So, you are interested in turning to our Bloomington, IN, family dentist Dr. Lisa Baker to get Invisalign? Of course, you want to make sure that Invisalign is the right treatment for you. We want all of our patients to feel confident about the treatment they receive from our dental team. It’s true that this nearly invisible aligner treatment makes it even easier for teens and adults to get a straighter smile without others noticing their braces. Here are just some of the benefits of getting Invisalign,
Most people don’t realize that a crooked or misaligned smile increases their risk for cavities and gum disease. This is because it’s easier for plaque and food to get trapped in areas that are harder to clean through regular brushing and flossing; however, by turning to Invisalign to get a straighter smile you also reduce your risk for these common dental issues and improve your oral health.
Overbites, underbites and other bite problems are fairly common, but can make it difficult to chew properly or may even result in speech problems. The good news is that Invisalign can handle most bad bites (also known as malocclusions). This reduces your risk for excessive wear and tear on teeth, jaw pain and other dental dysfunctions.
One of the main reasons both older teens and adults turn to our Bloomington, IN, dentist for Invisalign is that they are looking for a way to get the smile they’ve always wanted without people noticing their braces. Since aligners are made from completely transparent, flexible thermoplastic, they are nearly invisible when worn. Plus, they won’t be visible in photos, so you won’t have to feel self-conscious about taking a selfie!
Invisalign aligners are removable, and you absolutely should remove them prior to eating or drinking (except water, of course). The good news is that you don’t have to change your diet and say “no” to some of the foods you love because of your braces. Invisalign fits perfectly into your daily routine without having to make any serious changes. For adults and teens who always seem “on the go”, having a treatment that fits into their routine is game changing.
It’s never too late to get a straighter smile. If you are interested in getting Invisalign here in Bloomington, IN, then call our office today at (812) 269-8230 to schedule a consultation or to learn more about the other dental services we offer.
