Align Teeth with Smooth Plastic Trays – No more Metal Wires
Who wants to wear metal braces as an adult? Like it or not, people associate metal braces with teenagers. Most adults will think they look immature with metal brackets and wires in their mouth, since they connect metal brackets with tweens. Adults who want straight, aligned teeth have options.
That’s why you need to call our Hellertown, PA dental office today at 610-628-9337 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 Metal Braces
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment. As in traditional braces, it will slowly and gently reposition your teeth and even your jaw. However, that’s where the similarities end.
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.
How Invisalign Can Help You Smile
The biggest way Invisalign helps you smile is obvious – you end up with straight teeth. But here are a few additional benefits of the treatment.
Invisalign is often completed in half the time of metal braces
Traditional braces work well, 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!
Trays are not visible 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 610-628-9337 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.
Trays don’t cut the inside of your mouth like metal
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.
No restrictive diet – eat what you want
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.
Will 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, well aligned smile.
Call us TODAY at 610-628-9337 or contact us online to schedule a consult for Invisalign clear aligners. Adults deserve straight smiles as well. Traditional braces work well, but they can be less than ideal as an adult. That means Invisalign clear aligners can be just what you need.
