What do you hate about your smile? Do gapped, crooked, or misaligned teeth have you down?
There’s little more in life that’s more frustrating than orthodontic issues. Gapped teeth can make you embarrassed to smile when the camera comes out. Crooked teeth can make you appear impoverished or even unhealthy. Misaligned teeth can cause toothaches and make it difficult to chew.
But orthodontic treatment using metal braces is entirely unappealing to most adults. Who really has time to spend two years dealing with metal brackets and wires? Who wants to endure the pain of constant adjustments and tightenings? Worse yet, who really wants to walk into work with metal mouth?
At 1st In Smiles in Plano, TX, we feel your pain. That’s why we’re proud to offer Invisalign clear braces to remake your smile. In one of our recent posts, we briefly mentioned Invisalign. Recently, patients have asked to tell them a little bit more about Invisalign. So in today’s post of our dental health blog, we’re go to tell you four important things you should know about Invisalign if you’re considering orthodontic treatment. Let’s get started!
1. Invisalign Aligners Are Virtually Invisible
One of the most common reasons adults avoid traditional adult braces is that they simply dislike the idea of wearing metal brackets and wires on their teeth. Who can really blame them? Metal braces can make you look immature, inexperienced, and even unprofessional at work. That’s to say nothing about the embarrassment of wearing them at social gatherings.
Invisalign aligners are specially made to be virtually invisible in your smile. That means you won’t have to worry about metal mouth embarrassing during your everyday life. Plus your aligners are removable. That means if you need to take them out to look great for a special occasion, you can!
2. Invisalign is Custom Made to Work Faster
Invisalign aligners are customized to your unique smile. Before you begin treatment we create a 3D model to plan your treatment. Then you receive a set of customized aligners to wear for around two weeks at a time. We can even give you a preview of your new smile before you even begin treatment.
The unique customized nature of Invisalign also helps it work faster than traditional adult braces. With most metal braces, you’re stuck wearing them for at least two years. Invisalign works twice as fast! Most adults see the results they desire after just a year of wearing their Invisalign aligners.
3. Invisalign is Designed to Work with Your Lifestyle
Not only does Invisalign work faster than traditional adult braces, Invisalign clear braces won’t inconvenience you with the need for countless appointments and adjustments. We provide you with several aligners at once so you don’t have to miss work or school to get into our office.
Plus the removable nature of Invisalign aligners ensures a more flexible treatment than that offered by braces. Think about what you had for dinner last night. Would you be able to eat that while in traditional adult braces? With metal braces you have to completely avoid food that could get stuck in your braces or damage them. Invisalign comes with no such restrictions, you simply take out your aligner before you eat.
4. Invisalign is a Comfortable Option for Orthodontic Treatment
By the very nature of their design, traditional adult braces can cause you a great deal of discomfort. The brackets can scratch the inside of your lips and trying to brush your teeth around the wires can be a pain in the neck. Plus then you have to waste time cleaning the brackets and wires of traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are smooth and comfortable. When worn properly, you might even forget that you have them in. Plus you don’t have to worry about any of the stains that traditional adult braces often leave on your teeth when they’re removed.
