Do you hate your crooked smile? Does it make you look silly or even uneducated? Does it make it painful to eat your favorite foods? Or are you noticing pain in your jaw or TMJ?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, you may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment. But it can be hard for any adult to swallow the idea of wearing traditional metal braces to work or social gatherings.
Luckily, it’s the 21st century and Invisalign is now available in South Bend, IN. At Tulip Tree Dental Care, we’ve used to Invisalign to reshape the smiles of the busiest adults including lawyers, doctors, and single parents. So why do busy adults choose Invisalign? We’re glad you asked!
Reason #1: Invisalign Won’t Give You Metal Mouth
Nobody likes the idea of walking around with a mouthful of metal brackets and wires. Sure it may have been socially acceptable when you were in middle school or high school. But as an adult? No way! What would your coworkers think? What would your friends and family say?
Traditional adult braces can make you look inexperienced, immature, or worse. But that’s not something you have to worry about with Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are clear and blend into your smile when they are worn properly. Many people won’t even realize that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment!
Reason #2: Invisalign is a Comfortable Orthodontic Treatment
Traditional adult braces use uncomfortable metal brackets and wires to yank your teeth into proper positioning. The wires and brackets can scratch up your teeth and gums. Then you have to suffer through countless orthodontist appointments as your braces are tightened.
That’s no say nothing of the inconvenience you face when you want to eat your favorite foods! Certain foods can become painfully lodged in-between the brackets and wires of your braces. Other foods, like crusty bread or steak, could even knock a bracket right off of your teeth!
Luckily there is a more comfortable option! Invisalign aligners are made out of comfortable molded plastic that is customized to your unique smile. You wear each aligner for around 20-22 hours a day and your aligner gently repositions your teeth. This no uncomfortable adjustments or tightenings required. You might even forget that you’re wearing your aligner!
Plus meal time is a breeze with Invisalign. Your Invisalign aligners are removable, so you simply take them out when you’re ready to have a meal or snack. That means all of your favorite foods are back on the menu where they belong!
Reason #3: Invisalign is Faster Than Traditional Adult Braces
Two years. That’s the length of a congressional term. That’s two Super Bowls. That’s two World Series. That’s how long you’d have to wear traditional adult braces. That’s two years in which you’d have to go to countless orthodontist appointments. That’s two years of missing work or your child’s little league games because you’re stuck in the orthodontist office.
If your a busy adult, it can honestly be hard to make time to undergo orthodontic treatment. At Tulip Tree Dental Care, we understand that fact. That’s why we are proud to offer Invisalign. Invisalign works in about one year for most adults, that’s half the time as traditional adult braces! Plus your Invisalign dentist we give you several Invisalign aligners at a time so there’s far fewer appointments and check-ups to worry. Invisalign can fit into your schedule!
