Why Invisalign Is Better Than Metal Braces
At this point in your life, the idea of wearing metal braces is probably too embarrassing to consider. You’re not a pre-teen anymore! But you still have crooked teeth and want to look better.
Thankfully, you can call our Lincroft, NJ dental office today at 732-352-3903 and make an appointment for Invisalign clear aligners. These straighten teeth but are not braces. Our dentists have trained extensively to offer this modern orthodontic treatment.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is orthodontics, meaning it’s designed to reposition your teeth and jaw over time like braces. But that’s where the similarities end. Traditional braces move your teeth by cementing metal brackets to your teeth. A wire connects them all and drags your teeth to their new position.
That’s not how Invisalign works. Instead of metal and wire, it uses clear, smooth plastic. Each Invisalign clear aligner is a tray that fits snugly over your teeth. Because it uses clear plastic, Invisalign is almost invisible when worn.
The Invisalign Results
But does Invisalign work? Definitely! You’ll get a series of trays. Each one is shaped just a bit different than the one before. The shape of the tray gently guides your teeth and jaw to their new positions. In other words, Invisalign gives you a straight, aligned smile.
That’s why you need to call us today at 732-352-3903. The sooner you call, the sooner you’ll have straight teeth thanks to Invisalign clear aligners.
How Invisalign Beats Braces
Although the results are comparable between braces and Invisalign, there are several ways Invisalign beats traditional braces.
– Because it’s smooth, Invisalign won’t cut the inside of your lips or cheeks.
Traditional braces use metal brackets on your teeth. These aren’t exactly sharp, but they can catch on the inside of your mouth. This leads to cuts and even scars over time. (You’ll be wearing metal braces for 2-3 years, so those small cuts can add up.)
Call Newman Springs Dental Care today and make your first Invisalign appointment. Because this orthodontic treatment uses smooth plastic, there is literally nothing to catch on. That means your experience will be more comfortable.
– There are no food or drink restrictions with Invisalign.
Because certain foods can damage to stick to the metal brackets and wires, you have to avoid some food and drink while using traditional braces. Otherwise, you’re just increasing your risk of cavities or setting your orthodontic treatment back.
By calling our Lincroft, NJ dental office today, you can get an orthodontic treatment that has no eating restrictions. That’s because you can take Invisalign clear aligners out whenever you want. Simply take it out, eat, brush, and put it back in. It really is that simple.
– Invisalign is often complete 1-2 years sooner than braces.
Orthodontics takes time. Moving your teeth and jaw to a better, aligned position has to be done over time to keep your mouth healthy. However, there’s a big difference in the time it takes for braces or Invisalign to be complete. With metal braces, you’re looking at 2-3 years. That’s 2-3 years of regular visits to tighten the wire, food restrictions, tiny cuts, and all that metal on your smile.
Instead, you can call Newman Springs Dental Care and get Invisalign. While the exact time needed depends on your particular situation, many people get straight teeth after one year. That means you can save 1-2 years!
– People will have trouble knowing you’re using Invisalign.
The only way you can hide traditional braces is by never opening your mouth. As soon as you start talking, laughing, or even yawning, you’re showing everyone that you have metal brackets and wires on your teeth. Especially for adults, that can be embarrassing.
Thankfully, Invisalign is made from clear plastic. Once you put them over your teeth, most people will never know you’re getting orthodontic treatment. Instead of seeing unsightly metal, people see your natural teeth.
