Invisalign for Adults

At Dr. Gordon Niles Orthodontics, our team works tirelessly to provide our patients with comfortable treatments and beautiful outcomes. We understand that pursuing orthodontic treatment as an adult can be tough, as juggling children, work and other responsibilities require a lot of attention. However, new technology and treatment methods, like Invisalign, have helped our older patients spend less time in the office while still earning a beautiful smile at the end of their orthodontic journey. 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative alternative to traditional braces that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. For teens and adult patients, the clear aligners provide the perfect option for improving their smile. Invisalign aligners need to be worn 22 hours a day to achieve the desired smile, but can be removed for eating, special events, and brushing/flossing. It’s one of the fastest growing treatment options at our office, and Dr. Niles would be happy to examine you to see if Invisalign is right for you.

What Invisalign Can Treat

As a general rule of thumb, Invisalign is great for mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Invisalign can be used to treat:

  • Gapped Teeth
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite

Unfortunately, Invisalign may not be recommended if you have more severe orthodontic issues. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Niles will let you know if Invisalign or metal braces will work better for your particular case.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign prevents a number of advantages over traditional braces. Some of the benefits of Invisalign include: 

Improved Appearance

Oftentimes, braces are associated with adolescents which makes it difficult for adults to pursue that treatment option. Invisalign offers a practically invisible option, so now adults can straighten their teeth without anyone noticing.

No Dietary Restrictions

Unlike braces, there are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign. Because you take your aligners out before you eat, you can still enjoy your favorite snacks throughout treatment.

Easy Oral Hygiene

Since Invisalign aligners are removable, it makes brushing and flossing much easier. There is no need for additional threaders or other cleaning devices for your teeth.

Fewer Trips to the Orthodontist  

We know our patients have busy lives and would much rather spend less time in the office. Patients with Invisalign aligners typically spend less time in our office, so there’s no need to skip your lunch break for your appointment.
