At Arizona Smile Designers, we believe everyone deserves a healthy smile, and our mission is to help our patients achieve one. We offer a variety of dental treatments to help create that smile, ranging from cosmetic dental treatment to dental implants. But a healthy smile is about more than just healthy teeth: the alignment of your teeth matters as well. And while most people seek out treatment with traditional metal braces, there’s another option that’s actually more desirable for many patients: Invisalign.
Both braces and Invisalign can successfully shift the alignment of your teeth and create a better smile, so you can’t go wrong no matter which treatment you choose. But for most patients – and especially for adult patients – Invisalign is a far better choice for their lifestyle.
Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten the teeth. Invisalign aligners are made from a transparent plastic material and fit directly over the dental arch, laying flat against the teeth – and in effect, this makes them virtually impossible to see when worn. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign means you won’t have to worry about having braces at important professional events or social gatherings, and you also won’t have braces for photographs.
In addition to being virtually invisible, Invisalign aligners are completely removable: you take out the aligners in order to eat, drink, brush, and floss. This means that Invisalign doesn’t come with the same dietary restrictions as are necessary with braces, and maintaining strong oral hygiene is as easy as ever, which is critical for adult orthodontic treatment. Most patients find Invisalign much less disruptive to their day-to-day lifestyle.
Invisalign is an effective, convenient option to straighten your teeth without the unsightly metalwork of braces, and if you’re interested in improving your smile through Invisalign, we’d love to help. Contact us today to learn more about our Invisalign treatments and to schedule your consultation with our Cottonwood dentists. We can’t wait to hear from you, and we look forward to helping you achieve your dream smile!
