The holidays are on the way and there will surely be lots of sweets to go around. Everyone likes having sweets and fun and being around people they know and love. Being able to show them a great smile could even make the holidays a little better.
When you know that your teeth have seen better days you tend to hide them. You are embarrassed to show them because they are not straight. This year you can do something about it and there is a way to keep it a secret – with Invisalign.
The Invisalign system of aligners will accomplish the same thing as braces. You will be able to get straight teeth and they can even be used to correct some dental problems such as gaps between your teeth.
Each aligner is made of clear plastic, which will let your teeth color show through. They are specially cut so that they will not cut into your gums and they are comfortable. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and they slowly move your teeth into alignment.
Teens and young people around Steiner Ranch, TX want straight teeth but they have a problem with “robot teeth.” They would prefer to get those straight teeth without everyone knowing about it. Many adults of all ages (including celebrities) are getting their teeth straightened because they can now do it invisibly.
The aligners are also much safer than braces if they are involved with some kind of sports. Being active in sports can easily lead to a broken wire or bracket. This can cause an injury and it is going to cost when you have to make an extra trip to see the dentist. Depending on the sport, braces may even prevent them from playing.
A strong advantage of the Invisalign system is that the aligners can be easily removed at any time. This greatly reduces the amount of time needed to clean teeth and around all the brackets and wire.
It also enables you to eat what you want when you want. No food is off-limits because you simply take them out to eat. When eating is finished, you simply brush and floss your teeth normally and put them back in.
Aligners also reduce the amount of time spent in a dentist’s chair. Since no adjustments need to be made of wires with the Invisalign system, it saves time. Fewer appointments need to be made but the Orthodontist will still need to check on the progress of tooth movement to ensure the goal is going to be achieved.
When going in for your first appointment, the first step will be to get a 3-D digital scan of your teeth. This scan enables each aligner to be custom-made to follow a plan to move teeth in a specific way. Before the order is sent, you will be able to see what your teeth will look like when the treatment is completed. Once the plan is approved, it will be sent directly to the manufacturer to make the aligners.
The Invisalign system can correct many problems when it comes to alignment. It can be used to correct problems with crowded teeth, a crossbite, underbite, overbite, open bite, and gaps between teeth. In more severe cases of misalignment, braces may be necessary.
A new smile can do wonders for your self-confidence. You will no longer need to hide your teeth. Once they are straight, you will be more confident around other people and be glad to show off your new pearly whites. Who knows? it may even lead to a promotion?
