You wish your teeth were straighter, closer together, and overall more nicely aligned.

But every time you take a minute to think about what your life would be like wearing braces, you tuck those hopes for a better-looking smile away again in a back corner of your mind.

We don’t blame you! There are certain things you don’t want to go through to get the smile you want, like:

  • Restricting your diet
  • Spending more time picking food out of your braces
  • Pressing your lips tightly together when you smile
  • Missing work all the time for frequent dental appointments
  • Using dental wax to keep sharp wires from poking or tearing your cheeks
  • Feeling insecure about giving presentations or having your photo taken

The list goes on. But today, you have no more excuses for avoiding orthodontic treatment!
That’s because your friends at Shook Dental Care are telling you about Invisalign, an innovative solution for straightening crooked teeth that’s ideal for hard-working adults like you!

Don’t Assume Braces Are Your Only Option!

You might have a general understanding of how much dentistry has improved overall in recent years, but you may not know how certain specific treatments have evolved.

That’s what we see from our orthodontics patients in San Pedro! They’re always pleasantly surprised that there’s an alternative to metal brackets and wires to straighten their teeth, one that doesn’t force them to look like a pre-teen!

Invisalign Is A Clear Winner For Adults!

In all the years we’ve been helping patients love their smiles with cosmetic dentistry, we’ve seen plenty of adults who initially assumed traditional braces were their only option for straightening their teeth.
So we get it! Why bother even entertaining the idea of orthodontics if you have to go through all the hassle, inconvenience, and embarrassment of wearing braces that all your friends got out of the way when you were in grade school?

With Invisalign, a series of removable aligners that fit over your teeth, you don’t have to endure any of that! Here’s why:

  • The aligners are smooth and comfortable inside your mouth
  • You can take them out when you eat, brush, and floss
  • You don’t have to schedule as many maintenance appointments
  • The aligners are clear and nearly invisible
  • You can see results in 12 months or less!

Because of these differences, older teens and adults find Invisalign a far more attractive and convenient form of orthodontic treatment that helps them maintain their normal routines, lifestyle, and appearances.
While conventional braces are still best for more complicated problems with your bite alignment and teeth position, a consultation with Dr. Shook might reveal that you’re a good candidate for Invisalign as an alternative!
