When you’re an adult with a crooked or uneven smile, it’s hard to decide what route you should take in order to correct that problem. Braces are for teenagers, right? Especially if you work in a very professional setting, adult braces can make you feel incredibly self-conscious.

That’s where Invisalign can help. It’s a modern method used to straighten your teeth that is nearly impossible to see. Let’s take a look at the benefits of Invisalign.

How does it work?

Invisalign is a simple process. The doctors here at Merrill Ranch Family Dental Center will take some molds of your teeth and create a series of clear, comfortable plastic retainers that you’ll wear all day (except when eating/brushing/flossing). You simply wear the retainers for the prescribed amount of time and you’ll end up with a perfect smile.

It’s discreet

One of the best parts about Invisalign, especially for adults, is the fact that it enables you to straighten teeth without big metal brackets and wires. In fact, most people won’t even notice the Invisalign aligners sitting on your teeth.

It works as well as braces

Invisalign works as well as braces to establish a permanent, lasting smile. All you have to do it pop in a new retainer every two weeks for the duration of your treatment, and your teeth will end up exactly where they’re supposed to be.

At the end of the day, your candidacy for Invisalign will depend on the amount of orthodontic work you need done. If you’re interested in learning more, or think you’re a great candidate for Invisalign, schedule a consultation appoint with us today.
