Have you ever wished that you could magically get an attractive new smile without anyone ever knowing you were straightening your teeth? You can with Invisalign!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign consists of clear aligners that are made to specifically fit over your teeth to straighten them into a beautiful, new smile. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are practically invisible and completely removable! The plastic aligners are made BPA-free and they gently move your teeth using light pressure. In many cases, Invisalign treatment can be completed within a year.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
- Smooth and Comfortable aligners
- Removable. Take them out when brushing and flossing your teeth, making it much easier to care for your smile than if you were to wear conventional braces.
- No dietary restrictions – eat whatever you want.
- Nearly invisible – Most people will not be able to see anything over your smile.
- Won’t interfere with your speech.
- Fewer dental visits – Usually every 6 weeks
Comfort and convenience make Invisalign an excellent choice for people who don’t want to wear metal brackets and wires.
What are some advantages of having straighter teeth?
More Self-Confidence– Having straighter teeth can help you feel more confident about smiling or talking in public. You won’t have to worry about hiding behind your crooked teeth!
Less Wear to Your Tooth Enamel– When you bite down or chew, you put a lot of pressure on your teeth. If your teeth are crooked, it can put extra pressure on teeth that are not lined up properly. As a result, crooked teeth can wear down prematurely or even chip away from everyday use.
Healthier Teeth and Gums– Straight teeth are easier to clean. Crooked teeth are more likely to suffer from problems like tooth decay, gum disease, and gingivitis.
Better Overall Health– If you have healthy gums and teeth, it can be an indicator of having good overall health. Inflammation caused by gum disease has been linked to other health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Straight teeth will also help you chew better which improves digestion.
Is Invisalign right for me?
Adults and older teens with mild to moderate misalignment are usually perfect cases for Invisalign. Invisalign is useful for correcting problems like gaps between your teeth, crowding, crossbites, overbites and underbites.
If you do choose Invisalign to straighten your teeth, you must remain dedicated to wearing your aligner at least 22 hours a day. Not wearing them as often as you should, could allow the teeth to shift back the way they were before treatment.
