When we think of orthodontic treatment, we often picture teenagers with metal braces. But did you know that Varble Orthodontics offers treatments for adults as well?


The field of orthodontics has evolved, and more adults are seeking treatment to improve their smiles and oral health. Clear aligners, such as Invisalign or our in-house 3D printed aligners, have become a popular choice for adults due to their numerous benefits. If you're a parent considering orthodontic treatment for yourself or learning more for a family member, understanding the advantages of clear aligners can be enlightening. Here’s why clear aligners are a great option for adults.


Discreet Appearance


Invisible Solution

One of the most appealing benefits of clear aligners is their nearly invisible appearance. Made from transparent plastic, clear aligners fit snugly over the teeth, making them much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. For adults who may feel self-conscious about wearing braces, clear aligners offer a discreet alternative that allows them to maintain a professional appearance at work and in social settings.



Comfort and Convenience


Smooth and Comfortable

Unlike traditional braces, which can cause irritation with metal brackets and wires, clear aligners are made of smooth plastic that is custom-fitted to your teeth. This minimizes discomfort and reduces the likelihood of sores and irritation inside the mouth. Many adults find clear aligners more comfortable to wear daily.


Removable for Flexibility

Clear aligners are designed to be removable, offering greater flexibility than fixed braces. This means you can take them out when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This not only makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene but also allows you to enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions. For busy adults, this convenience can be a significant advantage.



Efficient and Predictable Treatment


Advanced Technology

Clear aligner treatment plans are created using advanced 3D imaging technology. This allows orthodontists to map out the entire treatment process from start to finish, providing a clear picture of the expected results. Adults can see a virtual representation of how their teeth will move and what their smile will look like at the end of treatment, giving them confidence in the process.


Effective Results

Clear aligners are highly effective at treating a wide range of orthodontic issues, from minor adjustments to more complex cases. By wearing the aligners as prescribed, adults can achieve the desired results efficiently. Regular check-ins with the orthodontist ensure that the treatment is progressing as planned, and adjustments can be made as needed.



Minimal Impact on Daily Life


Easy Maintenance

Maintaining clear aligners is straightforward. They can be cleaned easily with a toothbrush and mild soap, or special cleaning crystals provided by the aligner manufacturer. This simplicity makes it easier for adults to keep their aligners clean and clear, contributing to overall oral hygiene.

Clear aligners can also be paired with our VO on the Go dental monitoring system. This allows you to complete treatment check-ins from the comfort of your home through a state-of-the-art app while having real-time access and thorough oversight from the Varble Orthodontics team to ensure treatment is progressing and all patient responsibilities are being met. 



Boosted Confidence


Improved Self-Esteem

A significant benefit of clear aligners is the boost in confidence they provide. Many adults feel self-conscious about their teeth and may hesitate to smile or speak in public. Clear aligners offer a path to a straighter, more attractive smile without the stigma of visible braces. This can lead to improved self-esteem and a more positive self-image.


Long-Term Benefits

Investing in orthodontic treatment as an adult can have lasting benefits for both oral health and overall well-being. Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease. Additionally, a well-aligned bite can alleviate issues such as jaw pain and headaches, contributing to better long-term health.



Conclusion

Clear aligners offer a modern, effective, and discreet solution for adults seeking orthodontic treatment. Their numerous benefits, including a nearly invisible appearance, comfort, convenience, and efficient results, make them an attractive option. If you're a parent considering orthodontic treatment for yourself or learning more for your family, clear aligners provide a flexible and confidence-boosting alternative to traditional braces.

Investing in your smile as an adult can enhance not only your appearance but also your oral health and overall well-being. Embrace the advantages of clear aligners and enjoy the journey to a healthier, more confident smile. Book your free consultation today!
