Orthodontic issues are not just a problem for young people. According to statistics, of the roughly four million patients in the United States who undergo orthodontic treatment every year, at least a quarter of them are adults. However, adults and teenagers can be understandably reluctant to get braces for both personal and professional reasons. Luckily, Invisalign clear aligner trays help solve this problem by offering a discreet and less invasive alternative to braces. The dentists at Abington Dental Arts offer orthodontic dentistry services for children and adults in Clarks Summit, PA.
Get a Straighter Smile with Invisalign
Invisalign can correct common bite problems like open bite, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and overcrowding. Like braces, the trays gradually shift the teeth into the correct alignment over time, but that is pretty much where the similarities end. Invisalign is probably most well known for the fact that the trays are clear, and therefore virtually invisible. However, there are also many additional benefits that make Invisalign a good choice!
Keep up your oral hygiene routine and continue to enjoy the foods you love
With Invisalign, you can continue to eat and drink the foods you love without the same restrictions that many people experience with traditional braces. Not only does Invisalign skip the wires and brackets, but the trays are removable for up to two hours every day so that you can continue to brush and floss and enjoy your normal diet unrestricted.
The treatment period is also generally shorter with Invisalign than with braces, depending on the situation. If you are looking for a way to straighten your teeth but do not want to get metallic braces, are a teenager or adult, and can commit to wearing the trays as instructed and keeping up with follow up dentist appointments, Invisalign may be right for you!
