Straighten Your Smile Discreetly
For many people, the image of a mouth full of metal wires and brackets is the first thing to come to mind when discussing straighter teeth. Although traditional metallic and ceramic braces are the most common orthodontic treatment option for children, older teenagers and adults can be understandably reluctant to get braces after a certain age. But braces are not the only option available. Dr. Ashley Lloyd, a dentist in Raleigh, NC, offers Invisalign clear aligner trays for patients looking for a more discreet solution to orthodontic problems like crowding or an overbite.
Get Straighter Teeth with Invisalign in Raleigh, NC
In addition to being discreet and comfortable to wear, the Invisalign system offers a number of additional benefits. Because the trays are removable, they allow you to maintain your regular oral hygiene routine and brush and floss every day as you normally would to help keep your gums and teeth clear of tooth decay and gum disease. You can also continue to enjoy the foods you love without the dietary restrictions that sometimes go along with traditional braces.
And then there's the social aspect. For many adults, even significant bite or alignment problems are not enough to overcome the stigma associated with wearing braces. Invisalign makes it so that you don't have to choose between straighter teeth and your social and professional life. Invisalign consists of a series of plastic trays, each of which is worn for approximately two weeks. You can remove the tray for up to two hours a day to eat and brush and floss your teeth. Like braces, Invisalign gradually shifts your teeth into the desired alignment.
