5 Real Advantages Of Clear Aligners [BLOG]
Having crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth feel like an embarrassing smile flaw, but so can having a mouth full of metal for the several years it would take a traditional treatment using braces to transform your troubled teeth into a gorgeous grin.
The good news is that, if you are in need of an orthodontic solution, we can deliver quick results through an alternative orthodontic treatment called Invisalign.
Keep reading to hear more about the real advantages of Invisalign clear aligners. Then, all you’ll have to do to get started is call us at 214-360-7261, to request your consultation at our Dallas, TX dentist’s office.
1. Our Clear Aligners Are Subtle!
There won’t be any attention drawn to your mouth while wearing Invisalign clear aligners. That’s because with Invisalign there isn’t any metal involved. The system relies upon clear (nearly invisible) plastic aligners to move your teeth into better alignment. This means no gawkers and no awkward conversations.
2. Aligner Trays Are Removable!
Once braces go in, they have to stay there for the duration of your treatment. Not so with Invisalign aligners. You can take them out for meals, cleaning your mouth, and any other time that strikes your fancy. The fine print: you do need to wear them for 20+ hours each day in order to keep things moving forward. But having the option of taking a break is a big advantage.
3. Nothing Changes But Your Smile!
There is no metal. No wires. No brackets. So, you won’t have to shop for non-special foods or invest in strange tools for cleaning. You also won’t have to waste time on getting in-office orthodontic adjustments along the way. Instead, you guide the process by switching out your aligners for the next ones in the preset series (this happens every two weeks).
4. Orthodontic Aligners Are Comfortable!
Aligners are kind of like a mouthguard in the way that they rest comfortably over your teeth. So, you won’t need to rely on waxes to form a protective barrier over your soft tissues. With your gentle orthodontic gear there won’t be any bleeding, sores, or discomfort to work through. We certainly can’t say as much about classic metal braces, effective though they may be.
5. The Transformation Happens Fast!
Invisalign clear aligners allow you to enjoy results in only about 12 months time. Braces would take 2-3 years to have the same effect. So, what are you waiting for?
