Braces are a reality for many people. In fact, at any one time in the United States, up to 4 million people are wearing braces or some sort of correctional oral gear, including adults, children, and teenagers. While it is nice to know that there are so many other people out there wearing braces, it’s even nicer to know that there is an alternative to traditional braces. Dr. Paul Miller specializes in the Invisalign system. The great part about Invisalign is that you can actively correct problems without anyone ever knowing that you’re wearing braces! What are some other benefits of Invisalign, you ask?
- No brackets – One of the worst parts of conventional braces are the brackets. They can feel unattractive as well as uncomfortable and irritating. With Invisalign, the only thing you have in your mouth is a clear retainer that is specifically designed to fit your mouth comfortably and accurately.
- Cleaner – Wires and brackets tend to trap food and are very difficult and time consuming to clean. They require extra, sometimes expensive, cleaners and a lot of time to remove food from underneath them. They can also leave calcium deposits that are impossible to get rid of. A benefit of Invisalign is that it is simple to take off for mealtimes and easy to keep clean. You can keep your normal brushing and flossing routine!
- Better visual aesthetic – Whether you’re a teenager who would rather not show off the fact that you’re straightening your teeth or an adult who is entering the business world, Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth without announcing it to the world. It can improve your self-esteem and straighten your teeth at the same time. What more could you ask for?
