Invisible Braces Can Restore Your Confidence Invisalign Independence Mo


Confidence Is Key!

Confidence is something that people from all walks of life should have. Whether you’re a hardworking professional managing the demands of the business world, or a thriving teenager navigating through those formatives (and sometimes tedious) high school years, learning to carry yourself with confidence is a skill that everyone can benefit from throughout their lifetime. However, there are numerous obstacles in life that can hurt or be a deterrent to your confidence, and if you are self-conscious about your smile, this can certainly be an issue.

Sadly, according to a recent survey conducted by the American Association of Orthodontists, approximately one-third of the U.S. population today report being unhappy with their smile, with many people saying that their smile would be the first thing that they would that they would like to change about their appearance. With such staggering statistics, it’s clear that a person’s smile can have a major positive or negative impact on their confidence, and with so many new innovations in dental technology, there’s simply no reason for your smile to bring you down!

At the offices of Thomas L. Anderson, DDS and Associates we have introduced a fantastic technology to our patients known as Invisalign.  As an alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign invisible braces has allowed us to restore the smiles of patients of all ages and helped them regain their confidence!

The Skinny On Invisalign

  • Invisalign comes in the form of thin, removable, transparent aligners that are customized to fit over your teeth.
  • These soft but resilient aligners are designed to be worn daily, and only to be removed when eating or brushing your teeth.
  • Each aligner is to be worn approximately one to two weeks, afterwards they can be discarded and replaced with a new one; this consistently adjusts and realigns the patient’s teeth.
  • The realignment process in its entirety can take anywhere from 6 to 18 months depending on each individual case and requires the user to make relatively few changes to their daily habits.

Due to their transparency, minimally invasive nature, and of course overall effectiveness, Invisalign Independence is an ideal solution for those who are eager to straighten their teeth, but self-conscious about doing so. Invisalign can effectively improve your smile while remaining virtually unnoticeable. We can help you restore your confidence with Invisalign invisible braces.

Invisalign & Braces: What’s The Difference?

In contrast to the technology of Invisalign, standard metal braces have been used for many years, and have been well established as the primary method to straighten teeth and correct jaw alignment.

However, while sturdy and effective, the downside of braces is the fact that they do require an extra amount of care and unfortunately, they will require you to avoid certain food products.

Food items such as:

  • popcorn
  • hard fruits
  • hard candy
  • chewing gum
  • corn on the cob

These are all products that you are recommended not to eat while wearing braces, as they are likely to compromise the brace’s structure or get caught between the metal brackets or wires.

Additionally, other less than desirable aspects of braces are the relative discomfort that users sometimes experience while wearing braces, as well as their appearance that can cause social anxiety.

As mentioned previously, these key differences from braces are perhaps what has led to the recent surge in Invisalign’s popularity, and while Invisalign Independence isn’t right for everyone, it has provided an ideal solution for many.

When and When Not To Wear Invisalign 

Invisible braces are more comfortable, offer up faster treatment, and cost about the same as regular braces. If you like playing contact sports or are often involved in physical activity, you can still wear them. Remember, We Choose Invisalign; Your Smile is Not a DIY Project — that’s why you want to work with a team of professionals to correct your smile.
