Invisalign® For Adults
We are proud to be the Miami Invisalign Preferred Provider!
How would you like to get the beautiful, straight teeth that you’ve always wanted… without braces?
The terms “Metal Mouth,” “Brace Face” and “Tin Grin” may come to mind when you think of orthodontic treatment. The amount of metal that was previously used to straighten teeth discouraged many adults from considering orthodontic treatment in the past. Newer advances, like Invisalign® have made it possible for adults to achieve the straight smile that they’ve been wanting without flashing a grill of metal every time they smile. Better still, advances in orthodontics have allowed treatment to become faster and more comfortable, permitting patients to finish their treatment much more quickly.
Today, over 25% of patients in the United States are adults, but in our practice, the ratio is actually closer to 50:50. Our patients range in age from 7 to 77. Some adults come in seeking treatment for the first time and others want to fix teeth that have shifted over time.
Why Straighten Your Teeth?
- A more confident smile
- Improved self-image
- Straight teeth are easier to keep clean
- Less chance of developing gum disease, bad breath, tooth wear & potential tooth loss
From a health perspective, straight teeth are easier to keep clean than crowded and overlapping teeth-decreasing the chances of developing gum disease, bad breath, tooth wear and potential tooth loss. From a cosmetic point of view, straight teeth can lead to a more confident smile and an improved self-image, which can also lead to improved performance at work or school. Regardless of the reason, all treatment options are presented at the first appointment, and you get to decide what works best for you.
Many adults choose Invisalign because…
- It is more cosmetic – not visible in photos
- No food restrictions – you remove them to eat
- Easier to clean – brushing & flossing is not an issue
- More comfortable – no wires or braces
