Adults deserve straight, aligned teeth just as much as teenagers. But who wants to wear metal braces at this age? Fair or not, people connect metal braces with being a teenager. But instead of looking young, most adults will look immature with metal brackets and wires in their mouth.
That’s why you need to call our Hellertown, PA dental office today at 484-858-0949 and schedule your first appointment for Invisalign clear aligners. This modern orthodontic treatment can straighten your teeth with smooth plastic trays, not metal and wires. Our dentists have helped many adults over the years use Invisalign to get the straight, aligned smile they deserve.
Orthodontics Without Braces
Invisalign is still an orthodontic treatment. Like traditional braces, it’s used to slowly and gently reposition your teeth and even your jaw. However, that’s about all the two treatments have in common.
With traditional braces, you get metal brackets cemented to your teeth. A wire connects them all. By tightening that wire, you drag teeth to their new place.
Invisalign has no metal or wire. Instead, it uses smooth, clear plastic trays that are similar to small mouthguards. They fit snugly over your teeth, and they move your teeth and jaw to where they belong by the shape of the tray.
Does Invisalign Work?
Definitely! While traditional braces might be better if you have an extreme case, almost everyone can get great Invisalign results. That means your crooked smile can finally look straight and amazing!
With Invisalign, you’ll get a series of these trays. Each is slightly different than the one before. By wearing them in the right sequence, you get a straight, aligned smile.
How Invisalign Can Help Your Smile
The biggest way Invisalign helps your smile is obvious — you get straight teeth. But here are a few lesser-known benefits to this modern orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign is almost invisible when worn.
One of the biggest drawbacks of getting traditional braces as an adult is how they look on your teeth. You smile, and you show off a lot of shiny metal and wire. That can be embarrassing for adults.
Call our Hellertown, PA dental office today at 484-858-0949 and make your first appointment for Invisalign. Because they’re made from clear plastic, they’re almost impossible to see when you are wearing them. That means you can get orthodontic treatment discretely.
Invisalign is often done 1-2 years sooner than metal braces.
Traditional braces definitely work, which is why you can still get them here at our Hellertown, PA dental office. However, they usually take 2-3 years before they are finished moving your teeth and jaw. That means 2-3 years of metal braces on your teeth.
By calling today, you can get Invisalign clear aligners that can be done in just one year. That can save you 1-2 years of dental visits and wearing something on your teeth. Plus, the Invisalign results are amazing!
Invisalign has no restrictions on what you can eat.
Because traditional braces use brackets and wires, you cannot eat certain foods. Some will stick to your braces (like gum or caramel) while others can damage the braces (like pretzels or bagels). You’ll be wearing those braces for 2-3 years, so that can be a drastic change in your diet.
Call Hellertown Dental Group today and get Invisalign clear aligners. You can pop them out whenever you want. That means there are no eating restrictions! All you need to do is brush afterward and put the smooth, clear trays over your teeth again.
Invisalign will not cut the inside of your mouth.
The metal brackets that come with traditional braces can catch on the inside of your cheeks. This means you can cut yourself repeatedly and even scar the inside of your mouth. Plus, any accident to your mouth can create big problems.
Invisalign clear aligners are made from smooth, comfortable plastic. There’s literally nothing that can catch on the inside of your mouth, so you won’t cut yourself.
Call us TODAY at 484-858-0949 or contact us online to schedule your first appointment for Invisalign clear aligners. Adults deserve straight smiles as well. Traditional braces work well, but they can be embarrassing for adults. That means Invisalign clear aligners can be just what you’re looking for.
