Many adults wish they had a straighter smile but don’t like the prospect of wearing metal brackets and wires on their teeth. Invisalign clear braces are designed specifically for older teens and adults and use comfortable plastic aligners to move your teeth gently into the desired position.
Dr. Amber Schmidt recommends Invisalign for patients in Parker and Aurora who want to correct crooked, crowded, gapped, or overlapped teeth. If you didn’t have braces as a child—or did, but your teeth have relapsed into a crooked position—Invisalign clear aligners will deliver the straight smile you want.
Compared to traditional metal orthodontics, straightening your teeth with Invisalign is convenient and won’t interfere with your lifestyle. Unlike metal braces, crystal-clear plastic aligners are customized to move your teeth gradually into a straight position. Since they conform perfectly to your teeth, most people won’t notice you’re wearing Invisalign.
Your goal should be to wear your Invisalign aligners for 22 hours a day, but you can take a break to brush and floss your teeth or to enjoy your favorite meal. Just remember that the longer you wear your aligners every day, the faster treatment will be finished, and the sooner you’ll see the beautiful results.
