When looking at your smile, you may begin to wonder, “Can adults get Invisalign?” The hype around this clear aligner system is certainly intriguing and offers many great benefits, but are they only designed for teenagers or young professionals? The truth is that no matter your age, clear aligners can give you the smile you need and deserve. Read on to learn why undergoing orthodontic treatment with Invisalign as an adult is one of the best decisions you can make.
You Are Likely to Be in a Better Financial Situation
When you consider that a recent college graduate is often facing student loan debt, rent or mortgage payment, and the uphill climb in the professional world, Invisalign isn’t always the most cost-effective option. However, Invisalign for seniors can be an ideal solution simply because you are more likely to be in a better financial situation. While you may still have plenty of debt to pay, you might also have more substantial savings to pull from to pay for this type of treatment. But don’t forget that it is possible to use your dental insurance and/or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to help pay for your new smile.
You Now Understand the Importance of a Healthier, Straighter Smile
As an older adult, your choice to opt for Invisalign treatment likely means that you truly understand the importance of a healthy, straighter smile. At some point, you may have experienced the pitfalls of having crooked teeth or a misaligned bite while trying to advance professionally. Or you simply no longer want to be embarrassed by your smile when trying to give a presentation to your board of directors. Choosing Invisalign allows you to embrace a newer, healthier smile without compromising your daily appearance.
You Are More Committed to the Process
Unlike young patients who might assume that a few hours without their trays won’t be a big deal, you recognize the investment you’re making requires responsibility and commitment to the process. When listening to your dentist talks about the necessity to wear your aligners 20-22 hours each day, there is a much higher chance that you will do what is expected. After all, choosing to forgo wearing the clear aligners will only result in a delay of treatment. Fortunately, more adults who wear Invisalign are ideal candidates because of their dedication to the treatment process and a clearer understanding of the type of results that are possible.
When it comes to achieving a straighter smile, age is only a number. Yes, your facial and oral structures are more firmly in place but with the right amount of pressure, your teeth can begin to move in the right direction. If you want a solution that is more discreet and produces long-lasting, life-changing results much like those achieved with traditional metal braces, you cannot go wrong in choosing Invisalign.
