There are many people who work extremely hard to overcome the embarrassing, prepubescent look they had in high school. They polish their overall look with a more mature haircut, upgrade their wardrobe, and even improve their speech—but one thing stands in the way of them feeling more confident about themselves: their crooked teeth.
If this sounds like you, but you can’t bear the thought of getting traditional braces, you’re not alone. Clear aligners have been a go-to for many mature patients, actually standing as the preferred method for adult orthodontics in North Dallas. Learn more about clear aligners and how you may be able to benefit from them in this week’s blog post.
What are adult orthodontics?
As mentioned above, there are many adults who feel less than great about their smile because of overcrowding, crooked, or misaligned teeth. Sometimes, even gaps can hold someone back from loving their teeth.
If you were unable to straighten your teeth in the early development of your smile with traditional braces when you were younger, you might be the perfect candidate for adult orthodontics. You may have even had a great smile growing up, but wisdom teeth development may have shifted your smile. Either way, adult orthodontics can help you regain confidence and optimize your oral health again.
What are clear aligners?
Modern clear aligners provide a straightening system that utilizes a series of smooth, clear plastic aligners to guide your teeth into their correct places. These custom clear aligners apply gentle pressure, pushing your teeth into the right spots.
The straightening treatment is ideal for mature patients because it straightens the smile in much less time than other options, among other benefits.
Why should you consider getting clear aligners?
If you determine that clear aligners are the right way to straighten your smile, you’ll experience much more than improved smile alignment. You can also benefit from clear aligners in these many ways:
- You’ll be expected to visit the dentist much less than with other orthodontic treatments.
- Your clear aligners are removable, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods.
- You’ll be able to effectively clean your teeth and clear aligner system because they are removable.
- You won’t have to experience uncomfortable tightening appointments, poking brackets or wires, or other uncomfortable side effects because the aligners are crafted from clear, smooth, plastic.
