Crooked, gapped, or overlapping teeth are the sort of smile issues people tend to correct in middle or high school with braces.
It’s not so bad at that age, since awkwardness and acne and braces are all just part of growing up, and many of your friends have mouths full of metal just like you.
No big deal, right?
But now? As an adult? With a career?
You don’t want to spend the next 18-24 months wearing metal braces to straighten your teeth!
You want a faster way to fix your smile, and Invisalign at Duffield Dentistry may be the way to do it!
Fix Your Crooked Smile Fast With Invisalign!
With this orthodontic treatment, instead of having metal brackets bonded to your teeth as they’re being pulled into place with wires, you wear a series of customized clear, removable aligners. Every couple of weeks, you switch to a new set of aligners, and in about a year’s time, you have straight, beautiful teeth!
Here are a few things you won’t have to go through with this method of treatment:
*You Won’t Be Inconvenienced*
Wearing standard braces is tricky because it’s supposed to solve a cosmetic problem, but could actually create an oral health problem. That’s because you have to alter your brushing and flossing routine and technique in order to ensure your teeth and gums are kept thoroughly clean despite the brackets and wires.
There’s also an issue with having to stay away from certain foods because they can get stuck in your braces or risk damaging them.
You don’t have to deal with any of that with Invisalign because the system uses custom, removable aligners that fit over your teeth and can be taken out when it’s time to brush, floss, and eat.
Adults love that Invisalign is convenient and hassle-free!
*You Won’t Look Like A Preteen*
Maybe you’re insecure enough about your crooked teeth that you’d consider going another couple of years with an unsightly smile because of dark, metal braces. You may look like a preteen, but hey, at least you’d know your smile will look great once those metal braces came off.
But why sacrifice your mature appearance if you don’t have to?
The clear aligners with this treatment are so hard to spot, it’s unlikely anyone will even notice you’re wearing them!
*You Won’t Be Uncomfortable*
The emotional discomfort of wearing braces beyond grade school is one thing.
The physical discomfort is another drawback of orthodontic treatment, no matter your age. Your lips and cheeks can be scraped, poked, and irritated by metal wires and brackets. The pressure after your wires have been tightened can leave you with an aching jaw and teeth for a few days.
And this can go on for two years or longer!
Clear aligners are plastic, smooth against the soft tissues in your mouth, and gentler in how they bring your teeth together into proper alignment.
Find Out If It’s Right For You!
Clear aligners have completely revolutionized orthodontics, especially for people who are in their late teens or older who aren’t interested in all the hassle or sacrifice traditional braces ordinarily demand. With Invisalign, you can run an important board meeting, walk confidently into a job interview, or go on that special date, all without the anxiety and embarrassment you’d otherwise feel if you had metal brackets and wires bonded to your teeth!
Set up your consultation to find out if this is the right orthodontic treatment for you. Dr. Duffield can evaluate your dental needs and determine if Invisalign is your fast way to a straight, beautiful smile.
