When you count your blessings this year, your friends at Smiles of Punta Gorda, FL think a straight, beautiful smile you feel good about should be somewhere on that list.

We offer Invisalign, an innovative orthodontic solution that allows you to achieve great results faster and more comfortably than you would with traditional metal braces.

Today, we’re giving you three reasons this clear aligners system is a blessing for older teens and adults who want straight teeth without the usual limitations and sacrifices of conventional orthodontics.

1. A Healthier Smile

Each day when you brush and floss your teeth, you have to dislodge food particles from your mouth in a lot of already hard-to-reach places. Crowding inside your mouth only makes good oral hygiene more difficult.

When it’s easier to maintain a clean mouth, as is the case when your teeth are perfectly aligned, you stand a better chance of achieving better dental health.

2. A Safer Smile

As your teeth are moved into the proper position, they will begin to line up as they should so when you bite down, your upper and lower teeth aren’t crashing into each other.

What that means is a lower risk for nicks, chips, and other fractures to your tooth enamel and less dental wear and tear.

3. A Better-Looking Smile

Straight teeth look better than crooked, gapped teeth, and that translates into a more attractive smile. But you don’t have to wait until your Invisalign treatment is complete to feel confident. As the aligners straighten your teeth, you’re able to maintain a professional appearance instead of feeling self-conscious about metal brackets and wires in your mouth.

Clear aligners are almost impossible to see, and they deliver results typically within a year.

So you can enjoy having a great-looking smile sooner!
