At San Antonio Orthodontics, we are proud to welcome adult patients in our offices every day who are looking to perfect their smiles! With modern advancements in orthodontic technology and the revolutionary Invisalign system, we are now able to give adults of all ages the ability to straighten their teeth in a discreet way. Our dental team understands that some people need braces to fix crooked teeth later in life, and wearing highly-noticeable metal braces is not always the best option for their professional lifestyles. Fortunately, Invisalign clear braces are a great, hardly noticeable alternative! Below, our dental professionals at San Antonio Orthodontics have created a list of 3 benefits to adult Invisalign, and why they are better than conventional metal braces:
1. Cosmetic Appearance
Traditional metal braces cause the cosmetic appearance of the mouth to look noticeably abnormal. As the unsightly chunks of metal protrude in your mouth and cover the surfaces of your teeth, they allow food particles to get stuck in between the braces and the teeth, sometimes without even noticing. With Invisalign clear aligners, those problems are a thing of the past. Choosing Invisalign lets the adult patients feel more confident in their braces during their day-to-day activities, as they oftentimes aren’t noticeable at all. Made with the 3D printed thermoplastic material, Invisalign braces are virtually invisible.
Metal braces contain wire and protruding metal brackets that can puncture or scratch the insides of your mouth. On the contrary, Invisalign clear aligners are soft and smooth trays made of 3D printed thermoplastics. No sharp edges and no protrusion! With the ability to remove them at any time, an Invisalign wearer can ensure their teeth are kept extra clean while brushing and flossing. As long an Invisalign patient keeps their aligners in 22 hours a day, they will be on track to a perfectly straight smile!
3. Duration Of Treatment
Receiving metal braces can sometimes be a trial and error process with no discernable date that they can be removed. With Invisalign, uncertainty is no more! Beginning with a smile scan, Invisalign patients know exactly what to expect from the moment the scan is complete. Invisalign’s iTeroElement® Scanner provides immediate, comprehensive knowledge of the condition of their mouth, and how long the treatment plan will take to straighten their teeth. Some wearers of traditional metal braces have to keep them glued in for nearly four years for proper straightening to occur. Invisalign treatments can hit their targeted straightening goal in as little as one year!
