Wanting a beautiful smile you feel confident sharing with the world is something many people desire. However, being genetically gifted with that naturally dazzling smile isn’t always in the cards. Thanks to the most advanced orthodontic treatment available today, the Invisalign® clear aligning system can deliver what genetics didn’t give you — perfect teeth.
Here at Silver Lake Dentistry, in Raymore, Missouri, Joshua Whitford, DDS and Jessica Whitford, DDS make it possible for teens and adults to correct a variety of common orthodontic problems easily and with minimal disruption to their busy lives. Here are five reasons our patients love Invisalign, and so will you.
1. Like the name implies, they’re practically invisible
Made from the patented SmartTrack® material, Invisalign clear aligners are strong enough to gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment, yet are barely noticeable in your mouth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are clear dental trays that are custom-made for your teeth.
When you have the aligners in your mouth, all you see is your own teeth, rather than metal and wires. So, whether you’re at work, school, or even a social function, you can straighten your teeth and nobody will even notice you’re wearing an orthodontic appliance.
2. Treatment can take up to half the time as traditional braces
This is good news for those who are anxious to have a more perfect smile. In addition to being nearly invisible, Invisalign works quickly to move your teeth into their desired position. You wear your aligners 20-22 hours a day, changing each set of aligners every 1-2 weeks as your dentist instructs.
Treatment is based on your individual needs, but you can potentially get the straight teeth you’ve always wanted in less time than you ever thought possible.
3. Invisalign works for most common orthodontic problems
Perhaps you thought the Invisalign system only works for people who have minor orthodontic problems, but that’s certainly not the case. Invisalign clear aligners work for nearly every type of orthodontic issue, including simple and complex cases. Some of these include:
- Crooked or crowded teeth
- Unevenly spaced teeth
- Overbite and underbite
- Open bite
During your consultation, our team assesses your teeth and explains how Invisalign can work for you.
4. Eat all your favorite foods without worry
This might be many of our patients’ favorite thing about the Invisalign system. You don’t have to worry about loosening brackets or breaking wires with crunchy or chewy foods. Instead, you can eat all your favorite foods without worry. That’s because Invisalign aligners are removable. You take them out to eat and drink, so you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in them.
Simply brush your teeth after eating, then pop your aligners back into your mouth until your next meal. It’s that easy.
5. Maintaining good oral hygiene while you straighten your teeth is a breeze
For the same reason you can still eat all your favorite foods, Invisalign also makes it a breeze to brush and floss your teeth during your entire orthodontic treatment. Remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. No need to worry about brushing around brackets or flossing with wires in the way.
Simply remove your aligners to proceed with your at-home dental hygiene routine, or when you have an appointment for a regularly scheduled professional cleaning.
Are you ready to transform your smile in a way you may never have dreamed possible? Invisalign is your clear choice for orthodontic treatment, in every sense of the word.
