Teens are not the only ones who have concerns about their smile — a good number of adults do as well. For many adults, the idea of straightening the teeth makes them feel apprehensive because they are worried about how others will perceive them wearing metal braces. Adult Invisalign could be the answer, and the treatment is available at Smile Envy Dental Group for patients in Atlanta, Smyrna, Vinings, and other nearby cities.
What is Adult Invisalign®?
Adult Invisalign is a method of straightening adult teeth by using a set of clear aligners. The aligners somewhat resemble the mouthpieces used in sports and are custom designed to fit each patient’s mouth. They gently move teeth into their correct position but do not require additional brackets or braces in order to do so.
Benefits of Adult Invisalign
Adults especially can benefit from Invisalign because this method of straightening the teeth is very inconspicuous. As such, it is ideal for anyone who is concerned with presenting a professional appearance on the job. Adults who are struggling to manage work and family responsibilities will appreciate the fact that Invisalign is very convenient and requires fewer visits to an orthodontist than traditional braces.
What is the Procedure for Adult Invisalign?
Adult Invisalign is performed in the same manner as for younger patients. Molds of the teeth are made and sent to a lab that makes the aligners. Patients will wear a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until treatment is completed.
Preparing for Adult Invisalign
Your teeth and gums must be healthy before beginning Invisalign treatment. For this reason, we advise our patients to have a complete dental cleaning and take care of any underlying issues first.
Recovery from Adult Invisalign
No recovery whatsoever is needed after Invisalign treatment is complete — simply stop wearing your aligners and enjoy your beautiful smile.
How much Does Adult Invisalign Cost?
The cost of Invisalign depends on the degree of straightening that is required. To make Invisalign as affordable as possible, we offer financing through CareCredit. Cash, personal checks, and major credit cards are also accepted in our office.
Is Adult Invisalign Right for Me?
If you are suffering from gum disease because your teeth are not aligned properly, you should consider Invisalign. Even if your gums are healthy, you could still benefit if you desire a more vibrant, healthy smile.
