Invisalign, a Popular Treatment Among Adults

August 4th, 2017

Having straighter, healthier teeth is something highly coveted by many. Just like a flattering haircut, a beautiful smile gives anyone an extra boost in confidence.

Some people, however, want to enhance their smile but do not know how to go about the procedure. Adults who are busy with their careers may want to achieve the smile they’ve always wanted but are worried about their treatments getting in the way of their busy lifestyles.

However, these days, more adults in the UK are going for invisible braces rather than traditional ones. Here’s why.

What is Invisalign?

More than four million people in the world have better smiles, thanks to Invisalign. Invisalign treatment involves getting a scan of your teeth and a having a series of near-invisible and removable aligners that are bespoke, made for you. As you replace every aligner according to the prescribed time-frame of each one, your teeth are moved gently until they have reached the desired position.

Sara’s Story

Sara Mitra, a 33-year-old jazz singer, was soaring in her career until her teeth stunted her progress. She noticed that her articulation was slowly changing and that her diction was beginning to sound muffled. After giving birth to her daughter Eleanor, swollen gums had also taken a toll on her ability to sing the way she used to.

Aside from the obvious effects it had on her appearance and her career, it was also deeply affecting her self-confidence. She was considering traditional braces to help address her concerns, but she was worried about their visibility while she was onstage. Lingual braces, on the other hand, worried her because of its potential impact on her diction.

When Sara visited a professional, she was told she was an excellent candidate for Invisalign. The practitioners took impressions of her teeth, and she began wearing the aligners. After a year of Invisalign, Sara’s teeth and singing have remarkably improved.

Why More Middle-Aged Adults Opt for Invisalign Treatments

Wearing braces might pose problems regarding oral hygiene or self-confidence. Just like Sara, many adults in the world prefer more discreet and comfortable teeth-straightening treatments that suit their hectic schedules and active lifestyles. From minor issues to more complex cases, Invisalign may be the orthodontic solution that you’ve been looking for.

Invisalign braces are designed to give adults straight teeth without the long wait and wires that come with metal braces. Since the aligners are removable, patients may eat whatever they want and maintain good oral health without using special tools. Invisalign allows patients to brush their teeth as they please whenever they remove their aligners.
