Straighten Your Teeth With Innovative Clear Braces
Are you happy with the way your teeth currently look? Do you think they are crooked and that they could be more straight? As an adult, it can be difficult to accept the fact that you need braces. Most adults can't stand the thought of having a mouth full of metal. Thankfully, there is a better option, and that's invisalign, which is a clear straightening retainer offered here at Sweet Water Dentistry. Dr. Phillip Greer is the dentist here at Sweet Water Dentistry in Fairhope, AL, and offers invisalign as the best option for you to straighten your teeth if you do not want to get metal braces. Dealing with bulky wires and brackets are a pain, but with invisalign, that is no longer an issue. The best thing about invisalign is that they are clear and no one will even notice that you are wearing them!
Those that currently wear invisalign love it because there is no metal to deal with, so they don't have to worry about food getting caught in their brackets or their gums or lips getting cut up. Unlike traditional braces, with invisalign, you can take your retainers in and out to eat. There are a few downsides to traditional braces. One downside is traditional braces hinder you from being able to eat all the good stuff you love like gum, chewy candy, or even popcorn! Also, with traditional braces, food gets stuck in your brackets and wires and can be quite embarrassing if you don't have a toothbrush handy!
If you are interested in invisalign, call us at Sweet Water Dentistry to set up an initial appointment where we can get impressions and pictures done. Impressions are taken to ensure that your invisalign trays are custom fit perfectly. Invisalign retainers are usually comfortable to wear once you get used to them. At first, invisalign retainers will cause your teeth to be a little sore because it is going to be pulling on your teeth. In order for invisalign to do the job right, you must wear the retainers for 22 hours out of each day. This means you should only take them out to eat and brush your teeth.
Dr. Greer of Sweet Water Dentistry strives to make sure that each patient has a smile that they are proud to show the world. If you are ready to get started with invisalign and on your way to a straighter smile, simply call us at 251-550-7770 to schedule your appointment.
