A Record Number of Adults Now Seeking Orthodontic Care

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, 1.2 million adults sought orthodontic care in the United States in 2012. That number marks a 14 percent increase over 2010 and is largely due to options such as Invisalign®.

For years, adults seeking orthodontic treatment have had very few attractive options. Braces can be obtrusive and painful. They can also take years to accomplish proper alignment in adult mouths. By contrast, Invisalign treatment is completed with clear aligner trays that are both comfortable and inconspicuous. Better still, Invisalign can often correct even severe malocclusion in as little as 12 months.

Removable Aligners

In addition to being less noticeable, faster, and more comfortable than other orthodontic options, Invisalign aligners are able to be removed, giving them significant advantages over braces. While aligners need to be worn at most times for optimal results, they can be removed for eating and tooth cleaning. This allows you to maintain your regular diet and keep teeth and gums healthy, strong, and attractive during your entire treatment period. These and other advantages offered by Invisalign can be discussed in more detail during your consultation with one of our Pittsburgh cosmetic dentists.
