Invisalign for Adults

Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton, Portsmouth - VA

Schedule A

Most of us grew up thinking that our teen years were the time to get teeth straightened. There were many people around with braces, and for those of us who couldn’t have our teeth straightened were just out of luck. But that’s simply not true. Invisalign is a treatment that helps adults get straighter teeth without all the teenage angst that comes with braces.

This page outlines some of the basic advantages of Invisalign for adults, but it cannot tell you whether Invisalign is right for you. For personal recommendations, please call 877-206-3444 or email Michael P. Folck, DDS today to schedule a consultation.

Look Finished, but Keep Improving

Teenagers get a certain flexibility to wear braces because they are expected to be a “work in progress.” They are growing, changing, and trying to figure life out, and braces can be seen as just part of the process, but when you’re adult, you’re supposed to have put that behind you. You’re supposed to be professional, mature, and, above all, capable. When people see your braces, it can undermine that impression. Worse, it can make you feel self-conscious and focus on what you think people are thinking, rather than on your responsibilities.

Invisalign, on the other hand, helps you to maintain a finished, professional look even as you improve your smile. You never have to bow out of a business lunch because you can’t eat what’s on the menu, or worry about what might be stuck in your braces. For a really important face-to-face or photo session, you can take your aligners out to avoid even the subtlest hint you’re getting your teeth straightened.

A Convenient Choice

Your life is busy. You know you have little extra time for anything, let alone the hassle of braces. With braces, you have to go to the dentist every time you need a tightening, but Invisalign visits can be spaced out to about once every six weeks.

And Invisalign requires no special cleaning routine. You already know how hard it is to get yourself to brush for the full two minutes and floss every night—cleaning braces takes much longer and even then you’re likely to suffer reduced hygiene, which means increased tooth stains and potential for periodontal disease.

Invisalign is a great orthodontic option for many adults.
