In our last article, we explained why your teeth should be straight, and why ignoring crooked teeth can be a bad idea for your overall oral health. As an experienced orthodontist in Ft. Worth, Dr. Ciro Cabal offers a variety of orthodontic treatments to help you find the perfect balance in your smile. If confidence is as important a factor as function in straightening your crooked teeth, then you may benefit from Invisalign clear braces—the adult alternative to conventional orthodontic treatment.
Increased Confidence from the Start
If your main goal for straightening your teeth is to improve your smile’s confidence and appeal, then you may not feel too keenly about wearing conspicuous metal brackets and wires for a couple of years, even though the end result would be near-perfection. With Invisalign clear braces, which Dr. Cabal may recommend for most patients, you can immediately feel more confident knowing that you’re actively correcting your crooked teeth without announcing your treatment to the world. Instead of brackets and wires, clear braces are actually a series of clear acrylic aligners, each of which can be removed and replaced with the next in the series.
The Functional Benefits of Removable Aligners
If you’ve ever worn conventional braces, with brackets bonded to your teeth and connected with arch wire, then you can probably imagine the benefits of removable braces without much prompting. Unlike traditional orthodontic appliances, clear braces can be removed to allow for normal tooth-brushing and flossing as well as reasonably-unchanged dietary habits. Aside from being virtually undetectable, your clear acrylic aligners will also prove more comfortable throughout the duration of your treatment.
