Do you hate your smile? If do, you are not alone in your struggles. Numerous Americans, probably hundreds of thousands of Americans, feel ashamed about the appearance of your smile. This shame can be caused by gaps or misalignments in your teeth.
Maybe you’ve considered adult braces. If you have, you owe it to yourself to learn about the revolutionary Invisalign system. Many adults dislike the idea of traditional braces, because they are anxious or reluctant to have a mouth filled with metal braces. But Invisalign could be a solution that works for you.
In today’s blog post from Denise DiBona, DDS, LLC, in Red Bank, NJ, we’re going to give all the details on the tremendous and effective technology used by the Invisalign orthodontics system. This great technology offers numerous benefits, and is an easy to use procedure. Today, we want to share our excitement about Invisalign with you.
Invisalign Works Great for Older Teenagers and Adults
Invisalign can work for older teenagers or adults that feel embarrassed about their smile. Problems with your smile can leave you feeling anxious in public; it may even make you feel the need to cover your smile while eating or speaking. But we can fix those problems with Invisalign.
Invisalign is effective for many different dental problems. If you suffer from crooked or crowded teeth, Invisalign is effective as traditional metal braces at correcting these issues. If the alignment or placement of your teeth needs to be corrected, Invisalign could work great for you.
The Invisalign Revolution
Invisalign is a process that involves a series of easy and simple steps. We start by taking impressions of your mouth and teeth. We use this information to create a digital 3D model of your mouth. We can actually show you how your smile will look at the end of the Invisalign process; providing exact details of the teeth that will be straightened.
After we have created this 3D model, we provide you with a series of transparent aligners to wear throughout the day. These aligners gently but effectively correct all the spacing issues your teeth may have. Generally, you will wear each aligner for about two weeks. Afterwards, you’ll graduate to the next aligner. Invisalign can provide amazing results in about a year to a year and a half of time.
The Differences Between Invisalign and Traditional Braces
One of the biggest differences between Invisalign and traditional braces, is the appearance of the braces. Traditional braces have a noticeable appearance, and are constantly visible in your mouth. Invisalign is barely noticeable in your mouth.
Many adults fear how traditional braces will make them look. They fear that they will make them look immature, making it difficult to survive at the workplace. Invisalign’s system of transparent aligners are barely noticeable when they’re in your mouth.
Invisalign lets you correct the issues with your smile in privacy. No one has to know if you’re wearing your aligners or not. In addition, if you have to give a presentation or have a public speaking engagement, the aligners are removable. You can take them out before speaking without issue.
Many patients also find it easier to eat with Invisalign than with other braces. Traditional braces do limit some of the things you can eat. Chewy foods can become stuck in the wires and brackets. Other foods like well-done stars can knock the brackets off your teeth.
Invisalign doesn’t come with all of these restrictions. All you need to do is take out your aligners before you eat. This allows you to maintain your current dietary habits, and eat as you please. With Invisalign, you’re free from worrying about restrictions in your diet.
It can also be easier to maintain positive dental hygiene with Invisalign. Brushing and flossing is a bit more involved process with traditional braces, often requiring greater time and skill. With Invisalign, brushing and flossing is a breeze. You simply just remove the aligner, and contain with your normal brushing and flossing routine.
