Do you regularly feel frustrated that you didn’t heed your parents or your orthodontist’s advice, as a teen, to wear your retainer long after you were done wearing braces? As adults, many people with once perfect smiles, find that their teeth have unfortunately shifted back out of formation, causing insecurity, once more about smiles that look overcrowded, oddly spaced, or simply misaligned. Fortunately, there is an alternative to heading back to the orthodontist for expensive and often embarrassing metal braces. Invisalign treatment could help you achieve your dream smile, again, with more comfortable and discreet clear trays.
Address Alignment Issues without the Braces
Whether you had orthodontic treatment as a child or teen, or never at all, many alignment problems can effectively be addressed with Invisalign treatment. Overbites, underbites, crowding and spacing are just a few of the issues Invisalign is often able to address.
To see if it is the right choice for you, schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist, who can examine your smile and then advise you accordingly.
Smile Proudly, Even During Treatment
Though the fact the trays are clear, and therefore nearly invisible, are the most obvious reason many patients prefer Invisalign treatment to traditional braces, there are actually a number of compelling reasons to consider Invisalign.
- Many patients find the clear aligner trays far more comfortable than metal braces. Since there is no metal there is no chance of scratching the sensitive gum tissue.
- The trays can actually be removed during meals, and for daily hygiene, allowing for more comfort while chewing, and also better dental care during treatment.
- Since the trays can easily be swapped out, there should be less dental visits required than would be for traditional orthodontia.
