Three Reasons Adults Choose Invisalign
Invisalign—it’s a popular choice for straightening teeth, and it’s a convenient choice for adults. Why? Well, adults are most likely to ask for invisible braces because they have so many obligations to take care of in their day-to-day lives. Adults must see and talk to dozens of different people in the course of a day, and they know the importance of first impressions. Here are three reasons why an adult would probably want to choose Invisalign braces over standard metal braces.
When it comes to socializing, a smile is like a present that you give to everyone you meet. Being social is a key element of a healthy, fun and interesting life. If you don't feel comfortable smiling, you may find that you feel like the odd person out in social settings. Because Invisalign trays are clear and have a “barely there” appearance, adults often feel comfortable wearing them while socializing. In close encounters, you can take the invisible braces out temporarily.
If you have a job or career that requires you to come in face-to-face contact with a lot of people during your day, you're probably going to want to have Invisalign braces instead of metal ones. If you come to a business meeting wearing metal braces that are most commonly associated with teenagers, it might not make the best impression on your business associates.
More Convenient Appointments
When you have metal braces, you have to come to the dentist's office every month to have your wires adjusted. When you leave the appointment you may be in pain for a couple of days due to the tightening process. But when you have Invisalign the appointments are less frequent and don't require much more than a quick check up and receiving your new Invisalign tray. Getting invisible braces is much more agreeable to an adult’s busy schedule.
