Did you know that most Americans consider your smile to be your most important physical feature? In fact, research shows that those with good dental health are seen to be more successful in the workplace, and having a beautiful grin makes it easier to find Mr. or Miss Right. And, straight teeth are healthy teeth – properly aligned dentitions prevent gum disease and dental problems. So, if you’re ready for your perfect smile, but don’t want traditional metal braces, Invisalign in Lafayette is the solution for you. The experts at Sage Dental Care explain what this method is and why it’s superior over braces in this post.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system of custom-made clear, BPA-free acrylic aligners that fit comfortably. They gently move teeth into proper position and can correct any number of common dental alignment problems.
The process for Invisalign starts with having your dentist in Lafayette make a 3D model of your teeth. With this technology, you’ll get a sneak peek of what your final result will look like. We will send your impressions and digital model to the lab, and your Invisalign will be made just for you.
You’ll receive your entire course of treatment in one shipment, and the aligners will be numbered in sequential order for your convenience. Just switch to a new pair every two weeks or so and be amazed by how quickly you see dramatic results.
Why Is Invisalign Better Than Traditional Metal Braces?
This straightening option is superior to traditional metal braces for many reasons:
- Invisible – Correcting your alignment is about making your teeth healthy and better looking, not about calling more attention to imperfections. Invisalign is so clear and thin (yet remarkably effective), the only person who’ll notice them is you.
- Comfort – Not only will the aligners adjust the position of your teeth in a way that’s comfortable, you’ll also have minimal wear and tear to the inside of your mouth. You can say goodbye to nicks and cuts to your gums, cheeks, and lips – and that means no more unpleasant dental wax, too.
- Diet – Unlike metal braces, you’ll take Invisalign out when you eat. You’ll be able to eat a balanced diet and enjoy all your favorite foods – from apples, to corn-on-the-cob, to caramels to popcorn. Nothing is off limits!
- Time – Since you won’t need to come into our office every two weeks to have your braces adjusted, you’ll save time with fewer follow-up dentist appointments. And, the overall treatment time is shorter – most patients are completely done in 6-18 months.
Now that you know why Invisalign is the clear choice for straight teeth, schedule your appointment today to get the smile of your dreams!
