If you think straighter teeth can only be achieved by wearing metal braces, you will be happy to know that is not the case anymore. Thankfully, with advancements in orthodontics, you can now see the same results with Invisalign braces. At Sierra Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, our team of experts can work with you to develop a treatment plan that will have you seeing positive results quicker than with traditional braces. If you’re ready to learn more about this unique orthodontic treatment, we’ve compiled a list of the many benefits of Invisalign in Pasadena for you to consider.

Made of clear plastic, your aligners provide a discreet method of treatment. No one will ever have to know you’re being treated unless you want them to! When your aligners are created, they are customized to fit your teeth as they shift throughout treatment. This makes them less noticeable. In addition, you don’t have to worry about irritating metal brackets or wires. Your gums, cheeks, and tongue will remain sore-free with these smooth aligners.

Traditional braces can often require patients to continue treatment for years. As a teenager, this wasn’t such a big deal; however, as an adult, the idea of having braces for longer than absolutely necessary is a dreadful thought. Luckily, with Invisalign, you’ll achieve your desired results much quicker. Although each patient’s dental needs are different, and each person will need to wear them longer than others, Invisalign will give you the results you want in no more than 18 months.

If you know someone who had traditional braces, you are probably aware of how uncomfortable and painful they can be. While effective, the necessary visits to the orthodontist to have a wire tightened created much discomfort. When wearing Invisalign, there is a minimal amount of discomfort. This occurs when changing out your aligners for the next set in the series. Luckily, this dissipates quickly. Invisalign requires no extra visits to see your dentist in Pasadena because there are no wires to be tightened. All you need to do is come in as instructed for a quick and pain-free checkup. This will allow us to check on your progress.

One of the great aspects of Invisalign is that it is flexible and convenient for patients. Your aligners will not change the way you eat, sleep, speak, chew, or all-around live your life. Invisalign aligners are removable, so when you eat or drink, you’re required to remove your trays, enjoy your meal, and reinsert them once you’ve brushed your teeth or rinsed your mouth out.

Traditional braces make it difficult to eat certain foods, and cleaning between brackets and wires is difficult. But with Invisalign, you can enjoy all your favorite foods, and by using a toothbrush, some clear soap, and lukewarm water, you can easily clean your trays.
