What are you hiding behind your lips? Is it your smile because you are suffering from orthodontic issues? Maybe you’re afraid to show your teeth because they are gapped, crooked, crowded, or otherwise misaligned.

You’ve been living with this mangled smile for years, but you finally want to do something to fix it. So you’ve started to consider adult braces. You love the idea of having a better smile.

But what if you didn’t have to undergo orthodontic treatment with traditional adult braces? Wouldn’t that be preferable? At Sanders Family Dental we offer Invisalign for patients who want a better smile without dealing with the hassle of adult braces.

Why should you choose Invisalign over traditional adult braces? To start, you must consider some of the of these uncomfortable truths about traditional adult braces…

Truth #1: Traditional Adult Braces Come with a Stigma Attached to Them

What memories do you have associated with braces? You probably saw some of your friends wearing them during junior high or high school, so you probably associate braces with those memories or general thoughts about your youthful years.

But what do you think of when you see an adult in braces? Many people would think the adult wearing the braces looked inexperienced or even immature. Is that a stigma you want attached to yourself in your work life or even your life?

With Invisalign it’s no longer a worry. Instead of ugly metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear and removable aligners to gently reposition your teeth. When you’re wearing the Invisalign aligners it’s hard to see them, and they’re even removable for an important social or professional occasion where you want to look your best.

Truth #2: Traditional Adult Braces Can Be an Inefficient Use of Your Time

Two years. That’s no only the length of congressional term, it’s also the average length of treatment for an adult wearing traditional adult braces. That’s two years of walking around with a metal mouth and looking immature and unprofessional.

Plus you have to account for all of the time you’ll be spending in your orthodontist’s office. You’ll have to undergo a lengthy appointment just to have the braces applied, then frequent and painful appointments to have them adjusted, and then a lengthy appointment to have them removed.

Plus meal time can be a lot longer because you have to worry about what you can and can’t eat. Certain hard, chewy, or otherwise delicious foods have to be avoided because they could damage your braces. That can make ordering and eating a meal into a much more time-consuming process.

Invisalign is a much more efficient time investment for working adults or busy parents. Invisalign only takes one year to show incredible results. And because Invisalign aligners are removable, you don’t have to worry about any dietary restrictions. Plus there’s no invasive procedures required to install or remove your aligners, and much fewer appointments to squeeze into your schedule.

Truth #3: Traditional Adult Braces Are an Uncertain Investment

Fixing your smile and undergoing orthodontic treatment is an investment in yourself. Boosting your appearance by fixing your smile can raise your self-esteem. Research studies show that professionals with higher levels of self-esteem earn more money than their peers.

But there’s some uncertainty involved when you invest in traditional adult braces. You don’t know exactly what your smile will look like after you finish treatment and you don’t know exactly how long your treatment will last.

Invisalign is different. Invisalign uses complex and advanced modeling software to plan out every stage of your treatment. So not only will your Invisalign dentist be able to tell you exactly how long your treatment will last, he can also show you a preview of what your smile will look like after you finish your treatment. Best of all, the treatment cost for Invisalign is comparable to that of traditional adult braces!
