Heart pounding, you begin to sweat as the anxiety sets in. Whether you’re doing a group presentation, or meeting with a new client, the reaction is always the same, and it’s because of your teeth. Why do your teeth cause such a strong reaction? Because they are crooked and overlap, and you feel embarrassed about them whenever you have to talk with a new client or group. Did you know that Invisalign in San Antonio can discreetly give you a new smile?
Dr. Christopher J. Holland, at New Image Dentistry located in San Antonio, can help you straighten your teeth, achieve the smile that you desire, and the best part is that no one will ever know you’re having orthodontic treatment done. This is achieved through Invisalign, and it may just be the solution that changes your life!
What is Invisalign?
As opposed to using traditional metal brackets to straighten your teeth, Invisalign does it with clear plastic aligners. Dr. Holland will take impressions and photos of your teeth that he will use to design your new smile. Based on his plan, Invisalign will create a series of plastic aligners that move your teeth gradually by applying gentle pressure.
Your aligners will need to be worn 20–22 hours per day and changed every two weeks, and Dr. Holland monitors your treatment throughout the entire process. With Invisalign’s advanced technology, you’ll be able to see what your new smile will look like before you even begin treatment. Most Invisalign cases can be completed in twelve to eighteen months, and the result is a smile that you will be proud of. You will never feel anxious about your pearly whites again!
Invisalign vs Braces
There are a number of benefits that Invisalign provides that traditional braces cannot. First, because your aligners are removable you can take them out for meals, oral care and the occasional big event. This means that you won’t miss a beat with your home care routine and you won’t have to deal with the dietary restrictions of traditional braces.
Your aligners take a bit of getting used to, but after your learning curve you’ll find that you can talk, smile and go about your daily routine without anyone noticing your aligners. This is by far the biggest benefit of Invisalign!
Invisalign works well for busy adults or teens who don’t want to worry about the inconvenience of traditional braces. The best way to find out if you’re a candidate for San Antonio Invisalign is to meet with Dr. Holland for an initial consultation. He will evaluate your teeth and bite and discuss your goals with you. He can review the entire process so you can decide if Invisalign is the right option for your lifestyle, needs and budget.
