Getting Invisalign As An Adult
Many adults are hesitant to get braces because they believe it is only for children and teenagers. However, more and more adults are getting orthodontic treatment. In fact, at least 20% of all orthodontic patients are adults. With modern technology, orthodontists have more tools in the arsenals to help patients straighten their teeth. At OASECT, one of the most effective treatments that Drs. O’Leary and Hack employ is Invisalign.
Invisalign is significantly faster and more efficient than traditional braces. Invisalign uses a set of transparent, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. This means you can remove the aligners for eating and cleaning without having to endure uncomfortable adjustments. Additionally, because Invisalign is practically undetectable, you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. Because there are no wires or brackets to brush against your gums, Invisalign is more comfortable than braces.

What Makes Invisalign A Good Choice?
For people who wish to straighten their teeth without wearing traditional braces, Invisalign is increasingly becoming a popular option. There are several advantages to using Invisalign, including the fact that they are almost invisible and can be removed for eating, cleaning, and sports. With the Invisalign removable trays, you won’t have to worry about following a special, limited diet during your orthodontic treatment.
Another significant advantage is that Invisalign treatment can be completed in less time than braces. Each patient’s treatment period varies based on their circumstances, but most can expect to be finished in one to two years.
Invisalign is also more comfortable to wear, and causes less irritation than brackets. Overall, Invisalign is an excellent choice for those seeking a beautiful, straight smile without the inconvenience of traditional braces.
How To Start The Invisalign Process?
The start of treatment is pretty straightforward. Drs. O’Leary and Hack will first evaluate your teeth and bite, as well as your personal needs and concerns. Following this initial visit, they will take digital images of your teeth and jaw using our iTero scanner. Because our orthodontic practice is fully digital, we can build a more precise imprint of your smile using the iTero scanner instead of typical messy molds.
Using these scans, our staff will design the best-fitting clear aligners to begin the treatment procedure. These clear aligners will be replaced every few weeks to gradually reposition your teeth into their proper position.
