Have you considered straightening your teeth? Has your child’s dentist recommended braces? Do you want to enhance the appearance of your smile, but don’t like the idea of covering the teeth with metal bracket and wire orthodontia for months or even years? Drs. Gary and Ashley McDowell of McDowell Dental Group in Abington, PA encourage patients who are interested in braces to speak up during their evaluations to learn more about alternatives such as Invisalign!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign braces are sometimes rereferred to as “invisible braces” because they are discreet and difficult to discern within the smile. Invisalign braces use clear plastic aligner trays that are custom-made for the patient that gradually reposition the teeth within the dental arch. In doing so, patients can:
- Improve their bite alignment
- Reduce the risk of cavities and periodontal disease
- Brush and floss easier
- Reduce speech impediments
- Address overcrowding or overbites
- Improve overall self-confidence and self-esteem
Why are Invisalign braces worth the cost?
Many individuals can pay thousands of dollars to spend months or years in traditional braces. However, many patients choose to move forward with Invisalign treatment because of its benefits. Invisalign treatments can improve oral health, as patients no longer have to work around brackets and wires to brush and floss. It can also enhance the appearance of the smile while improving bite alignment. Common bite misalignment issues include worn or broken teeth and restorations. Invisalign is a great solution for patients who want a more cosmetic approach to repositioning the teeth within the smile, maintaining their confidence and appearance from start to finish! Most patients find that they can achieve the final results in less than a year, shortening the treatment period dramatically when compared to conventional orthodontic methods.
