Although traditional braces have become more common among both teens and adults over the last few decades, it can still be a challenging experience. Imagine achieving a beautiful, healthy, straight smile without the challenge of traditional braces. As a leader in lifelong health, Greentree offers an orthodontic solution loved by teens and adults. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners to help teeth gradually shift into place. Here’s why Greentree patients prefer the Invisalign® experience:
Our appearance plays a big role in how we perceive ourselves. Traditional braces, although sometimes necessary for more serious alignment issues, may make both young and old self-conscious about their smiles. With Invisalign’s clear and virtually invisible aligners, patients can achieve beautifully straight teeth without metal brackets and wires.
2. No Limits on Activities
With Invisalign®, patients may engage in athletic and musical activities that traditional braces may alter. Patients can play sports without fear of getting a cut lip or a bloody mouth from their wire braces. Playing certain musical instruments can also be a struggle with traditional metal braces, but Invisalign® removes any barrier to teens and adults becoming great musicians.
3. No Limits on Food
Unlike food restrictions that may accompany traditional braces, removable aligners allow patients to eat anything at anytime. Simply remove the aligners, eat what you want and replace the aligners when finished.
As anyone who has experienced traditional braces will attest, they can be uncomfortable at times. Wires and brackets may push into the front or sides of the mouth. Broken wires may cause bleeding. Invisalign® is a comfortable solution because each aligner is custom-designed to fit precisely over the teeth as it puts gentle pressure on the teeth to move them into place. At Greentree, we always make patient comfort a priority.
5. Ease of Healthy Brushing and Flossing
Removable aligners allow brushing and flossing to continue normally without the special care needed with traditional braces. Simply remove the aligners, perform your regular oral hygiene tasks, and put the aligners back in place. At Greentree, we can help you discover a beautiful, healthy, straight smile with the orthodontic solution provided by Invisalign®.Contact us today to learn more about how Invisalign® works for both teens and adults.
