can be corrected using these devices. Contact Amber Hills Dental today to find out if you or your teen can benefit from using Invisalign to straighten your smile.
