Hello and welcome to another September edition of the Advanced Dental of Las Cruces blog!
We hope that you are enjoying this beautiful season on that you have plenty to smile about! You may not feel much like smiling, though, if you have been plagued by problems that are impacting the health and appearance of your teeth.
But, take heart, if you have crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth, our Las Cruces, New Mexico dental team has a solution for you: adult orthodontics! Namely, Invisalign. This is an innovative approach to treatment that sidesteps the need for conventional metal brackets and wires.
To see if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, you will need to arrange for a consultation with Dr. Reiter. But first, keep reading to see if you like what Invisalign is all about!
1. Wonderfully Discreet
No orthodontic patient wants to draw extra attention to the construction zone in their mouth. Invisalign makes it easy to hide what you are up to by using clear (almost invisible) plastic aligners to nudge your teeth into a preferred placement.
2. Removable Gear
You can’t take a break from the metal wires and brackets that braces require until treatment wraps up in 2-3 long years.
Invisalign aligners, by contrast, are removable. So, you can pop your gear out for eating, snapping selfies, and any other time that makes sense to you. Full disclosure: they do have to stay in most of the time. But that is better than ALL of the time, right?
3. No Lifestyle Disruptions
Invisalign saves you time. It used to be that you would have to take time off from work or school to get your conventional braces adjusted every month. Now, with Invisalign, you can do it yourself by switching out your aligners for the next ones in the series. Plus, you won’t have to alter your diet, purchase easier to eat foods, or spend time prying food out of your gear with special tools.
4. Comfortable Treatment
Here’s the thing: metal is never going to feel right in your mouth. But Invisalign aligners won’t hurt you like the harsh traditional equipment would. They are more like a mouthguard in the way that they rest gently and comfortably over your teeth. This means that there won’t be any bleeding, sores, or discomfort along the way! And, like we said, you get to take breaks on a daily basis!
5. Fast Results
Metal braces take 2-3 years to deliver any real results. But you can boost your health and appearance in a big way after only about 12 months of wearing Invisalign aligners.
Take The Next Step!
We hope you have been inspired by today’s post to improve your situation. Even if your teen years are far behind you, there is still time to straighten out the issues in your mouth.
