Reasons to Choose Invisalign
You’ve made it this long with a less-than-perfect smile, but the older you get, the more noticeable it seems when you look in the mirror. Add in the fact that your bite is starting to wear down because of the misalignment, and you might be starting to wonder if getting braces as an adult sounds like a good idea.
That’s exactly why Invisalign was created. Here are several reasons why you should consider setting up a consultation with Dr. Jaeger to learn more about getting Invisalign in Coeur d’Alene.
What is Invisalign?
First things first … Invisalign is the leading provider of clear orthodontic treatment. It’s the best choice for adults who don’t want metal braces. Invisalign is a removable, translucent orthodontic treatment that straightens your smile, and there are zero metal brackets or wires involved.
You’ll replace your aligner trays every two weeks with the next ones. As each appliance is worn, your smile will gradually become more aligned.
Every other month, you’ll need to visit our orthodontist in Coeur d’Alene. If everything is going well, we’ll send you home with the next set of trays. Sometimes we will need to make adjustments or add “buttons” to certain teeth. These are tiny tooth-colored bubbles that provide your trays with something to grip onto. But don’t worry, they blend in with your teeth and we remove them at the completion of your treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign Treatment?
Here are some of the reasons adult Invisalign treatment is so popular at Jaeger Orthodontics:
With Invisalign, nobody will know you’re wearing braces unless you tell them. The clear plastic aligners are completely translucent. If you care for them properly and keep your teeth clean, no one will even be able to tell they’re there. Wear them to a meeting, during a family photo, or even at a party.
No Food Restrictions
Fixed brackets and wires mean that you will have to make compromises when it comes to your favorite foods. You can’t eat things like chips, corn on the cob, or chew gum. Invisalign allows you to take your aligners out for any meal. This means that you can eat whatever you like. After you’re done, just put your aligners back in!
Invisalign is Easy to Clean
It takes patience and some skill to floss around fixed orthodontics. If you don’t have the time or energy to do this, Invisalign is a great option. You can brush and floss as normal because the aligners are removable. To remove any bacteria or debris, simply clean your aligners with a toothbrush and antibacterial hand soap before you place them back in — it’s as easy as that.
Invisalign does not require you to wear any additional appliances. Because the tray is smooth, it will follow the contours of your natural teeth. This reduces irritation. The tooth movement process feels a lot more natural without having to make adjustments at a dental office.
Invisalign Treatment is Fast
Invisalign works best for mild to moderate crowding or tooth misalignment. For simpler cases, you may see some improvement within a few months. Most patients will complete their Invisalign treatment in about 12-18 months, depending on how severe their case is. Some are as quick as six months in total!
Because you can bring the aligners home, it takes less time away from your daily schedule. No lengthy adjustments are required. Most people can expect to work in a 10 to 15-minute appointment with us every 6-8 weeks.
Why Consider Invisalign Now?
Straighter teeth can make a big difference in your oral health. Statistics show that misaligned or crooked teeth have a greater chance of developing gum disease, tooth decay, or even causing TMJ disorder.
It’s never too late for you to get the straighter smile of your dreams. Invisalign makes adult orthodontics in Coeur d’Alene more accessible to those with busy schedules and lifestyles.
