InvisalignCould clear braces be the right orthodontic treatment for your smile?

Once we reach a certain age we often think we are too old for braces, but think again! You might be surprised to hear that braces can be a great option for anyone from children to older adults. You are never too old to get a straighter smile. But many of our patients don’t want to feel self-conscious about sporting braces around the office or among students. You’re in luck! Your Stamford, CT dentist Dr. Tatiana Barton offers a way to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing.

Straightening Smiles Invisibly with Invisalign

Invisalign is a great option for patients who are looking for braces that transition almost seamlessly into their lifestyles. With traditional braces, patients may find it more challenging to brush and floss between brackets and wires, and certain foods are off limits. With Invisalign you can remove your clear aligners before eating or brushing, so your diet and oral care regime doesn’t have to change. From mild to more severe cases, Invisalign can treat many common problems:

  • Spaces between teeth
  • Overbites
  • Crookedness
  • Overcrowding
  • Underbites
  • Open bites
  • Crossbite

If you are dealing with any of these issues than your Stamford, CT dentist Dr. Barton may be able to help with Invisalign. Here are some other factors to consider before deciding whether invisible braces are right for you:

Age: Invisalign is only available for teens and adults and isn’t suitable for children. This option makes it convenient for patients to get the straighter smiles they want without colleagues or fellow students noticing.

Severity of your smile: While Invisalign can treat everything from minor to more serious issues, it won’t be the ideal treatment for all cases. Those who require more complex tooth movements to achieve the perfect smile might do better with traditional braces.

Finances: If you have dental insurance then chances are your Invisalign treatment would be covered under your plan; however, make sure to talk to your provider about how much will be taken care of when it comes to financing your Invisalign and how much you’ll be responsible for.

Cleanliness: Even though you can remove your aligners before eating and drinking, this doesn’t mean that they don’t require the same care that you would take with regular braces. Since these aligners are invisible it’s just as important that you rinse and brush them so they remain clear and stain-free.

Discipline: Just because Invisalign can be removed at any time doesn’t mean it should. Your aligners need to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours each day. Therefore, it’s important that you are committed to wearing your orthodontic aligners regularly to get results.

If you want to get a more ideal smile and think Invisalign is right for you then it’s time to schedule a consultation with your Stamford, CT dentist Dr. Barton to learn more. Let us help you get one step closer to the smile that you want. Let Invisalign help!
