If you are like most people, you do not look back fondly on those awkward years in middle school or high school when you had a mouth full of braces. Even if other kids were not cruel enough to call you tinsel teeth and other mean names, you probably remember lisping when you spoke and the pain that came with adjustments at the orthodontist. All that, and now as an adult your teeth have shifted out of alignment again!
Whether or not you have gone through the pain and awkwardness of traditional braces, you are likely not looking forward to the prospect of wearing them as an adult. Fortunately, with Invisalign clear braces, you have a much better alternative. At Rockville Dental Arts in Rockville, MD, we can help you get the straight, beautiful smile you want without a mouth full of metal for months or years.
Essentially, Invisalign works through a series of progressive transparent aligners. These are specifically made to fit your mouth and to slowly move your teeth into the correct positions. You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks each and you will only take them out to brush and floss or to eat and drink. If you are drinking water, you can leave them in and you should because they work better and faster if you take them out for no more than two hours each day.
In addition to being much less awkward and obtrusive than traditional braces, these clear braces also have a few other benefits as well. They work faster than most braces and they do not require you to visit your dentist periodically for those painful tightening appointments. Invisalign aligners are also more comfortable than braces, and they are better for your teeth, as they don’t keep you from brushing or flossing normally.
When you make an appointment to discuss the alignment of your teeth, your dentist in Rockville will examine your teeth and then go over your options with you. If Invisalign is right for you, we will take impressions of your teeth and have your clear braces made especially for you. Then you will come in to ensure that your first set of aligners fit properly and you will be on your way to a gorgeous smile in less time than you might think.
