Do you crave a straighter smile? According to research, millions of teens and adults would like to correct misalignment. At the same time, many of them continue to postpone making that consultation with their dentist. Even though orthodontic care has evolved significantly in the past few decades, there is still a perception that braces are the only way to really get teeth straight. If you have been putting off your evaluation for teeth straightening treatment, there is no time like the present to get to know Invisalign.
Invisalign is not braces. It is not cosmetic braces. It is a system unlike any we have seen throughout the history of teeth straightening. At the same time, this treatment protocol is based on the same principles that have been correcting misalignment for years. The method is there, but the mechanics are different – and that is a beautiful thing!
Benefits of Invisalign
There are several reasons why the Invisalign system is so popular:
- Comfort. Without brackets poking into the cheeks or sticking to lips, there isn’t much left to cause discomfort. Invisalign trays fit closely to your teeth, so there is virtually nothing protruding from the surface.
- Confidence. You are probably aware that you will feel more confident in your appearance when you have straighter teeth. However, the mere thought of having a “metal mouth” can keep you from moving forward. It’s like a necessary evil to get a healthier, more attractive smile! Not with Invisalign. Clear, plastic aligners do not diminish the natural appearance of your smile, so you can go about your life as usual, feeling more confident as time goes on.
- Convenience. Aside from the appearance of braces, and the discomfort brackets may cause, a major drawback of conventional orthodontic treatment is the aspect of eating. Trying to eat a variety of foods with braces can be a daunting task. So much so that many patients simply give up certain foods, like popcorn or corn on the cob, until they have completed their orthodontic treatment. Again, Invisalign breaks through this challenge with its innovative removable aligners.
From eating to speaking and smiling to brushing, Invisalign has been created to tackle the obstacles that have been keeping you from seeking teeth-straightening treatment. Learn more about this treatment. Schedule your visit with us.
