The Next Generation of Adult Braces

Full-Mouth Reconstruction 2 - Jacksonville, TX | All Smiles - Dr. Larry Folden

Are you considering adult braces? Maybe you have crooked, gapped, or misaligned teeth which make you embarrassed to smile. So when cameras come out, you either hide your smile with your hand or purse your lips close. Every aspect of your confidence suffers because you hate your smile.

If you’re considering adult braces, then you’ve likely decided to do something to improve your smile. Maybe you’ve even been told that adult braces are your only option for a new smile. If that sounds like you, you need to consider Invisalign!

At All Smiles Jacksonville in Jacksonville, TX, we’re proud to offer Invisalign as an alternative to traditional adult braces. Invisalign can be used to treat many of the same orthodontic issues as adult braces, with far fewer inconveniences. So in today’s post of our dental health blog, we’re going to look at a few reasons why you owe it to yourself to learn more about Invisalign. Let’s get started!

Invisalign is More Discreet Than Traditional Adult Braces

Traditional adult braces stick out like sore thumb. The metal brackets and wires are impossible not to notice. Can you really imagine walking into work or the university with an unsightly fateful of metal? Patients complain that traditional adult braces make them look immature or even inexperienced.

Invisalign was designed to avoid the stigma attached to traditional adult braces. Invisalign uses comfortable and clear aligners to realign your teeth instead of brackets and wires. This means you’re never stuck with a mouthful of metal. In fact, most Invisalign patients tell us that no one even notices they’re in braces.

Invisalign is Faster Than Traditional Adult Braces

Traditional adult braces aren’t just unsightly, they also take forever to be effective. Many adult patients have to wear their braces for two years or longer. That’s two years of painful adjustments and time-consuming orthodontist appointments. Hardly ideal for a working professional!

Advanced Invisalign technology not only works faster than traditional braces, it requires fewer appointments as well. For most adults, comfortable orthodontic treatment with Invisalign takes about a year to be effective. Plus you won’t have to worry about spending hour after hour in an orthodontist office.

Invisalign is More Comfortable Than Traditional Adult Braces

Invisalign uses comfortable, custom-molded aligners to to realign your teeth. These custom aligners are designed to be worn for around 22 hours a day. Once your aligner is in place, you’ll likely forget that you’re even wearing it. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before you graduate onto the next aligner.

Compare that experience with wearing traditional adult braces! Traditional adult braces require rigid brackets to be bonded to the front of your teeth with an invasive procedure. Then wires are tightened around your teeth through the brackets. These wires also have to be tightened periodically. The whole experience can be quite unpleasant. So choose Invisalign instead!

Invisalign Has Fewer Drawbacks Than Traditional Adult Braces

There are a number of hassles when it comes to dealing with traditional adult braces. First, you have to limit your diet in order to avoid any foods that could damage the braces or wires. That means avoiding a well-cooked steak, chewy candy, or even crusty bread that could cause harm to your braces.

Then brushing your teeth takes forever. You have to brush at a certain angle and use a special type of floss to avoid damaging the braces. Then when the brackets are finally removed, you may even notice a stain where the brackets used to be! What a pain!

Because Invisalign aligners are removable, Invisalign braces are free of all of these inconveniences! When it’s time to eat or brush your teeth, you simply remove your aligner. Then you can eat or brush your teeth like normal. That means no dietary restrictions to worry about and no stains left behind on your teeth. You can even take your aligners out if you need to look good for a special occasion.
