For many adults, who are unhappy with their smiles because of alignment issues, there is a pesky feeling that their chance for a straight smile has passed them by. It’s as though, by skipping out on wearing braces as a teenager, they somehow forfeited their right to ever have a smile they are proud to show off. Fortunately, Invisalign treatment makes it possible to conquer this fear, and to actually enjoy a straighter smile without the need for traditional braces. This means it is possible to achieve a more beautiful smile, without the embarrassments commonly associated with wearing metal brackets and braces, particularly as an adult!
Invisalign Can Help You Enjoy a Straighter Smile without the Embarrassment of Braces
Like traditional orthodontic treatment, Invisalign (which is considered cosmetic dentistry) can help correct a host of alignment-related issues, such as underbites, overbites, and other spacing issues. However, unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is entirely metal free, which is why it offers a number of benefits when compared to standard braces.
- First, there is no fear of being scratched or cut by metal, because the Invisalign trays are made only of BPA-free plastic.
- Secondly, this plastic is clear, which means most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing the trays. This makes treatment far more discreet and less embarrassing.
- Thirdly, the trays can actually be removed for eating, and to brush and floss the teeth daily, allowing for healthier smiles even throughout the treatment. Plus, there is no need to fear getting broccoli or popcorn stuck in the braces!
- Fourthly, because the trays can be swapped out easily, most patients enjoy fewer dental visits when going through Invisalign treatment than those that opt for traditional braces.
