Orthodontic Solutions Are Not Just For Teens

Welcome back to our oral health blog.

We want you to know that our team at Advanced Dental of Las Cruces, New Mexico is here for all of your family’s dental needs.

Regardless of age, we have solutions just right for you.

In today’s blog post we wanted to talk about a common occurrance:

Adults that come into our office with crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth who could benefit from some orthodontic help but assume incorrectly that braces are only for kids.

Obviously, if you are a grown up with a less than perfect smile, you might be a little self-conscious and even embarrassed about it.

This might even hold you back from reaching your full potential.

But less obvious is the fact that you might be putting yourself at risk for more serious oral health issues if you don’t look into solutions for the situation in your mouth.

That’s why we are excited to tell you that if you have misaligned teeth, or any other such issues, our team has an easy solution for you, adult orthodontics.

Any Age Is The Right Age To Improve Your Smile

What if we told you that you could improve the health and appearance of your smile in a fraction of the time it takes with traditional braces and that no one will ever have to know you are undergoing treatment?

If you are like most of our patients, you’d say, “tell me more!”

So, let us tell you about our secret weapon, Invisalign.

Invisalign begins with a consultation, during which our Advanced Dental team will secure digital impressions of your teeth.

We take these high-tech images and have them made into custom molds designed for the clear Invisalign aligners that will do the work previously done by metal wires and brackets.

Throughout the Invisalign process, you will wear a series of sets of aligners, and each set will be earmarked for a specific teeth shifting assignment to take place during a pre-arranged two week time period.

You will continue to switch out your aligners (for usually 12-18 months) until your treatment comes to fruition.

Ordinarily, adult orthodontic treatment would take up to three years with conventional braces.

But in most instances, Invisalign can cut that timetable in half.

Invisalign Is Convenient And Discreet

The Invisalign system relies on clear trays, so no one at your office will ever have to know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment because they won’t even be able to see the hardware.

However, if you do appreciate snide comments and humiliation, then Invisalign probably isn’t for you.

Just kidding.

But seriously, it gets better.

Invisalign aligners are designed to be removable.

You are allowed to take them out when the food truck comes, or the Paparazzi is camped outside your door.

And to clean them, you just pop them out, rinse them under warm water and then pop them back into place.

We can assure you, this system is effective, convenient, and discreet enough for our busy adult patients who want to improve their health and appearance through orthodontics.

There’s No Reason To Put Off Treatment

We hope you realize that orthodontic treatment is NOT just for kids. There is no better time than the present to turn things around.

We’ll give you something to smile about!
