The Invisalign Revolution
Adult braces don’t have to be scary, or even intimidating. If the thought of appearing at a work meeting with metal braces in your mouth has got you down, you’re not alone. Luckily, traditional metal wire braces aren’t the only option anymore.
At All Smiles Jacksonville, we are proud to office the Invisalign system of adult orthodontics at our Jacksonville, TX office. With Invisalign, you no longer have to live with misaligned teeth. Invisalign can straighten teeth and correct other issues, and Invisalign can do so in a manner that no one else even notices.
In today’s blog post, we want to tell you a little more about Invisalign. If you have misaligned teeth, this may be important information for you. Misaligned teeth don’t just look bad, they can actually cause a host of other dental problems. Misaligned teeth increase your risk of gum disease, as well as cavities. They are also more difficult to keep clean and can lead to bite problems.
So what do you do in this situation? Well, you could turn to the Invisalign system of adult braces. Unlike other types of braces, Invisalign doesn’t use any types of brackets or wires. Invisalign uses a system of clear, removable aligners to reposition your teeth.
These aligners are made out of high-quality materials, and fit perfectly over your teeth. They are transparent so no one will even notice that they’re in your mouth. That means you can correct issues with your teeth without worrying that people will think you’re immature for wearing braces.
Invisalign aligners can also be removed when needed, including at meal times. That means you can eat and drink with no restrictions to your diet. Traditional braces severely limit the types of foods you can safely eat. But with Invisalign, that’s no longer an issue.
The removable nature of the aligners also means that you can remove them before a big event. If you have a big presentation at work coming up, there’s no harm in not wearing the aligners for a couple of hours while you speak in public.
Put the benefits of Invisalign don’t end there. In general they’re far more comfortable than traditional braces. That’s because there’s no metal and wires there to scrape your gums. Plus, you don’t have to worry about other dental issues when you use Invisalign. Braces will often leave yellow spots where the brackets were placed. But not Invisalign!
The Invisalign system is simple and straightforward. We create a treatment plan for your teeth; this actually allows you to see what your teeth will look like after treatment with Invisalign. Then you wear each custom aligner for a couple of weeks; then you graduate onto the next aligner. You can see pretty amazing results within about a year.
Now is the time to say no to living with crooked teeth. At All Smiles Jacksonville in Jacksonville, TX, we want you to have a smile you can be proud of. So give us a call at 903-625-9297 to schedule an appointment.
