How Invisalign from your Houston dentist can improve your smile
You may think orthodontic treatment is just for teenagers. The truth is orthodontic treatment can benefit adults too. Achieving a straighter smile as an adult may seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be, thanks to Invisalign, the discreet way to straighten your smile. Dr. June Goodall in West Houston, TX wants to share the facts about how you can have a straighter smile with Invisalign.
In years past, orthodontic treatment used metal brackets and wires. Braces had sharp metal parts which could poke into your cheeks, tongue and gums. Back then, people would notice all the metal in your mouth and not your beautiful teeth.
Times have changed! Invisalign has revolutionized orthodontic treatment. You begin your treatment by receiving your first set of clear plastic trays, called aligners. You wear these aligners for two weeks and then move on to another set, which you wear for another two weeks. You move on to a new set of aligners until your treatment is complete. Invisalign treatment typically takes only 9 to 15 months.
Invisalign can correct all of the same jaw and tooth alignment problems as conventional brackets and wires. With Invisalign you can correct overbite, underbite, crossbite and open bite. You can also close gaps between your teeth and fix tooth overlap.
There are many reasons why adults choose Invisalign. You should choose Invisalign because it is:
- Virtually invisible, because the aligners are made of clear plastic
- Healthy, because you remove the aligners to brush and floss normally
- Comfortable, because the aligners are smooth plastic, not metal
- Quick, because treatment takes months, not years
- Satisfying, because you can eat what you want
If you are an adult with tooth or jaw alignment problems, don’t worry! You can achieve a straighter smile with Invisalign. Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for teenagers; orthodontic treatment is for you too, thanks to Invisalign.
