In the United States, we are able to reap the benefits from generations of people wanting to look the best that they possibly can.  This has gone on for a long time, and it isn’t likely to go away any time soon.  We’ve been pioneering techniques in plastic surgery, cosmetic dentistry, and the kind of thing that your local orthodontist can offer you to fix your crooked teeth for almost a century, and there is no reason to believe that this is going to slow down at any point anywhere in the future. We have pioneered things like Botox, braces, and even things like Invisalign and abdominal implants (yes, it’s a real thing.  Lose weight, don’t spend any time doing sit ups, just get a gel insert over your abs.  I’m not joking, it’s the kind of thing that you see in certain parts of the world, and it is hilarious to see the surgery done.  Truly, hilarious.

Now, what I’d like to talk to you about today is fixing the way that your smile looks, and, more specifically, bringing your teeth into better alignment so that you can have a smile that you can be proud to flash to the world. Now, for a long time, the method that people turned to in order to fix their smile was braces, but we have something better today, something that is going to be much more capable of fixing your teeth and their alignment while also allowing you to continue to live your life without a lot of hassle.

Getting Invisalign, from your local professional Invisalign orthodontist, of course, is going to be great for you and fro fixing your teeth.  Here are just a few ways that it will be a major improvement over the other technologies that you can use to do the same today. Here are just a few ways that Invisalign can make the whole thing a lot easier for you.

1.  Much more discreet

the benefit of cosmetic bracesAlright, the first big thing that I need to draw your attention to is how discreet Invisalign, and how much of an improvement it is over the things that came before it.

When braces first came into wide use, it got a lot of use because it was such a big step up in technology for realigning the teeth.  The best thing about braces was that not only did they work as well as the orthodontic headgear that came before, but that they were much more discreet than the techniques that came before.

Well, now Invisalign is the big step up in technology for realigning the teeth.  Where braces were a step up because they didn’t require headgear, Invisalign aligners are a big step up because they cut out the metal and made it so that you can realign your teeth and you will be able to do so without anyone being any the wise that you have that stuff in your mouth.

2.  A lot more comfortable

If you’ve ever had something put in your mouth, you know it isn’t comfortable, and having metal brackets put in the mouth certainly isn’t comfortable.  Then there’s the fact that, because they protrude from the teeth, they’re going to be rubbing against the inside of the mouth, which can lead to all sorts of sores and whatnot.  Invisalign, on the other hand, is a set of  custom-made invisible braces, and when you put them in the mouth, you’re going to have none of those issues.

3.  A lot easier to live with

When you have braces, you’re going to have to work around them while they’re in your mouth.  You have to work around them when you eat and when you brush and floss your teeth, for an easy example.  Well, think about that when it comes to Invisalign.  You can just pop out the aligners at any time, so you can eat, and so you can brush the teeth.  Much easier to live with, wouldn’t you agree?

4.  Cost effective

As with all new technologies, Invisalign aligners are going to cost more money.  In the case of these aligners, it’s only going to be a few hundred dollars more than you would have to pay in order to realign your teeth with standard metal braces, and for that money, you get a whole lot of advantages over the standard metal braces.

So, if you’re looking to fix up your crooked teeth, consider getting someone who can offer you Invisalign to help you with your teeth.  You’re going to be glad that you did.
