There are several reasons why patients of a certain generation did not get the braces they needed when they were younger. For one, families were larger, and the expense was often one that could not be accommodated.
As a dentist in Reston VA, we have seen a considerable increase in people reaching a point in their lives where they want the confidence of an enhanced smile – especially when it is affordably achieved and a comfortable process.
We will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to confirm your candidacy for these braces that have revolutionized orthodontics. What this Reston dentist loves is the universality of them! The technology is suitable for both teens and adults.
Invisalign® – Pros and Cons
This is one of those dental decisions that is a no-brainer as there really are no downsides when compared with traditional metal braces.
- With Invisalign®, the aligners are clear and therefore essentially invisible.
- They are smooth and comfortable.
- The aligners are removable for easy and thorough cleaning.
- You can eat the messiest foods that you likely shouldn’t even attempt when sporting metal bands and wires.
Those metal braces are certainly effective, but you pay the price with higher maintenance, and you are constantly aware they are there as material like that makes its presence known.
Not to mention the labor intensive cleaning and flossing rituals associated with metal braces and the prohibitive diet. That is, if you want to get through the day without marring your smile with food particles which make for an unsavory statement.
