If you have always wanted straight, beautiful teeth but didn’t want unsightly metal braces, there is a new option available. Invisible braces are virtually unable to be seen and are a great alternative to braces, especially for older teens and adults. Invisalign in Pasadena are convenient, easy and affordable braces. There are many advantages to choosing Invisalign in Pasadena.
How do Invisible Braces Work?
Traditional braces use metal wires that are attached to your teeth. The dentist periodically tightens the wires to pull your teeth into their proper position. Invisible braces use clear trays that are custom fitted to your teeth. They snap onto your teeth and work the same metal braces to firmly push the teeth to their position in your mouth.
To start with, the dentist takes impressions of your teeth so that invisible liners can be made to fit your teeth. Invisalign in Pasadena can be worn without anyone noticing because they are clear. You can remove them to eat and you can brush your teeth normally.
Regular visits to your dentist will allow new impressions of your teeth to be taken so that adjusted aligners can be made as your teeth begin to shift into position. New aligners are necessary to continue pushing your teeth to the their final positions within your mouth.
Advantages of Invisalign in Pasadena
You will likely notice a number of advantages of choosing Invisalign in Pasadena over traditional metal braces. The most significant advantage is that you can wear these braces without anyone really noticing. They are also much more comfortable than metal braces which could cut and scrape your gums and mouth. Invisible braces are made from a type of plastic material and have rounded corners so they fit perfectly over your teeth.
Another advantage of using invisible braces is that you can continue to properly care for your teeth while you wear them. Metal braces are awkward and difficult to manage because food particles stick between all of the tiny metal fittings.
This can cause tooth decay. Some people with metal braces have found that they needed dental work to repair their teeth after having their braces removed. That doesn’t happen with invisible braces. You simply remove them so you can eat and brush your teeth so your teeth stay clean, white and unblemished.
Invisible braces are a cost effective option because you may not need to visit the dentist as often when you wear them. However, you will still need to have regular changes made to the invisible aligners to accommodate the movement of your teeth.
Invisible braces can often straighten your teeth in the same or less time than metal braces. The length of time it will take to straighten your teeth depends on many factors and is different from person to person.
All in all, invisible braces are a good option for many people. Visit the dentist to have an exam and evaluation to determine whether invisible braces will be a good choice for your situation. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
