A lot of people want to straighten their smiles, but want anything to do with traditional metal braces. Many of our patients at Greentree Dental Group have heard about Invisalign invisible braces, but still want to know whether or not Invisalign is right for them. Believe it or not, Invisalign can treat a wide variety of tooth misalignment needs, and is one of the best options for our patients. Here are some excellent reasons why our patients choose Invisalign:
Fewer, shorter appointments
Traditional metal braces need to be adjusted every month or so, and can be uncomfortable. Invisalign works by wearing a set of clear alignment trays that are changed out every few weeks, progressing treatment to the next phase. Because no adjustments are needed, several trays can be sent home at a time with each patient, and we don’t need to make any adjustments. Greentree Dental Invisalign patients only need to see us for a progress check up every now and then to pick up their new trays.
There are no dietary restrictions
Most orthodontic patients really have to watch what they eat, because certain foods can break or get stuck in their braces. Invisalign braces are completely removable, so they’re taken out during meals and put back on when you’re done eating. This means you can eat anything you want, whenever you want!
No one will realize you’re wearing braces
Invisalign braces really do look invisible. Each alignment tray is made of clear material that people won’t be able to see when you talk or smile. It’s safe to bet that they’ll never even know you’re wearing Invisalign unless you tell them and stop for them to look. Adults and patients of all ages love the flexibility that Invisalign offers, and can allow working professionals to complete treatment without feeling like they’re too mature to be wearing braces. Correcting tooth misalignment doesn’t just affect the way your teeth look when you smile; it also reduces the risk of tooth decay, premature wear, and gum disease.
