Reasons Why Invisalign Might Be Right for You

The thought of metal brackets and a mouth full of wires is enough to turn away many people from traditional braces. But you don’t have to say goodbye to your dreams of straight teeth. 

Invisalign® can help you achieve your orthodontic goals without the hassle of metal brackets — and it’s available here at Palmieri Dentistry in Mooresville, North Carolina.

If you’re interested in addressing orthodontic issues like crowding or gaps, Dr. Roberto Palmieri, accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, encourages you to schedule an Invisalign consultation with us.

In the meantime, Dr. Palmieri highlights five key reasons why this clear aligner system might be right for you.

1. Treatment is discreet and comfortable

Whether you’re thinking about Invisalign for your teen or for yourself, discreet treatment is often on the wish list for individuals seeking orthodontic care. 

Your clear aligner trays are made from a soft, clear, and flexible material called SmartTrack®. This BPA-free material means your treatments are both comfortable and discreet — a win-win!

2. Invisalign can treat a variety of issues

Invisalign can straighten crooked teeth, but that’s just one of its many advantages. Invisalign can also correct:

If you have a severe bite problem, Invisalign might not be suitable for you. Dr. Palmieri, however, can address your specific needs and goals during your consultation.

3. Treatments are relatively quick

Research shows that Invisalign treatments are quicker than the average treatment with metal braces. Specifically, during the 2017 study, researchers noted that Invisalign treatments were an average of 5.7 months shorter than treatments with fixed metal braces.

4. Treatments are predictable 

In addition to shorter treatment times, your treatment is also predictable thanks to ClinCheck® software. This allows Dr. Palmieri to lay out your entire treatment plan, monitor each tooth movement, and track your progress from your first clear aligner to your last.

5. Invisalign is convenient

While there are many reasons to pursue Invisalign, one of the most alluring aspects of treatment is that your trays aren’t permanently secured to your teeth. 

Traditional metal brackets are cemented in place, and you must brush and floss around them. This creates challenges eating, and you may need to replace special rubber bands after you eat. Invisalign trays are removable. This means:

In other words, good hygiene is much more attainable with removable trays. Note that you need to wear your trays for 20-22 hours each day for the best results, but this still leaves you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, brush your teeth, and then re-insert your trays.
