Everyone wants a straight, beautiful smile, but traditional braces can be a hassle. The wires and brackets of braces can be uncomfortable, detracting from your smile. And, you can’t always enjoy your favorite foods while you have them. Thankfully, at DDS Family Dental, we offer Invisalign, an alternative to traditional braces that will fit conveniently into your lifestyle.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign helps to straighten your teeth through a series of clear aligners that are worn for a few weeks at a time. These aligners are removable and gradually shift your smile until your teeth are perfectly aligned. While undergoing treatment, it is important to wear your Invisalign aligners for about 23 hours each day. You can take them out to eat and drink, but make sure you brush your teeth thoroughly before you put them back in. Invisalign is equally effective for both adolescents and adults who prefer this practical alternative to outdated metal braces.
Why do I need Invisalign?
Uneven and crooked teeth can lower your confidence level and negatively affect your oral health. Misaligned teeth increase the possibility of food particles and plaque accumulation between teeth, which eventually increases the threat of developing gum disease. Invisalign is a convenient and easy way to eliminate these issues.
What are the advantages of Invisalign?
Invisalign is normally a quicker treatment plan than metal braces, depending on your dental needs. They also don’t distract from your beautiful smile while you are wearing them because they are almost undetectable. Invisalign is made from smooth plastic, making it much more comfortable overall than metal brackets and wiring. They are also convenient, removable and fit into your lifestyle.
