Few of us are lucky enough to have perfectly straight teeth our entire lives. If you never had braces as a kid and your teeth aren’t as straight as you’d like, Invisalign could be an option for you. Many adults don’t like the idea of wearing metal braces so they look for alternative ways to get the smile they’ve always wanted. Invisalign can help straighten your teeth through a series of clear retainers. These retainers are removable so you can eat and brush your teeth without them. Lake Worth Orthodontics has a team of professionals who can help you see if Invisalign is the best option to straighten your teeth and get the smile you’ve always wanted.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is a clear retainer that over time will straighten your teeth. When you decide to use Invisalign our team will fit you for a retainer and then every couple weeks you will come back and get a new retainer. Each time, your new retainer will change just a little bit to bring your teeth closer together and give you the perfect smile you’ve always wanted to have. Traditional braces working in the same way but Invisalign provides you with a clear retainer for those who don’t want to have bulky metal braces in their mouth.
There are many reasons why people prefer Invisalign to traditional metal braces. With metal braces they are permanent and can’t be removed like your Invisalign retainer can be. With Invisalign you can remove your retainer when you eat and when you brush your teeth. With metal braces this isn’t possible and food can get stuck in your braces, increasing the chances of cavities if you don’t brush and floss well. You can also remove your retainer if you have an important meeting, dinner date, or any other activity where you would prefer not to have your retainer in. Just remember to put it back in after!
Lake Worth Orthodontics offers Invisalign for those who are looking for straighter teeth but aren’t sold on the idea of getting metal braces. There are many positives to getting Invisalign and they will help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.
