When you smile into the mirror, do you notice a healthy, happy smile that reflects a charming and friendly personality? Or do you notice teeth that are crooked, misaligned or a bite that is out of place? Could straighter teeth give you a much-needed boost in confidence? Many adults consider these questions but worry about the appearance of traditional braces. However, with Invisalign patients of Dr. Adnan Saleem in Carrollton, TX, can improve their smile using clear alignment trays instead of metal brackets and sharp wires.
Often the advantages of a straighter smile are not only cosmetic in nature. Teeth that are aligned properly means that your teeth are easier to keep clean, leading to a healthier mouth and better health and wellness. However, regardless of the cosmetic and health benefits, many patients would rather put up with misalignment than endure years of orthodontic treatment with metal brackets, sharp wires, and painful rubber bands.
Dr. Adnan Saleem helps his patients achieve a happier, healthier smile without traditional braces. Instead, many of his patients opt for Invisalign or SLX aligners with clear, plastic alignment trays. While the best benefit of Invisalign or Slx Aligners braces is the confidence patients have while wearing clear aligners, there are also several other advantages. While traditional braces can be uncomfortable caused by rough and sharp metal brackets, invisible braces are smooth and comfortable. Also, aligner trays are removable so that patients can easily brush and floss their teeth, leading to a healthier mouth. The trays can also be removed while eating instead of needing to avoid certain foods.
Invisalign or Slx Aligner is a great choice for adult dental patients who have busy lives or professional careers. The treatment plan utilizes several alignment trays that are worn for two weeks before moving onto the next tray in the treatment series. Each tray gently moves the teeth in predetermined increments. Because of this, patients do not need to visit the dentist as frequently as they do with traditional orthodontics.
It is important to mention that invisible braces are not perfect for everyone. Occasionally patients would achieve faster results with traditional braces. Also, patients who have severe misalignment may not be a candidate for Invisalign.
