A Smile You'll Be Proud Of

If you are an adult who has braces you know the affect can be just as, or even more traumatizing than if you were a youngster. Simply because adults take more care in their appearance (hence the desire to fix ones teeth) and a disruption like braces can prevent smiling and other social necessary protocol.
Thats why Invisalign was developed. While not braces at all, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-molded to fit you. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile youll be proud of. No metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth, and best of all, most people wont notice youre in treatment.
The main benefits of the Invisalign system are greatly improved appearance and comfort. The Invisalign mouth guards are removed during eating, and when brushing and flossing. This may reduce the risk of both cavities and gum disease when compared to traditional braces that often trap food and plaque.
When you place the Invisalign system in your mouth it immediately goes to work straightening your teeth and youll feel it. But, if you have a presentation, a big date, or a meal, you can easily remove the system and joy these activities with your normal exposed teeth.
The convenience and ease of use of the Invisalign system have made it the choice of over half a million people. In fact, Invisalign has been effective in giving hundreds of thousands of people amazing new smiles.
Naturally though, the choice is up to you. A consultation with your dentist will give you a better picture of whether you are a candidate for the system or not. They will also be able to give you a price guide that will help you make this important decision.
