Orthodontics can be very daunting. No matter how much your teeth might benefit from a straightening procedure or alignment, braces or headgear may not be the right choice for you.
Fortunately, there is rarely only one way to do things in the dental industry. Our office presents you with Invisalign, the transparent aligners which do all of the shifting, straightening, and adjusting of traditional orthodontia in a modern, wire-free way.
What are the Advantages of Invisalign?
First and foremost, Invisalign requires no regular adjustments. There are no wires, no brackets, and no rubber bands. In fact, there are fewer appointments in general. With Invisalign, the adjustments come in the form of a new, slightly modified aligner. Just take one out, put the next one in, and voilà. That’s all there is to it.
Wire braces often have the difficulty of being tough to clean around. Not so with Invisalign. The aligners are completely removable at any time, when needed. This makes them extremely easy to keep clean, and that applies to your own teeth as well.
In that vein, this easy removability is very convenient for events where traditional braces might hamper one’s ability. A concert, for example, or a sporting event. No need to fear what wire braces might do when confronted by a clarinet reed or a soccer ball to the face.
Even while doing these activities, Invisalign is extremely safe. You can exercise and socialize while wearing them with no danger or discomfort. In fact, due to the transparent polymer from which the aligners are made, most people will forget they’re even there. You might even forget, yourself. Invisalign really is effectively invisible.
The average time for traditional wire and bracket braces to do their thing is about two years. Invisalign can cut that in half. In only a year—or less, depending on your needs—you can have the straightened, perfect smile that was always waiting to come out.
