Invisalign offers unique benefits to teens and adults living in Huntsville, AL.

Has our Huntsville, AL, dentist, Dr. Brad Beasley recently talked to you or your teen about braces? Most of us aren’t born with perfectly straight teeth. Some develop gaps between their front teeth while others may come in slightly crooked. Of course, it’s never too late to get a straighter smile and with nearly invisible options like Invisalign, we are getting more of our teen and adult patients on board.

When you think about braces you probably think about those traditional metal braces; however, Invisalign and traditional braces are quite different. While they both can offer amazing results, here are the differences:

Invisalign is Nearly Invisible

Instead of applying metal brackets and wires to your teeth our Huntsville dentist will provide you with clear Invisalign aligners. These aligners are uniquely shaped to your teeth, so they provide a comfortable, perfect fit. Each aligner is made from a thin transparent thermoplastic, which is flexible and hugs your teeth while you wear them, making them nearly invisible. Just make sure to keep your aligners clean to prevent stains from forming!

You Can Eat What You Want

If you would rather not have to avoid certain foods or to follow the traditional braces diet, then Invisalign will allow you to eat just as you had been prior to braces. Since aligners are removable, you will definitely want to take them out prior to eating. While you don’t have to remove aligners if you are drinking water, you will want to remove them if you are drinking anything else such as coffee, tea, or juice, which could stain them.

Remove Invisalign When Necessary

The goal is to wear your aligners as much as possible and to only remove them when absolutely necessary; however, being able to remove them when you really need to can provide our teen and adult patients with peace of mind. While Invisalign won’t be visible in pictures, you may choose to pop them out before taking your senior photos or before your wedding pictures. Invisalign fits into your lifestyle, not the other way around.

With an office in Athens, AL, Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry is proud to provide comprehensive family dentistry to the Huntsville, AL, area. If you or your teen would like to learn more about Invisalign and how it could improve your smile, call us at (888) 860-5114.
