3 Benefits of Straightening Your Teeth with Invisalign

Invisalign is a modern cosmetic dental treatment that provides patients with a more comfortable alternative compared to having their teeth straightened with traditional metal or ceramic braces. Ellicott City, MD dentist Dr. Chetna K. Desai of Desai Dental Care offers this popular service to his patients ranging from teens to middle-aged adults. Here are three benefits of straightening your teeth with Invisalign, which is also called “invisible braces” or “invisible aligners.”

A Straighter Smile in a Flash

Well maybe you won’t have a straighter smile in a flash, but Invisalign does significantly reduce the time it takes to straighten your teeth. Traditional metal braces can take up to three years -- invisible braces can do the job in as little as six months depending on the severity of the problem. This is a major selling point for adults who can’t afford to spend many years wearing unsightly braces.

No One Will Know...

Invisalign braces are clear trays that fit snugly over your teeth as opposed to getting metal or ceramic braces that are bonded to the front or back of each individual tooth. You simply pick up a new clear tray from Ellicott City, MD dentist Dr. Desai about every month to continue straightening your teeth. Many people go through each day, talking and smiling around others without anyone realizing that they're going through a cosmetic dental treatment.

Invisalign.You Have Options

One of the greatest benefits of getting invisible braces is that you have options -- you can take them out whenever you want. You can take them out when you're about to eat or drink, when you're about to have a serious up-close and personal conversation with someone or when you're about to brush and floss.
There are a number of very convincing benefits to choosing Invisalign to straighten your teeth instead of metal braces. Many patients say that it is a much more convenient solution that gives very efficient results. Contact Ellicott City, MD dentist Dr. Chetna K. Desai, DDS by calling the office directly at (410)-480-9111 to schedule an initial consultation.
