If you are suffering from a misaligned bite or gapped teeth or crooked teeth, you might have already thought about getting braces at Harmony Dental Care in Oshawa, ON. There are several reasons you might not want to go through with getting braces as an adult, though. You might think that you’re too old for braces. You might not like the idea of having metal or ceramic in your mouth. You might simply dislike the way they look. No matter what reason you have for not getting braces, you can still correct your smile at Harmony Dental Care. We are proud to offer Invisalign as an alternative treatment.
Invisalign are almost completely undetectable in your mouth, which is where they get their name from. This is just one benefit, though. You’re also going to save time using Invisalign. Normal braces can take up to four years to work properly whereas you can cut that time down to nine to twelve months using Invisalign. It all depends on how much work your mouth needs.
3-D modeling and computer technology work together to create aligners that are going to slowly adjust your teeth from their current positioning into a straight smile. In Oshawa, Invisalign is becoming increasingly popular.
When you wear traditional braces, you’re stuck wearing them all of the time until they’re removed. They’re attached to your mouth with brackets and wires, after all! Invisalign has a clear advantage here: they can be taken out at any point. If you don’t want to wear them while you eat, you don’t have to. They can also be removed while you’re brushing your teeth which will help ensure proper oral hygiene.
Even though you can take them out, make sure you’re always following the directions that your dentist at Harmony Dental Care has given you. If you don’t follow the treatment plan, it’s not going to be as fast or as effective as you’d like.
Having a straight smile is great for aesthetic reasons, but it’s also great for chewing and speaking correctly. If you want a straight smile but don’t want traditional braces, talk to your dentist about getting Invisalign today!
