5 Major Perks Of Straightening Teeth With Invisalign
The phrase “You’ve got to break a few eggs to make an omelette” is typically used to stress that sometimes compromises have to be made along the way to achieving a certain goal. But if you don’t want to compromise when it comes to straightening your teeth and you’d prefer an alternative to metal braces, call Advanced Dental Concepts 916-945-9985 for an Invisalign consultation!
- Invisalign and ClearCorrect, both of which use a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually get your teeth in the straight, ideally aligned position you want
- Traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires to apply pressure to your teeth over the course of approximately two to three years in order to straighten them
- Incognito™ braces (by 3M), which work just about identically to traditional braces but the metal brackets and wires are attached to the backs of your teeth on the side that your tongue is
- Six Month Smiles, which, as their name suggests, straightens teeth in about six months because it only focuses on moving the teeth that show when you smile
So you can make the best decisions when it comes to getting the gorgeous, flawless grin you’ve always wanted, we will review your options with you and answer any questions you have. We’re happy to go into as much detail as you need. All of the orthodontics options we offer could be a great fit for you depending on the current state of your smile and your end-result and lifestyle goals.
Plus, if you have other aesthetic concerns for your smile, we can even combine an orthodontic treatment with some of our other cosmetic services so you can get a full smile makeover. For example, some patients like to brighten their pearly whites with a professional teeth whitening treatment once their chompers are straightened.
Frequently dental insurance won’t cover the cost of treatments that they consider unnecessary. But if you’re feeling self-conscious about your appearance, a cosmetic upgrade could make a huge difference for your quality, so we don’t want that to stand between you and the services you want. We accept a variety of payment options to make things a little less financially stressful.
We also don’t want time constraints to stand between you and the gorgeous smile you’ve always wanted to achieve. Instead of offering the nine-to-five schedule you’re likely used to, we shift our office hours slightly two days a week so we can open extra early at 6:00 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Reach out to us for an early appointment before your day gets under way!
Get The Straight-Toothed Smile You Want, The Way You Want
All of the orthodontics options we offer could be worth considering because they all have their uses and their advantages. But a lot of our patients choose to use clear aligners to straighten their teeth for a variety of reasons. Read on below to learn a little bit about five major perks of using Invisalign.
The Aligners Are Nearly Invisible & Discreet
Because they’re made out of clear plastic instead of unsightly metal, our aligner systems are very difficult to notice when worn. But it’s not just the transparency that makes them so discreet. Your aligners will be made specifically for your teeth and fit very snugly. You may even forget that you’re using them when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror!
Obviously, because our clear aligners are so difficult to notice, you won’t have to feel self-conscious about having a bunch of metal in your smile while using them. You’ll be able to work toward getting the straight-toothed grin you’ve always wanted without temporarily sacrificing your confidence in the process.
The Aligners Are Removable
While the aligners are very difficult to notice as mentioned above, some people love that you can get ultimate peace of mind that no one will notice them by actually taking them completely out of your mouth for special occasions. As long as you wear your aligners for approximately 20 to 22 hours a day, you’ll still be able to straighten your teeth as planned.
But the cosmetic factor is only one great facet of being able to remove your aligners. Traditional braces also limit your diet somewhat and make it more difficult to clean your teeth. But because you can take your aligners out, you’ll have full dietary freedom and won’t have to use special techniques to brush and floss as you usually do.
The Smooth Plastic Is Very Comfortable
While most patients have an overall positive experience using braces, they can be a little uncomfortable because the metal brackets and wires create an irregular surface on the inside of your mouth. Some patients even suffer minor dental injuries if they bump their mouth somehow while using their braces.
In contrast, our aligner systems are made from very smooth plastic that doesn’t jut out from the surfaces of your teeth. The feel of the inside of your lips and cheeks against your teeth will feel normal and comfortable.
You’ll See Your Progress Clearly
Because your aligners will be smooth and removable, you’ll be able to see just what your smile looks like as your teeth become straighter and straighter. Braces, on the other hand, obstruct your view of your teeth and gums. You may even be surprised to find some stains or other cosmetic flaws once your braces are removed. You won’t have to worry about that with clear aligners!
The Aligners Work Quickly
Depending on your particular case, there’s a good chance that we’ll be able to get you the straight-toothed smile you want in as few as twelve months. That’s about half the time that traditional braces usually take! You’ll also save time by having to maintain fewer dental appointments during your treatment because we won’t need to tighten or adjust your braces.
