Invisalign Is Easier Than You Think

Hello again! Welcome back to another December edition of the Perrigo Dental Care blog. Today we want to talk about crooked teeth. And crowded teeth. And gapped teeth. Basically, the sort of teeth that could benefit from braces.

Do you have any troublesome aspects of your smile that you would like to correct? What would you think about getting an orthodontic treatment to straighten out the issues in your mouth? Healthier teeth and gums, and a more radiant smile would be among the benefits. Along with that would come an increase in self-confidence and happiness.

Sounds pretty good, right?

So what would keep you from following through?

Are you feeling like you’re too old for braces?

Do you imagine that treatment would take too long and entail a lot of discomfort?

Well, think again!

At Perrigo Dental Care, you can get a non-invasive, short-term orthodontic treatment right here in Hoover, Alabama, that will work wonders for your smile, and it is designed with adults in mind.

Invisalign: A Modern Approach To Straightening Teeth

When Invisalign was introduced back around the turn of the century, it radically changed the way we think about orthodontic solutions.

This system of clear braces works without placing any metal whatsoever in your mouth.

Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign works through a series of clear, plastic aligners (that are based on molds of your mouth) to facilitate the shifting of your teeth.

One nice feature is that Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, which means your treatment will be discreet and won’t be noticed by your colleagues. The aligners are actually more like whitening trays than braces, which makes for an extremely comfortable treatment experience.

With the Invisalign system, we can map out your entire treatment in advance and design your aligner trays for each period of adjustment. Then every two weeks or so you can switch them out yourself to keep things moving forward. The good news is that you won’t have to take time off work each month for the type of office visits that are normally required for tuning-up conventional braces.

Old school braces would be installed in left in your mouth for 2-3 years without respite. But Invisalign aligners are removable. You can take them out whenever you need to (as long as they stay in 20+ hours per day). This makes eating a more pleasant experience, and you won’t have to change your diet. Plus, for cleaning you just pop them out and rinse them under warm water instead of carrying around special brushes and tools.

The best part is that the process is extremely effective and can be completed in about 12 months, depending on the severity of your dental issues when we get started.

We think that you will have something to smile about when we are through. Invisalign can change your life forever. And it doesn’t require any lifestyle changes or unpleasantries.

Now that you know the possibilities, we hope you will want to learn more and get started.
