For generations, people having their teeth straightened with traditional wire and metal braces had to put up with seeing those braces during every single day of their treatment plan. They had to tolerate or get accustomed to the irritation of their lips and cheeks by metal wire and brackets. Perhaps worst of all, people wearing braces dealt with teasing and stigma associated with their “metal mouth.”
Today, you have a much better option — Invisalign’s clear and removable aligners. Invisalign from Maxx Dental Group works faster, more comfortably and more discreetly to help you to bid adieu to crooked and gapped teeth. Without having to sacrifice anything when it comes to eating the foods you love and keeping your teeth as clean and bright as you can, you can finally accomplish your goal of achieving straighter teeth. Here are some of the biggest advantages of straightening your teeth with Invisalign in Fort McMurray.
Invisalign takes advantage of sophisticated technology
Once your dentist in Fort McMurray confirms you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, the first step in developing your treatment plan will be the taking of three-dimensional digital scans of your teeth, jaw and mouth. Those images will be used to plan and simulate every stage of your progress and the final results. They’ll also be transmitted to Invisalign’s technologists so they can craft a series of aligners that will gradually perfect the positions of your teeth.
You’ll be able to eat everything you love
Eating with braces can sometimes be challenging, there’s no getting around it. Some foods are just too crunchy, too stringy or too gooey to eat without filling those braces with debris or just too difficult to chew with brackets on and wires strung between your teeth. For all the months or years of an orthodontic treatment plan, you’ll need to deal with those issues. On the other hand, you’ll never need to worry about what you eat while wearing Invisalign. Because, when you eat, you won’t be wearing Invisalign. You can and must remove your aligners to eat anything while undergoing an Invisalign treatment plan.
Invisalign may be faster than braces
Every individual’s orthodontic treatment plan is different, whether that plan is accomplished with Invisalign or with braces. Because treatment plans vary from person to person, it’s impossible to say with any specificity just how long straightening your teeth with Invisalign will take. As a very general rule that you should discuss carefully with a dentist near you, though, Invisalign can produce results more quickly than traditional braces. Adults may be able to accomplish their goals in as little as a year. For teenagers, Invisalign treatment plans usually aren’t any longer than traditional orthodontic methods.
Invisalign will boost your self-confidence
There shouldn’t be any stigma associated with cosmetic dental procedures such as orthodontic work with braces, but it’s clear that there is. Many adults in public-facing positions or professional roles want to straighten or correct their misaligned or gapped teeth but aren’t willing to wear obvious and stigmatizing braces. For people for whom subtlety, discretion and privacy are important, Invisalign offers a much more comfortable and accessible solution for crooked teeth.
If you suffer from gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, open bites, crossbites or overly crowded teeth, Invisalign may be a comfortable, discreet and efficient option for achieving your cosmetic dentistry goals. Make an appointment with a dentist near you to find out if you’re a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign near you and how to get started.
