Invisalign in Athens, TX
Are you longing for a straighter, more appealing smile but don’t want to have to wear braces for two or more years? Thanks to recent advances in orthodontics, it may not be necessary for you to wait that long. If you’ve got healthy teeth and gums and are committed to practicing good oral hygiene, you may be a good candidate for FastBraces. As the name implies, FastBraces provides patients with a straighter smile much more quickly than their traditional counterparts.
How FastBraces Work
Conventional braces involve a two-part process that works by first straightening the roots of the teeth and then straightening the upper portion. FastBraces do the whole job at once, which means that it takes roughly half the time. Both teens and adults can benefit from FastBrace technology. To make things even better, FastBraces are more affordable than traditional braces.
Unless your orthodontic issues are severe, the smile of your dreams may not be as far away as you had thought. At Athens Smiles, we may be able to provide you with a mouthful of straight, gleaming teeth in as little as 21 weeks — that’s slightly under five months. Please contact us today to find out more.
Benefits of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces
Invisalign offers a tremendous number of benefits over traditional braces. If you are trying to decide between Invisalign and standard braces, here’s what you should know:
- Invisalign is very unnoticeable. Even up close, it will be very hard for others to see that you are wearing Invisalign. On the other hand, people can usually spot traditional braces from far away. If you’re looking for a dental solution with a very low profile, Invisalign beats regular braces every time.
- Invisalign braces can be removed for special occasions. We all have certain occasions that call for a more formal or professional appearance. While traditional braces are permanent until they are removed by your dentist, Invisalign braces can be removed by the wearer quickly and easily. So whether you have an important business presentation, a prom or even a television appearance, you can appear without your Invisalign braces for short periods of time.
- Invisalign braces are painless. When you move to a new Invisalign size, there may be slight discomfort as your teeth move into the new position. But for the most part, the entire Invisalign process is pain-free. However, patients often experience high levels of discomfort with braces during various stages of installation, adjustments and removal. If pain and discomfort are a concern for you, strongly consider Invisalign over standard braces.
- Invisalign is more hygienic. It’s very hard to get every bit of morsel out from between teeth even without any braces. But when you have permanent braces on, it’s even harder. Plaque and tartar build-up have always been a concern for dentists and patients with traditional braces. But with Invisalign, dental hygiene is a simple matter of removing the appliance while brushing and flossing and then reinserting the Invisalign appliance. This makes it much less likely that dental hygiene problems will develop.
