Invisalign for Adults
As an adult, wearing traditional metal braces does not feel like an option due to the social stigma associating them with kids and teens. Although metal braces can achieve results, they are unsightly, treatment takes longer and are painful to wear as well as be tedious to clean. At studioSMILE Orthodontics in Overland Park, KS, we want patients of all ages to have a smile they are proud to show off. We offer Invisalign as the first choice for orthodontic treatment for adults because not only are they comfortable, but they are virtually invisible as well as convenient to live your life normally. Adults deserve straight teeth as much as any teen and should not avoid treatment just because of their age. Dr. Kelly has treated patients into their 80’s. If straight, healthy teeth are important to you she would like you to know that it is never too late for your orthodontics.
Braces for Adults
A lot of adults choose traditional metal braces as their orthodontic option because have been told by another orthodontist that they are not candidates for Invisalign. Unfortunately, this leads a lot of adults to a feeling of regret after they begin traditional metal braces because of the sheer discomfort, stares and complete change of routine with eating. With Invisalign, not only will your treatment be invisible, but it will easily accommodate your life. Simply wear them all day everyday as instructed by Dr. Kelly and remove them for eating, drinking, and cleaning your teeth and you will have a straighter smile in as little as 6 months. You will not feel self-conscious about your aligners during your treatment or be constantly checking your braces for food particles. Your treatment will feel almost like your aligners are not even there. Hundreds of our patients will attest to how normal they become.
Don’t Adjust Your Lifestyle
Invisalign makes it easy to maintain your lifestyle as well as enjoy all foods. With traditional braces, certain foods must be avoided otherwise you would find them lurking in the deepest corners of your brackets and wires. Invisalign comes out when you need it to whether for eating, drinking or for special events. Your aligners need to be worn for 22 hours a day, leaving you with ample time to leave them out at your discretion. The gradual movement will prevent you from experiencing any severe pain, unlike with metal braces. You will also not experience sores or cuts in your mouth, gums, or cheeks like you would with metal braces. The Invisalign aligners are custom designed by Dr. Kelly to fit your mouth to pristine detail, leaving you feel like you are not wearing anything on your teeth.
Maintain Oral Hygiene
One of the most important aspects of Invisalign is the ability to maintain optimal dental health. You will have your aligners removed while you brush and floss your teeth, allowing for you to clean to perfection. This also helps your general dentist and hygienist out during your regular cleanings. You can expect to maintain a healthy mouth during the entirety of your treatment. You will also avoid any pesky stains that would normally happen with regular braces.
