Invisalign® is a system of clear aligners that slowly move your teeth into place. The clear braces system is not for everyone, but could be what you have been looking for if you are not happy with your grin.
Having a smile that you are self-conscious about doesn’t do much for your self-esteem. Covering your mouth when you talk or when attempting a half smile is a dead giveaway that you are not happy with your reflection.
According to your dentist in Independence, a healthy, beautiful smile does wonders for your confidence and your overall health.
If you follow Dr. Schaefer’s Blog, you will know that research has indicated a link between gum and tooth health and overall health. You may think that a straight smile is purely cosmetic, but it really is much more than that.
A healthy straight smile prevents food particles from lodging between cracks and crevices that would not be there with a straight smile. Invisalign® is the answer if you have been considering clear braces.
What Does Invisalign® Work For?
- Correcting overbites, crossbites and underbites
- Closing gaps
- Evening out teeth that are crowded
Are Clear Braces Better than Wires and Brackets?
Although both have advantages and disadvantages, Invisalign® is better at preventing cavities as the aligners are removed when you eat, brush, and floss.
You also have to be careful of the foods you eat or risk a broken bracket or wire. Anyone who has or is wearing conventional braces understands the embarrassment of giving a presentation with something stuck in the wires and brackets.
Less Time with Invisalign®
With invisible braces, you will enjoy fewer visits with your cosmetic dentist in Independence. You will only have to see Dr. Schaefer every six weeks to make sure your treatment is working to plan.
If a straighter smile is on your bucket list, do it now and schedule complimentary Invisalign® consultation with Dr. Schaefer. Your Independence dentist is a preferred Invisalign® provider and can help you like your reflection again.
