Plenty of people wish they had straight teeth.
But not everyone is ready to jump at the chance to wear braces to make it happen.
Especially not older patients.
And who can blame them?
That’s why you should visit Denise DiBona, DDS, LLC to explore more discreet alternatives to traditional metal braces to get the smile you want without all the fuss and sacrifice! Forget everything you thought you knew about orthodontics. It’s time to go back to basics!
Going Back To Basics About Orthodontics
Among the orthodontic strategies we provide in Red Bank, including preventive measures for younger kids, there’s one that has everyone really talking.
Invisalign is a different kind of system that’s basically revolutionized orthodontics.
Sure, conventional braces work, and that’s why they’re still used by dentists everywhere.
They’re more suited to patients who have more complex bite problems because they use brackets and wires to put pressure on your teeth to pull them together into the right position.
But if you have slightly crooked teeth, small gaps, mild overcrowding, or minor bite issues, you may want to consider another way.
Invisalign is an effective solution, and we can use digital imaging and other tools to evaluate your needs and decide if it’s right for you!
If it is, you’ll be put on a treatment plan comprised of a series of custom mouth trays, crafted from clear plastic material that fits over your teeth like a mouthguard. Every couple of weeks, you switch to the next set in your custom series until you’re finished!
The best part? You can barely see them!
Invisalign Is Great For Teens & Adults!
There’s nothing at all wrong with going the traditional route with conventional braces.
After all, they get the job done, especially with more complicated bite alignment problems.
There’s just one big drawback many older teens and adults don’t want to deal with – the metal brackets and wires.
If you’re already self-conscious about your teeth, it’s overwhelming to think about making it harder for yourself to feel comfortable out in public. And with braces, you’re looking at anywhere from 12 to 18 months, or even longer, to complete your treatment.
That’s a long time for someone who’s already paid their dues through the awkward phase of adolescence!
This is why older teens and working adults prefer Invisalign.
Not only can you see results in a year or less, but the aligners are nearly invisible, so if you don’t mention it to anyone, it’s highly unlikely they’ll even notice you’re wearing them! This will make you feel much more relaxed and confident in social and professional settings.
You also don’t have to worry about changing your lifestyle with Invisalign. Since you can take the aligners out, you’re free to eat what you want and maintain the same brushing and flossing routine you always have.
It doesn’t get much easier than that to straighten your teeth!
