Hello and welcome to another July blog post. We hope that your summer is off to a great start and that you have had plenty of reasons to smile thus far! However, we understand that if your smile is characterized by crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, you may not feel much like sharing that fact with the world. But here’s some good news for you: our Tulsa, OK dentist’s office can likely straighten out the annoying and unhealthy situation in your mouth once and for all with an alternative orthodontic treatment system called Invisalign. Keep reading to hear our “top 5” reasons for trying Invisalign. When you are finished, be sure to follow up with the Masterpiece Smiles team and schedule your consultation with Dr. Cobble!
- The Treatment Is Subtle!
Dr. Cobble knows that no one wants to draw unwanted attention to their mouths while they are in midst of a major smile overhaul. Fortunately, with Invisalign outsiders won’t be stuck looking at a metallic construction zone every time you open your mouth. That’s because this orthodontic technique makes use of clear (nearly invisible) plastic aligners to move your teeth into better position.So, there won’t be any rude comments, questions, or nicknames. No one will ever know that you are in the midst of an orthodontic improvement project unless you choose to tell them what is going on.
- Invisalign Gear Is Removable!
Remember: once you have standard metal braces installed in your mouth, there is no getting free from it, until your treatment is completed after 2-3 long years. You just have to put up with it. Invisalign aligners are different. You can take them out for meals, to snap selfies, and really any time you feel the need so long as they stay in place for the better part of each day (we’re talking 20+ hours). This flexibility makes for a much more pleasant treatment experience overall.
- Your Lifestyle Remains The Same!
When you go with Invisalign, you won’t have to schedule time away from your job to get orthodontic tune-ups each month. Instead of that, you help manage the process by switching out your aligners for the next ones in the series (every two weeks or so). Plus, you won’t need to keep special tools on-hand, or waste time shopping for food that won’t get trapped in your metal wires and brackets. None of those problems will apply to you.
- The Aligners Are Comfortable!
Invisalign aligners won’t cause pain the way that traditional braces often do. They are more like a mouthguard in the way that they rest comfortably over your teeth. So, you won’t need to rely on waxes to form a protective barrier over your soft tissues. With your “clear braces,” there won’t be any bleeding, sores, or discomfort whatsoever.
- The Transformation Happens Fast!
For many of the patients at our Tulsa, OK dentist’s office, the best part about Invisalign is that you can look and feel much better in only about 12 months time. And once treatment is complete, your new and improved smile will be as good or better as metal braces would have delivered for you. Our only disclaimer is that it is not the best course of action for all patients, so you will definitely need to schedule that consultation to find out for sure.
