InvisalignEveryone has that moment when they have had enough of their misaligned teeth. For some, the constant jaw pain has just become too much. For others, it may be an aesthetic reason that they decide to talk to an orthodontist. Whatever your motivation, Invisalign clear aligners can assist you in solving your smile problems. If you aren’t sure if it is the right time, there are some things that you may want to consider.

Your Teeth Need Alignment, but You Can’t Get Traditional Braces

In the past, there were very few options when it came to straightening your smile. You had the choice of large, bulky metal braces, or painful retainers that needed constant adjustment. With the invention of Invisalign, you can get the smile you have always wanted without the pain and discomfort that metal braces can cause. Some individuals cannot get metal braces due to gum or cheek sensitivity that worsens with the irritation of metal brackets. Invisalign clear aligners can eliminate that risk while still providing a simple, smooth method of straightening teeth.

Your Career Requires a Professional Look

While no employer would ever punish an employee for getting metal braces, it can still impact your career. In business, first impressions are everything. Wouldn’t you want your smile to be clear of metal brackets and wires? Of course, you do! If you feel uneasy in the way you look, it can impact the way you act at work. When you feel confident in your smile, you are likely to be more confident in the office. Invisalign clear aligners1 are practically invisible and straighten teeth faster than traditional braces. Leaving you to conquer your career, while we accomplish your smile goals.

You Experience Pain and Discomfort

When you have a misaligned bite, you can cause pressure in areas of your mouth and jaw. The pain can get so bad that many people falsely believe they have a cavity or even that they are in need of a root canal. Jaw pain can radiate up your face and cause headaches. The alignment of your bite is crucial to your overall health. If you are experiencing pain and discomfort, seek immediate attention from your orthodontist. They will be able to determine if it is the misalignment of your teeth that is causing the issue. They can then assess if you are a good candidate for Invisalign clear aligners or another method to adjust your bite.

You Need an Affordable Option

While Invisalign often costs more upfront than traditional metal braces, you will save money comparatively. With conventional metal braces, they need to be adjusted on a regular basis, which requires a new orthodontic appointment each and every time. This means taking time off of work, driving to their office, and waiting in the waiting room. With Invisalign clear aligners, you change out the trays on schedule and check in a few times throughout the process.

You Want the Smile You Have Always Dreamed Of

A bright and straight smile is something that every person wants. A perfect smile makes us more approachable. However, not everyone is born with perfectly aligned teeth. Thankfully, Invisalign makes it easier than ever before to get a smile that you can be proud of. Most patients can get optimal results in just 12 to 18 months, much shorter duration than traditional metal braces. Your perfect smile has never been more in reach.

How to Get Started

If you are ready to start your straightening journey with Invisalign, the first step is to contact your orthodontist and make an initial appointment. They will assess your smile, go over your medical and dental history, and evaluate whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign. You will then create a customized impression that will be used to generate the aligner trays that will be changed out on a schedule that your orthodontist dictates.

How Do I Know If I Am a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

While Invisalign is a fantastic option for many people, there are some instances where it isn’t a viable option. Invisalign clear aligners can help with mildly crooked or protruding teeth, imperfect bites, gaps, or overcrowding. However, if you have severe orthodontic issues that require a more aggressive approach, your orthodontist may recommend a different course of treatment to accomplish your goals.
