Welcome back to our Advanced Dental oral health blog!
Our Las, Cruces, NM dentist’s office is here throughout the year making sure that your mouth is healthy your smile is always looking its best. And now that December is here, we wanted to remind you to take advantage of any remaining dental insurances benefits you have coming to you in 2015. It’s not too late to get an appointment with us!
If you are thinking about resolutions for the new year, we would strongly encourage you to look into a smile makeover. We can help you confront any bothersome issues that you would like to put behind you. In fact, we currently have some great orthodontic treatments that were designed specifically for busy adults.
One of these methods is called Invisalign, which is a new approach to an old problem: crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth.
Times Have Changed For Braces
When Invisalign was first introduced back in 1999, it was embraced as an alternative path to everything that people hated about the process of straightening teeth. As such, this technique is markedly different than conventional approaches to orthodontic treatment.
One of the first thing you will notice is that Invisalign works by employing a series of clear, plastic aligners (that are based on molds of your mouth) to facilitate the movements of your teeth.
Plastic? Yep. No metal is required with Invisalign!
Your aligners will be pretty much invisible, which means your treatment will be discreet and won’t attract any unwanted attention or unkind remarks from your colleagues. They won’t even know what you are up to unless you let them in on your little orthodontic secret.
To get the ball rolling, we will map out your treatment plan in advance and craft your custom aligner trays. And then every two weeks you will be responsible for switching them out yourself to keep things on track. Accordingly, there won’t be any inconvenient office visits required for adjustments.
Not unlike conventional orthodontic wires, each Invisalign tray is specifically designed to move certain teeth, at very specific times. But the difference is that the aligners fit snugly for a more comfortable experience, one that won’t cause any sores.
What’s more, they are removable, making eating a much more pleasant experience. Plus, cleaning will be a breeze. You won’t have to change your diet or carry around those burdensome tools.
You will be happy to know that these aligners can get the job done fast. There won’t be a 2-3 year waiting period for your smile transformation. The Invisalign treatment process is extremely effective and can usually be completed in about 12 months, depending on the severity of your issues when we start the process.
Regardless, you will be blown away by your new smile and so will everyone else.
