Discreet Teeth Straightening for Adults: Invisalign

Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth that is both more discreet and more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Hamilton Dental Associates recommends Invisalign treatment for adults looking to correct the alignment of their teeth without the use of metal braces commonly used to treat teenagers.

Visit any junior high school or middle school and you’ll see a large percentage of teens and pre-teens sporting metal braces. Almost every child has at least one friend in the process of beautifying their teeth to enter adulthood. Visit a boardroom, PTA meeting or any adult gathering and those metal braces would be the exception, rather than the norm.

Not everyone had the opportunity to straighten their teeth in their younger years. Some find their teeth have shifted as they’ve gotten older, or perhaps lost the perfect alignment their childhood braces provided. Invisalign can provide adults with a nearly undetectable method of straightening adult teeth by using a custom-made series of clear aligner trays. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth to gradually and gently shift them into place, based on the exact movements your orthodontist plans for you.

There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete.

With Invisalign, you will not experience many of the annoyances of traditional braces – pain, discomfort, mouth sores or injuries caused by the brace wires, tooth decay (from inadequate brushing and flossing), plaque buildup, tooth discoloration, tooth/bracket breakage, or difficulty eating. Using Invisalign, you’ll achieve a great smile with minimal interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth!
