INVISALIGN BRACES ARE A GREAT OPTION FOR ADULTS
While Invisalign does have a line for younger patients called Invisalign Teen®, the original Invisalign® braces were made with adults in mind. One fifth of orthodontic patients are over age eighteen, and Invisalign® braces are the perfect option for this demographic because so many adults have careers that require them to look their best at all times. Only 35 percent of adults have well-aligned front teeth which leave 65 percent who could be using Invisalign® braces to perfect their smiles. Unfortunately, many adults do not realize the benefits and simplicity of the Invisalign® braces experience. With over a 96 percent satisfaction rate and an average of a one-year treatment period, it is hard to beat the odds of you loving your new smile after wearing Invisalign® braces for such a short time.
INVISALIGN® BRACES COST ABOUT AS MUCH AS TRADITIONAL BRACES, BUT HAVE MANY MORE BENEFITS
In the United States, the average cost of traditional braces treatment is just short of $6000. Invisalign braces cost about $6,000 on average as well. While the costs are similar, Invisalign® braces offer many more benefits like:
- Healthier gums and teeth due to easier access for thorough brushing and flossing
- Convenient removability when necessary for cleaning, eating, and special occasions
- Invisibility so few people will know you are wearing them
- Fewer appointments to keep up with since adjustments won’t be necessary
- No irritation of soft oral tissues resulting in zero mouth sores or no need for orthodontic wax
- You’ll have a more attractive appearance during treatment
EXTRA BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN® BRACES
Invisalign braces straighten teeth efficiently. You will receive a new set of Invisalign® aligners every two weeks or so that will catalyze the next step in your straightening treatment. You will only have to visit with your orthodontist a few times during treatment so your progress can be monitored, and you will have more time to work and enjoy free time. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign® braces can help prevent gum disease, cavities, speech impediments, and even pressure on your jaws. If you have your teeth straightened now, you can avoid unnecessary future financial burdens from dental problems.
