Crooked teeth can lead to self-esteem and self-confidence issues, as well as contribute to other oral health problems. Some of you put off getting them straightened due to worries about the wires and brackets of metal braces being uncomfortable, inconvenient, and painful — as well as concerns about how being a “metal mouth” may affect your social life or work environment. Put it off no longer. Read on to find out about an “invisible” way to straighten your teeth.
Instead of brackets and wires, the Invisalign solution uses specially-designed, custom, removable trays to move your teeth into the desired position. As tooth movement progresses, new trays are fitted to continue the process. The time required to straighten crooked teeth can be cut by as much as half over traditional braces.
Besides taking less time, there are other benefits that the Invisalign system brings:
Invisalign may not be for everyone. It takes discipline. To achieve the best results, the trays need to be worn at least 22 hours a day, every day. And just like metal braces, treatment isn’t over when the straightening period is finished. Depending on your circumstances, you’ll be required to wear a retainer for a specified period for maintenance. Your teeth are an investment. You don’t want the time and money spent to be wasted by having teeth shift back!
