INVISALIGN: An In-Office Solution For Adults Seeking Straighter Teeth

Chances are you have heard of the popular clear aligners used to straighten teeth called Invisalign. Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that straighten your teeth without brackets, wires, and the restrictions that often come with metal braces. These clear aligners are made of a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack® created exclusively for Invisalign. They are thin, clear, and fit snugly over your teeth, making them virtually invisible.

More and more adults are seeking Invisalign as a treatment option to straighten their teeth. Some of them had metal braces as a child and their teeth have shifted over the years. Others may have never had the opportunity to have orthodontic treatment, but seek the confidence and attraction of straight teeth. Invisalign treatment offers multiple benefits making it the ideal treatment for adult patients. We are proud to offer Invisalign at the dental offices of Margaret Szott DDS.

Why do adult patients prefer Invisalign as a treatment plan for straighter teeth?

They are discreet. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible! Most often, people do not even notice them. This is a significant benefit for most adults who often associate braces with adolescence and want to maintain a mature and professional image. The subtle, often undetected, look of Invisalign is a great solution for adults.

They are convenient. Invisalign offers patients the opportunity to remove the aligners and eat their favorite foods, many often deemed “off limits” to patients with traditional metal braces. This also includes the convenience of cleaning your teeth and aligners. Simply pop them out to brush and floss your teeth without the frustration of trying to clean around metal brackets.

They take less of your time. Invisalign patients require less in-office appointments, an important factor for many working adults who don’t want to take extra time off for an orthodontic appointment. In addition to saving you time in the office, Invisalign patients don’t have to worry about scheduling extra appointments for issues with metal braces like a broken bracket. While each treatment plan will vary, patients can expect to visually see results of their Invisalign treatment within a few weeks and some refinement cases may only require treatment for a few months.

And perhaps one of our favorite benefits of Invisalign treatment, they can be done in the trusted convenience of our office. As your dental provider, we know your dental history, your insurance options, and you as a person. We know that many of our adult patients are seeking options to straighten their teeth, but don’t want the hassle of having to be referred to an orthodontist.

Whether you had braces in the past and you are looking for a refinement or you’ve never had any orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth, we invite you to call Margaret Szott DDS at 336-286-9897 to learn more about Invisalign for adults and schedule a consultation.
