Orthodontics…Not Just for Kids

Quick! What image does your mind conjure up when you hear the word “braces.” Do you have a visual of a kid with a freshly-scrubbed face, sporting a mouthful of metal brackets and wires? If you do, then you aren't alone. That image, though, is changing these days as adults decide that they want to have access to the straight teeth and flawless smile that is the result of having braces.

Adults and Braces — They Just go Together!

Are you one of the millions of adults who don't smile as much as they want because you are self conscious about your teeth? Do you envy your friends who seem to have teeth that are straight and even? Even though you are an adult, it doesn't mean that a magic window has passed and that you are no longer a candidate for braces. In fact, adult orthodontics is a growing segment of the industry that has prompted exciting innovations that promise to make your dreams of a flawless smile a reality.

Invisalign — The Adult Answer to Braces

As an adult, you probably don't think that having a mouth full of metal is a good trade off for an even smile — at least not at this point in your life. With Invisalign, though, you don't have to give up one for the other. They are custom made for your own unique bone structure and facial shape by your orthodontist in Goodlettsville, TN and designed to address problems such as teeth crowding, overbite, spacing and more. Invisalign offers numerous advantages for busy adults that traditional metal braces simply cannot address.

  • You can remove them whenever you want. This allows you to effectively brush and floss your teeth to protect the health of your teeth as well as eat your favorite foods without worry.
  • You also won't need to visit your orthodontist in Hendersonville, TN as often. With Invisalign braces, you only need to schedule visits with your orthodontist every four to six weeks, a boon for busy parents who might find it difficult to schedule one more regular activity.
  • You'll be comfortable. Invisalign braces are designed of smooth plastic that is gentle to your mouth, cheeks and gums. Metal braces can poke and cut your mouth with their hard surfaces.
