It’s Not Too Late for Braces
As an adult, you may think that braces aren’t for you. Even if you get braces, they get in the way of your appearance and your life. But Invisalign can make orthodontic treatment convenient for you.
Braces for adults are becoming more common — the American Association of Orthodontists estimates that adults make up about 27 percent of all orthodontic patients. Invisalign can make you feel proud of your smile, a feeling you don’t want to miss.
Should You Get Invisalign?
Invisalign is great for many people, but not all cases can be treated with these clear braces. Dr. Assi will be able to tell you if your smile can be corrected with Invisalign.
Invisalign aligners are great for mild to moderate alignment issues, gaps between teeth, and to correct an overbite.
One of the most common uses of Invisalign for adults is to treat orthodontic relapse. If you previously had braces but your teeth have since shifted out of position, clear braces are ideal for correcting them again.
What Invisalign Can Do for You
Invisalign treatment doesn’t take very long — though any orthodontic treatment takes less time in a younger and more malleable mouth, treatment with clear aligners can often be completed in 12 months. That’s about half the time it would take with metal braces.
The aligners you’ll wear are nearly invisible, so you don’t have to worry about the way you look in pictures or while at work. You also won’t have to think about restricting what you can eat either because Invisalign can be removed to eat.
The main Invisalign treatment method is designed for adults. In fact, Invisalign features a separate line of aligners for teenagers called Invisalign Teen that cater to a growing mouth’s needs.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I too old for Invisalign?
Many people believe braces are only for teenagers, but that’s not true. There is no upper age limit for Invisalign, so it’s not too late for you.
Will treatment take longer as an adult?
Though orthodontic treatment is often faster in younger patients, Invisalign only takes on average 12 months for adult patients.
Does insurance cover Invisalign treatment?
Most dental insurance plans cover part of the cost of treatment. Consult with your insurance provider to learn the details of your plan.
