The Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign is the ideal orthodontic system for that perfect smile you are dreaming of. 

We all want to leave someone with the very best first impression possible, but if you have a crooked smile you may find yourself hiding your teeth from those around you. So, if you’ve been contemplating getting braces and you’re a teen or adult, our Frankfort, and Louisville, KY, orthodontist Dr. Nancy Shackleton is happy to provide you with Invisalign.

What makes Invisalign so different from other orthodontic options in Frankfort, and Louisville, KY?

They are removable: Unlike traditional braces, you can remove your clear braces during mealtime and to brush and floss. This means that you don’t have to worry about brushing around metal and not being able to get into hard-to-reach spots because of braces.

Additionally, you can still enjoy all of your favorite foods without restrictions. Plus, if you have a special occasion coming up, you can remove your aligners for the big event and then pop them back in when it’s over. It’s as easy as that!

They are comfortable: When you have metal in your mouth, it’s not surprising that at some point the wires and brackets could irritate your gums and cheeks. Since Invisalign is made from flexible plastic that is customized to fit your smile, you don't have to worry about it rubbing against your gums and causing sores or irritation.

They're more convenient: If you have a busy lifestyle, the last thing you want to do is visit your orthodontist more than you have to. With traditional braces, you may find yourself in the dentist’s office more than you would like, which can be challenging if you are in school or working. Invisalign boasts fewer doctor visits, so you only have to see your orthodontist about every six weeks.

Dr. Shackleton specializes in early and adult orthodontic treatment including clear aligner systems such as Invisalign for patients living in and around  Frankfort, and Louisville, KY. It’s never too late to have a straight smile. To find out if Invisalign is right for you, call us at (502) 637-2900 or (502) 223-0211.
