Do you remember when you were younger and picture day was the stuff of nightmares when all you focused on was your mouth full of metal? How about trying to eat popcorn or corn-on-the-cob? Modern technological advances in the field of dentistry can now allow for braces that are almost invisible while you are wearing them. They are called Invisalign and you can get them from a dentist in Cary, IL, if you live in the area. Of course, it will require you to schedule an appointment for a consultation with a dentist to see if you are a suitable candidate.
What are the Advantages of Invisalign Braces?
* The biggest difference between old-fashioned metal braces and the new and improved method of teeth straightening is appearance. Metal braces are, let’s face it, ugly. They also let food get stuck in them which can lead to embarrassing situations. Invisalign braces are clear and able to be removed which is especially nice when you want to eat popcorn during movie. People will not even know you are wearing them and they are very much far more attractive.
* Invisalign braces provide you with a comfortable pain-free way of straightening your teeth. Metal braces are physically attached to your teeth and remain there for an extended period of time. They are also known to be quite painful and need adjusting often.
* Metal braces are made of just that, and parts of them can cut and abrade the inside of your mouth which allows bacteria to grow. Invisalign on the other hand is smooth without sharp edges and unlike metal will not damage your gums or teeth.
If you are tired of crooked and misaligned teeth ruining your smile, you should make an appointment with Cary Dental Associates, LLC, to determine if you too can achieve a beautiful smile with Invisalign braces.
