Absolutely! In fact, it’s a great idea. Invisalign is an ideal solution to correct misaligned teeth or teeth that are not properly spaced. Misalignment can appear in patients that have ever received orthodontic treatment as well as those whose teeth have relapsed after spending years in braces as a child or teen. As an adult, if you are regretting your decision to dismiss your retainer and your teeth have shifted back to their original position, you still have options for a straight smile now. Invisalign may be right for you.
Why Go with Invisalign?
Invisalign is considered an excellent solution for orthodontic relapse. You could opt to put on classic braces again to readjust wayward teeth. However, many adults prefer to go the metal-free route when they are older. Here are some reasons why most patients are choosing Invisalign:
- Much more discreet than braces
- Removable for convenient cleaning
- Won’t limit what you can eat since you remove them for meals
- Greater comfort over metal brackets and wires
A Few Caveats
Just remember that Invisalign, like any other orthodontic option, is not forever. You still need to carefully maintain the work you put into your smile. This means wearing a retainer as directed, keeping up the excellent oral hygiene and visiting your dentist for regular dental checkups.
Invisalign is ideal for tweaking small discrepancies resulting from an orthodontic relapse. But if your teeth have fallen back into a very complicated case, there’s a chance you may need something more.
