As an adult, the last thing you want to do is revisit your junior high days and have a mouth full of metal braces. However, if you work in a professional field or industry, it’s important to have a straight smile that makes you look put-together. Luckily, with Invisalign from McDowell Dental Group, you won’t have to worry about being called “brace face” or having to hide your smile during business meetings.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a tooth straightening system that uses clear aligners rather than metal brackets. By wearing a series of customized Invisalign aligners that were created for you, our dentists will create a sequence to help move your teeth at the right time.
As previously mentioned, because Invisalign uses clear trays, one of the unique benefits of them is that they are practically invisible so you won’t have to worry about being self-conscious when you’re wearing them.
With traditional braces, you have to avoid eating certain foods because they can get caught in your brackets. Another unique benefit of Invisalign is that you can take them out to eat or brush your teeth. For best results, we do recommend that patients wear their trays for 20 to 22 hours a day.
If you want to have straighter teeth without the hassle of traditional metal braces, consider getting Invisalign from McDowell Dental Group. During your initial consultation with our staff, we will perform a brief dental exam, take x-rays, and help determine if Invisalign is the best treatment plan for you.
