San Mateo Dental Care shares top 10 reasons you should give Invisalign a try
Lately, does it seem like everyone around you has beautiful, straight teeth? Dental technology has come a long way, making it easier than ever to have the smile of your dreams. If you have crooked teeth, or issues with your bite, you may be the perfect candidate for Invisalign. With Invisalign, you can have the smile you’ve always wanted without having to spend years in unsightly metal braces. Dr. Glen Belen and the team at San Mateo Dental Care want you have a beautiful smile. Let’s look at 10 reasons why you should try Invisalign.
The Invisalign Difference
When it comes to straightening teeth, braces are effective, but they aren’t the only player in the game. Braces use metal brackets attached to the front of teeth and connected to one another by wires. These wires gradually move teeth into proper alignment.
Invisalign uses a different method of teeth straightening. The Invisalign system consists of custom-made clear aligner trays, Like braces, the Invisalign aligners gradually reposition teeth, however instead of wires, they use transparent trays that are virtually invisible.
Here are the top 10 reasons to choose Invisalign from San Mateo Dental Care:
1. Invisalign is as effective as braces
Invisalign is effective at treating the same alignment issues as traditional braces. It can correct overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowding, and gaps.
2. Invisalign is discreet
Invisalign aligner trays are made from a transparent plastic. Unlike traditional braces which have unsightly brackets and wires, Invisalign trays are virtually undetectable once they are slipped over teeth. Many people will have no idea that you are undergoing treatment.
3. Invisalign improves your confidence
If you’ve found yourself embarrassed to smile because of crooked teeth, then you may be the perfect candidate for Invisalign. It’s common to be embarrassed by imperfections such as tooth gaps or overbites, but you don’t have to live like that any longer. When you invest in Invisalign, you are not only investing in a straighter smile, but also in a new, more confident you.

4. Invisalign trays are removable
Why is this important? Well for starters, it means you can say goodbye to the list of “off-limit” foods. You can remove your clear, plastic Invisalign aligners during mealtime so you can enjoy all your favorite foods. Another benefit of removing the trays is being able to maintain good oral hygiene. It’s common for patients with braces to end up with some tooth decay when food particles become trapped under or around the brackets. With Invisalign you can still brush and floss as effectively as before treatment.
5. Invisalign requires fewer appointments
With traditional braces, patients need to come into the office frequently to have wires tightened and brackets changed. With Invisalign, the quick progress visits are more spread out to save you valuable time.
6. Invisalign has a fast treatment time
On average, Invisalign treatment can be completed in 18 months, whereas traditional braces typically require 2 or more years.
7. Invisalign is cost-effective
We understand that cost is an important fact to consider before undergoing dental treatment. Invisalign is similar to the cost of braces. At San Mateo Dental care, we work with patients to find solutions within your budget. We accept CareCredit which is a flexible low or no interest credit card that allows you to make monthly payments.
8. Invisalign improves your oral health
When teeth are crooked, food particles can become trapped in hard to reach places, increasing the risk of plaque buildup and decay. Once your teeth are straightened with Invisalign, they will be easier to keep clean and free of bacteria.
9. Invisalign keeps the inside of the mouth safe
Metal brackets and wires can irritate the cheeks and soft tissue in the mouth. Invisalign aligners are made from a clear, comfortable plastic, which protects the inside of the mouth.
10.Invisalign is appropriate for teens and adults
The discreet treatment fixes alignment issues without burdening the appearance of the smile, making it an ideal solution for both teens and adults.
