Invisalign For Adults
Invisalign is also for adults, and Dr. Carol Jin, DDS, in San Ramon can help you get the smile you want at any age. If the idea of braces makes you think of an awkward teenager with a metallic smile, think again. More and more adults are getting braces to improve the look of their smile. Invisalign is essentially an invisible teeth alignment system that gently straightens teeth using a clear removable aligner.
Benefits of Invisalign for Adults
Adult braces have to accommodate an often busy and serious lifestyle and should offer the wearer the freedom to be confident about their appearance, even when wearing braces. Some of the benefits of Invisalign braces are:
- Clear aligners are virtually imperceptible
- Aligners are removable so you can eat anything
- Easier to maintain oral hygiene
- No uncomfortable brackets or wires to break
- Treatment can take less time than metal braces
Using Invisalign as an adult for teeth straightening allows you to continue with assurance in your job or personal obligations.
How Invisalign Works
Dr. Jin, as your Invisalign dentist, employs a state-of-the-art, highly accurate method of digitally scanning the teeth from which the aligning tray is created. Every couple of weeks a new tray will be made to gently move the teeth into the anticipated position. Each successive tray is calculated with the end result in mind.
Once the teeth have achieved the desired outcome, a clear retainer is then used for a period of time to help the teeth maintain their place until they are secure and solid. The retainer has the same indiscernible look as the clear braces.
