Find out the many benefits of getting Invisalign in Lake Ridge and Woodbridge, VA.invisalign

When it comes to choosing the orthodontic treatment that’s right for you, our Lake Ridge and Woodbridge, VA, dentist, Dr. Marv Thomas, knows that there are so many different options that it can feel daunting. If you are an adult who has always wanted that perfect smile but is suffering from gaps between teeth or a crooked, uneven smile, it’s time you found out more about what Invisalign could do to help.

Cosmetic Appeal

Wearing metal braces, as you might imagine, can be rather embarrassing, particularly if you are in school or out in the working world. You don’t want people around you to suddenly make a big deal about you getting braces. Well, now you don’t have to. You can get the smile you want without others noticing. Instead of metal, Invisalign uses a set of customized clear aligners. They look similar to mouthguards except the thin, precise design of the aligners make them fit snugly over the teeth so people won’t notice.

Comfortable to Wear

Wearing these clear aligners instead can certainly take the discomfort out of having braces. Since each aligner is carefully crafted just for you, you won’t have to worry about uncomfortable, painful treatment.

No Potential Damage

While your aligners aren’t impervious to stains or other damage, it always puts a parent’s mind at ease to find out that aligners are much safer than wearing wires, which—if damaged—could puncture your gums or tongue. Especially if your adolescent is an athlete who participates in contact sports, choosing Invisalign over traditional braces will negate the chances of damaged braces or scratched mouths.

Easy on Your Lifestyle

There is no doubt about it—braces can certainly cramp your style. If the idea of spending a lot of time meticulously flossing and brushing between precarious wires and brackets has you anxious, then it might be time to talk to your Lake Ridge and Woodbridge general dentists about Invisalign. Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can take them out right before eating or before caring for your smile. This way, you don’t have to change your oral routine or your diet.

Are you ready to turn to Invisalign to get your dream smile? If so, The Dental Spa in Lake Ridge and Woodbridge, VA, is ready to help. Call us today to schedule your no-risk consultation.
