Answers to Questions About Invisalign Treatments for Adults

InvisalignInvisalign is a unique teeth straightening system that uses clear, nearly invisible aligners to gently and gradually move crooked or out of place teeth into the correct alignment. Invisalign is unlike traditional braces in that it provides a less noticeable and attractive solution to imperfect teeth that you will not feel self-conscious wearing. While Invisalign provides a straightening line especially for teens, it is also a popular option for adults who need to look their best on a daily basis. If you are wondering whether or not this straightening option is right for you, the questions and answers our Brooklyn dental office provides in this article may help you decide.

What types of dental imperfections does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign is proven to effectively correct a variety of dental imperfections including but not limited to:

  • Overbite/Deep Bite
  • Crossbite
  • Open Bite
  • Under Bite
  • Spacing/Gaps Between Teeth
  • Overjet
  • Crowding/Overlapping
  • Individual Teeth in Need of Adjustment

Nearly three-fourths of American adults suffer from malocclusion, also known as crooked teeth. Invisalign is clinically proven to treat malocclusion and the other imperfections listed above efficiently and conveniently, resulting in strong, permanent corrections that give you a beautiful, long-lasting smile.

Is Invisalign costly?

Many adults with dental imperfections never received orthodontic treatment due to the financial limitations of their parents. As professional adults, you might now have more finances at your disposal to use for the cosmetic and health improvements that a straightening treatment can provide. In addition to making your smile more aesthetically pleasing, straighter teeth will also help you prevent cavities and gum disease since you will be able to clean your teeth more thoroughly following the treatment. When people hear about the benefits of Invisalign® and how easy and attractive the Invisalign treatment process is, they often assume it is more costly than traditional braces. This is simply not true. Invisalign® typically costs about the same as traditional braces, and in some cases, your dental/orthodontic/health insurance may help cover the costs. When you have waited decades to have your teeth straightened, it is time to treat yourself to a new and improved smile with the help of Invisalign®.

Will Invisalign make mealtimes and presentation times more uncomfortable for me?

With traditional braces comes the stigma of the “metal mouth,” and many people feel self-conscious and ugly wearing them. With Invisalign®, you will never have this problem. Since Invisalign is virtually invisible, very few people will be able to tell you are even wearing your aligners. In addition to the clear benefit of Invisalign®, your aligners will also be removable which will make meal times just like they were before you were undergoing treatment. You don't have to worry about getting food stuck in your braces. Another plus of the removability of Invisalign® is that, with the consent of your dentist or orthodontist, you can remove your aligner for a brief time if you have an important presentation coming up. Invisalign is an incredibly convenient alternative to braces.

These are only a few of the popular questions posed to our Brooklyn dental office daily. We hope we can help you better understand the great straightening treatment we encourage adults to try Invisalign.
