More goes into having a healthy, good-looking smile than just keeping your teeth clean—the way that they are aligned also matters. Allow a family dentist at Esthetic Enhancement in Olathe, KS, to consult you about your orthodontic options. You may be a good candidate for Invisalign, a subtle, relatively fast, and effective way to fix the positioning of the teeth.
What Is Invisalign and How Does It Work?
Dental scientists are always seeking ways to treat patients more efficiently and provide them with the dentistry options that they need to thrive. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that was designed for patients who don’t feel comfortable having metal brackets, wires, and rubber bands in their mouths for a long period of time. As opposed to these traditional orthodontic materials, Invisalign uses sets of clear, delicate, plastic trays are shaped to closely fit the indentations and surfaces of your teeth. During treatment, you will receive a new set of trays from your Olathe family dentist every couple of weeks, across a period of about six months to a year. Gradually over this period, your teeth will adjust to match the shape of the aligning trays.
Invisalign: Why It’s a Preferred Treatment
One of the more obvious reasons why patients prefer Invisalign is due to aesthetics. Most people won’t notice at all that you’re wearing a tray when you talk or smile because the trays are clear, thin, and fit snugly along your gumline. Another advantage over regular braces is that an aligning tray can be removed and put back in whenever you want. Also, not everyone can wait up to three years for a better smile—Invisalign does the job in less than half that time, on average!
A Much-Improved Smile
Spaces between the teeth, crowding, and excessive overbites can really make a smile look unattractive. Invisalign is a relatively simple treatment that will help fix all of these issues and more. Don’t underestimate the importance of smile esthetics—a study conducted Kelton Research showed that most people associate it with more success, confidence, and even trustworthiness.
