Do you dream of owning a set of perfectly straight teeth, but not so into the whole braces look? Trust me, I know the feeling. We can’t all pull off adult braces à la Gwen Stefani back in the No Doubt glory days. If you had braces as a child or teenager, you know first-hand how much they can hurt. Playing the trumpet while having braces was not a walk in the park. I’m almost positive there are permanent indents on the inside of my lips from the pressure pressed upon them by the metal mouthpiece.
If you have all of your permanent adult teeth and are plagued with tooth misalignment, crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, an overbite, underbite, or other jaw problems, braces are not the be-all-end-all of solutions. Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Sugar Fix Dental Loft plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You will achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
Although treatment time varies by patient, on average a patient requires one full year of treatment — equivalent to 24 sets of Invisalign aligners. During the treatment process, you’ll have to wear the aligners all day; removing them only to eat or drink hot beverages. Once treatment is finished, you’ll only have to wear the final set at night while sleeping! My specific case involved three to four months of wearing the aligners 24/7. Now I pop them in before hitting the sack and pop ‘em out when I wake up and brush my teeth. Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces that will set your smile straight for the rest of your life.
