A great smile can boost your confidence and improve the way you feel about yourself. It can also make your oral health easier, which could help you avoid a host of dental problems.
Straight teeth also mean a decrease in bacteria that causes mouth sores, bad breath, and other common dental issues. If you want a straighter smile without the drawbacks of traditional braces, Invisalign may be right for you.
Boost Your Confidence
A confident smile is one of the most powerful tools you can have in boosting your confidence. A beautiful grin can make you feel more attractive and successful in both your personal and professional life.
However, when your teeth are crooked or misaligned, it can have an effect on your self-esteem and confidence. Whether it is in school, at work or when meeting new people, a misaligned smile can make you feel self-conscious and uneasy.
Invisalign braces can help to increase your confidence in a variety of ways. First, your teeth will look more straight and you’ll be able to smile with confidence.
A properly aligned smile can also improve your speech. Some patients with lisps, whistling or other speech defects may begin to speak more clearly after their treatment is completed.
Better Oral Hygiene
Having a straighter smile not only makes you feel more confident, but it also helps keep your oral health in tip-top shape. That’s because misaligned teeth are more prone to developing cavities.
That’s because bacteria can build up on the parts of your mouth where it’s harder to brush and floss. It can cause bad breath, gum disease, and tooth decay if left untreated.
Invisalign clear aligners can improve your oral hygiene by making it easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Unlike traditional braces, you can remove Invisalign aligners to brush and floss as usual.
Invisalign treatment may also help to eliminate certain dental problems such as overbites, underbites, open bites, or other orthodontic issues that can lead to oral infections and complications. That’s because misaligned bites can put pressure on the jaw, cause pain or discomfort, and increase the wear of your tooth enamel.
If you’re in the market for a straighter smile, then invisalign is a great option. It works by shifting your teeth with custom-made trays that are designed to be practically invisible. The best part is that it’s relatively painless compared to traditional braces. Of course, your treatment will take time and you will need to visit the dentist about once every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. During this visit, you’ll also get a state-of-the-art iTero Element(r) scanner to show you exactly what you’re working with, so there are no surprises down the road.
Invisalign is a fantastic way to give you the confidence you deserve to be proud of your smile. The process will be slightly more difficult for some patients, but with the right steps, you can have a picture-perfect set of teeth in no time.
Less Frequent Visits
Invisalign smiles help you to avoid frequent trips to the dentist for adjustments or problems with metal braces. This reduces the risk of tooth decay, mouth sores, and gum disease that can have long-term consequences on your health.
In many cases, patients also experience fewer emergency visits to the dentist because of broken brackets, wires poking their teeth, or other issues. Because of this, it’s important to make sure that you’re able to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours every day and follow the instructions carefully.
To get started with Invisalign, we’ll take an impression of your teeth using a digital scanner. We can do this at our office or send it to an Invisalign lab where it is created into custom-made trays. These trays are then used to move the teeth gradually until they are straight and beautiful. Treatment time typically lasts between 3 and 8 months, depending on the patient’s needs.
