Welcome to the Perrigo Dental Care blog! We are your fun and friendly dental office in Hoover, Alabama. And since we are led by a father-son dentist duo, we are a family practice in every sense of the word. We would love the opportunity to welcome your family into the fold. We do a bang up job of keeping your mouth healthy and your smile looking great. And our services go over and above the normal offerings you might find in other practices.
One of our specialty features is Invisalign. What is Invisalign? Well, it is a system that works like braces, only better. Honestly, the Invisalign experience is nothing like conventional braces except that they both shift teeth and improve smiles.
Here’s the difference:
Invisalign works through clear aligners that are virtually impossible to see. Conventional metal braces, obviously, use metal brackets and wires to get the job done.
There’s just no getting around the fact that metal gear feels weird in your mouth and attracts unwanted attention. It causes sores and bleeding. It also traps food. Plus, it requires monthly adjustments at the orthodontist’s office and special tools for maintenance. What’s more, it never comes out of your mouth until your orthodontic treatment is complete in 2-3 long years.
Invisalign clear aligners, by contrast, feel smooth and natural. The plastic won’t ever cut you or cause any other discomfort. And it won’t draw attention to your treatment. Additionally, this system won’t require a special diet or any tools for cleaning. Instead of in-office tune-ups, you get to keep the process on-track by switching out the aligners at home, every two weeks or so. Oh, and, get this: the aligners can be taken out any time you see fit!
That means that, with Invisalign, your colleagues won’t bombard you with rude comments or awkward questions about your braces. You can go on eating whatever you want. To keep your mouth clean, you can simply brush your teeth as usual, and rinse your gear under warm water. And instead of waiting around indefinitely, you can enjoy the results in as little as 12 months time.
It couldn’t get much easier than that!
We have found that Invisalign makes a lot of sense for busy adults. There are a few disclaimers. It could take a bit longer to get the job done, depending on your situation when we get started. And not everyone is a great candidate for Invisalign. That said, if you are embarrassed by your smile, it is worth coming in for an orthodontic consultation at Perrigo Dental Care. Together, we will come up with a plan that works best for your current situation and budget.
