Do you frequently wish that you had worn braces as a teenager? Has misalignment of your teeth long caused you to feel insecure, even embarrassed? Alignment issues are common, as are other esthetic concerns. Fortunately, you no longer have to choose between noticeably misaligned teeth and spending months in often uncomfortable and certainly conspicuous metal braces, in an effort to straighten them. Invisalign treatment, which involves wearing a series of clear aligner trays, offers a discreet yet effective alternative to traditional braces, one that could leave you with the kind of beautiful smile you might have been dreaming about, without the annoyance of braces you may have long been avoiding!
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment works to achieve the same kind of end results of braces, straighter and more properly aligned teeth, but without many of the drawbacks that come along with metal braces.
For instance, many people find traditional braces uncomfortable, due to the metal involved. They can also make it difficult to chew comfortably, and food can get stuck in some of the teeth, causing embarrassment, as well. Of course, the embarrassment often associated with wearing braces, particularly for adults, is one of the biggest reasons people shy away from orthodontic treatment.
Fortunately, Invisalign helps to offer straightening and general smile enhancements without many of the frustrations associated with traditional orthodontic treatment.
Could Invisalign Treatment Help Your Smile?
Because the trays used during Invisalign treatment are made completely of BPA-free, clear plastic, they tend to be more comfortable than metal braces, and obviously less conspicuous, as well. They are also easily removed, which makes for more comfortable eating and easier dental hygiene, as well.
Best of all, for many patients, the trays are discreet, allowing for confidence even as the teeth are being straightened.
