We had huge cell phones that were bulky and heavy. Cars were boat-like and massive. Computers filled an entire room and TVs weren’t even close to being slim enough to hang on the wall. The worlds evolving. We’re condensing. Things are becoming high-tech, easier to use, and in some cases, basically invisible. We see the same happening in dentistry.
Traditional braces are what we commonly see on our colleagues growing up or in the movies of our favorite flicks. These small, metal brackets have represented the future of a straighter smile for years! With the amazing results and simplicity of Invisalign, will we ever notice if someone is wearing braces again?
What’s the Difference Between Traditional Braces and Invisalign? 🧐
Besides the fact that traditional braces aren’t removable, and they’re clearly visible, there are other reasons why Invisalign may be a better fit for you or your children.
- Less Visible
- Removable Liners – You can eat what you want!
- Maintain Oral Hygiene Much Easier
– You Can Brush & Floss Like Normal
- Hygiene Appointments are Easier
- Fewer Visits to the Dentist – More Convenient for you, but we’ll miss you!
- Commonly Shorter Duration to Wear Them
– As long as you stick to our recommended guidelines!
Which Dental Issues Will Invisalign Treat?
It’s known that Invisalign will provide you that beautiful, straight smile you’ve been longing for. However, these aren’t the only issues it’ll help correct. Invisalign will help with:
- Open Bites
- Deep Bites
- Excessive Overjets
- Mild Underbites
The Transparent Facts
Let’s be clear. Invisalign is AWESOME! There are no wires, elastics, or brackets – just your teeth and its custom-made removable aligner. Every two weeks you’ll replace your set of aligners with a new pair. You or your teenager will wear the aligners for 22 hours a day, your teeth will shift into its proper place while not intruding into your lifestyle.
Some do not want to think about having metal brackets glued onto their teeth. Invisalign essentially allows more privacy as you reach your oral health goals. In most cases, those nearby won’t even recognize you’re wearing them! Overall, straightening your teeth not only can provide you with a boost of confidence, but it has a significant overall impact on your oral health.
Keeping It Straight With You
The success of Invisalign is completely up to you. We will provide you with the proper recommendations and guidelines, but it’s up to you to follow them. Before making this investment for yourself or your child, think about if you’re ready to make the commitment to caring for them properly and giving them the proper maintenance.
Is Invisalign Worth it?
Set your mouth up for success. By aligning your teeth properly, you’ll be saving money over your lifetime. It’s an investment worth every penny! There’s no denying that saving money is inevitably all of our goals, but straightening your smile can do so much more for your overall confidence. Invisalign reports after conducting a national survey:
- 92% of adults who have straightened their teeth have straightened
- 8/10 adults have said straightening is one of the most important treatments they have ever done for themselves.
- 8/10 adults agree teeth whitening has given them the confidence to do something they could never have done before their teeth were fixed.
