Would Invisalign Improve Your Smile?

added on: July 22, 2016

Are you tired of feeling insecure because of a smile that is misaligned? Teeth that are unevenly spaced can be a great source of embarrassment, but underbites, overbites and other alignment issues can also pose functional issues. Sufferers of misalignment can experience discomfort while chewing, and may be more likely to suffer from TMJ and other jaw-related issues, as well. Fortunately, your dentist may be able to help give you a more properly aligned and esthetically-pleasing smile, through the use of Invisalign treatment!

Clear Braces Perform Much Like Traditional Braces, But With Added Benefits

Much like traditional metal braces, Invisalign treatment can be used to help address a wide variety of alignment issues, such as an overbite, underbite or minor spacing between the teeth. These clear braces are made to move teeth into a more proper alignment, just like traditional braces, but they can do so more comfortably than metal braces and brackets, in most cases, and obviously more discreetly too.

  • Unlike metal brackets, which can scratch sensitive soft tissue, Invisalign relies on trays made of clear BPA-free plastic. Most patients find this material is less irritating than traditional braces, and less obvious also.
  • Because Invisalign braces are not highly recognizable, people can seek smile-enhancing treatment without the embarrassment of having to spend years wearing noticeable orthodontic gear.

Would Invisalign Treatment Work for You?

If you are unhappy with your smile’s alignment, either functionally or because of the embarrassment of an imperfect smile, why not ask your dentist if Invisalign treatment could help you?

Many alignment problems can be addressed effectively through Invisalign.
