invisalign versus braces

It is becoming more common for adults to get orthodontic treatment, in part because many people want a great looking smile but also because of the functional benefits enjoyed by correcting your bite. Adult Orthodontics is seeing a resurgence because Invisalign replaces the old ugly metal braces system.

There are many reasons why you might want orthodontic treatment as an adult and we would like to learn what motivates you. Some reasons adults seek orthodontic include:

  • Straighten crooked teeth for aesthetics
  • Correction of a destructive bite
  • Reposition natural teeth for smile improvement instead of getting damaging veneers/crowns
  • Fix protruding front teeth
  • Couldn’t afford orthodontic treatment when younger
  • Make space for an implant
  • Don’t want to wear braces and now they have heard about Invisalign

Excitingly, you don’t need to wear traditional braces to achieve your goal! Midwestern Aligner Orthodontics exclusively uses Invisalign aligners to straighten teeth.

We understand that this nearly invisible option is important for adults who don’t want the look or hassle of braces, this is why over 4.5 million people and counting worldwide have improved their smile by using Invisalign.

Caring for your dental health

You want a smile that looks great, but is also going to be healthy for life. So while you are having orthodontic treatment you still need to see you general dentist for regular check-ups.

Adults seeking orthodontic treatment sometimes need to see another type of dental specialist (such as an oral maxillofacial surgeon or periodontist) to achieve the best result for the look and health of their smile.

If you want an orthodontist who is very particular about keeping your dental health in mind and enjoys collaborating with your general dentist or other specialist, Dr Leen at Midwestern Aligner Orthodontics will suit you.
