When it comes to your smile, weighing your options carefully is the most important part of the decision-making process. If you’re an adult who finally wants to do something about your unsightly teeth, you do have alternatives to traditional metal braces.
The best alternative option today is Invisalign, and today we’re sharing some tips regarding how to know if it might be the best solution for you!
3 Ways To Know If You’re Ready For Invisalign
For adults, it’s not always easy to make the decision to get orthodontic treatment. That’s because it’s something most people do earlier in life. But Invisalign is different than standard braces.
Instead of brackets that are bonded to your teeth with wires connecting them, Invisalign uses a series of smooth, clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Here are three ways to know if Invisalign is right for you.
- You don’t want others to see your braces. Most of us can agree that one thing we don’t miss about being younger was the painful teasing about our appearance through those awkward preteen years. Invisalign gets its name from the fact that the aligners are nearly invisible, so you don’t have to look awkward while you correct your crooked teeth. No one will even know you’re wearing them!
- You don’t want to make major changes to your lifestyle. You’re a self-sufficient, independent adult. So we’re guessing that you probably aren’t interested in being told what you can and can’t eat because of your orthodontic treatment.Invisalign aligners are removable, so you don’t have to restrict your diet to protect your braces. And you don’t have to spend more time cleaning your teeth every morning and night to get around your brackets and wires either. Just brush, floss, and rinse!
- You don’t want to wait years to love your smile! Invisalign can be completed in about a year in most cases, which is a breeze compared to traditional orthodontic treatment that typically takes up to 2 – 3 years. Haven’t you waited long enough?
It’s hard to ignore the potential benefits of choosing Invisalign to improve your smile. But the only way to really know if it is the right orthodontic treatment for you is to call our office to schedule a consultation. If you’re ready for the smile of your dreams, we’re here to help, so call today!
