Orthodontics Aren’t Just for Kids

Preventative Orthodontics for Adults 2 at Douglas A. Callow, DDS Office in Plymouth, MI

Who doesn’t wish they could forget all about middle school? The drama… the love interests… the love fails… The terrible fashion… The braces. Raise your hand if you saw friend after friend getting braces, carrying around their packet of wax, and brushing their teeth after lunch every day.

Now you’re in a position to desire or need orthodontia, and it sounds really terrifying to experience braces as an adults. You have a career after all. You’d like to be romantic with your partner. You want your kids to take you seriously. How is that going to happen if you’re a metal mouth?

Enter Invisalign in Plymouth, MI. An advanced approach to orthodontics that will allow you to walk around with your head held high while your teeth are aligned into perfection.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is hardly a secret, but it is still unknown to many of our patients who could benefit from it. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that will progressively move your teeth into their perfect position for complete function and comfort.

During treatment, you will switch your aligners every 12-14 days to continue positive movement. We’ll ask you to come into the office every six weeks or so. This will allow us to measure your progress and give you the next set of aligners required for your smile.

After a period of about 12-18 months, your smile will be stunning. Each tooth will be in perfect alignment so that you feel comfortable and look great.

Unlikely Bonuses of Invisalign

Invisalign is great for a lot of reasons. The fact that it is clear, comfortable, and easy to use are among the top. However, there are even more reasons to love Invisalign treatment. Take a look at some of those reasons below:

  • Your TMJ could be healed. Some patients are having headaches due to misaligned teeth and don’t even realize it. Once we get your teeth into alignment, you should find relief from your TMJ pain.
  • You have the freedom to hide. Having orthodontic care as an adult sounds horrifying because all we can think about is tin teeth that we saw in middle school. Invisalign truly is invisible, but if you are ever preparing for a big event like a wedding or graduation, know that you can remove your aligners on those rare occasions.
  • Your teeth will remain clean. One of the largest negatives of braces is trying to keep your teeth clean. It’s tricky enough to floss well when you don’t have braces, but imagine flossing around wires and brackets! Invisalign should be removed when you are cleaning your teeth, which will allow you to floss and brush effectively. You won’t have to worry about decay happening under your brackets!


If you are in need of orthodontic care, give us a call at 734-404-7336. We offer free consultations, so you can learn about Invisalign without any cost to you. We’ll take a look at your smile and let you know if this solution would work for you. If you’re a good candidate, you can begin treatment soon after our consultation.

Get the smile you deserve. Call today, and let’s get started!
