Although many adults wish for straighter teeth, they can’t imagine wearing metal braces. Now, Invisalign makes it possible for you to get your teeth straightened without all the wires and brackets.
Invisalign is nearly impossible to see. Most people will not be able to tell you are wearing the thin, clear, plastic trays. If you have a tendency to get cavities easily, then Invisalign could be perfect. The removable trays allow you to continue a normal dental hygiene routine as your teeth gradually straighten. You won’t have to deal with all the tightening and discomfort that generally follows with traditional braces.
Not only does Invisalign allow you to continue your normal brushing and flossing habits, but it allows you to continue to eat and drink whatever you normally would. Traditional braces generally mean cutting out things like popcorn, chewing gum, taffy and other sticky or crunchy substances. Since you remove the Invisalign trays every time you eat, you can continue to enjoy all the foods you do now, during treatment.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign works by using a series of thin, clear, plastic trays. These trays allow the teeth to be gradually moved into their proper position. The treatment with Invisalign usually does not take any longer than traditional braces and in fewer appointments. This makes it a great option for busy adults.
The series of trays will be created specifically for you, in order to bring your teeth in perfect alignment. This treatment will work to fix several different types of dental problems from mild to more severe.
Invisalign can help with:
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
- Cross bite
Is Invisalign Right For You?
Invisalign is a viable option for most people. You and your dentist will be able to determine together if this treatment is right for you.
You will gain a great confidence boost as you go through treatment. Watching your teeth straighten out before your eyes over the course of around a year is amazing.
Invisalign might be right for you if:
- You are looking for results for minor problems
- You are a teen or adult
- You will remember to wear the trays consistently
About How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Depending on how long you need to wear the clear aligners, the price can vary. It is generally not much more expensive than traditional braces, but with none of the drawbacks and all of the same perfect results. For many people, the cost is always worth getting a beautifully straight smile.
