For years, you’ve been hesitant to smile for photos. You’ve also become more withdrawn because you desperately wish you had a perfect smile. You imagine how you’d glow, exuding joy. But, unfortunately, you’re reminded that this is just a dream, and the reality is that you’re still stuck in the same situation. Well, your dentist wants you to know about the benefits of Invisalign in Ridgefield and how it can deliver the smile and confidence that you’ve been wanting for so long.
What are Invisalign Clear Braces?
Invisalign clear braces offer an alternative to traditional metal braces. They are made from clear, Bisphenol A (BPA) free plastic, and molded into trays that fit your teeth, comfortably encouraging them to adjust until the final desired look is achieved.
How the Process Works
The process begins with an initial visit to your dentist to discuss your desired look and to ensure that you are eligible to wear Invisalign clear braces. During the same visit, your dentist in Ridgefield will take X-rays, photographs, and make dental impressions.
Your specifications will be sent off to form your custom Invisalign trays, and you’ll return for the initial fitting. You will be given the entire number of trays necessary to create your dream smile, and will put in a new one every two weeks, until the completion of your process.
Some of the Benefits of Invisalign
There are several reasons that Invisalign has become such a popular means of straightening teeth. Here are a few of them:
- Convenience – One of the conveniences of wearing Invisalign is that they are removable. Thus, when you eat, you can enjoy your food as normal. However, it’s important to remember that your Invisalign tray must be worn at least 22 hours a day.
- Oral Hygiene – One of the major benefits of being able to remove your Invisalign trays is that it allows you to clean your teeth and gums thoroughly. This affords you the ability to maintain a level of oral hygiene that is unmatched by metal braces, because you can floss your teeth, removing the harmful bacteria that reside just below the gum line.
- Time – Typically, the Invisalign process is much shorter than that of traditional braces, which can be 2 or more years. Instead, the former can often times deliver your desired smile in 12 to 15 months. Of course, this timeframe depends on how severe your situation is from the start.
- Dignity – You don’t want to alert the world that you’re wearing braces, and you’d like to maintain some dignity in your appearance while correcting your smile. Invisalign offers this with its clear braces that blend in with your natural teeth.
Take solace in knowing that you now have the answer to your woes. You are free to have the big, full, perfect smile you’ve desired all your life. This is the dawn of a new era for you, and your cosmetic dentist in Ridgefield is happy to guide you along the journey.
