4 Ways Invisalign Helps You And Your Smile

  • December 1, 2016

Are your teeth crooked? But do you hate the idea of wearing metal braces at your age? Then call our Honolulu, HI dental office today at 808-797-3680 and make an appointment for Invisalign. Dr. Miyasaki takes continuing education courses through the prestigious Pankey Institute and the Las Vegas Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry. He has training that the average dentist does not. Combine that with Invisalign, and you can soon have a straight smile without metal.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is short-term orthodontic treatment. Like braces, it will reposition your teeth and jaw and help you have an aligned smile and bite. But unlike braces, Invisalign has no metal. Instead, you get a series of clear plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth. Each tray is slightly different. As you change trays every few weeks, you gently guide your teeth where they belong.

Does Invisalign work? Definitely! There are rare cases when metal braces are preferred, such as if you have a severe overbite. But for most people, your Invisalign results will be just what you needed.

By calling Dr. Miyasaki today, you are one step closer to getting that straight smile you deserve but without metal or wires. Dr. Miyasaki has the advanced training needed to help use Invisalign correctly and efficiently.

The Other Invisalign Results You Can Enjoy

Because Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment, the benefits you get from it are beyond repositioned teeth and jaws. Here are four Invisalign results you might not know.

1. You won’t have to spend years with food restrictions.

Wearing metal braces means several years of restrictions on what you can eat. Some foods like bagels and pretzels are hard or chewy enough to damage the braces. Other foods like gum or caramel are too sticky. They can get stuck to the braces (and thereby your teeth).

By calling our Honolulu, HI dental office today, you can get one step closer to orthodontics without food restrictions. That’s because your Invisalign clear plastic trays can be taken out whenever you want. Pop them out, eat what you want, brush and floss, and pop them back it. Dr. Miyasaki is well trained in Invisalign and can help you get the results you need while eating normally.

2. People will have a hard time knowing you’re even using Invisalign.

One of the biggest reasons so many teens and adults do not want braces is the metal. Simply put, metal brackets and wires look very out of place in your smile. For adults, it’s even worse because braces make you look immature.

That’s why you need to call us today and make an appointment for Invisalign. Because they’re made of clear plastic, they are practically invisible when worn. People will have a hard time noticing them. That’s a big reason why Dr. Miyasaki offers this discreet orthodontic treatment. He worries about you as a person, not just your teeth.

3. The inside of your mouth won’t get cut or scarred.

One of the drawbacks of metal braces is how they can get caught on the inside of your mouth. People who wear braces for 2-3 years often report having many small cuts on the inner cheek. Some even have scar tissue there from repeated cuts.

Call us today at 808-797-3680 to get Invisalign. Since they are made from smooth plastic, there’s literally nothing to catch on the inside of your cheek. Your cheeks will never get cut by Invisalign.

4. You will likely be complete with your Invisalign treatment in about one year.

Metal braces certainly work, but it’s a slow process. Most people have to wear traditional braces for 2-3 years. Plus, they need to visit their dentist’s office over and over again to have the wire tightened. Otherwise, it won’t work. That adds up to a lot of visits, and each one costs you.

By calling Dr. Miyasaki today, you can schedule an appointment for Invisalign. For many patients, Invisalign is complete in about one year. Plus, you’ll get several clear plastic trays at each visit. You won’t need to come to our Honolulu, HI dental office nearly as much. That saves you time and money while still giving you straight teeth.
