As they say, you only get one chance to make a first impression. What happens when you have crooked teeth? Even if you managed to avoid feeling self-conscious, other people may not like seeing that. That’s why you have thought about orthodontics, but the idea of metal braces sounds almost worse.

But what if you could get help that others have a lot of trouble noticing? With clear plastic aligners, you can gently move your teeth so your smile looks straight and aligned. Call us today at 859-474-7830 and get Invisalign in Edgewood.

Enjoy Comfortable, Discreet Orthodontics

It’s not like metal braces don’t work. They can be used to realign teeth and give you a healthy, straight smile. It’s just that all the metal on your teeth looks out of place. It’s also not very comfortable and comes with many eating restrictions. Goodbye caramel, popcorn, nuts, and grape juice!

Invisalign is different. You receive a series of plastic aligners similar to mouthguards. You wear them over your teeth, and over time, they gently move crooked teeth to where they belong. But you can take the aligners out at any time. That means there are no food restrictions. Just brush your teeth after eating, and the aligners can slide back on.

This orthodontic treatment is also much more discreet than traditional braces. Because they are made from clear, smooth plastic, they are almost impossible to see when worn. You can go through your day with Invisalign on your teeth without anyone realizing you are getting orthodontics. That’s a great thing for teens and adults alike!

Make Your Smile Healthy Again

Crooked teeth don’t just make your smile look worse. It can be a dental health problem as well. Here’s how Invisalign helps your smile become healthier.

  • Healthier gums: If your teeth are out of place, they can trap food particles right at the gumline. This increases your risk for gum disease, an infection that can make some teeth fall out.
  • Less tooth decay: Food particles can also get trapped between teeth, especially when teeth are so crooked that it’s hard to floss there. When your teeth are realigned thanks to Invisalign, it’s easier to properly clean your teeth.
  • Preventing worn enamel: When you bite down with misaligned teeth, they can rub against each other. Over time, this creates worn spots in your enamel that weaken your teeth. A proper bite from orthodontics can alleviate this problem.
  • Lesser risk of TMJ disorder: Another problem that comes from an improper bite is stress on your jaw joints (also called TMJ). If these get overstressed, you can experience TMJ disorder, which leads to pain and discomfort.

That’s why so many adults choose Invisalign. They need the healthy benefits from having a straight, even smile, not just the social benefits. Feeling confident about your smile is important, but feeling confident about a healthy smile is even better.
