Having misaligned teeth can get in the way of an enjoyable life. Not only do straighter teeth enhance a sense of confidence, they are healthier overall. Misaligned teeth are more susceptible to gum disease and cavities and can be harder to clean. That’s why we recommend that our patients consider all straightening options to improve their oral health. Although it’s never too late to get braces, there are several options on the market today that can fit your particular lifestyle. One of those is Invisalign®. Read on to see if it’s right for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign clear retainers are a great alternative to traditional metal braces. They are clear, removable trays that work efficiently to align teeth within a period of months. You’ll see progress in your alignment without having to worry about many of the lifestyle changes that come with traditional braces. At Helotes Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer Invisalign as a straightening option to our patients.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign is the best treatment for those who are looking for a discreet straightening option. Unlike traditional braces, they are invisible to the naked eye. It looks like you’re wearing nothing at all! They work to straighten teeth over time and can be removed to be cleaned. You don’t have to change your dietary or oral care habits too much when wearing Invisalign, whereas, with braces, you’ll need to make several adjustments.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
Invisalign is best for those with mild to moderate crowding. For those with complex misalignment, traditional braces may be a better option. We can determine which path is right for you at your initial consultation. If you’re concerned about the cost of Invisalign treatment, don’t be. We offer many payment options and will work with you on financing the smile of your dreams.
