You don't need to be a kid to straighten your teeth! Our Surrey and North Delta dentists can use Invisalign orthodontic aligners to straighten the smiles of busy adults, discretely and without the hassle of traditional metal braces.
Orthodontic Treatment for Adults
Once upon a time it was unusual for adults to undergo orthodontic treatment to straighten their smile. Many adults believed that braces were only for children and teenagers.
Adults frequently admit that they would have felt too self-conscious to straighten their teeth with traditional metal braces, believing that braces just aren't compatible with their professional image.
But now, thanks in part to Invisalign, more and more adults are choosing to correct orthodontic issues in order to improve the appearance and function of their smile.
How Invisalign Works to Straighten Adult Smiles
Now adults can straighten their teeth without worrying what others will think. Invisalign's clear custom aligners offer adults a discrete way to straighten their smiles.
Invisalign aligners are made from SmartTrack, a thin clear plastic which makes them both effective and almost completely invisible when worn.
Treatment consists of a series of clear orthodontic aligners. Throughout the treatment period, patients wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks before switching to the next set of aligners in their series.
Each aligner in the series is designed to put pressure on specific, targeted teeth, gradually moving each tooth into it's corrected position.
Invisalign Aligners for Adults Are Removable
With Invisalign there are no dietary restrictions! The clear custom aligners are removable. That means adults can straighten their teeth and still enjoy all of the foods they love, without worrying about damaging their braces.
Whether you're at an important business lunch or at the movies for date night, there's no need to worry about what you can eat. Simply remove your aligners and store them in their case whenever you are about to eat. Once you're done, just step away to clean your teeth and return your aligners to your mouth.
