Straight Teeth Month featuring Invisalign

Perfect Smile Dentistry is excited to dub April as the month of straight teeth! Whether you’re an adult who has always dreamed of a shining, flawlessly aligned smile or a teen who is looking to straighten your teeth for the first time, look no further than Invisalign. Though the concept of Invisalign has been around for a little while now, there is nothing else on the market that rivals its effectiveness and discretion. If you’ve been on the fence about committing to Invisalign, now is the time to go for it! This month, we are offering a free Apple Watch with the purchase of Invisalign. What better time to indulge yourself in the gift of a perfect smile?

If you haven’t heard of Invisalign or just need a little more convincing, it is a revolutionary clear aligning system that clings to your teeth like an invisible glove that whips your teeth into shape. Each of the clear aligners shift your teeth little by little, pushing them from one side to the other and even rotating them when needed. The aligning system is innovatively designed to use precisely the correct amount of force to get your teeth exactly where they are meant to be. Following the treatment plan designed by one of our doctors, your aligners will be changed to the next stage weekly to allow your teeth to continue to progress at the correct rate and effectiveness. Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of uniquely engineered SmartTrack material to carefully push your teeth into place.

We could delve even deeper into the fascinating science behind Invisalign, but we thought we’d make it easier and break down our top reasons to give Invisalign a go, as if you needed any.

You Can’t See it…Really.

It may sound too good to be true, braces you can’t see. So many of us look back in horror to the days of staring in the mirror, trying in vain to perfect the perfect closed-lip smile. Sure, there were upsides to conventional braces. Fun rubber bands? Everyone loves a pop of color. However, instead of trying to conform to your braces, it’s time that your braces conform to you. Whether you’re at the office or at a dinner party, you can be straightening your teeth incognito. Not only are they clear, they are virtually seamless once fitted to your teeth. Your boss and your dinner date won’t even know they’re there.

It’s Painless

If the rubber bands didn’t drag you down memory lane, maybe the feeling of lying in the orthodontist’s chair flinching and screeching while your braces were being tightened will ring a bell. Those days are done thanks to Invisalign. The SmartTrack material is smartly engineered to provide comfort, a better fit, and you can remove it if you need a break. Of course, it’s important to keep your aligners on for the allotted time period (usually 22 hours) but you are allowed 2 hours to let your teeth breath, though you might completely forget you have them on. Which is a feeling traditional braces just don’t allow.

The Proof is in The Results

You’ve seen the before and after pictures. They don’t lie. The results that patients have seen with Invisalign have been astounding. However, the data is just as impressive. This clear alignment system provides is clinically proven to achieve 75% more predictable tooth movement. Invisalign is dedicated to continuing their streak of incredible results. In fact, with 20 years of clinical research and more than 700 patents, no other clear alignment system can boast this kind of data and the experience of over 4 million cases.

There Are Special Features For Teens

One of the key ingredients of effectiveness for your Invisalign clear aligners is remembering to actually wear them. As previously mentioned, you can take them out for up to 3 hours a day but for them to work they have to be diligently worn. Easy enough right? Absolutely, but we know that your teen might sometimes forget. Invisalign eliminated that problem. They added handy compliance indicators that fade from blue to clear to help track wear time. Removing the guesswork makes teens more likely to keep their aligners in and get the job done effectively.

It’s Faster

Due to those weekly aligner changes, the wait time to a perfect smile is reduced by up to 50%. Most patients are looking at under a year in their aligners, some even as little as a few months. They say it’s science and not magic, but we think it might be a little bit of both. However, depending on your situation, you may need a set of finishing liners to give you the best pearly whites possible.

If you’re scurrying to make your appointment or maybe just got your clear aligners, there are a few important things to remember to ensure you have the best experience possible with your Invisalign aligners. Make sure you brush both your teeth and your aligners regularly, preferably after each meal, to not only keep your mouth fresh but to prevent any damage to the system. Keep heavily staining food and liquid to a minimum, we’re not saying turn your back on your morning coffee, just make sure to take out your trays and brush. One of the more surprising tips, don’t clean the trays with toothpaste. It could make them appear murky or yellow. Instead, opt for a mild soap with cold water or better yet, one of the Invisalign cleaning kits. Most importantly, make sure they spend as much time as possible on your teeth and doing their job. If you keep these tips in mind, we know you will be thrilled with the results Invisalign aligners provide!
