What’s more difficult than having metal braces wrap around your teeth during your already awkward puberty stage? How about having a mouth full of metal when you’ve scored an interview for your dream job? If first impressions are essential for success in your personal or professional life then don’t let crooked teeth or braces hinder you.

More and more adults are looking to straighten their teeth, especially if they are in a field that requires public speaking. Some are even opting to go the traditional route and have metal braces, and this very well may be the best option for someone with vertically misaligned or twisted teeth. However, if you had the option to straighten your teeth discreetly, without all the bling so to speak, why wouldn’t you?

Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth on your terms. You wear a series of custom made retainers that you replace about every two weeks. The retainers gently move your teeth into alignment without the mouth sores and other complications traditional braces cause. They are clear so you can wear them at any time without unwanted attention and removable so you can take them out before a date or interview. Unlike with traditional braces, you also don’t have diet restrictions, but we do recommend taking them out before drinking coffee or other dark liquids or during smoke breaks as this could stain the retainer.

Top five reason adults are choosing Invisalign:

  1. Aesthetically more pleasing – No visible metal
  2. More convenient – Remove them when you need to make an impression
  3. Comfortable – Avoid mouth sores and other discomforts associated with traditional braces
  4. No added time – Your crooked teeth could be straight in less than a year
  5. Minimal additional costs – only about $500 more a year for the added benefits

If you are an adult interested in straightening your teeth discreetly ask your dentist or orthodontist if Invisalign is right for you. There are some limitation and it is not right for everyone, but if it is right for you, why would you choose anything else?
