Adults Wear Braces, Too!

This post is sponsored by Invisalign but opinions and metal braces are my own. I’ve always been pretty self conscious of my smile because of my overbite and getting braces was always in the back of my mind. I was just waiting for the right time. This past year, I developed major issues because of my overbite. The end result would be my front tooth falling out. Having buck teeth, I can deal with. A missing front tooth, I can not.

I ended up with metal braces because I didn’t think clear braces would work for me. It wasn't until I attended an Invisalign Teen StraightTalk event that I was set straight about a couple of my assumptions:

Assumption #1: My dental issues are far too extreme to be fixed by clear, removable plastic. 

As it turn out, Invisalign’s treatment is not limited to mild cosmetic cases. Due to many advances in its proprietary technology, Invisalign can effectively fix crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, open bite, crossbite, overbite and underbite.

Assumption #2: Clear braces cost more than traditional braces. 

During the event, I found out that Invisalign is comparable to the cost of traditional metal braces, is covered by most dental insurance plans, and affordable financing options are always available.

I am thinking more about Invisalign having worn metal braces for 24 hours now. 

While I am happy to finally be taking care of my overbite, I do wish I had scheduled a consultation with a certified Invisalign doctor to find out if clear, removable braces were an option for me since they are just as effective and the cost is roughly the same.

All I’ve had to eat is a bowl of soup and I would really love to chew right now. Also, I have wires and brackets poking around my gums and Violet’s head has already made contact with my mouth. I am feeling very abused right now.

So if you or your teen are considering braces, visit Invisalign online to take the Smile Assessment and learn more about financial options available.

Have you or someone you’ve known used Invisalign? And if so, what was their experience?

This is a sponsored post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
