Invisalign Adult Clear BracesWhen you already feel self-conscious about your smile, the last thing you may want to do is draw more attention to your teeth by wearing metal braces. Invisalign, offered by your dentist, Dr. Brad Beasley of Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry in Athens, AL, and serving Huntsville, AL, offers a much more discreet straightening option.

How Invisalign Works

Traditional braces use metal wires and brackets to improve the alignment of your teeth. Although metal and ceramic braces are effective, they're not the most attractive straightening option.

Invisalign offers a more subtle way to straighten crooked teeth and correct bite problems. The system uses a series of clear, removable aligner trays custom-made to fit your teeth. Trays exert constant pressure on your teeth, gently improving their alignment.

Benefits of Invisalign treatment

Invisalign offers several important benefits, including:

  • Improved Self-Esteem: Your teeth play an important role in your self-esteem. When they're crooked or protrude too much, you may feel ill at ease in social situations. Straightening your teeth offers an excellent way to boost your self-esteem. In an Invisalign/Harris Poll survey, 92 percent of adults who straightened their teeth reported that straight teeth were an important factor in confidence.
  • Almost No Change to Your Appearance: Invisalign's transparent aligner trays are designed to make your orthodontic treatment practically unnoticeable.
  • No Food Limitations: Traditional brace wearers must avoid hard or sticky foods that can break brace wires or become stuck in them. You won't face any limitations when you choose Invisalign. Before you eat, you'll remove your aligners, then rinse them and put them back in your mouth after you finish eating.
  • Convenience: Your aligners can be removed occasionally if you play sports or are attending a special event. The aligners are designed to be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day.
  • Shorter Treatment Time for Adults: Many adults only need to wear Invisalign aligners for about one year.
  • Easy Oral Hygiene Routine: Brushing and flossing around brace wires can add significant time to your oral hygiene routine if you wear metal and ceramic braces. No changes are needed with Invisalign, as you'll remove the trays before you brush and floss.
