alternative to braces

Invisalign trays are an alternative to traditional metal braces that alleviate a lot of the concerns that professionals have before straightening their teeth. For many adults, the task of straightening their teeth is daunting. Because metal braces are the traditional option, many people can confuse them with being the only option. 

Emotional Obstacles

Getting braces as an adult can lead to patients feeling self-conscious or embarrassed. No one wants to feel those things about their smile. Braces are generally considered an adolescent milestone, which could be an obstacle for adults looking for straighter teeth. These emotional obstacles can keep people from moving forward with teeth straightening procedures.

What Conditions Can Invisalign Resolve?

Compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign is often a better option for dental patients. Some of the dental issues Invisalign addresses include:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth

Patients interested in Invisalign should have healthy teeth and gums to be good candidates. While tooth decay and gum disease won’t prohibit you from using Invisalign, Dr. Marzban will need to address these issues first before setting you up with Invisalign trays.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign offers patients seeking a better smile several benefits as opposed to traditional metal braces.

  • Improved comfort: Invisalign’s smooth plastic aligners are custom-fit to patients’ teeth to prevent the mouth and gum irritations synonymous with traditional metal braces.
  • Customizable treatment: Patients receive a unique set of Invisalign aligners customized to address their specific bite alignment issues.
  • Fewer dentist visits: Patients benefit from fewer dental visits with Invisalign treatments. Because there are no brackets that require tightening, people using Invisalign can enjoy more time away from the dental office.
