Dental braces have come a long way in the last 20 years. They are no longer as bulky and clunky as they once were. But a lot of people are still not comfortable wearing brackets, wires and bands in their mouth even if they badly need to have their teeth straightened. Fortunately, you don’t have to deal with braces if you want to straighten your teeth. That’s because you can now choose Invisalign.
Here at Advanced Dental Smile, we offer Invisalign, the better and more convenient alternative to traditional braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses clear aligners that you can remove anytime you need to. You’ll need to change your set of aligners every 2 weeks so your teeth will move to their desired position gradually. These aligners are comfortable to wear and you have the option to remove them when you eat and drink, or when you floss and brush your teeth.
Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign is quickly gaining popularity around the world because of the benefits it offers, including:
1. Less treatment time
Typically, Invisalign treatment will take 12 months to complete while traditional braces can take up to 24 months, maybe even longer. With Invisalign, you will need to see your dentist every 1-2 months so that they can check your progress and you’ll also be given a new set of aligners to ensure that your teeth will reach their ideal position. Take note however that the number of aligners to be given as well as the duration of treatment vary from one person to another.
As mentioned earlier, Invisalign utilizes clear aligners so people won’t easily notice them. Some won’t even know you’re wearing them at all. If you’re a working professional and you find the idea of wearing clunky braces embarrassing, then Invisalign is an excellent alternative. It won’t attract undue attention to your mouth.
3. Comfortable to wear
The material used in the aligners is a special type of plastic that is durable as well as comfortable. You won’t have to deal with metal in your mouth. Besides, you can just remove your aligners when you eat or brush your teeth.
Is Invisalign For Me?
Teens and adults alike can benefit greatly from using Invisalign. It is effective in treating teeth problems and can vastly improve your smile, boost your confidence and give you better oral health. Crowded teeth, gapped teeth and even complex problems like underbites, overbites and crossbites can be treated with Invisalign.
If you want to straighten your teeth but you don’t want metal wires, brackets and bands in your mouth, Invisalign may just be what you need. It’s unobtrusive and virtually invisible. Please call our office at (516) 825-3247 to know more.
