Enjoy a Straighter Smile without Traditional Braces

added on: December 1, 2016

Do you feel embarrassed by your smile, because of misaligned teeth? From overbites and under bites to spaces and gaps between some of the teeth, what has stopped you from seeking orthodontic treatment, in the past? Are you worried about being the only adult in your office with visible metal braces? Worse, are you concerned that you’ll experience discomfort, and even problems chewing, while wearing traditional braces? Did you know that Invisalign clear aligner trays provide a more comfortable and discreet alternative to traditional orthodontic work. That means, with Invisalign’s help, you could straighten your smile, without the pesky side effects of spending years with metal in your mouth!

What Makes Invisalign Different?

Unlike traditional braces, which use a combination of metal and bands, to help realign the teeth, Invisalign treatment utilizes a series of custom-made clear aligner trays to help slowly shift the teeth into a straighter, more proper alignment. These trays can easily be changed out, which means less frequent visits to the dentist are required. They can also be removed in order to brush the teeth daily, and also to enjoy one’s meals. This makes for better dental hygiene throughout treatment, and also more comfort.

Who Can Benefit from Invisalign Trays?

Invisalign can be used to address many of the same alignment issues that braces correct. That said, Invisalign cosmetic treatment provides a number of benefits. The most obvious, perhaps, is the fact that the trays are not easily spotted, which means you don’t have to worry about feeling embarrassed by visible orthodontic gear.
