Invisalign for Adults
This page is for adults who are interested in Invisalign. If you're a teenager or parent of a teen who could benefit from Invisalign treatment, visit our Invisalign Teen page here.
Whoever said orthodontic treatment is “just for kids” is, well...wrong!
We provide orthodontic solutions for adults. The problem most adults face, however, is that they don’t want traditional metal braces, as many people consider metal braces as an adult less than ideal.
So what’s the solution? How can you get the straight teeth you want without having to rely on traditional braces treatment?
Invisalign for Adults is the Answer (But What is It)?
Invisalign treatment involves using a custom-crafted series of aligners to gradually align your teeth perfectly without metal wires or brackets. These aligners are clear and therefore are not nearly as noticeable as regular braces (which is great for adults).
In other words, as an adult, you get all of the benefits of traditional braces (if you only have mild to moderate teeth crowding) without having to actually wear metal braces.
How does Invisalign Work?
While our orthodontist can explain it in more detail, here is how the process works:
You’ll have your initial consultation to assess your needs and to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign.
If you are a candidate, we will take an impression of your teeth that will be used to form your first set of Invisalign aligners.
You’ll receive a new set of aligners every 2-4 weeks (based on your treatment projection). These series of aligners will work gradually over a period of 12-24 months (for most patients) to straighten your teeth.
Note: Patient compliance is extremely important with any orthodontic procedure and Invisalign is no different.
We encourage you to wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day, but it’s important to note that they are removable if you have a wedding, reunion, job interview, or other special occasion where you would prefer not to wear them.
What Does it Cost?
Many patients are actually shocked at just how affordable Invisalign treatment actually is, and with the financing options available through our office, it often boils down to a manageable monthly payment.
We want to work with you to achieve the straight teeth and smile you’ve always wanted! There’s no better time to fix your smile than when your child has braces, too.
What’s Next? Schedule Your Invisalign Consult When You Bring Your Child!
When adults choose Invisalign they can go on the “orthodontic journey” day in and day out with his/her child. It’s a bonding process between parent and child; something you or your child will never forget.
We encourage you to contact our office today to schedule your Invisalign consultation and/or your child’s orthodontic appointment.
