Our patients often ask Dr. Borham if they are old for Invisalign. As Dr. Borham advises his patients that as long as their teeth and gums are healthy, he can help them get an incredible smile at any age.  Also, patients may be embarrassed to get braces installed, or maybe they want but cannot afford the costs, do not worry, the solution is always there, most adults are embarrassed to get braces, or they cannot afford the costs, and this is where Invisalign comes in. Invisalign is a clear, invisible compound that a person can take off and eat and will no longer embarrass you.

If you are an adult who needs orthodontics and wants a straighter and more beautiful smile, then Invisalign is the leading provider of clear braces and guarantees stunning results.

Mesilla Valley Family Dentistry shares the reasons why Invisalign is such a great option for adult patients:

  1. Completely invisible and does not affect speech and pronunciation:

No one will know you are wearing Invisalign unless you want them to know. Adults who wear braces are more likely to be shy, especially those who work professional or white-collar jobs. When Invisalign is worn, however, it is undetectable. Because it is invisible and no one can tell you are using Invisalign, it has no effect on your speech or appearance, allowing you to carefully adjust your smile.

  1. Comparing to braces, Invisalign has a much shorter treatment time:

You do not have to wear Invisalign indefinitely. You usually will only have to wear Invisalign for about 12 months, which is less than traditional treatment via wearing braces. Placing Invisalign and using it now at an early age will help you make your teeth straighter and more comfortable. Invisalign for adults is considered successful and effective according to advances in diagnosis, treatment, and procedures.

  1. Invisalign is low maintenance:

Even If you have a busy schedule, it is easy to make time for the treatment you need with Invisalign. You do not have to spend an hour every few weeks in the dentist’s office to adjust your Invisalign and this will save you time and money.

  1. Invisalign is more affordable than you would think:

Dr. Borham believes everyone deserves to get a smile they love within their budget limit. You can call our office to get a quote.  Dr. Borham recommends Invisalign if you wish to straighten your teeth without braces. The therapy consists of a series of clear, removable plastic aligners that are custom-made for you according to Dr. Borham’s instructions. Your new smile emerges as you progress up the chain. The advantages of Invisalign are that it is nearly invisible, and the orthotics are removable, so there are no limits on what you can eat, and your mouth hygiene regimen remains the same and it is convenient. You will not need to schedule any emergency repairs because straighteners do not have brackets or wires. You will be able to go about quickly.

  1. The Benefits of Adult Orthodontics are Significant.
