We recognize at Texas Dentistry of Mesquite that traditional metal braces are not necessarily for everyone. Sure, they provide many benefits to those with particularly severe cases of misalignment, crooked teeth, and uneven bites, but they also come with a fair number of setbacks. For example, they are exceedingly visible in your smile and force you to change many of your daily habits. With Invisalign’s clear aligner system, you don’t have to make these compromises just to make improvements to your smile’s appearance and your oral health. To learn more about the benefits of Invisalign, call our office for an in-depth consultation!
Every pair of clear aligners that you wear are designed to be fully transparent. Not only does this make your smile fully visible, but their plastic material is far more comfortable and smooth to the touch, which is in major contrast to metal brackets and wires used for braces. This allows for a treatment that is truly discreet and comfortable from start to finish.
Clear aligners stay secure in your mouth with ease, but they are just as easily removable as well. This means you can take them out to enjoy your favorite foods! Metal braces are fixed to teeth, which means you can’t eat certain foods because they can potentially damage your hardware. Whether you want to bite into an apple, chew a slice of pizza, or freshen your breath with some sugar-free gum, clear aligners make it easy!
Adding clear aligner maintenance to your routine at-home oral care is incredibly simple. All you need to do is place your clear aligners in their designated cleaning solution and let them soak for about 15 minutes at a time. This can be done during your morning and evening brushing and flossing routine, keeping your aligners transparent throughout your treatment.
Do you enjoy playing a contact sport like football or hockey? Does your mouth need space in order to play a specific instrument? You’ll find that clear aligners make these activities a whole lot easier and safer thanks to their removability.
If you’re a working adult, you probably don’t want to be seen with a mouth full of metal at your next meeting with co-workers. With Invisalign, you can feel good about your smile, so your self-esteem and your confidence remain high.
