Benefits of Using Invisalign Over Traditional Braces
You sit down at the computer to do some research, dreading the thought of convincing your teenager that braces are a good idea. As you read through dentistry sites, you start to see there’s a new technique. Using what’s called Invisalign on teeth is a lot different from the old metal braces with wires you’re used to. As you read they’re great for adults, you start feeling your own teeth with your tongue. Maybe the best way to convince is by doing it yourself….
It’s your teen’s first high school picture day, and you can tell by the nervous energy in the room the stakes are high. You suggest a practice smile. You keep a cool look on your face, but as your kid grins, you worry you’ve passed on your genetic predisposition for crooked teeth. As you usher your teen out the door, you know they’re fine for now, but who knows what the future will hold.
You Hardly Know They’re There
Being made of clear, smooth plastic means your aligners are practically invisible when worn—a much-needed selling point when choosing them for your teenage daughter or son. No one wants the glint of metal in every picture, especially as a young adult.
If you’ve put off straightening your own teeth until adulthood, you’ll appreciate the invisible aligners as you straighten your teeth without shouting to the world and every partner at the big business meeting that you’re doing it.
