These days it’s becoming more and more common to see adults at our Edmonton, AB and Spruce Grove, AB offices getting their teeth straightened with Invisalign clear aligners — that is, if you can see them! Treatment with Invisalign is effective and aesthetically pleasing for all ages, but adults have certainly taken to them.
For some it may be to overcome the stigma that “braces are just for kids,” but for others it may be the appearance and potential discomforts of traditional braces. According to the Canadian Association of Orthodontics, from 1994 to 2010 the number of adults 18 and older getting braces increased by 58 percent, from 680,000 to 1.1 million annually. Many of these adults opt for Invisalign because of how discreet they are and flexible to your lifestyle – with the ability to remove them to eat your favourite foods and drinks.
The benefits of getting your teeth into proper alignment are many, and so are the advantages of Invisalign. By following your individual course of Invisalign treatment, you can expect to enjoy the following benefits over traditional braces:
- The total treatment time is more precise with Invisalign since your treatment is modeled immediately, as compared to traditional braces where treatment time is an estimate.
- You’ll need to make fewer trips to our Edmonton, AB or Spruce Grove, AB office since you can change your trays on your own every few weeks or as prescribed.
- Invisalign aligners are clear and practically invisible, so most people won’t even know you’re wearing them!
