When Invisalign treatments first appeared, many people (including orthodontists) were skeptical. Would they actually straighten your teeth? Could Invisalign work for everybody? How young could you be? How old? The questions seemed endless.
Now the clear plastic alignment trays are treated as equals in the orthodontic field. We know that it works. We know if it can work for you, and we know that the patients who use Invisalign are ecstatic with the results of their smile.
What Makes Invisalign Great
One of the largest hurdles for those visiting the orthodontist for the first time is the simple idea of what the next 18 months might be like. What will you look like? How will your life change? Can you eat the same things? Will people ever look at you the same way?
With Invisalign, those questions are put to rest easily. What will you look like? Yourself. How will your life change? For the better. Can you eat the same things? Yes! Will people look at you the same way? No… but that can be a positive thing!
The clear plastic Invisalign tray has a very low impact on your life during treatment. People will hardly ever notice you wearing them, and you can remove the trays when it’s time to eat. Other than meal times, and regular cleaning, the trays stay in your mouth all day. Patients get used to them very quickly, and will laugh, sing, and smile as naturally as they ever did before.
Is Invisalign for Everyone?
No. There are some advanced cases where treatment by Invisalign is not preferred; however, the techniques used by orthodontists to treat their patients with Invisalign have continuously evolved over the last decade. We can now do more with the low profile aligners than we ever could before.
If you would like to learn more about Invisalign, make an appointment for an evaluation. Find out whether Invisalign is right for you. Even if it is not the right course, the orthodontist will be able to show you the best path towards a straighter, more beautiful smile.
