An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, or so the saying goes. The same is true with dental care and hygiene. To make sure that you have the ideal smile for the rest of your life, it is recommended to get straight and perfectly-aligned teeth as soon as you can. Invisalign is a clear alternative to traditional metal braces used for Preventive Dental Treatments.
Many children like pre-teens and teenagers are prescribed braces so that they do not end up with an overbite, underbite, gapped teeth, open-bite or crowded teeth when they grow up. However, these kids are often teased and even bullied in school for having a mouth full of metal. Worse, they may even have to wear an ugly neck brace like in movies or TV. Now they no longer have to be worried about getting embarrassed because Invisalign clear braces are virtually invisible. Even better, they can be easily popped off during meals, brushing and flossing.
The cost of getting a preventive Invisalign treatment as early as possible will be much less than spending a fortune on other more expensive corrective dental treatments and procedures to get perfectly straight teeth in the future. It’s not too late for adults to get preventive care, either. Depending on the degree of misalignment of the teeth and other factors, adults can still be candidates for Invisalign.
Best of all, Invisalign is a short term solution for long term success. Often, you can achieve the smile of your dreams in less than a year. This is much less than the time it takes for regular metal braces to attain their desired results.
