Crooked teeth or gaps in your smile can throw your look off, which ultimately impacts your self-confidence in social and professional settings. That pretty much means that a bad smile will be bad for your career too. But did you know that having problematic teeth can also adversely affect your overall health? It’s true! That’s one of the reasons why our innovative dental practice is a leader in helping both teens and adults overcome their smile imperfections using a short-term orthodontics program called Invisalign.
Today we’re going to spend a little time telling you more about that increasingly popular treatment, Invisalign, including some of the benefits. Keep reading and then be sure to call us at 586-210-6828 to request your clear aligners consultation appointment at our Clinton Township dental office. We’ll make it easy to change your smile and your life.
The biggest complaint we hear around regular orthodontic treatments, even though they are still valuable to many patients, is that they often seem out of place in your mouth, especially with all that metal.
This is not ideal for adults who would rather not have to wear distracting brackets or wires on their teeth. Luckily, with an Invisalign treatment the trays are made from clear plastic. In most instances, your friends and co-workers will never even know that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment, unless you decide to clue them in.
No Fixed Appliances
Most people don’t want to deal with fixed appliances on their teeth. It makes eating certain foods difficult and cleaning a real challenge. With Invisalign, however, you can remove the appliances whenever you want to eat or clean your teeth. Full disclosure: you will need to wear the aligners for 20+ hours a day to make sure your treatment stays on track.
Wire tightenings are intense and the wires and brackets can poke your mouth. Invisalign doesn’t have any wire adjustments, rather tray changes. You’ll get a new set of aligners every two weeks until you reach the end of treatment. And you swap them out on your own at home.
Invisalign is not for everyone, and that’s not a bad thing. It is definitely a great way to treat milder orthodontic treatments, especially crooked or gapped teeth. Rather than needing two to three years to correct your teeth, we can change your smile in about 12 to 18 months with Invisalign.
Call To See What Changing Your Smile Means
During your first Invisalign consultation, we’ll be able to show you what your teeth will look like during treatment and when the process wraps up. And we’ll explain the ins and outs thoroughly.
