Misaligned, crooked teeth can do a number on your self-confidence over the years. If you are tired of having teeth that you feel you have to hide, there is no longer any reason to avoid getting them fixed. Many adults shy away from traditional braces because they are embarrassed, but Invisalign provides an option that is virtually unnoticeable but will still straighten your teeth.
Traditional braces are actually fixed to the teeth and can’t be removed until the treatment is finished. With Invisalign or clear braces, trays can be removed when you need a break or want to eat. In this way, you have the option to remove your straighteners when they become uncomfortable, making for a more comfortable treatment.
Invisalign is known for being faster than traditional braces, with treatment only lasting a year to 18 months total, when traditional braces can take up to five years. During this time, your teeth are gradually moved by aligners that are changed out every one to two weeks.
As an adult, it can be difficult to make the decision to undergo treatment for straighter teeth from a cosmetic dentist in Thousand Oaks, CA. Many fear the appearance of metal braces and wonder how they will feel with constant worry that there is food in their teeth. In this way, Invisalign provides huge benefits.
Invisalign aligners or trays are completely clear. They can be removed whenever you need to eat or speak in front of a group of people. There is no fear of food being stuck in your braces or of attention being attracted to your teeth when they are virtually invisible.
