Invisalign® for Adults vs. Traditional Braces

Today it is becoming more common to see adults at our Atlanta and Gwinnett office choosing Invisalign® clear aligners to straighten their smile – that is, if you can see them at all! Invisalign® treatment is effective and aesthetically pleasing for teens and adults alike, but our adult patients have certainly taken to them.

Some adults may choose Invisalign® treatment over traditional braces to overcome the stigma that “braces are just for kids”, while others may be displeased with the appearance and discomfort of traditional braces.  According to the American Association of Orthodontics, the number of adults 18 and older getting braces increased by 58 percent from 1994 to 2010, from 680,000 to over 1 million annually! Many adults are choosing invisalign® today because of how discreet they are, and since they don’t need to avoid any foods or make dietary changes like you would with traditional braces.

Advantages of Invisalign® for Adults

There are many advantages of properly aligned teeth, and so are the benefits of Invisalign®. You can enjoy the following benefits over traditional braces by following your assigned invisalign® treatment plan:

  • Treatment time is more exact with Invisalign®: Since your treatment is modeled by a computer, as compared to traditional metal or ceramic braces where it is an estimate.
  • Invisalign® means fewer trips to our Gwinnett or Atlanta office: You’ll be changing your trays at from the comfort of your own home every few weeks as directed.
  • Since there’s no need to attach brackets to your teeth, this means less risk to the health of your tooth enamel.
  • People won’t even notice that you’re wearing braces because Invisalign® aligners are clear and practically invisalign®!
