Straight teeth are important. In fact, they are more important than you may realize. If you have been living with crooked teeth, you probably don’t know what you are missing. You are accustomed to turning or ducking your head, covering your mouth when you smile, or simply not smiling at all. You know brushing and flossing isn’t as easy as it sounds. You aren’t surprised by the suspicious or disdainful looks you get when you speak to strangers, and you’ve learned not to open your mouth when you look in the mirror. This is your life before Invisalign, and it doesn’t have to be this way.
We judge each other based largely on appearance. This might not be fair, but it’s true. According to psychologists, we only take about 30 seconds to form that all-important first impression. Unless you are an auctioneer, that isn’t enough time to say much, so people are forming options based on your looks and body language. Studies have shown that people with nice, straight teeth are judged as friendlier, more attractive, and more successful. Of course, the most important benefit of an attractive smile is the feeling of pride that you get when you see it in the mirror.
Invisalign is a unique orthodontic system that allows you to avoid the embarrassment and inconvenience of metal braces while straightening your teeth. It works with clear, comfortable plastic aligners that are custom-made to slip over your teeth, applying gentle pressure in just the right places. They are discreet, and they can be removed during meals and oral hygiene.
A gorgeous smile is not the only benefit of Invisalign treatment. Because straight teeth are much easier to clean, you are less likely to leave plaque and tartar in your mouth. That means you are less likely to get cavities, gum disease, bad breath, and all of the other gifts that lurking bacteria bestow upon their host.
