Learn more about the clear advantage to getting a straighter smile.
Have you assumed that you’re too old to get braces? Think braces are just for kids and teens? Think again! It’s never too late to fix misaligned or crooked teeth. Our Cedar Springs, MI, dentist Dr. Andy Setaputri has helped countless older teens and adults of all ages get healthy, straight smiles with Invisalign, a clear alternative to braces. Here are the benefits of Invisalign treatment,
A Comfortable Treatment
Some people aren’t immediately sold on getting braces because they worry about the gum irritation and sores that may come from traditional braces. Fortunately, these custom aligners made from smooth, flexible thermoplastic are designed with your comfort in mind. These aligners are uniquely made to fit your teeth, so they are more comfortable and easier to wear without having to worry about irritation or sores developing.
Promotes Better Oral Hygiene
By now you probably know that crooked and misaligned teeth are harder to properly clean, resulting in more decay and the development of gum disease. This is one of the reasons to get a straighter smile. Straight teeth aren’t just more attractive, they are also easier to keep clean since there are fewer spots for plaque and food to get trapped. By correcting your smile with Invisalign, our Cedar Springs, MI, dentist can also make it easier to brush and floss your teeth to keep your smile healthy.
Fewer Trips to the Dentist
Since we don’t need to tighten or adjust your aligners like we do traditional braces, this means that you won’t need to come in nearly as much for checkups and visits. Most patients who wear Invisalign only need to visit us every 4-6 weeks for a quick appointment where we make sure that everything is going according to your customized treatment plan.
Eat What You Want
We all know that finding out that you have to restrict what you eat to accommodate your braces can be devastating. In fact, this may leave some people on the fence about getting braces. Luckily, Invisalign aligners can be removed so you can still eat and drink whatever you want without worrying that certain foods might damage your braces. Simply remove your aligners prior to eating or drinking. It’s that simple!
