We find that many adult patients have the same concerns about orthodontic treatment…While braces and other orthodontic treatments are popular among kids and teenagers, the Invisalign treatment provides an option for adults to achieve a straighter smile without having to wear traditional metal braces. Many adult patients are hesitant about receiving orthodontic treatment later in life for a couple of reasons:
Q: Isn’t orthodontic treatment solely for teenagers and younger children?It is a common misconception that orthodontic treatment is solely for children and teenagers; on the contrary, many adults can and have received orthodontic treatment with fantastic results. The only reason that many children and teenagers
Q: Can orthodontic treatment work on my adult teeth?Yes. Orthodontic treatment can work on adult teeth, the only reason that young children and teenagers are urged to have their teeth straightened with orthodontic treatment is that the teeth are more likely to accept the changes that the treatment is instigating on their teeth. Adult teeth are permanent teeth but they are not unsusceptible to orthodontic change. For adults who are considering orthodontic treatment that is easily integrated into their personal and professional lifestyle we suggest Invisalign, the virtually ‘invisible’ and removable orthodontic treatment.
The Invaslign treatment can discretely help you achieve a straighter smile…An Invisalign treatment involves of a series of nearly invisible and removable aligners that you can change every two weeks in place of the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As each aligner is replaced, your teeth can move until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by Dr. Curtis R Couch. We can provide a virtual treatment plan for you to view your Invisalign treatment essentially allowing you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. Dr. Curtis R Couch can develop an individual plan for your teeth and can assess your progress throughout the treatment. Invisalign is flexible and allows you to achieve a straighter smile without interrupting your life, other benefits are:
- Aligners can appear virtually invisible to those around you- which allows you to smile throughout your treatment
- Your aligners can be removed to eat, maintain your regular oral hygiene and for special occasions such as weddings, nights out and photographs
- Invisalign aligners are comfortable with no sharp metal edges to cut and irritate gums
