Orthodontic work is often associated with teenagers and young adults, but it is never too late to fix problems with your teeth. Many of our patients of all ages take advantage of the benefits of Invisalign to get the smile they have always wanted. Dr. Weigand often recommends clear aligners to those who do not need significant alterations to their bite or smile because of the following benefits.
When you undergo orthodontics work, you no longer have to worry about its impact on your appearance. These aligners are made to almost disappear on your teeth to make it hardly noticeable that you have anything on your teeth. This is beneficial for teenagers who already stress out about the potential of teasing from the peers, and it is likewise helpful for adults who might be embarrassed to have orthodontic treatment.
Although you must continue to wear your Invisalign appliance to gain the benefit of it, it is removable. This allows you to easily maintain your oral health through brushing and flossing your teeth. You can also remove the appliance for eating, so you do not have to give up any of your favorite foods during the orthodontic treatment. Anyone at any age will appreciate the ability to eat any of their favorite foods without worry. Additionally, you can remove them for an important event, as long as you keep the aligners in your mouth for 20-22 hours each day and follow the instructions of Dr. Weigand.
Another advantage of clear aligners for all ages is that they require less time. Not only do you need to wear them for a shorter treatment period, but you also need fewer appointments with your orthodontist. This makes it easier to fit it around your busy schedule, and that of your family.
