Have you ever tried to solve one of those hidden picture puzzles?

If you have, then you may know the frustration of finding all but one of the hidden items. You know it’s there, but you just can’t see it. It’s what makes those puzzles both challenging and satisfying to complete.

Hiding in plain sight is not always a bad thing. Imagine you could complete an orthodontic treatment that was, for all practical purposes, invisible. It could be hiding in the open in a way that most people would never notice it was there.

Imagine if you could complete an orthodontic treatment that was, for all practical purposes, invisible. It could be hiding in the open in a way that most people would never notice it was there.

This kind of treatment does exist, and it’s easy to find if you live in our or near Sterling Heights, MI. All you have to do is call Forever Young Dentistry and say, “I want to know more about Invisalign®.”

What Do You Want To Change?

Speaking of problems that are hidden in plain sight, take a moment to think about your teeth. If you have a mirror nearby, you may want to look at your smile.

If you have been considering orthodontic treatment, you are already aware that you would like to change some things. You may not have time to identify specifically what those changes are.

Here are some questions you can ask yourself:

▷ Do you have gaps between two or more of your teeth?

▷ Are some of your teeth crowded together?

▷ Are your teeth crooked?

Now consider what happens when you close your teeth together.

▷ Does your top row of teeth stick out noticeably further than your bottom row?

▷ Do your bottom teeth cover your top teeth?

▷ Do your top and bottom rows of teeth overlap one another in different spaces?

▷ Is there a visible opening between your top and bottom teeth when your bite is “closed”?

Invisalign can help you fix one or a combination of these alignment and bite issues. It’s not a treatment that will work for everyone, but it has been proven to help millions of people since it was first introduced.

Will It Help You?

The easiest and most effective way to find out is to schedule a consultation at Forever Young Dentistry. Dr. Young can examine your teeth and talk to you about the changes you would like to make.

This can give you an expert opinion on whether Invisalign is an appropriate treatment option.

A more preliminary assessment is available on the Invisalign website. By answering a few questions about yourself, you can find out if Invisalign may be a possibility for you.

Again, keep in mind that this is a preliminary assessment, and it will likely only let you know if you should talk to a dentist about Invisalign.

The severity of your alignment and bite issues, as well as the overall health of your teeth, can affect if Invisalign is something you should consider.

What Are The Benefits?

The biggest benefit is that your teeth will be straight if you follow your treatment like you should.

When your teeth are straighter, your smile will look nicer. And when your smile looks nicer, you may find that you feel more confident, too. We’ve seen it happen with many of our patients.

Other benefits of using Invisalign take place during the treatment itself. Invisalign offers many advantages over traditional braces.

This starts with what we mentioned in our introduction. Invisalign is virtually invisible when it’s on your teeth. This is why some people refer to it as clear braces.

The Invisalign aligners are computer-designed and made of transparent plastics. When they cover your teeth, they have minimal effect on the appearance of your teeth even as they are slowly pushing your teeth to their final position.

And unlike with braces, you can remove your Invisalign aligners every day for up to two hours. What you do with those two hours is up to you, but we would recommend using that time to eat and to brush and floss your teeth.

With braces, you may need to give up certain foods so it doesn’t get stuck, pop your brackets off your teeth, or cause your wire to bend or break.
