A straight, beautiful smile is something every teen wants. It’s a known fact that people with beautiful teeth often find more opportunities in life and are viewed more favorably by society as someone who takes care of themselves. For those living in Carrollton, Texas, and considering Invisalign treatment, we’ve got fantastic news! At Hebron Smiles, Dr. Adnan Saleem is an experienced dentist on the Invisalign straightening system and the overall treatment of misaligned teeth.
While most of us associate braces with teenagers, research has shown that more adults treat dental issues such as a bad bite or overcrowding using conventional orthodontic treatment. The traditional approach is still preferred in some cases, such as adjusting how opposing teeth align. Traditional braces also straighten teeth over time using consistent pressure to give patients the desired appearance. Once a dentist has set the necessary wires and brackets in place, the patient will need to visit the office for scheduled maintenance for the dentist to adjust the braces as necessary as the teeth are gradually moved into position. Most patients finish their treatment within 24 months.
One of the most significant advantages Invisalign has over traditional braces is its appearance. With conventional braces, everyone can see the metal and wires correcting a person’s teeth. However, Invisalign is made with a special plastic compound that’s transparent and nearly invisible to the naked eye. A person could wear their Invisalign straighteners all day without anyone noticing. The Invisalign trays look much like trays used to whiten teeth. However, each tray is gradually adjusted to move teeth into the desired alignment.
Invisalign can solve issues in teens and adults, such as spacing problems, overcrowding, and bite issues. Plus, unlike traditional braces, they are easy to take out for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene care since they are not affixed to teeth. They make the straightening process more comfortable while reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
