Years ago, dental braces meant food restrictions, multiple visits to the dentist, tightening of wires, sore cheeks and occasionally a poked tongue due to a loose wire. That was then; now with new advancements in orthodontics, most people seeking to straighten their teeth do not need to undergo the discomfort and inconvenience of metal braces. Invisalign clear aligners make the ordeal of metal braces a thing of the past for many orthodontic issues.
Invisalign is an alternative to metal braces, giving you beautiful results without all the hassle. Smooth plastic aligners are placed on your teeth to gently move them into a predetermined position. These plastic trays are changed out every two weeks or so over the course of your treatment. Most people will not even realize you have the aligners on. Invisalign is a discreet way to get your teeth straightened. It is also a more comfortable solution to misaligned teeth.
The plastic aligners are removable so you can continue to eat your favorite foods and keep up with your regular oral hygiene. There are no wires to adjust and no brackets to worry about. The clear plastic is hardly visible so your friends will most likely not even know you are getting your teeth straightened. A digitally produced after picture will show you what you can expect to look like at the end of treatment.
Teenagers can be very self-conscious when it comes to their smile. Invisalign Teen is perfect for the teenager concerned about having a mouth full of metal. Teens love the fact that the aligners are clear so no one will notice that they are being worn. Your teen can enjoy popcorn, candy, pizza and all the other foods that teens love to eat but often have to forgo with traditional metal braces. Flossing and brushing will not be a problem either.
Invisalign aligners help you maintain good oral health. Since you are able to continue with prescribed oral hygiene practices there is less likelihood of tooth decay and gum disease. So if you or your teen are considering getting your smile straightened out, contact Pearl Dental Care and let us help you achieve that beautifully straight smile.
