So you want to get your teeth straightened so that you don’t have to be afraid of smiling in photos and when you greet people, huh? But you’re afraid of all the pain and the embarrassment of walking around as a grown man or woman with your mouth full of metal like some middle school student. Look, you don’t have to fear getting your teeth straightened out. Our team of San Antonio dentists have a better solution for you, and it’s called Invisalign.
Braces were invented decades ago and they have been almost universally disliked ever since. They are uncomfortable and they basically give people a license to poke fun at you. Not with Invisalign. There’s no wires or metal involved with this relatively new method for teeth straightening. Invisalign uses clear plastic trays that grow increasingly straighter in order to shape up your teeth. They don’t hurt, they are removable; and most people will never even be able to realize you’re wearing them.
That means no sharp objects in your mouth. All of the cuts, dangers, discomfort and pain associated with them are a thing of the past. Invisalign aligners are molded to fit perfectly into each patient’s mouth. These custom made molds are gentle on the gums and the inside of your cheeks.
When someone in San Antonio has our dentists provide them with the Invisalign treatment, they can also be confident that they’re getting the more hygienic option. It’s easy to pop out the liners so you can floss and brush the entire surface area of your teeth. One of the downsides of metal braces is that they are stuck on there for years, making cleaning a hassle and flossing nearly impossible.
Any insurance plan that covers traditional metal braces also covers Invisalign. It is an FDA approved orthodontic appliance. Call us and we’ll set up a consultation and sort out the insurance mumbo-jumbo for you if you decide to go forward with the treatment. If you do, you’ll soon find yourself smiling every chance you get.
