Have you been told that you need adult braces? Or that adult braces were the only way to correct certain orthodontic flaws with your smile?
You want to fix your smile, so you’ve resigned yourself to living with traditional adult braces.You’ve resigned yourself to undergoing a sometimes painful and always inconvenient treatment for up to two years at a time. Because what choice do you have?
If any of those things are the case, we want to tell you more about Invisalign from Newman Springs Dental Care in Lincroft, NJ. Invisalign is a comfortable and clear alternative to traditional adult braces which can correct many of the same issues as traditional adult braces. So in today’s post, we’re going to look at some of the reasons our adult patients choose Invisalign over traditional adult braces.
If You Care About Looking Experienced, Traditional Adult Braces Are Not For You
If you’re a busy professional, you know that are advantages that can come from looking experienced. No one wants to put their money, lives, or time in the hands of someone who is inexperienced. Whether it’s fair or not, many people judge your experience by the way you look. That’s why a man with grey or white hairs is said to look distinguished.
But what do you think of when you think of traditional braces? If you’re like most people, the answer is probably teenagers. The rigid brackets and wires of traditional adult braces are like memories straight outta junior high or high school. How do you think traditional adult braces will make you look in your workplace? Inexperienced? Immature?
That’s not something you have to worry about with Invisalign. Invisalign uses clear aligners which are hard to detect in your smile. Many of our adult patients value the discretion offered by Invisalign aligners. When you choose orthodontic treatment with Invisalign, no one but you and your dentist have to know you’re in braces!
If You’re In a Rush to See Results, Traditional Adult Braces Are Not For You
Traditional adult braces are anything but fast. Most patients have to wear traditional adult braces for two years or EVEN LONGER to see the results they want with traditional adult braces. That’s two years of limiting your diet to avoid foods which could damage your braces. That’s two years of dealing with the shame of brace face.
Not only will your overall treatment take a long time with traditional adult braces, you’ll have to spend a long time in appointments and adjustments. Traditional adult braces require periodic and painful adjustments. Not only will these orthodontist appointments be uncomfortable, they’re time-consuming as well. Every appointment is more time you have to spend outside of the office.
Invisalign is a better option for busy people. The average length of treatment with Invisalign is half that of traditional adult braces – about a year. Plus there’s far fewer appoints (and no painful adjustments) to work into your schedule. At each Invisalign appointment you’ll receive several aligners to prevent you from having to constantly come into the office.
If You Value Comfort, Traditional Adult Braces Are Not For You
Traditional adult braces are the furthest thing from comfortable. You not only have to undergo an invasive procedure to have the braces applied, you then have to spend two years living with them!
Traditional adult braces will also limit your diet. You’ll have to avoid foods which could become stuck in the braces or wires. That eliminates chewy candies and stringy cheese from your diet right away. You’ll also have to avoid foods which could damage the braces such as well-cooked steaks or even crusty breads.
Invisalign eliminates all of these discomforts. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, there’s absolutely no restrictions places on your diet. Although your aligner should be worn for around 22 hours of the day, you remove it before you eat or brush your teeth. That means no limits to your your freedom to live, and no major causes of discomfort!
