Your Golden Years Are an Excellent Time for Invisalign®

Posted on: April 15, 2018

Invisalign®Have you always wanted a beautiful smile but never had the time to achieve it? If so, you are like most adults and should consider Invisalign®. Life gets incredibly busy with work schedules to keep and children to raise that it can be difficult to find time to attend to your basic needs. Straightening your teeth with braces may never enter the equation as a real possibility until it becomes a necessity.

Why you should consider straightening your teeth:

If you are in your retirement years, there is still hope for you to improve your smile. With the increase in available dental care, many people are reaching retirement with all of their teeth naturally healthy and intact. This point is, you do not need to look for dentures like your parents did.

Instead, you need to look for ways to improve your smile. After all, you have the time, and you have the money, and you are likely to be flashing that smile for years to come. You might as well like what you see when you look in the mirror.

Invisalign® is Ideal for Retirees

No one likes change.  It does not matter whether you are five years old or 65, change is something that most people prefer to avoid. Thus, many adults are leery about the idea of straightening their teeth with the possibility of having to change their routine. This is one of the reasons why we believe you will prefer treating your teeth using clear aligners. The changes that you make are so incredibly minor that it is far easier to live with the decision to do so.

We know that when you wear braces, it is going to require you to clean your teeth differently on a daily basis. You will be spending more time in the bathroom brushing and flossing with a special pick and flossing tools. This is simply unavoidable since food will become trapped between your brackets and wires. At the same time, your appearance is going to look different so that represents change, and what you eat also may need to have some adjustments.

So…

For many adults, it is simply too much change to deal with at one time.  Enter: CLEAR ALIGNERS.

When you straighten your teeth using the Invisalign® clear aligners many of the same inconveniences no longer apply. The aligners are fully removable. They are designed to come out when you eat which means that you can continue to enjoy your favorite meals without restrictions.

If your favorite meal happens to involve steak, you can take out your aligners and eat your steak without worrying about it becoming trapped in between your brackets and wires. After eating, you need to brush your teeth and put your aligners back in to keep the process going.

It is that easy.

When it comes to cleaning your teeth, your routine will also stay the same. You can use your same type of toothbrush and floss and the only difference is that you’ll need to also clean your aligners by following our instructions. This additional step only takes a minute so you truly will not experience any inconvenience when it comes to your healthcare routine.
