Have you been hiding your smile due to crooked, gapped, or misaligned teeth? Why not choose Invisalign for a new you this new year? Whether you believe in new year resolutions or not, it is best to make a change for the better this 2021.
Invisalign® orthodontic treatments are a solution for those who desire to look better and feel better about your smile without wearing braces. Invisalign braces discreetly improve your appearance and make your smile healthier at the same time.
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces that does not utilize metal brackets and wires. Instead, it makes use of a series of clear, removable aligners to guide the teeth to their proper places. Some of the reasons why many people prefer Invisalign over conventional orthodontic treatments are:
Straight teeth are a confidence booster
When you have straight teeth, you look better. And when you know you look better you gain confidence. If you have teeth that you’re unhappy about, you know just how much a good smile matters personally, professionally, and romantically. When your teeth are in alignment, they give you the opportunity to see an improved version of yourself, and you’ll find yourself relishing the role to reinvent yourself.
You can keep the treatment to yourself
The Invisalign system is ideal for people who have been delaying orthodontic treatment due to the thought of wearing a mouthful of metal. The clear oral appliance makes it possible for patients to straighten their teeth discreetly. Most people won’t even notice the orthodontic appliance unless told by the wearer themselves.
Offers easy progress
During a patient’s journey to straighter teeth, they won’t need to see the orthodontist frequently for adjustments. Instead, they are advised beforehand to replace the aligners every week or so. By replacing the trays as recommended, patients can see that they are one step closer to achieving their goal. But they should still take note of appointments advised by your orthodontist since they are necessary to track the treatment progress and offer any assistance with the treatment.
Get a healthier smile
Aside from the main goal of straightening one’s smile by correcting the alignment of the jaw and teeth, one of the biggest advantages the treatment offers is better oral health. Crooked teeth can trap food, and they are also trickier to clean; therefore, a person’s risk of developing cavities is high. On the other hand, straight teeth are easier to clean and maintain so that patients can expect not only a visually pleasing smile but excellent oral health as well.
