If you wore metal braces in your childhood, you know that these appliances can be messy, cumbersome, and a little embarrassing. Fortunately, today’s patients can enjoy comfortable and discreet orthodontic treatments. At Adams Dental Associates, we offer braces for adults like Invisalign orthodontics to straighten your smile comfortably and discreetly.
How does Invisalign treatment work?
Instead of using metal wires and brackets, Invisalign treatment uses clear, plastic trays to straighten your smile. During your appointment, Dr. Kosta Adams takes digital impressions of your teeth, which are sent to a dental lab to fashion your aligners.
The dental lab creates a series of custom trays, which you will have to swap every two weeks for the next 12 to 18 months to realign your teeth to the proper position. You must wear your aligners at least 20 to 22 hours a day to achieve the intended results. Only remove your aligners when eating or cleaning them.

Benefits of braces for adults
While traditional braces have been used for many years to straighten teeth, Invisalign treatment is the new kid on the block that meets the needs of modern people. Here are the benefits of Invisalign treatment:
- It’s discreet:Invisalign treatment uses invisible aligners that straighten your smile without announcing
it to the world.
- It’s comfortable: Clear braces are craftily made to fit on your gums comfortably. You don’t have to worry about irritation, unlike metal braces.
- Convenience: The retractable nature of clear braces means that you can remove them to clean your teeth, optimizing your oral hygiene. Besides, you can remove them and put them back after enjoying your favorite delicacy.
Why do you need to straighten teeth?
Crooked or misaligned teeth aren’t only a cosmetic issue but affect your oral hygiene, too. Crooked teeth are difficult to clean, an action that encourages plaque buildup, resulting in gum disease. Besides, misaligned bites could lead to TMJ pain that leads to symptoms like headaches, jaw pain, earaches, and clicking sounds when opening and closing your jaw.
