Considering Orthodontic Treatment? 5 Benefits of Invisalign® for Adults, Potomac, Maryland

As orthodontic work becomes more affordable and accessible, many adults who missed out on treatment in their teen years want to get their teeth straightened. But many patients worry they may encounter some stigma surrounding adult braces, and this procedure is more associated with adolescence. If you're one of those who need their teeth straightened but worry about wearing braces, you may be a good candidate for Invisalign®, which provides many benefits to adult patients.

Why Choose Invisalign?

1. Inconspicuous

OrthodonticsWhat sets Invisalign apart from other options is that the aligners are almost impossible to see once they're in your mouth. The thin, clear plastic is extremely inconspicuous and will only be spotted by someone looking closely.

2. Comfortable

Traditional braces are known for their metal components, which can poke and even cut the patient's mouth. Invisalign is smooth, custom fit for your mouth, minimizing discomfort and protecting you from injuries.

3. Removable

While you'll need to commit to wearing your aligners for the majority of the day and night, you have the option of taking them out when you need to. This makes eating more convenient and can also help with self-confidence in social situations.

4. Health Benefits Provided

Orthodontic treatment isn't only about aesthetics. Straightening your teeth makes your bite stronger and sturdier, as well as making your teeth easier to clean, so they're less susceptible to cavities. With Invisalign, you can enjoy these benefits in as little as six months.

5. Mold Isn’t Used

Having a mold of your teeth can be an uncomfortable, messy process, but Invisalign doesn't rely on molds. Instead, your aligners are based on advanced 3-D scanning technology, which will form a perfect digital image of your mouth.


Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment that will give you all the benefits of straight teeth without the drawbacks of braces.
