The Truth About Invisalign
Ready to straighten those teeth? Trying to decide between braces and Invisalign?
With a qualified provider, either option will eventually lead to straighter teeth. But the beauty of Invisalign is that it offers all the benefits of traditional braces with hardly any of the drawbacks.
- Will your mouth feel like it’s full of metal?
- Will your mouth look like it’s full of metal?
- Will you have to keep the aligners in your mouth 24/7?
- Nope. They’re removable, with 22 hours of wear needed for good results.
- Will you have to change how you eat, brush, and floss?
- Absolutely not. You can eat what you like. Just remove the aligners first.
On top of all that, with Invisalign, your checkups are less frequent. At Reagin Orthodontics, we see aligner customers about every 12 weeks. Plus, our customers can opt for FaceTime appointments to minimize their overall office visits.
So when it comes to braces or aligners, it’s a no-brainer, right?
Pretty much, yes. But some of our clients come to us with concerns about Invisalign–they’ve been told this treatment doesn’t work as well as braces. And, with some practices, that might be the case. But at Reagin Orthodontics, Invisalign is a fantastic option.
Simply put, Invisalign’s success lies in the hands of the provider. A skilled orthodontist who has spent time understanding this treatment and putting it into practice will give you amazing results. Ninety percent of our patients (including teens) are candidates for Invisalign.
Dr. Reagin has spent extensive time working with the aligner system to achieve the same results offered by traditional braces. He gets it. And, remember, this isn’t something that’s learned in orthodontic school. Each provider has to take the time to learn Invisalign on their own, if they choose to offer it to patients.
Think of it this way: We might be able to go out and buy the same clubs Tiger Woods uses, but that doesn’t mean we’ll have the same skills as a golfer. Any orthodontist can get access to Invisalign, but that doesn’t mean they’ll put the time and effort into learning and using this treatment properly.
We can promise you that, if you choose Invisalign, you will receive outstanding care and treatment–and you’ll see the benefits in straighter teeth, a more confident smile, with much less hassle than braces.
