Get Your Dream Smile With Invisalign
How you feel about your smile is an important part of your identity. Research shows that effective orthodontic treatment can have a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem. However, few adults want to undergo lengthy treatment with traditional metal braces. Luckily, there’s a new solution.
At Watkins Dental Group, Invisalign© braces help teens and adults achieve a beautiful, straight smile discreetly. Thanks to this treatment’s revolutionary alignment tray system, orthodontic treatment has never been more comfortable or more convenient.
Invisalign—A Twenty-First Century Solution
For decades, traditional metal braces have been the primary way for patients to correct crooked, overcrowded teeth. While this treatment is still among the most effective, there are a number of drawbacks that deter patients from undergoing orthodontic treatment. For starters, as traditional braces use metal brackets and wires, many patients find them to be uncomfortable to wear.
Traditional braces also limit the type of foods you are allowed to eat. Even more importantly, it can be difficult to practice effective dental hygiene with metal braces, as brushing and flossing are often more difficult and require greater attention to detail. Metal braces also require frequent visits to the orthodontist for checkups and regular tightening. Many patients feel that metal braces are distracting or even embarrassing. This can be especially true for patients who are self-conscious about their appearance.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a revolutionary way to realign your teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, this system uses a series of clear plastic trays called aligners. Your aligners are designed and fabricated just for you. Each new aligner gradually shifts your teeth until the process is complete. More importantly, Invisalign patients enjoy lasting results that are just like what they would have received with traditional braces. At Watkins Dental Group, cosmetic smile imaging helps us show patients exactly what results they can expect with this treatment before committing to Invisalign.
The Advantages of Invisalign
Beyond providing a clear alternative to metal braces, Invisalign offers patients a number of benefits.
Convenience: Instead of visiting our Dallas, PA dental office for weekly tightening appointments, our orthodontist, Dr. Adams, will provide you with several sets of aligning trays to be swapped out at home. You’ll only need to visit Watkins Dental Group for monthly check-ups and to get your next sets of trays.
No Diet Restrictions: With Invisalign, there’s no need to avoid certain foods – you can eat what you want, when you want. Just remember to take out your trays before meals or snacks and to thoroughly brush and floss before putting the aligners back on. This helps limit potential cavities and protects your trays from being broken or stained.
Comfortable: Because Invisalign relies on custom plastic trays rather than metal brackets to straighten teeth, the treatment is much more comfortable than its metal counterpart. Many of our Back Mountain Invisalign patients don’t even realize they’re wearing their aligning trays until it’s time to clean them!
