Welcome back to our Las Cruces, NM dentistry blog!
Our Advanced Dental team is here throughout the year making sure that your smile is healthy and always looking its best.
If you have long been haunted by certain dental issues, we suggest that you use this Halloween season to treat yourself to a smile makeover.
You might be surprised by the ways in which we can transform an ordinary smile (or one that is flawed) into something truly amazing.
We have a few tricks up our sleeves, including adult orthodontics. That’s right, dignified braces designed for grown ups rather than middle school kids.
One of these methods is called Invisalign, an orthodontic treatment for folks who could benefit from a realignment.
Braces Aren’t Like They Used To Be
We all have our memories/horror stories of kids with braces.
Maybe you vividly recall the conventional braces your friends wore in middle school or even high school.
If so, you probably haven’t forgotten the poor kids’ nicknames either, or the weird tools they carried around for cleaning their gear. They may have been absent a lot too, getting adjusted at the orthodontist’s office.
But that is not what you would be signing on for with Invisalign.
If your teeth are crowded, gapped, or crooked, Invisalign can provide a less time consuming and less bothersome method of treatment than traditional braces, though the end result will be just as stunning.
Do we have your interest now?
Invisalign Is Special
Invisalign was introduced back in 1999 as an antidote to everything that people hated about the process of straightening teeth.
Accordingly, this technique is markedly different than conventional approaches to orthodontic treatment.
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.
That’s right, no metal whatsoever!
These aligners are nearly invisible which means your treatment will be discreet and won’t attract any unwanted attention or commentary from your peers. They won’t even know what you are up to unless you spill the beans.
With Invisalign, we can actually plot out your entire treatment and design your aligner trays during your preliminary consultation. Then every two weeks or so you can switch them out yourself to keep things moving forward. As such, there won’t be any inconvenient office visits required for adjustments. No time off work will be required to transform your smile.
Much like traditional 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.
Plus, they are removable making mealtime a lot more enjoyable, and cleaning a breeze. You won’t have to adapt your lifestyle to your treatment or carry around those annoying tools.
The best part is that this system works efficiently.
You won’t be stuck in braces for 2-3 years waiting on the desired changes because the Invisalign treatment process is extremely effective and can be completed in about 12 months, depending on the severity of your issues.
In the end, you will be astonished by your new smile and so will your friends!
