A+ Family Dentistry February 2019

If a genie offered someone three wishes, you might be surprised to learn how many people would wish for straighter teeth. Around four million Americans wear braces, and most would like to reach the end of their treatment as soon as possible. Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as magic. But at A+ Family Dentistry, we have the next best thing for patients looking to break the curse of crooked teeth: Invisalign. Here are a few “magic” spells Invisalign can cast. Invisibility Invisalign might not be magic, but its power of invisibility cannot be undersold. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without those distracting metal brackets. For adults who put off fixing their teeth because they thought braces were just for teenagers, Invisalign offers a bright future. LIKE MAGIC 3 Reasons to Choose Invisalign

Time Control Patients that wear braces need to see their orthodontist every four weeks. With Invisalign, dental visits are far less frequent, meaning you don’t have to move your schedule around as often. What’s more, Invisalign patients usually spend a year less in treatment than patients with brackets. Instant Fun Unlike braces that can demand dietary changes or interfere with your favorite hobbies, Invisalign allows you to still enjoy your lifestyle. Thanks to the freedom to remove the plastic trays, you can still enjoy bagels, popcorn, nuts, apples, corn on the cob, and other favorite foods that would be off-limits to patients wearing braces. And because the metal brackets and wires of braces could be

damaged, Invisalign is the preferred choice for patients who play football, soccer, and other high energy sports. Invisalign is a great way to improve your health and build your confidence. This month, we have three more reasons why Invisalign is one of the best options in orthodontics. We’re offering a free consultation to all our patients to learn if Invisalign is right for them. Once the treatment is done, you’ll be ready to show off your new smile after a free teeth whitening . And we’ll help you keep your beautiful smile for life with free retainers at the end of the treatment. Don’t keep wishing for beautiful teeth; make an appointment today and learn how the magic of Invisalign can transform your smile.
