This is the perfect time of year to embark upon a transformative journey ending in a straighter, healthier smile. That said, our Royal Oak, Michigan dental office knows that traditional braces aren’t for everyone. That’s why, at North Oaks Dental, we are big on clear aligners like Invisalign. In fact, today’s post will explore this remarkable system in greater detail. If you still have questions about our Invisalign treatment or would like to have your own consultation, give us a call right away at 248-712-1522 to book that appointment. With two board-certified orthodontists, you can bet that we’ll straighten out the situation in your mouth, one way or another.

The Clear Advantages Of Invisalign

Your consultation will give us plenty of time to assess your situation and the best way forward. However, we can tell you that with Invisalign, you won’t have to deal with metal brackets or wires in your mouth. Instead, we will use a series of clear orthodontic aligners to move your teeth into a better position. That is usually enough to sway most potential patients! Still, here are some of the other perks of Invisalign: 

  • You can easily remove the aligners for eating, cleaning, or other reasons. That  means you can eat whatever you want and still keep your teeth clean. No special tools will be required. With regular braces, you’d be attached to your hardware for the duration of treatment without any breaks.
  • The aligners are virtually invisible. If you’re an adult or working professional, you probably don’t want anyone to know that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment until they see the end results. So, this is the perfect way to hide the process until you can smile with complete confidence.
  • Treatment with clear aligners only takes 12 to 18 months. By contrast, traditional braces will take an average of two to three years. Most adults don’t want to spend that long wearing braces. You shouldn’t have to either. Obviously, a lot depends on your current situation. 
  • The gear is more comfortable than traditional braces. Any orthodontic treatment uses pressure to move teeth into a better location, so you may experience a little discomfort. But because Invisalign uses smooth plastic aligners, you’ll never have to worry about brackets or wires scraping or poking soft tissue in the mouth. No bleeding or sores will be part of the deal.

Don’t Put Off Your Straight New Smile!
