Invisalign®: An Ideal Solution for Adults Needing Braces

Braces are most commonly used on tweens and teens to correct tooth alignment and bite issues, but many adults need orthodontic correction, too. Adults needing corrective dentistry are not limited to metal brackets and wires. Dr. Fife is a licensed Invisalign provider who can help adults straighten their smiles and improve their oral health without conventional braces.

When Adults Should Consider Bracesalbuquerque adult braces

Braces may be used to correct a number of issues, including:

  • Bite abnormality
    (open bite, closed bit, overbite, underbite)
  • Rotated teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

Adults may consider braces to correct these issues for both cosmetic reasons and for improved dental health. A straighter smile can improve your self-confidence as well as prevent or effectively treat jaw joint issues like TMD, tooth decay and gum disease.

Advantages of Invisalign® over Conventional Braces

Of course adults may consider conventional braces for orthodontic correction, but there are significant advantages to using Invisalign trays, including:

Easy Cleaning
Conventional braces can be difficult to clean around as you must maneuver the brush around each bracket and wire. With Invisalign, you simply take out the tray and brush and floss your teeth normally and then brush the tray to remove food debris and saliva (and the bacteria that cling to them).

Enhanced Comfort
Conventional braces are manually tightened to progressively move teeth into proper alignment. With Invisalign, you gently encourage teeth into proper alignment with a new custom-fit tray approximately every two weeks.

Decreased self-consciousness
Visible braces can make adults self-conscious and hesitant to smile or speak, especially when meeting new people or in professional settings. Invisalign trays are invisible, so you can smile and speak confidently throughout the correction process.

Invisalign trays also provide some protection against unconscious grinding, so those with bruxism can prevent enamel wear and tooth fracture during the daytime, too.

Let Us Help You Perfect Your Smile

Because correcting alignment issues in adults can take longer than it does for tweens and teens, you shouldn’t wait! If you have been considering braces, contact our Rio Rancho dental office to schedule a consultation, and find out if Invisalign is right for your alignment correction.
