Reasons to Treat Yourself to Straighter Teeth This 2020

Why not take this new year as an opportunity to secure not only excellent general health but oral wellness as well? If you are among those people who kept on delaying an orthodontic treatment due to several reasons, why not do it now! There is no longer a need to dream for the smile you have always wanted since it is already achievable. At Philip M. Tornatore, we offer Invisalign for a more discreet, comfortable, and convenient alternative to metal braces. Instead of metal, this approach utilizes clear thermoplastic that is molded to fit over the upper and lower dental arches. Not too sure if undergoing a clear aligner treatment is worth it?

Reasons to Consider Invisalign

Shorter treatment duration

Probably one of the most favorable advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces is that it requires lesser time to complete. Instead of wearing brackets and wires for over a year or two, it is possible to get the results in just one! But this is only highly possible if the patient follows all the advice given by the dentist.

No restrictions on food

The problem of wearing metal braces is, patients may be told to avoid certain foods that can easily get caught on the orthodontic appliance or are hard to remove. In the case of Invisalign, eating won’t be an issue since patients are actually advised to remove the aligner trays to prevent it from being damaged. Since there is nothing that can get in the way, patients are free to eat whatever they want as long as the aligner is worn over the mouth for 20 to 22 hours a day. 

Reduced pain and discomfort

Since Invisalign no longer use metal, patients can rest easy that the smooth material used for the aligners won’t cause any irritations as traditional braces do. Although there is soreness present after wearing aligners for the first time, this sensation will disappear as soon as the mouth adjusts to the oral appliance.

Improved self-confidence

Invisalign can change how people feel about themselves. By correcting the teeth imperfections that make people self-conscious, patients can surely look forward to showing off their smiles confidently. Plus, patients can already do so even during the treatment itself since Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. Thus, there’s no need for them to worry about highly noticeable components bonded on their teeth.
