Upgrade Your Smile in 2024 With Invisalign®

Conventional metal braces are the most trusted orthodontic treatment around. They’ve been available in some form for thousands of years, and in their modern form for centuries. Metal braces are so trustworthy, that you could even get them as same-day braces at Beauchamp Orthodontics.

Metal braces are convenient, easy to care for, and often the most cost-effective choice. However, they’re not the only option! Unless you have very severe orthodontic issues, most adults and teens qualify for the “clear alternative” to ordinary braces: Clear plastic aligners.

Although there’s more than one brand of clear plastic aligners, the one nearly everyone has heard about is the Invisalign® brand. Invisalign® stands out above the rest because it was the first brand of clear plastic aligners to achieve FDA approval for orthodontic treatment in the United States.

Since the 1990s, more than 16 million people all around the world have received orthodontic treatment with Invisalign®. While only about 25% of people who wear conventional metal braces are adults, the numbers are reversed with Invisalign®. Just under a quarter of Invisalign® patients are older teens who qualify, while most are adults.

Why Are So Many Adult Orthodontic Patients Choosing Invisalign® in 2024?

The new year is the perfect time to get ready for the big changes you want to make in your life. Sure, you could get orthodontic treatment any time, but the start of a new year helps highlight how important it is to make the big moves that will make a difference in your enjoyment and confidence level in the future.

Adults may take a little bit longer than teens to see the benefits of orthodontic treatment in the mirror. But the sooner you get started, the sooner you can enjoy the kind of beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Plus, your Invisalign® clear plastic aligners make it even easier for you to see the positive change over time.

Let’s take a look at some of the many reasons why Florida orthodontic patients prefer Invisalign®:

1. They’re Easy to Clean

Cleaning is important for any orthodontic appliance and any form of dental work. Clear plastic aligners can be easier to clean than regular braces because you remove them in order to clean them. You will daily brush them gently, and when you want to be sure you clean them thoroughly you can use cleaners and cleaning products from the brand.

It’s true that regular metal braces aren’t tough to keep clean. However, there can be some challenges if a piece of food gets stuck in your braces. Some patients report difficulty cleaning around the braces. Naturally, as your orthodontic treatment continues, your teeth will be less crowded and even easier to clean.

2. They’re Safe to Remove

When you get started with clear plastic aligners, you’ll need to wear them for more than 20 hours a day every day. That even means sleeping with them! Unlike braces, though, you can easily take them out when you’re playing sports, eating, or doing anything else where they might get in the way.

3. They’re Less Likely to Be Damaged

Metal braces are highly durable, but wires can get bent accidentally. That’s especially likely if you eat any foods that are off-limits with braces. On the other hand, you don’t have to change any eating habits with clear plastic aligners. Simply brush and floss normally like you’ve always done.

4. There Are No Lengthy Procedures

With same-day braces, you can get started with metal braces on the same day you decide to get them done. But the process of putting new braces in place can take a few hours. The surface of your teeth will need to be prepared and a special adhesive applied. Then the braces themselves have to be put on.

By contrast, it only takes about five minutes for Beauchamp Orthodontics to use advanced digital tools to scan your teeth. This creates an impression of your teeth and mouth used to fabricate the perfect pair of Invisalign® aligners for you. You can then pick them up from our office in just a few days.

5. They’re Subtle Enough for Adults

Invisalign® clear plastic aligners may not be invisible, but they’re certainly the next best thing. Our patients often tell us that Dr. Beauchamp is the only person who knows they use Invisalign®. Even when you look at them in the mirror, you might have trouble seeing them.

For those reasons – not to mention the wonderful sense of confidence you can feel when your treatment is all done – adults love Invisalign® and are choosing it in 2024.
