Braces have long been known as an orthodontic treatment for teenagers. You can probably think back to Junior High or High School and remember many friends sporting metal brackets and wires. In fact, braces were so common they were often a rite of passage. Today, it is not unusual to see patients of all ages, including adults, in the midst of orthodontic treatment. Advancements in technology have given patients attractive alternatives to traditional braces.
Orthodontic treatment is more convenient than ever. Multiple types of braces allow patients to address alignment issues comfortably and discreetly. Did you know that you can actually straighten your teeth without ever having to wear metal brackets and wires?
At our Rochester Hills practice, we offer patients the advantages of comfort and convenience with invisible braces, otherwise known as Invisalign. If you thought you missed the window of opportunity for straightening your teeth, or simply want to correct alignment without advertising it to the world, Invisalign may the solution for you.
Having confidence in your smile is important at any age, as it is often the first thing people notice about you. The discreet nature of Invisalign allows patients to improve the look of their smiles which can improve confidence and self-esteem.
The Invisalign system uses clear trays that are swapped out every few weeks to gradually shift teeth into proper alignment. The trays are removable and practically invisible. Patients are able to enjoy all of their favorite foods, and clean their teeth properly with these removable aligners. Invisalign can correct a number of alignment issues and bite problems. Treatment time is often less than with traditional braces, and the plastic material is gentle to tooth enamel.
Just because you are no longer a teenager doesn’t mean you are stuck with a mouth full of crooked or improperly-spaced teeth. Orthodontic treatment has come a long way and you now have options that may fit your lifestyle better than conventional braces.
