With the world of orthodontics changing so frequently, it is hard to keep up with the best technologies available for your dental care. If you are looking for the most cutting-edge innovation to fast track you to the smile you want faster than ever, look to Invisalign.
With up to fifty percent faster treatment times, and twenty years of clinical research, the aligner is backed by the data and experience of four million cases. Invisalign retainers are made from SmartTrack material and are proven to achieve 75% more predictable tooth movement and are more comfortable, better fitting, and easier to incorporate into your everyday life.
This not only enables your orthodontist to ensure precision, but allows the highest level of comfort and far exceeds the painful, unsightly, and archaic procedures of metal braces.
With standard, metal braces or even other invisible braces that use conventional brackets, you can experience greater amounts of pain and discomfort; including but not limited to mouth sores, inadequate brushing, plaque buildup, discoloration, and injuries that may be caused by these conventional procedures. In addition, there are several food restrictions with metal braces; popcorn, chips, bagels, hard-crusted bread, pizza crust, pretzels, nuts, certain candies…plus apples, carrots, corn on the cob, and more.
While both Invisalign and metal braces treat a wide variety of issues such as crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite, and straightening of your teeth. Invisalign has many advantages over alternative options.
For example, Invisalign allows you to eat whatever foods you would like, because the device is removable, allowing for optimal comfort as it consists of smooth, fitting comfort plastic as opposed to sharp metal that can irritate your cheeks and gums.
In addition, Invisalign offers virtually invisible teeth straightening, making it a perfect option for anyone from kids to adults. Invisalign Teen also provides up to six free aligners if lost or broken.
Another option our patients often consider is veneers and other similar treatments. When comparing, veneers are a good option for improving your smile but they only mask dental imperfections instead of correcting them. The underlying periodontal problems may persist and the veneers also have permanent implications; they require the removal of the tooth’s surface enamel – which is irreplaceable. They also need to be replaced every five to ten years which can be very expensive and any dark liquids such as coffee, tea, and red wine must be avoided as not to stain them.
While all of these are useful options, the clear winner for your cutting-edge dental health is Invisalign. Choosing not to take care of your teeth can have many negative implications and harm your overall health, so do yourself a favor and contact Feather Sound Smiles today to schedule your free Invisalign consultation.
