Many patients think of cosmetic dentistry as nice-to-have rather than need-to-have. However, they forget that cosmetic dentistry options like orthodontics have practical sides, too. As an example, people with straighter teeth and corrected bites are less at risk of developing some common dental conditions including gum recession, periodontal disease, and tooth loss. In other words, if you have weighed the idea of improving your smile with InvisalignⓇ in Manhattan, NY, or Greenwich, CT, you have nothing to lose (and a lot to gain!) by setting up an exploratory consultation.
Adults Flock to Invisalign as a Smile Straightening Solution
When Invisalign became a mainstream orthodontic treatment more than 20 years ago, patients of all ages quickly realized that it offered several key advantages over traditional braces.
For instance, because Invisalign relies upon molded plastic trays to firmly yet comfortably move the teeth, the system requires no wires or metals. This makes Invisalign a metal-free solution. It also ensures that people straightening their smiles with Invisalign can enjoy a sense of discretion and privacy. Other people can rarely tell that a patient is wearing Invisalign, which makes it especially ideal for working professionals.
Another advantage of Invisalign is that the treatment time and cost is usually similar to other types of orthodontic systems. Therefore, patients who work with their periodontists to receive Invisalign do not have to give up their dreams of having a smile in the shortest, safest amount of time possible.
Is Invisalign a Winner for Every Patient in Need of Smile Enhancement?
Invisalign is convenient, no doubt about it. But is it right for every patient? Not necessarily. Some patients can achieve near-perfect smiles through other cosmetic dentistry solutions. Or, they may have unique dental concerns that should be addressed before embarking upon any type of orthodontic treatment.
The best way to determine if Invisalign is going to be ideal for your situation is to set up an initial appointment. In Manhattan, NY, and Greenwich, CT, Dr. Alexander Volchonok welcomes the opportunity to evaluate new and current patients for Invisalign and other cosmetic innovations.
