If you want to straighten your teeth without the hassle of braces, then Invisalign might be for you! At Charlotte Progressive Dentistry, we want you to be able to have strong healthy teeth that look and feel great without having to go through the discomfort that often accompanies braces. Here are a few reasons why we believe Invisalign could be a better option.
If you’re already self-conscious about how your teeth look, the last thing you want to do is draw attention to them with the twisted metal of braces. As the name suggests, Invisalign is practically invisible! Rather than sitting on top of your teeth, these clear aligners fit their shape, allowing for discrete corrections.
Another advantage of Invisalign over braces is that they are removable! This means you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss as normal. With braces, you have to be careful about what you eat and need to be particular about how well you brush around the brackets and wires.
Because Invisalign is less invasive, you won’t need to come in for as many appointments. With braces, you often have to have them tightened, which can be painful, or have wires replaced. Invisalign appointments are much less frequent, and typically, you’re given multiple aligners that you simply change out every two weeks.
While Invisalign will take some getting used to, they are far more comfortable than braces. As you progress through your Invisalign program, you’ll likely feel an initial tightness with each new set as your teeth are slowly corrected. But with braces, you have to watch out for the sharp edges of the brackets that can irritate your cheeks and tongue.
Invisalign is a great way to get the smile you’ve always wanted without the discomfort and inconvenience of braces. If you’re considering Invisalign, contact Charlotte Progressive Dentistry today! We’d be happy to answer any questions you have and help you get started on your journey to a straighter smile.
