If your teeth have gaps or are not as straight as you would like for them to be, you probably have considered orthodontics to fix the problems. What’s holding you back? If you’re like many others, the reason you haven’t moved forward is because you don’t want to spend years in big, metal braces. You’ll look like a teenager! It would be impossible to feel attractive and respected this way.
Wait! Unsightly and painful metal braces are not the only way to get the alignment of your teeth. Thankfully, recent advances in dental care allows patients just like you to straighten their teeth without metal wires, brackets, and embarrassment. Invisalign is a discreet teeth straightening option, and one you should strongly consider. Invisalign technology uses clear plastic aligner trays to slowly move your teeth into their correct positions. Made of smooth plastic, they fit comfortably much the same way a mouth guard does, and they are unlikely to irritate your cheeks and lips the way metal braces can. Different teeth will have different requirements, but you can expect typically 20 to 30 sets of aligners.
There are so many benefits to choosing this form of orthodontics treatment. Thanks to Invisalign’s clear plastic trays, no one will know that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment unless you tell them. Since the trays are removable, you can clean your teeth and eat as you normally would. They are removable for other purposes too, like taking pictures or an occasional night out on the town.
Talk about a boost in confidence! Frequent smiling is an important indicator of confidence, one that people love to see. Invisalign can give you a straight, good-looking smile that you aren’t afraid to show off. This can drastically improve how you feel and how others see you.
A straight set of teeth is important for your appearance and your overall well being. The misalignment of teeth can lead to an improper bite, which can in turn cause a number of jaw complications. Common bite problems include an overbite, underbite, and crossbite. When the teeth grow too close together and displace each other, this makes it difficult to floss and brush properly. In this way, not having straight teeth can increase your risk of gum disease or tooth decay.
