Smile! What do you see when you look in the mirror?
If you’ve found yourself actually giving up on the idea of ever having the straight teeth you’ve always wanted (especially if you feel you are at an age where you don’t want to wear metal braces), the Hilldale Dental team believes Invisalign gives you other benefits to consider, while still on your way to straight teeth, and a great smile.
Invisalign is Comfortable
Invisalign’s smooth, plastic custom aligners are often more comfortable, and once you get used to wearing your aligners on a regular basis, you may find there’s very little pain. The wires and brackets of metal braces, often put an aching pressure on your teeth, gums, and jaw. You’ll also have to visit the dentist every four-to-six-weeks to have those wires tightened. But with Invisalign, you change your own aligners every few weeks as instructed.
Invisalign supports Oral Health
The Invisalign straightening trays are removable, and can be taken out to eat, floss, or brush your teeth without compromising the outcome. You also won’t have to give up your favorite foods. And if you are active in sports, you don’t have to worry about cuts to your lips or mouth as often happens with metal braces; which also demand strict oral care habits. You don’t want food to attach or stick to the brackets or wires, and lead to cavities.
Invisalign adds Confidence
There’s a cosmetic benefit to wearing Invisalign. The clear, barely noticeable aligners straighten your teeth, and improve the look of your smile. It often gives teens and adults the added confidence of knowing people will not be distracted by the metal braces on their teeth. Plus, the aligners can be taken out for any special occasion.
