It’s understandable if you’re not comfortable wearing clunky, unsightly metal braces—especially as an adult who has a lot of responsibility to take care of in the course of a week. Explore an alternative with Dr. Cesar Acosta, a dentist practicing in Turlock, CA. He can straighten your smile discreetly with Invisalign, a popular and effective orthodontic treatment that doesn’t require metal brackets.
Ways to Straighten Your Smile
Most people assume that their misaligned teeth will require wearing metallic braces for an extended period of time. This is usually the case for younger patients who have more advanced alignment problems. Other orthodontic options include ceramic and lingual braces, but both are still very uncomfortable to wear. Many patients, especially adults and older teenagers, prefer a more discreet option if it’s possible for their smiles.
The Most Discreet Way
Invisalign is the treatment of choice if you are intent on straightening your smile discreetly. You will wear clear plastic trays throughout the treatment period instead of metal or ceramic braces. Your Turlock dentist will create custom trays that are made just for your teeth. Most people can’t even tell you’re wearing the tray unless they get up-close-and-personal with you. If you’re going to sit down with a friend for a meal, just take the tray off for a short while. For the best results and to stay on schedule, you must wear the trays at least 20-22 hours each day.
Additional Invisalign Benefits
There are other benefits of choosing Invisalign that you should consider. For one, you won’t have to sit through extended appointments with your dentist to have your braces tightened or adjusted. You’ll simply have a quick check-up and receive your next tray. You won’t have to bear the pain associated with tightening wire braces. Also, most Invisalign treatments only take about a year compared to two or three years for regular braces.
