Why Clear Aligners?
An easy, confident smile can boost your appearance more than almost anything else that you can do. The best part of a smile is how quickly it can be returned to you when you share it, but for nearly 4.5 million Americans who are actively using dental braces to straighten their teeth, crooked teeth are a major cosmetic concern that can have them hesitate about flashing their pearly whites. However, conventional braces can be both uncomfortable and unsightly, and for many adults, it simply isn’t an option for a variety of personal reasons. For these individuals, Elite Dental of Natick is happy to offer Invisalign® Clear Aligners. A more subtle, discreet option, Invisalign® is a great choice for many people who desire a straight smile but don’t want to endure a mouth full of metal to get it.
Fast Facts about the Benefits of Choosing Invisalign®
Many people admit that they want a straighter smile, but they don’t want to walk around with a mouth full of visible brackets and wires. That’s where Invisalign® steps in. Using two clear, thermoplastic trays, Invisalign® is a great choice for someone who wants a straight, beautiful smile without advertising to the world that they’re getting their teeth fixed.
There are several advantages to choosing Invisalign®, as well, in addition to their being a subtle choice. For instance, unlike traditional metal braces, you don’t have to worry about getting superficial cuts and scratches on the inside of your mouth and cheeks. Dental exams for adjustments tend to be quicker since we’re not tightening your wires. The trays are custom fit to your mouth, making them a much more comfortable choice for you.
Invisalign® is also an exceptional choice for people with lifestyle constraints. Nobody wants to have to be ashamed to have their picture taken or feel like they’re not being taken seriously at work. Invisalign® is also easier to keep clean when compared to conventional braces since you do not have to floss around your brackets. This can help reduce your risk of cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay. You can also take them out briefly for eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing, making them quite convenient overall.
Another benefit of Invisalign® is how fast it is. While conventional metal braces may require you to wear them for up to five years, Invisalign® is much quicker. For many of our patients, they may be done with their straightening program in as little as a year. Though it’s important to note that some patients may take a year and a half or longer for the Invisalign® process to be completely effective. As a bonus, the entire process of Invisalign® is completely computerized, which means that we can show you a sneak peek of your final results, so you know what to expect in the end!
If your teeth are crooked or unevenly spaced, and you’re feeling embarrassed and self-conscious about your smile, you may be a good candidate for Invisalign® Clear Aligners.
