Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake is proud to offer one of the top orthodontic treatment options: Invisalign. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic aligners to move teeth into their ideal position. Patients can achieve a straighter smile in as little as 6 months. When it comes to choosing an orthodontic treatment as an adult, many adults hesitate to go with traditional braces. This is because they feel embarrassed by the appearance of the brackets and wires. As an alternative to traditional metal braces, our cosmetic dentists, Dr. Sepiashvili and Dr. Mejia, recommend Invisalign. Find out why Invisalign is the perfect orthodontic treatment for adults at our Lake Mohegan dental office.
Invisalign is Discreet
The first and most important reason why Invisalign is the perfect orthodontic treatment for adults is that it’s a discreet treatment. Patients will wear clear plastic aligners for the duration of their treatment. Since the aligners are clear, nobody will even notice you’re wearing them. You can complete your entire Invisalign treatment without anyone knowing about it. Adults can maintain their confidence throughout their entire orthodontic treatment by using Invisalign aligners. Invisalign eliminates the embarrassment that is usually associated with orthodontic treatments as an adult.
Invisalign is Comfortable
Not only does the appearance of your treatment matter when you’re an adult, but also the comfort. Living a busy life as an adult feels a lot harder when you have to deal with the daily discomfort of metal braces. Instead of enduring horrible scratches and cuts in your mouth from sharp brackets and wires, you can complete your orthodontic treatment with only the feeling of smooth plastic in your mouth. In addition, the soreness you would normally feel after having your braces tightened is significantly less with Invisalign because your teeth are moving in smaller amounts. Every 2 weeks you will switch to a new set of aligners while with regular braces you would visit your orthodontist every 6 weeks. The adjustments are much smaller with Invisalign, resulting in less pain and discomfort overall.
Invisalign is Convenient
Not only is Invisalign invisible and comfortable, but it’s convenient. Feel free to enjoy all of your favorite foods throughout your treatment. You need to remove your aligners every time you want to eat or drink something other than water. They’re also convenient for brushing and flossing your teeth properly. Simply remove the aligners and brush and floss as normal. With regular braces, you would have to use special floss to work around the wires and spend extra time picking food out of your brackets.
