Have you always wished that you could have a straighter, more attractive smile? Many adult patients visit Diamond Spring Dental Associates seeking a discreet solution to their crooked teeth. While effective, we find that a number of adult patients are not interested in being fitted for traditional metal braces. Metal braces can often make adult dental patients self-conscious during social and professional situations.
In addition to the cosmetic challenges of traditional metal braces, metal braces can also be somewhat painful for adult patients or cause uncomfortable irritation to the mouth over time. If you’d like to straighten your smile in a comfortable and discreet way, Invisalign may be the perfect treatment option for you.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is a custom made product that works to gently, but effectively straighten your smile over time. Invisalign works by using a series of carefully calibrated, durable plastic trays that guide your teeth into alignment. Rather than being fitted for metal brackets and wires, you will be fitted for a snug, but crystal clear tray that fits over your teeth. Instead of painful tightening of wires and brackets every few weeks, you’ll receive a new tray that will continue to guide your teeth in the right direction.
What are the Advantages of Invisalign?
The Invisalign system presents many advantages to traditional metal braces. These advantages are often what make Invisalign the straightening method of choice for adult orthodontic patients.
Some of the advantages of Invisalign straightening include:
- Discreet straightening. Because Invisalign trays are snug fitting and crystal clear, even your most observant friends won’t realize that you are straightening your teeth. You can be comfortable with your smile throughout the entire straightening process, including in social and professional situations.
- Comfortable straightening. Because there are no metal wires or brackets to contend with, you can feel comfortable while you are straightening your teeth. Invisalign trays will not scratch the inside of your mouth or create sores where metal braces can poke you in the gums and mouth. Also, there are no painful tightening procedures to endure.
- Easy cleaning. You must wear your Invisalign trays for most hours of the day in order to optimize your straightening capacity. However, unlike metal braces, you can remove your Invisalign tray to clean your teeth. This will not only make your life easier but will also keep your teeth healthier during your straightening period. You can floss easily without missing important parts of your teeth and gums due to metal braces.
