Invisalign Clear Braces
If you’re looking for a straighter smile, you’re most likely in the process of evaluating your options. When you’re thinking about straightening your teeth, the first thing that often comes to mind is a set of clunky metal braces.
Although you’re undoubtedly looking forward to the day that you can look in the mirror and see a straight smile instead of a mouth full of metal, the 1 to 2 years of self-consciousness might not seem to be worth the outcome.
You may believe that traditional metal braces are the only option, however, this could not be farther from the truth. There are actually a number of drawbacks to metal braces, some of which are detrimental to your dental health.
That’s why our experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jason McDowell, of Wayzata Dental wants to show you a new way to straighten your smile with Invisalign®.
The Drawbacks of Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces have a number of drawbacks, and some of these can actually jeopardize your dental health. The drawbacks to traditional metal braces include:
- Restriction and a limitation of your diet due to messy eating
- More frequent appointments for adjustments
- Irritation to your gums and mouth
- A greater sense of self-consciousness
Several of these drawbacks can actually hurt your dental health, such as the fact that food can get stuck in your braces, which can actually lead to cavities and tooth decay. In addition, small nicks and cuts on your gums and in your mouth can further impede your dental health.
The Invisalign Alternative
The new alternative to traditional metal braces is Invisalign clear braces. The Invisalign system consists of a series of plastic straightening trays (called aligners) that you change out every two weeks. Over the course of time, these trays will gently re-align your teeth, giving you the straight, bright smile you deserve.
In addition, Invisalign offers a number of advantages to traditional metal braces. Invisalign is quickly becoming the standard in smile correction because they offer all of the benefits, and none of the drawbacks of traditional metal braces.
The advantages of Invisalign include:
- Removability, meaning that you can remove your trays at meal times, so you will never have to worry about messy eating.
- Absolutely no gum or mouth irritation.
- Invisibility so no one will ever have to know you are wearing them!
Clearly, Invisalign is the solution for persons who want straighter teeth. In addition, Invisalign is the perfect solution for working adults who want to straighten their smiles without any of the self-consciousness associated with metal braces.
Just think, you will be able to straighten your teeth and still leave the lasting impression of a beautiful smile while doing so.
