Invisalign offers a revolutionary orthodontic treatment to give you a perfect smile, without the need for braces
According to a study commissioned by the American Association of Orthodontists, 77% of women think crooked teeth are worse than a receding hairline in a potential love interest. On a professional level, 78% of Americans perceive adults with crooked teeth to be unsuccessful. However, most professionals don’t want to undergo traditional orthodontic treatment, as conspicuous and uncomfortable braces can be a social burden or unsuitable to professional and social lives. Fortunately, at Larry Saylor’s cosmetic dental practice in Brandon, near Tampa, Florida, we use revolutionary orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth without braces.
Invisalign offers orthodontic treatment without the need for braces…
Invisalign can transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day professional or social lives. Invisalign is virtually invisible, comfortable, and removable, which are all factors that make it lifestyle friendly. A series of clear and customized aligners sit over your dental arches and exert a gentle amount of pressure onto your teeth. Each aligner is manufactured especially for your teeth, and approximately every two weeks we will give you a new set of aligners. Your teeth will gradually move until they have straightened to their final position.
The duration of your Invisalign treatment will depend on your individual circumstances. For most adults, treatment is completed in less than one year. Come and speak to us at Larry Saylor’s dental practice to see if Invisalign will fit your circumstances and requirements.
A correct, straight smile can improve your oral health…
In addition to giving you back your confidence and self-esteem with a straight, aligned smile, Invisalign can enhance your oral health. Overcrowded or widely spaced teeth, and cross-bites, overbites and underbites can increase your risk of oral health conditions such as gum diseases, abnormal wear and tear on your teeth, and jaw and joint problems.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t use any metal bands, brackets or wires that are notorious for trapping food and plaque. Because Invisalign is removable, you can maintain a good oral hygiene routine with no extra effort. Some of the other oral health benefits of Invisalign include:
- Healthier gums – teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced can cause signs of periodontal (gum) disease, such as swollen gums and redness. Your gum health may also improve after Invisalign treatment.
- Improved chewing and speech – incorrectly positioned teeth and jaws can lead to speech difficulties and uncomfortable chewing. Invisalign can improve both of these problems by aligning your teeth and jaw in a more correct position.
- Maintained comfort and tooth structure – incorrectly aligned jaws and teeth can result in abnormal stress on these areas, and can even cause painful trauma to supporting bone and jaw joints. Invisalign treatment can improve the alignment of your teeth and your bite, preventing continued problems in the future.
Invisalign is the first virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. While people may have avoided orthodontic treatment in the past because the traditional treatments may cause low self-esteem and social burdens, Invisalign provides an ideal solution for those who want to make a change to their smile and oral health. You can undergo treatment to improve your smile without anyone noticing. Its clear appearance, combined with the convenience of a removable, comfortable fit, has made Invisalign popular with more than one million patients worldwide.
