In addition to providing cosmetic and implant dentistry services to patients of all ages, Picasso Smiles Dental also offers the latest in orthodontic care. An increasing number of patients we see at our El Paso dental practice are adults who wish to straighten their teeth using Invisalign. Unlike traditional metal braces which are most often associated with teenagers, Invisalign clear braces are very discreet as no metal whatsoever is used.
Crooked teeth are unsightly and many people believe conventional metal braces are too. Invisalign offers a way to correct crooked teeth in a manner that’s practically invisible. Instead of using noticeable metal bands and wire, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that fit snugly over the teeth. Because the smooth, comfortable aligners are translucent, this teeth straightening option is virtually undetectable. Invisalign is just as effective as metal braces but when you’re wearing this orthodontic treatment option, you and your dentist can be the only ones who know you’re straightening your teeth.
Shortened Treatment Time and Minimal Impact on Your Everyday Life
If you’re an adult who is self-conscious about having crooked teeth but are apprehensive about the length of orthodontic treatment, you should know that Invisalign treatment frequently takes far less time to complete in comparison to metal braces. In fact, it can take up to five years to complete treatment with metal braces but with Invisalign, treatment is often completed in just six months to a year.
One of the best things about Invisalign is the convenience factor. When you’re wearing Invisalign custom-molded aligners, you can take the aligners out when eating and when brushing and flossing your teeth. This makes Invisalign very convenient to wear as there are no food restrictions to worry about no you have to bother with removing small pieces of food from between metal brackets and wires after eating – which is something you’d have to do if you were wearing metal braces. Instead of interfering with your busy lifestyle, Invisalign perfectly and seamlessly fits into your lifestyle.
When wearing metal braces, many people feel self-conscious as more attention is drawn to their teeth. But when Invisalign is worn, a perfect smile can be achieved with complete confidence as people will concentrate on you and not on a mouthful of metal braces.
Many Problems can be Corrected with Invisalign
Invisalign can be worn by adults and teens with certain orthodontic problems. This orthodontic treatment option is even perfect for adults who wore braces when they younger but found that their teeth have shifted out of place due to not wearing their retainers as they were prescribed.
Whether you’re interested in our El Paso Invisalign aligners for yourself or wonder if this treatment option would be right for your teenager, we encourage you to contact us today to schedule an appointment. The chances are that you or your teen are the ideal candidate for Invisalign – the smart, clear alternative to conventional metal braces!
