Invisalign: Is It Right For Me?

Straight Smiles Without Metal Thanks To Invisalign | Tulip Tree Dental Care

Welcome to the ongoing dental blog of Tulip Tree Dental Care! Today, we would love to talk to you about Invisalign. Invisalign is a revolutionary form of alignment therapy that doesn’t rely on the old methods of orthodontic treatment. Invisalign uses comfortable technology to move your teeth into their proper position FASTER than traditional braces. This awesome alignment technology can help you or your child or teen get the orthodontic care you need without the hassle.

Our South Bend, IN dental office offers Invisalign clear alignment therapy to patients of all ages. If you are looking for a comfortable, convenient, and quick way to straighten your teeth, you have found it. Let’s talk about each of these amazing benefits and how they can help you get the results you want.

Invisalign may be right for you if you want …

… comfortable treatment that doesn’t cause you pain.

Traditional orthodontics come with a bunch of metal parts — namely brackets and wires — that have the potential to scratch and poke you. Typically, at some point during treatment, this does in fact happen. With Invisalign, you won’t ever have to worry about the discomfort of metal appliances in your mouth. Invisalign is made up of clear plastic aligners that are smooth and comfortable when worn.

Traditional braces also can cause discomfort when the wires need to be tightened. I think we’ve probably all met someone who just got their braces or has recently had a wire tightened … they say the discomfort is debilitating. They often can’t eat properly or are simply in pain. With Invisalign, this sort of discomfort is also completely off the table. When you change out your aligner, the only thing you will feel is a mild pressure — never the pain associated with a tightened wire.

… convenient therapy that allows you to eat what you want, clean your teeth easily, and generally go about living your life.

Metal braces are a permanent fixture in your mouth. Eventually, after two or three years, you will be released from their restrictions. Invisalign never holds you prisoner — Invisalign aligners are 100 percent removable. You can, and should, remove them for eating, drinking, and hygiene. They can also be removed for special occasions so they will never be in your way.

However, you should be careful — Invisalign aligners do need to be worn for at least 22 hours each day in order to best do their job. We recommend removing them only when you have to. The good news is that Invisalign aligners are so comfortable, you will forget you are wearing them. Let us know if you think you will have trouble leaving your aligners in for at least 22 hours each day.

… fast results that last.

Invisalign offers results in only about 12 months. That’s at least twice as fast as traditional braces. If you are looking for orthodontic care that won’t have you trapped in a metal cage for two or three years, this truly may be your solution!

… orthodontic treatment that won’t attract attention.

Do you want to avoid attracting unwanted attention? Metal braces are simply unsightly and can create a lot of distraction at work or school. Invisalign aligners are nearly INVISIBLE in your mouth. If you are looking for a discreet way to treat your alignment problems, this option is for you.

With Invisalign, you will not have to live with the embarrassment of traditional braces. You can go on living your life the way you want to — your peers and co-workers may not even notice you are wearing your aligners! We will be happy to help you achieve a beautiful, straight smile without the hassle. Simply schedule a consultation to get started.
