You’re getting ready for the big presentation at work. Your ideas are clear, your power point is perfect, and you’re all prepared when you feel the familiar butterflies in your stomach. Speaking in front of groups always terrifies you. Not because you’re not confident about your topic or your speaking skills, but because you’re embarrassed to smile in front of others. You’ve lived with crooked teeth all of your life, but it’s in times like these that you would love to be able to flash a confident smile to the group. You’ve considered straightening your teeth, but the thought of wearing metal braces seems worse than the crooked teeth. Invisalign might be the solution for you! Your Invisalign dentist in Scarborough, Ontario discusses how Invisalign can improve your smile.
What is Invisalign?
Instead of utilizing metal braces to straighten your teeth Invisalign uses snug fitting aligners made of clear plastic that are virtually invisible. The snug fit also makes them comfortable to wear and ensures that they don’t interfere with talking, smiling or any of your other daily activities. Aligners are also removable for brushing, flossing and eating.
You’ll needs to wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day, and change them every two weeks. Your dentist will create the treatment plan that your aligners are fabricated from, so you’ll need to visit your dentist every few weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Most Invisalign cases take 12-18 months to complete and the result is a straight and beautiful smile that you can share confidently with the world!
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
If Invisalign sounds like the solution you’ve been looking for, the first step is to contact your dental provider to determine if Invisalign is the right option for you. Your dentist will complete an exam, x-rays and photos to ensure that Invisalign will work for you. With 3D imaging you’ll even be able to see what your straightened smile will look like prior to starting treatment!
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
The benefits that Invisalign offers are many. Because aligners are removable, you don’t have the restrictions to your diet that you would have with traditional braces.
Your home care routine also stays the same so your oral health doesn’t suffer during treatment. Of course the benefit that patients enjoy most is the fact that they’re able to achieve a straighter smile without anyone noticing their treatment.
