Struggles with alignment are some of the most common reasons for visiting a dental professional. But the idea of large and painful braces for such a long period of time is unappealing. In turn, it may feel easier to ignore the issue and simply accept it.
But you don’t have to live like that! With clear aligner trays from Invisalign®, you may find relief without anyone else needing to know. It’s your mouth, keep your improvement private, as you do with other medical procedures. Today, your Seattle, WA dentist writes on how this technology may be a fantastic way for you to regain your confidence and look your best!
Feel And Look Your Best
Often, when your alignment is off, you can find it difficult to have the self-confidence that you deserve. After all, our mouths are one of the first things that new people see whenever we meet. So when you are not giving your best appearance there, you may be starting off at a disadvantage from the start. You don’t have to let your true self be held back by your smile!
One of the greatest benefits of this process over traditional braces is that these aligner trays are clear. People who you meet (and those you’ve known for years) can simply see an improvement over time, without making your oral health a conversation piece. Even when you’re at your best, this attention can often feel like a spotlight on your mouth. The most important thing is the result and your continuing oral health, above everything else.
How Do They Work?
The process and concept of clear aligner tray technology is rather straightforward. In this way, it is similar to traditional braces technology. Over time, these aligners will gently readjust the location of your teeth within your jaw. But unlike braces, these do not require cement onto your enamel. And instead of pulling your teeth from these points, they are guided slowly and gently.
This can have benefits in a few ways. Firstly, this is a less invasive procedure, and it can mean less of a struggle with discomfort. The points of contact between your enamel and the device are much larger than with traditional methods. This means that the stress is spread further through the mouth.
You will wear these throughout the day, removing them only for specific actions. These include eating and your daily oral health maintenance. This is hygiene activities like brushing and flossing. Always make sure that you keep up with this at all times, but especially when undergoing additional dental procedures.
