Can Adults Benefit From Invisalign?

Invisalign for adults in Riverhead New YorkCrooked or overlapping teeth are not just embarrassing. They can also negatively impact your oral health by disrupting the stability and function of your bite, which could lead to problems down the road.

What Are Invisible Braces?

Nesconset Dental Associates in Nesconset, NY are a proud Invisalign® provider offering treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Invisalign provides patients with a discreet way to alter their smiles and can even be used for teens. The system will gently and discreetly reposition your teeth with only about a year of use, with little impact on your daily activities.

With the Invisalign system, patients can still enjoy their favorite foods while also taking charge of their oral health. The aligners are custom-fitted by your Nesconset Dental Associates dentist and intended to be worn for about 22 hours a day. They are specially designed to be comfortable and  are easy to remove when necessary for eating, brushing teeth or when it’s time to swap them out for another set based on your treatment plan.

Am I Too Old For Invisalign?

Even though our teeth are all set in place by adulthood, that does not mean that you are too old or it’s too late to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten them. Many adults get traditional braces or use the Invisalign system with positive results. Invisalign can be used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues, and it can also be used to address minor tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment. Invisalign also offers patients options to treat underbite, overbite, and tooth spacing concerns.

Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?

Straightening crooked or overlapping teeth is not just a cosmetic procedure. Crooked teeth are more susceptible to damage and decay and may cause more serious problems in the future. Serious overbite and underbite issues can also affect dental health by changing the stability of your bite, leading to excessive wear and tear and discomfort. Plus, teeth that are aligned properly are easier to brush and floss, reducing your chances of tooth decay due to less plaque buildup.
