For many teenagers, braces are a part of growing up. They are annoying for a couple of years, but that does not last. A mouth full of straight teeth and a beautiful smile is worth it in the long run. Braces as an adult are a different story. Many adults would rather live with mildly crooked teeth than to live with the stigma of having braces as an adult. Fortunately, there is an option that many adults with crooked teeth will be happy with. That option is Invisalign. If you are an adult who does not want metal braces, talk to us here at Taglia Advanced Dentistry about them. We think that you will like what you hear.
What You Need to Know About Invisalign
With Invisalign, you will be able to correct your teeth and your alignment without anyone knowing about it. You will not have a face full of metal.
With Invisalign braces, you will not have to wear metal braces. You will be fit for them here in our office, but we will not apply anything to your teeth. Invisalign is like having invisible braces that you can remove when you need to.
Instead of metal braces that we need to apply to your teeth, with Invisalign, you will receive a series of aligners. These are clear, so it will not be obvious to anyone that you are wearing them. You will wear the aligners, and change them every couple of weeks. We will give you the exact schedule when you receive your aligners.
One of the things that are nice about Invisalign is that you will not have to come into our office all of the time for adjustments. Of course, we will want to check your progress from time to time, but the aligners will not need to be tightened the way that metal braces need to be tightened periodically.
Taking care of both your teeth and your aligners is easy. We will teach you how to care for the aligners. As far as keeping your teeth clean is concerned, it is business as usual. All that you will need to do is to remove the aligner and brush and floss like normal. Then you can put the aligner back onto your teeth.
If you have severely crooked teeth, then you might still want to go with traditional metal braces instead, or you can talk to us here at Taglia Advanced Dentistry about other options. Still, Invisalign has helped countless people already. They are great for adults who never had a problem fixed when they were younger. They can also help someone who has had a problem with facial trauma that could have affected the alignment of their teeth.
Invisalign can also help older teenagers who would rather not have metal braces. If you are tired of the way that your teeth look, call (312) 757-6434 and make an appointment. We would love to help you to figure out whether or not Invisalign is the right choice for you.
