Braces aren’t just for teens anymore. With the increasing popularity of invisible aligners, many adults can straighten their teeth without anyone knowing they’re doing it. Thanks to SmileDirectClub, it’s finally become affordable for adults to get straighter teeth.
The Wall Street Journal recently reported on the significant increase in adults who are actively seeking straighter teeth. More than 1.2 million U.S. adults underwent orthodontic treatment in 2012, according to the American Association of Orthodontists. This is a 39% increase since 1996.
But how much do adult braces cost? Typically, adult orthodontic treatment ranges from $4800 to $7135, according to the American Dental Association. Not only are braces not cheap, they also take time. On average it takes 24 to 30 months to treat an adult with braces, according to the American Association of Orthodontists.
While adult orthodontic treatment is on the rise, many people don’t like the idea of wearing metal braces. With invisible aligners (often called clear braces), they don’t have to. These clear, plastic aligners slide easily over teeth, allowing people to realign their smiles comfortably, effectively, and invisibly. Unfortunately, many brands of invisible aligners cost $5000 on average.
Now with SmileDirectClub, adults seeking straighter teeth can get the smile they’ve always wanted without the discomfort and appearance of metal braces and without the high cost of many other invisible aligners.
