Worried About Wearing Braces as an Adult? Dr. Megan Dietz Helps Patients With a Convenient Alternative


As adults, many of us have certain things that we’ve always wanted to do, but for one reason or another, we’ve never gotten around to doing them. If getting braces is one of those things, it is understandable that you may be hesitant to move forward with the process as an adult.

Many adults have expressed a dislike for the appearance of metal braces, and are often embarrassed by the way it can make them look. Plus, the hassle that metal braces can cause often deters adults from deciding to take steps to improve the appearance of their teeth. Fortunately, at Encinitas Cosmetic Dentistry, our Invisalign® dentist, Dr. Megan Dietz, has been helping people achieve the straight teeth they’ve been hoping for without causing an undesired appearance.

Dr. Dietz says that with Invisalign® clear teeth aligners, her patients are able to have their teeth straightened much more discreetly, and without the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional metal braces. Also, Invisalign® teeth aligners are removable for brushing, flossing, eating, and drinking! Patients with mild to moderate teeth crowding and misalignment can improve lifelong orthodontic issues with this advanced procedure designed to straighten the teeth in a more comfortable (and less noticeable) way. Dr. Dietz reminds patients that there are also other discreet and fast straightening techniques available, including Six Month Smiles and Invisalign® Express 5 (five-aligner set for minor orthodontic issues).

If you have been thinking about straightening your teeth, but are hesitant about metal braces, please contact us today to schedule a consultation to find out if Invisalign® is right for you.
