Get a Straighter Smile, Fast and Easily, with Invisalign


Invisalign in Newington CTWe all know that projecting a professional image is very important in business. This can put someone in a sticky situation regarding orthodontia. It may seem like something of a trade off. Of course, the straighter smile you will get from orthodontia will be more professional…for the future. Some people reading this may have put off straightening their teeth, not wanting to sacrifice their professional appearance for a time in order to get straighter teeth. It’s also well known that traditional metal orthodontia has many other drawbacks that most people would rather avoid.

Here’s How Invisalign Can Save the Day

In the past, your only choice for straighter teeth was an inconvenient, lengthy, and often painful treatment with metal braces stuck to your teeth 24 hours a day. Some patients nowadays make the choice to use clear or ceramic tooth-colored braces. These offer nearly the same treatment as metal braces, though the cement used or ceramic brackets can be stained by darkly colored foods and beverages, making them less appealing. Fortunately, we have clear aligner technology from Invisalign!

Invisalign uses the same principle of maintaining constant, low force on the teeth to guide them into their desired positions, but it uses a much different method of delivering that force than traditional orthodontia. Traditional orthodontia uses wires and brackets attached to the teeth, but Invisalign aligners fit over the teeth and gums and exert pressure without being attached. Instead of adjustments at your orthodontist’s office, you will simply be using a new aligner each time you are ready to move forward in your treatment.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

  • Invisalign clear aligners are practically invisible, while traditional braces can look like a mouth full of metal.

  • Your diet can remain unchanged, as you can remove Invisalign to eat, braces mean restrictions on the foods you can eat because the wires can be broken by certain foods, or brackets can come loose.

  • Less risk of tooth decay with Invisalign, since you can brush and floss normally, instead of having to spend the extra time and care required by traditional orthodontia. Keeping your aligner clean is also simple to do.
