Often times adults wish they could do something to fix their crooked teeth, but feel like their time has passed long ago. For a long time the only options adults had were traditional metal braces, and what adult really wants to deal with those?
Eccella Smiles is giving renewed hope to adults just like you who are hoping to straighten their teeth without metal braces, with Invisalign! Invisalign is changing the braces game by using clear, plastic trays instead of metal wires or brackets. They are thin and custom made to fit perfectly over your teeth. Every few weeks you get a new set of trays until you’re teeth are straight!
Besides appearances, there are several other advantages of using Invisalign over traditional braces.
Normal metal braces often hold food in hard to reach places making keeping your mouth free of cavities more challenging. Traditional braces also require a change in diet, as hard food can damage your brackets. Since Invisalign trays are removable, you can simply take them out when eating and cleaning without having to change your diet or tooth care routine.
While it’s very common to see younger people with braces, adults often don’t want the distraction of braces taking away from their professional appearance. This makes traditional braces less than ideal. Invisalign trays are completely clear, making them nearly impossible to spot!
Traditional braces take weeks to become comfortable, rubbing against the soft tissues of your mouth. Clear, plastic trays are smooth and comfortable, fitting snugly over your teeth. Invisalign won’t irritate your gums and cheeks like traditional braces.
Maybe the time commitment of traditional braces is preventing you from straightening your teeth. With Invisalign, the time it takes to perfect your smile is much shorter. Most patients see a straight smile in a year or less!
Some people assume Invisalign trays aren’t as effective as traditional metal braces, but that isn’t the case. Invisalign trays give the same teeth straightening effects as metal braces in the same amount of time or less, and give you a more enjoyable experience while they do it!
Though traditional braces are still widely-used to correct more complicated malocclusion problems, Invisalign trays are just as effective for normal teeth straightening. If clear aligners are the right solution for your smile, you’ll enjoy the same, satisfying cosmetic results you get with braces.
