Is Invisalign Acceptable for Adults?

If you’re an adult who would like to straighten your teeth and improve your smile but do not want to go through a few years of wearing metal braces, Invisalign is an excellent and perfectly acceptable way of doing so. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth in a discreet way and achieve the beautiful smile you’ve been longing for. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of Invisalign:

Invisible Aligners

You may be embarrassed about wearing braces as an adult. Due to the fact that Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, you’ll be able to undergo orthodontics treatment everyone knowing.

No Food Restrictions

Traditional metal braces come with dietary limitations. If you opt for Invisalign, you won’t have to deal with any of these limitations since Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating. Foods like apples, celery, carrots, popcorn, and nuts are all allowed with Invisalign.

Easy Brushing & Flossing

The wires, brackets, and bands in metal braces make brushing and flossing quite a challenge. Invisalign aligners can be removed for brushing and flossing making it easy for you to maintain excellent oral health while straightening your teeth.

Minimal Trips to the Orthodontist

You are likely busy with your job and/or children and don’t have time to constantly visit the orthodontist on a regular basis. Unlike metal braces which require biweekly trips to the orthodontist, Invisalign patients only need to come in once every four to six weeks.

Fast Treatment Time

One of the benefits of Invisalign is the fact that it allows teeth to be moved all at once rather than in groups. For this reason, Invisalign treatments can be completed within a year.


Believe it or not, Invisalign is affordable. If you’re interested in this method of straightening teeth, a payment plan can be designed to meet your budget and lifestyle needs.
