They say that having a good smile makes your confidence better. We could all use some help to get that perfect smile by letting your straighten your teeth in no time. Gone are the years that there was only one option for straightening teeth, but now because of the technological advances it now gives us new options. Heard about clear braces? Invisalign is the newest technology for moving teeth.
Traditional Braces are still an option but some don’t want to have it anymore are we right?… since it has a lot of disadvantages. Like for example, braces use metal or ceramic brackets that are connected to one another thru wires. These wires move teeth slowly overtime by pulling teeth into a new direction. These brackets are considered natural food traps, as your dentist might say. They often come off when you bite onto something hard and chewy. So it may take a little longer for your teeth to move because one of the brackets might have fallen off or you might have lost it while you were eating.
Orthodontic aligners, like Invisalign are the newest contribution in aligning teeth. They are form fitting custom-made retainers that slowly change the tooth’s position over time. They move the teeth in a similar way to how braces work however Invisalign is conveniently removable and transparent making them virtually invisible. They do what braces do without the restrictions.
Invisalign® is custom-made for your teeth so you do not need wires and brackets. Little by little, your teeth shifts into place , creating that winning smile at the very end.
Aside from being invisible and it’s convenience when wearing the tray, there are many other reasons to choose Invisalign. Here are the top 10 most important reasons to use Invisalign.
