Having straight teeth has its advantages from giving you confidence, to make caring for your teeth easier. These days, many people who wish to straighten their teeth are choosing Invisalign – clear aligners that are perfect for correcting mild to moderate misalignment. Your cosmetic dentists in Greeneville at Tusculum Dental Care would like you to know that Invisalign is perfect for these three types of patients.


Most people assume that teens needing orthodontic treatment will end up wearing traditional metal braces. While that may be the case for some, Invisalign might be the right choice for some teens, especially those that have only slightly crooked or crowded teeth. Misaligned teeth of this nature can be challenging to keep clean, which means that bacteria and plaque lurk in hard to clean areas. This buildup of bacteria inevitably leads to bad breath and an unfavorable appearance of dirty looking teeth, which could cause embarrassment.

Since Invisalign aligners are clear, teens can straighten their teeth without anyone really noticing. Plus, since the aligners are to be removed when eating, and performing oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing, teens can keep their teeth clean easier than with metal braces, which trap food particles and are difficult to clean.

Adult Business Professionals

Adult professionals in business, or other areas where many people day in and day out see them should consider Invisalign. Metal or ceramic braces may be a bit of a distraction or make the patient feel self-conscious about their looks, which is why Invisalign could be the perfect choice for business professionals. Plus, people you see each day will hardly notice, if at all, that you are straightening your teeth with Invisalign! Best of all, treatment may be as short as six months, so you can have that smile of your dreams in no time. Keep in mind that the length of treatment may vary depending on your orthodontic needs.

Busy Moms

Any mother knows that taking care of one’s self is essential – you can’t pour from an empty cup, so to speak. Moms are usually busy taking care of everyone else, that because of the time commitment or financial expense of traditional braces, that option might be off the table for some individuals. With Invisalign, appointments are faster, repairs require less time and are less likely to be needed, it’s much easier to clean your teeth when you aren’t dealing with all the brackets and wires, and the results will make you feel better about yourself. If you’re a busy mom, Invisalign may be the best option for you, so that you can get on with your day.
