Are you wondering if Invisalign is the right way for you to get a straighter smile?

You’ve probably heard about Invisalign. It’s an orthodontic alternative that allows teens and adults to get a straighter smile just by using a set of clear trays called aligners. So, is Invisalign all that it’s cracked up to be? It most certainly is for countless adults. Our Saginaw, MI, dentist Dr. Gregory Herzler wants patients to understand the benefits behind Invisalign so you can decide whether this is the right treatment for you.

No Dietary Changes Needed

Having to change around what you eat to accommodate your braces can be frustrating, and who wants to miss out on crisp pizza crust and corn on the cob? Luckily, with Invisalign, all you have to do is remove your aligners prior to eating. You don’t have to avoid any foods during your treatment (just don’t forget to brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in).

Smile Confidently (Even With Braces)

We know that making serious changes to anyone’s appearance can be stressful, especially for teens and adults. If you’ve been avoiding braces because you don’t want them in your senior photos or you hate the idea of wearing them into work meetings, Invisalign gives you an amazing alternative. These clear aligners are custom-made by our Saginaw, MI, general dentist for an orthodontic system that is truly discreet.

Easy to Care for

Another benefit of Invisalign is that you don’t have to spend minutes trying to brush and floss around your braces in order to keep your smile clean. You can easily remove your aligners beforehand. Your oral care routine doesn’t have to change, except that you will want to clean your teeth after meals or snacks before putting in your aligners. Your dentist can also show you how to keep your aligners clean and stain-free.

Fewer Dental Appointments

No one wants to feel like they are always running back and forth from the dentist’s office, especially during treatment. The good news is that patients who get Invisalign don’t have to come in nearly as often because we don’t need to adjust or tighten your braces as we do with traditional braces.
