While few of us are born with perfect teeth, oftentimes our Houston patients prefer not to opt for a teeth straightening treatment out of a lack of time. However, crooked, crowded, and misaligned teeth can lead to a variety of dental health problems because maintaining good oral hygiene is more difficult when some tooth surfaces are hard to reach. Thus, leaving an imperfect smile untreated is not advised. Fortunately, there is a modern alternative to traditional metal braces that makes achieving a brilliantly straight smile comfortable, efficient, and convenient: Invisalign. By replacing the metal components of traditional braces with a set of clear plastic aligners, Invisalign can restore the luster to your smile on your own schedule and time.
Invisalign for the Busy
At USPARKLE, we understand you’re busy, whether at work, at home, or at school. That’s why we recommend Invisalign to those who are candidates for clear braces. The plastic aligners, or trays, are typically praised for their virtual invisibility, but they grant additional benefits as well. Invisalign helps you save time when it matters by making the entire process easier and by reducing the amount of work teeth straightening requires of the patient. Never before has a beautiful, straight smile been easier to attain.
Traditional braces consist of a network of metal braces and wires cemented onto your teeth. When you brush and floss, you’ll have to painstakingly clean behind the metal components to get those hard-to-reach tooth surfaces. Failure to maintain adequate oral hygiene can result, as aforementioned, in deteriorating oral health, which includes a greater risk of periodontal disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. Invisalign does away with the added complexity of keeping a clean mouth, as your clear aligners are meant to be removed before brushing. For those who sometimes need to brush their teeth on the fly, Invisalign helps reduce the likelihood of an excessive accumulation of plaque and bacteria.
Those burdened with metal braces are required to visit their dentist every two weeks for the regular tightening and adjusting of the wires. With Invisalign those appointments are a thing of the past. Instead, you’ll come into our Houston, TX office only once every six weeks — in other words, clear braces cut the amount of time you’ll spend at the dentist by two-thirds. Instead of the periodic tightening of wires, you’ll receive a new set of aligners every two weeks. Invisalign works on your schedule, so you can pop your old trays out and put the new ones in where and when it’s most convenient to you.
The removability feature of the Invisalign aligners is icing on the cake. If you rather not wear the trays during important business meetings or for special events, you are absolutely free to remove the aligners. Metal braces simply cannot offer you the same degree of freedom as Invisalign clear braces.
