Being an adult with metal braces is hard. It affects your daily life. It changes what you can eat and drink. It can be painful. It can make it feel like no one takes you seriously professionally during the process.
With the soaring popularity of social media, pictures often make their way through our circle of friends before we’ve even seen them. Having a smile we are unhappy with can lead to embarrassment and anxiety. Not to mention even the professional world has become largely digital with networking sites, email signatures and company websites all frequently featuring photos.
The number of adults seeking orthodontic treatments has risen almost 40% since 1996 according to the American Association of Orthodontics. Our self-image has never been more important to us as a society and with a future that will only increase in digital and social media use it seems that how we feel about our smile will only grow in importance.
The good news is, Dr. Collins offers Invisalign for both teens and adults. They are almost completely invisible and can be removed during meals. Less severe cases can be fixed in as little as two months while more complicated cases can take closer to 18 months. The coolest part is with the latest technology the entire process can be planned and viewed before you even start. Picture impressions allow patients to see before and after photos prior to even wearing the clear aligners for the first time. Invisalign is also great for adults who may have had braces as teens but have experienced some relapse.
