When you think about orthodontics, what comes to your mind? Do you get flashbacks to middle school? Pimply pre-teens running around with metal wires popping out of their lips and wondering what color combination your crush would pick for his/her braces next! Now imagine yourself, as an adult, trying to be professional with serious brace face? Let’s get serious! Adults need a better solution for orthodontic care so that we can get the alignment we need without the embarrassment that comes with traditional metal braces! That’s why we turn to Invisalign orthodontics!
Getting orthodontics is about more than making your smile beautiful, though that is certainly a plus. Orthodontics corrects misalignment, which is when your teeth don’t fit together correctly. Misalignment can make you feel uncomfortable, but it can also cause more serious problems, like bruxism. Bruxism is another word for teeth grinding. It can lead to sore jaws, TMJ problems, and worn down or broken teeth!
The Invisalign Solution
Invisalign braces make correcting a misaligned bite the easiest thing you can do to improve your smile! Your braces are actually a series of plastic shells that fit over your teeth to create an invisible alignment tool. Through images we take at the beginning of the process, we will plan each aligner ahead of time. Every two weeks, you will switch out aligners to efficiently get the smile you need. All you need to do is wear the aligners 22/24 hours a day!
When you are wearing Invisalign braces, you will be the only one who knows that you are having orthodontic work done. You can even take the braces out for special occasions, if you feel like you need to. You certainly can’t do that with metal braces!
