Invisalign: The Modern Approach To Braces

Disclaimer:  This is a sponsored post.  However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.


I remember my sister having to get braces when she was in high school.  All the wires and metal in her mouth, made her very self conscious of her smile. I vividly remember the day she came home from the orthodontist with her braces , she was in a lot of pain.  She was teased and called names like "metal mouth" and "brace face".  She could not eat certain foods because of the braces. And chewing gum was completely out of the picture for her.  Brushing and flossing was a chore for her with all the metal and wires in her mouth.  She wanted a beautiful smile, so she endured the pain from the braces and the name calling from her peers. 






With the modern advances in orthodontia, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen are becoming more and more popular.  The system uses a series of clear aligners made of lightweight plastic that sit comfortably on the teeth and are just as effective as traditional braces, without all the wires and brackets.  The aligners are removable, so brushing and flossing can be done with ease. You can smile with confidence, because the aligners are virtually invisible. Your smile is the first thing people look at, and having a beautiful, straight teeth makes you more self confident. The cost of this treatment is about the same as traditional braces. There are fewer office visits, shorter appointment times, and no emergency visits for broken wires or brackets.  






After reading all the information about Invisalign , they work as well as traditional braces. You can see for yourself by reading How Invisalign Works.  Through modern technology, adults and teens can have beautiful, straight teeth without the pain.  I was recently told that my son would  eventually need braces and I am happy to know that Invisalign is an alternative for him.  After checking out the Invisalign Doctor Locator, I was pleased to find that that there is a doctor right here in my hometown.  

Be sure and check out Invisalign on their website,  Facebook,  and Twitter.

Did you have braces as a teen or adult?

  1. I sure wish they had those way back when I had braces--those metal torture devices might have straightened my teeth but they also ate right into them!!

  2. That's great that they are invisible on the teeth. Great option to have. Seems that they work better than wire braces so that is big plus.

  4. I had to go through two rounds of orthodontics to get my teeth straight. I have heard a lot of good things about Invisalign, but I don't think they are indicated for really bad cases of crowded teeth like I had. This sure is a nice option for less severe cases, though.

  6. I had those horrible metal braces with the night band to go with it. I hated them. We have been checking out invisalign for my oldest son, have to save quite a bit more money first.

  10. I've heard about this before and I think this is a perfect alternative to the traditional metal braces. I haven't worn them personally, but I know the three of my nieces would have loved this option instead. Great Info and review!

  13. I had traditional braces for a year in 6th grade. I wish I hadn't gotten them so early because my teeth have changed so much since then, especially after having kids! I would LOVE to get invisalign now, as an adult.
