As time goes by, more and more advances in dental medicine are making the lives of millions of people more enjoyable every year. One of these advances is Invisalign®. This system is designed to align your teeth without forcing you to deal with the potentially negative side effects of traditional braces. Millions have discovered the advantages of Invisalign®, including famous actresses like Kathy Bates.
A Clear Alternative
One of the most appealing things about the Invisalign® system is the privacy it offers you. Because the system is made up of clear aligner trays that move your teeth incrementally, people may never even be aware you are undergoing treatment. The trays are custom-made and switched out after a set amount of time, so they still have the power to move your teeth in the ways your dentist wants. With no brackets and wires, they are also considered much more comfortable for you to wear. The discretion and comfort were two of the reasons Bates chose to give the system a try.
No Food Issues
Another advantage Invisalign® offers is the ability to keep your old diet and eating habits. The delicate wires and brackets used in traditional braces can break easily, so patients must often cut out some of their favorite foods throughout the duration of their treatment. This is not an issue with Invisalign® because you simply remove the trays when you eat and replace them after brushing and flossing.
For All Ages
Even though Bates was in her 50s when she decided to undergo treatment, anyone with adult teeth at any age can benefit from Invisalign®. Their comfort and ease of use and the discretion they offer can be ideal for patients of all ages.
Whether you are a teen who does not want to endure the cosmetic consequences of brackets and wires, or a seasoned actress who must maintain a certain appearance, Invisalign® may be the right choice for you.
