Did you know you can have an incredibly straight smile without the hassle and look of metal braces? Parkcrest Dental Group now offers Invisalign, an option that offers clear braces to those wanting an alternative option to metal brackets. This clear option offers comfort while allowing people to look their best while straightening their teeth.
Yes, traditional metal braces have been around longer, but Invisalign has a tremendous track record. For over 20 years, Invisalign has allowed people to align and straighten their teeth without the hassle of wires and brackets. Parkcrest explains how Invisalign is able to straighten your teeth without using wires and why they could be the perfect option for you.
Traditional braces utilize the tension of a wire and bracket system to move your teeth to where they need to be, Invisalign on the other hand, uses a series of trays engineered for your teeth to move them into the right position. Parkcrest Dental Group provides you with a new tray every two weeks, and each tray will shift the focus on moving your teeth in different ways.
When you receive Invisalign from Parkcrest Dental Group, you benefit from less intrusive hardware, less painful alignment, and quicker turnaround. The average treatment time tends to last around 12 months instead of the 24 months of braces. The quicker turnaround time and decreased visibility make Invisalign an excellent choice for teens with a busy schedule
Braces present an obstacle for your teen to brush and floss around. When you choose Invisalign from Parkcrest Dental Group for your teenager, you give them the opportunity to not only eat anything they want but also brush and floss their teeth effectively. The can take off their trays for a few minutes to perform their oral hygiene routine, and this helps them clean every surface of their teeth.
Though some may consider it a drawback to Invisalign, the self-discipline needed to keep up with them is a great learning tool for all teenagers. They must keep their aligners in for 22 hours a day. Your child might surprise you. Many teens find it easy enough to keep their aligners in all day aside from the time it takes them to eat and brush their teeth.
If you decide Invisalign for your teen, then you will want an experienced, friendly, and local orthodontist to take care of them. Luckily Parkcrest Dental Group has just the orthodontist in Springfield, MO. Contact us today to get your teen started on their journey toward a new beautiful smile.
