If you are living with crooked teeth, you can attest to the toll it takes on your confidence when you worry about what people will think about your smile when they meet you. Or you have to remember to hide your teeth in photos.

However, did you know that your misaligned teeth are also impacting your dental health? Teeth that are crowded or overlap are harder to keep clean when you are brushing and flossing. If you can't properly remove plaque buildup, you are at a higher risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Straightening your teeth will not only boost your confidence but also protect your oral health.

Here are three reasons adults are looking to Invisalign to straighten their teeth.

#1: Invisalign Offers the Utmost Discretion

Because Invisalign uses clear aligners instead of traditional brackets and wires, no one will ever notice you are straightening your teeth! You can also remove the aligners if you have a big presentation or a meeting with a client. 

#2: Aligners Are Removable

Remember how we just mentioned that you could remove your aligners for big meetings? Well, you can remove them for eating, brushing, and flossing as well. This means that you can still enjoy all the foods you love during your treatment, and you won't have to be concerned about brushing and flossing around wires and brackets.

#3: Invisalign Is Efficient

Whether you forgot to wear your retainers after braces, or this is your first encounter with orthodontic treatment, most Invisalign cases can be completed efficiently in a matter of months rather than years.
