  • December 28, 2016

You may have heard about “invisible braces” and wondered if they could help your smile. Invisalign is about as close to invisible as you can get. That’s why you should call our Birmingham, AL dental office today at 248-972-8720. Dr. Newingham is a highly trained dentist who knows how Invisalign helps straighten teeth without metal.

What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign is a thoroughly modern orthodontic treatment. Traditional braces work, but they are often uncomfortable and unattractive. That’s because they cement metal brackets to your teeth and connect them with wire. A mouthful of metal and wire is not appealing.

That’s what makes Invisalign so special. You’ll receive a series of clear plastic trays that fit over your teeth. Each one is shaped a bit different. By wearing them in sequence, you’ll safely move your teeth to their right position. If you are wondering, “Does Invisalign work,” then the answer is “Definitely!”

By calling us today, you can schedule your first appointment for Invisalign. Dr. Newingham has helped many people over the years get a straight, aligned smile without metal or wires. That gives him the experience to understand how Invisalign works with different people.

Some Little-Known Invisalign Results

However, Invisalign gives you more than just straight teeth. Here are several little-known advantages to choosing Invisalign for your orthodontic treatment.

– Invisalign won’t scrape up or cut the inside of your cheeks.

Traditional braces move your teeth by using metal brackets and wires. These can sometimes catch on the inside of your cheek. Since you have to wear braces for 2-3 years, that can really scrape up and cut the inside of your mouth.

Invisalign does not have that problem. The aligners you wear over your teeth are made from smooth plastic. There’s literally nothing that can scrape or cut your cheeks. Dr. Newingham cares about your total health, which is why he is a big fan of Invisalign.

– Invisalign is almost invisible when worn.

This is one of the biggest reasons so many people love Invisalign. Instead of wearing metal on your teeth for 2-3 years, you get a series of clear plastic aligners. Once you place them over your teeth, it’s almost impossible to see them. You can get orthodontic treatment that people will hardly notice.

Call us today at 248-972-8720 and schedule your first appointment for Invisalign. Dr. Newingham understands you want straight teeth but without embarrassing braces. That’s why he took training in using Invisalign.

– Invisalign does not require any food or drink restrictions.

Metal braces have a lot of restrictions on what you can eat and drink. That’s because some food will either stick to braces such as gum or caramel. Sticking there means it also sticks close to your teeth, which increases your risk of cavities. Other foods like pretzels are too hard and can damage braces.

That’s why you need to call our Birmingham, AL dental office today. Invisalign clear aligners can be taken out whenever you want. When it’s time to eat, you have no restrictions because you can take the aligners out until you’re done. Plus, Dr. Newingham is well-trained and experienced in straightening smiles safely with Invisalign clear aligners.

– Invisalign is usually finished 1-2 years faster than traditional braces.

With traditional braces, you’ll likely have to wear all that metal for 2-3 years. That means up to three years of dental visits, cutting your cheeks, eating restrictions, and more. Invisalign is much different. For most people, you are finished in 12 months. And because you have less dental visits, you can save time and money.
