Maybe your crooked teeth have always bothered you, or maybe you’ve been told that having straighter teeth would help your jaw pain and help to keep your teeth healthy. Whatever the reason you’ve been considering orthodontics, you may be hesitating because of the thought of those ugly metal braces you remember the other kids wearing when you were in high school. The good news, though, is that, nowadays, you have other options besides metal braces!
Why Invisalign may be right for you
Read on for 4+ reasons why you should talk to your dentist about Invisalign today:
1. Invisalign straightens teeth by using clear, plastic trays that fit over your teeth. Your teeth are gradually moved into their ideal position, and you get a new tray about every 2 weeks. Because the trays are made of clear plastic, it is close to impossible for anyone to even tell you have them on.
2. You can enjoy your favorite foods and drinks without worrying about food getting stuck in your braces or causing damage to them. When you want to eat, you just take out your tray and enjoy your meal.
3. It is easy to take care of your teeth. Metal braces involve a lot of maneuvering around the brackets and wires when you are brushing and flossing, but with Invisalign, all you have to do is take the tray out for a good teeth cleaning.
4. Invisalign is much more comfortable than old-fashioned metal braces. There are no poking wires, brackets that rub against your cheek, or the discomfort that comes with the dentist tightening your braces.
Still not convinced that Invisalign is right for you? Don’t worry – at Arlington Dental Aesthetics and South Riding Smiles, you have more than one option for straightening your teeth. They offer a new-and-improved version of the old-fashioned metal braces, which are smaller and more comfortable. Clear braces are another option.
