Have you thought that straighter teeth may improve your smile? Many people are hesitant to seek treatment because they believe traditional metal braces are their only option.
While that may have been true in the past, today, another excellent option is available for you: Invisalign! Invisalign is a modern, wire-free alternative to traditional braces that can bring your teeth back into beautiful, healthy alignment without conspicuous metal wires and brackets.
Invisalign is one of the most popular brands of clear aligners, making them an excellent straightening option if traditional metal braces are just not right for you! Here are just five of the best reasons to consider Invisalign if you have been dreaming about a straighter smile!
1. More Discreet!
Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth, clear, and durable plastic that is virtually invisible, which means that often the only one who know you are wearing them is you! Unlike the immediately noticeable metal brackets and wires of traditional braces, your Invisalign aligners are designed to be almost transparent as they gently straighten your smile.
2. Fewer Restrictions!
Invisalign aligners are worn for a minimum of twenty-two hours a day, but unlike traditional braces, you can remove them to eat or drink. With Invisalign, following your regular dental cleaning routine is easy.
You simply remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would, meaning that you can clean hard-to-reach places that might be inaccessible with traditional braces. With Invisalign aligners, there are none of the food restrictions that come with traditional metal braces, like bagels, popcorn, nuts, and vegetables like carrots and corn on the cob.
Because you remove your aligners during meals or when having a snack, you can eat whatever you like and then simply clean your teeth and replace the aligners.
3. More Comfortable!
The smooth plastic of your Invisalign aligners makes them far more comfortable to wear than the hard metal wires and brackets of traditional braces. Your aligners protect the soft tissue on the inside of your mouth from the painful rubbing and minor cuts that metal braces can cause.
Your aligners are changed at home every two weeks. Because of the gentle way that Invisalign gradually straightens your teeth, you don’t have to worry about the discomfort and inconvenience of multiple trips to the dentist to tighten metal braces.
4. Customized For You!
When you come into Merry Dental for Invisalign treatment, we thoroughly evaluate your smile and dental health goals to create a comprehensive treatment plan to meet your individual needs. Prior to treatment, we take a full digital scan of your mouth.
Using the advanced Invisalign technology, we then create custom aligners that are perfectly fitted for you. The Invisalign technology can also show you a complete 3D image of the expected results of your Invisalign treatment.
That means you can see the fantastic results that Invisalign can achieve before your treatment starts!
5. Effective Treatment in Less time!
While each case is different, Invisalign aligners are usually able to give you a beautiful, straighter smile in six to eighteen months, depending on your smile goals. In comparison, on average, straightening treatment with traditional braces requires at least twenty-four months to show results and, in some cases, requires even longer treatment times.
When followed up by the regular use of a retainer worn overnight, the results of Invisalign can last a lifetime! With proper care and regular dental health visits, your Invisalign treatment will result in a long-lasting, beautiful smile that can boost your confidence and inspire you to smile more!
You deserve a smile you love, and we can help make that happen with Invisalign at Merry Dental!
