Invisalign Clear BracesWith Invisalign, wearing braces doesn’t have to change your lifestyle.

You hate that your smile is a little crooked, crowded or misaligned, and you are ready to do something about it. It’s never too late to get a straight smile and our Trenton, MI, family dentist Dr. Nicholas Booker is here to tell you why so many older teens and adults are turning to Invisalign, the almost invisible orthodontic system that could give you the smile you’ve always wished for.

You know those trays you get with an at-home whitening system? Now imagine that those trays are actually custom-made to fit over your teeth, are completely clear and can actually improve the alignment of your smile. Now you have Invisalign. Instead of using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, Invisalign has customized aligners tailored to give you the straighter results you are looking for.

Along with being completely clear, Invisalign offers its wearers other benefits, such as:

Superior Comfort

Sometimes the metal from traditional braces can irritate gum tissue and cause sore spots, particularly when you first get them. This won’t be the case with Invisalign. Sure it might take some time to get used to these aligners but they are made from the very latest technology to provide removable aligners with smooth edges and a custom fit that make them more comfortable and less likely to cause irritation.

Capable of Handling Many Alignment Issues

No matter whether you need to move teeth slightly or more extensively, Invisalign is capable of doing this thanks to your pre-mapped treatment plan. Our Trenton, MI, dentist will plan out your treatment with the use of digital impressions taken of your mouth and advanced computer software. The measurements and information we provide will assist a dental lab in creating a series of aligners that offer perfectly timed and gradual teeth movements. Invisalign can be great for treating crowding, gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites and open bites.

Remove When Necessary

While it’s important that you wear your aligners as much as possible (about 22 hours out of the day) what makes this treatment so convenient for adults and teens is that it fits into their life rather than the other way around. Unlike traditional braces, you won’t have to change what you eat to accommodate your braces. Just simply remove your aligners and you can enjoy whatever foods you wish. The same rules apply for brushing and flossing. No need to worry about flossing around metal wires. Remove your aligners and your oral care routine is still the same.

Are you interested in finding out if you or your teenager is an ideal candidate for Invisalign? If you said “yes” then it’s the perfect time to call Booker Family Dentistry in Trenton, MI, to schedule a consultation with us. Getting a straight smile has never been easier.
