Adult Orthodontics and the Innovations of Invisalign

Orthodontist patients all over the country are discovering that braces aren’t just for children or teens anymore. More adults than ever are choosing to improve their smiles because of the innovations of Invisalign. It’s the fastest growing trend in adult orthodontics and it produces amazing results! Adults prefer Invisalign over traditional braces, because it’s the orthodontic treatment that best complements their demanding lifestyles.

Invisalign is an alternative brace option that straightens teeth without the noticeable appearance of traditional braces.


Invisalign instead uses clear, removable trays that are virtually invisible. There are no brackets or wires that make adults feel self-conscious about their appearance. Adults are able to improve their smiles without anyone noticing their treatment. The results after Invisalign treatment are just as great as those of regular braces.

Another reason why adult orthodontics are embracing Invisalign, is because of the comfort factor. The idea of having brackets and wires in their mouths is not an appealing option for most adults. However, the smooth, sleek and sophisticated application of Invisalign uses BPA-free plastic that is designed for comfort. It’s a far less intrusive treatment than traditional braces, and it keeps your mouth and gums free from aches and pains.

Invisalign treatments are also more convenient than traditional braces. Adults lead busy professional and personal lives, and they need an orthodontic treatment that fits into their hectic schedules. There is less of a time commitment with Invisalign, which makes them extremely popular for adult orthodontics. There are far fewer trips to the orthodontist, since patients do not have as many emergencies with broken brackets or poking wires that need clipped. Invisalign can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth, which means your normal daily routine will remain virtually unchanged. The removable trays are extremely easy to clean, and you can even remove them for special social occasions where they might cramp your style.
