Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened
Last Updated on
The ever so wise Dr. Seuss once said “don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened.” But if you don’t like your smile, you’re going to do a whole lot less of it. If you’ve been doing a lot of crying over your crooked smile, learn how an orthodontist can transform your pearly whites into something that you would be proud to show off to the world.
What Is Invisalign?
They are a set of aligning braces that are custom made for each and every client. The aligners are made of invisible plastic that fit comfortably over your natural teeth. These special types of braces eventually push your teeth into place using movements that your orthodontist will carefully plan.
Are These Aligners Better?
Invisalign does not use metal brackets or wires that can hurt your teeth. All you have to do is put in a new set of aligners every other week. You do this until your teeth push into place. What makes these aligners better than the alternative is that you can wear them without putting too much hassle into your life.
You can do many of the things in your normal daily routine that you did before you got the aligners. To eat meals, simply remove them and consume your food as you normally would. If you play contact sports that require a mouthguard, remove them and wear your mouthguard in your accustomed manner.
Brushing and flossing is far from from difficult when you wear these corrective guards. During your morning and evening routines, remove them from your mouth, then brush and floss in the manner you normally would.
If Invisalign braces sounds like a treatment that could get you smiling again, contact Nease and Higginbotham Orthodontics to see what an orthodontist from our office can do to make your Cheshire smile happen.
