4 Reasons To Straighten Your Smile With Invisalign
We are big fans of Invisalign® at our office.
We’ll explain some of the many reasons why in a moment. The main reason, however, is that so many of our patients gained confidence in their smiles and in themselves after using this orthodontic option.
When Invisalign was first conceived, it was developed with adult patients in mind. And it’s certainly true that many people who would have never considered wearing braces now have the smiles they always wanted thanks to their custom-made plastic aligners.
At the office of Hugh B. Rosenblatt, DMD, we can help you fix your overbite and your crooked smile and close the gap between your teeth. Call 561-877-3802 now if you want to learn more about Invisalign at our Boynton Beach, FL dental office.

1. Straight Teeth Are Easier to Clean
We know this may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you are thinking about orthodontics. It is, however, a big part of the reason Dr. Rosenblatt offers Invisalign clear aligners for our patients.
When your teeth are crowded or crooked, you may have trouble cleaning them completely. In the long-run, that’s good for cavity-causing bacteria and bad for your oral health. Bite issues (such as overbites and underbites) can cause unneeded wear and tear on your teeth. That, too, can increase your risk of decay and gum disease.
By straightening your teeth, your routine brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings will be even more effective. You’ll be able to remove more plaque, more bacteria, and more food particles to keep your teeth looking their best.
2. Straight Teeth Look Nicer
OK, OK … we know this is a big part of why many people are interested in orthodontic care. And for many patients, Invisalign is an excellent way to turn that crooked smile into something special.
The aligners are custom-designed using computer software. That means your aligners will be made to move your teeth an no one else’s. By wearing your aligners as directed, you could have a new smile in about 12 months in many cases.
You can transform your teeth to give yourself a new reason to show them off in person and in pictures. You might be surprised by how different it makes you feel, too.
3. You Can Eat What You Want During Your Treatment
With braces, you are likely to have restrictions on your diet. Crunchy and hard foods can cause problems. So can sticky and chewy treats. It also doesn’t help that you have to clean around those brackets and wires to remove each little bit of food.
By choosing Invisalign, you can simplify this process. The aligners should be taken out while you eat. That means you can eat anything you want during your treatment. Just remember to brush, floss, and clean your aligner before putting it back in your mouth.
4. Your Treatment is Discreet
This may actually be the biggest reason so many people use Invisalign. Many people — particularly adults — say they would feel self-conscious about wearing braces in professional and social situations.
Since the Invisalign aligners are clear, most people won’t notice you are wearing them. This can help you feel more comfortable at a business meeting or a get-together with your friends.
