While we still offer classic metal braces at our Red Bank, NJ dentist’s office, we also feature an alternative orthodontic treatment that is quick, effective, and non-invasive. It’s called Invisalign. This is a forward-looking system for shifting teeth into proper position, and Dr. DiBona has found that there are many advantages to doing it this way. That’s why, today, we want to give you our top 5 reasons for trying Invisalign. When you are finished reading, be sure to get in touch to schedule your consultation (the number to call is 732-945-5343).
1. This Treatment Is Discreet!
Dr. DiBona knows that unwanted attention can be a bad thing. With Invisalign, no one will be gawking at the construction zone in your mouth. That’s because this orthodontic technique makes use of clear (nearly invisible) plastic aligners to move your teeth into better position. There won’t be any comments, questions, or nicknames either.
2. The Gear Is Removable!
Remember: after you have standard metal braces placed in your mouth, there is no way to take a break, until your treatment is completed after 2-3 years. You just have to deal with it.
In this respect, Invisalign aligners are different. You can take them out to eat, to snap selfies, and any other time, so long as they stay in place for the majority of each day. We can talk about specifics when you are here for your consultation.
3. No Major Lifestyle Disruptions!
While using Invisalign, you won’t have to schedule time away from your job to get orthodontic adjustments each month. Rather, you get to help manage the process by switching out your aligners for the next ones in the series (every two weeks or so). You do this in the comfort of your own home.
Besides, you won’t need to keep special tools on-hand, or waste time shopping for food that doesn’t get trapped in your metal wires and brackets. None of those problems will apply to you.
4. Your Aligners Will Be Comfortable!
This one is important: Invisalign aligners won’t cause pain the way that traditional braces sometimes do. They are more like a mouthguard in the way that they rest comfortably over your teeth. That means you won’t need to rely on waxes to form a protective barrier over your soft tissues because there won’t be any bleeding, sores, or discomfort whatsoever.
5. Your Smile’s Transformation Is Quick!
Once treatment is complete, your new and improved smile will be as good or better as metal braces would have given you with one big difference: you won’t have to wait 2-3 years to enjoy the results. It only takes about 12 months, depending on your situation.
Full disclosure: Invisalign is not the best solution for all patients, so you will definitely need to schedule that consultation with Dr. DiBona to find out for sure.
