In this Information Age that we live in, everything seems to be moving faster and faster. That means that your time is becoming more restricted by the day, making it harder to set aside the space necessary to care for yourself, so you suffer casualties as a result. One of these neglected aspects of yourself is your appearance and more specifically, your smile. Its imperfections have been plaguing you for some time now, but you just can’t imagine spending years in braces to achieve straight teeth. You need a solution that fits into your fast-paced life. That’s why your dentist offers the benefits of a new type of Invisalign of Plano corrective method, called Invisalign Go. Learn more about it as you read ahead.
What is Invisalign Go?
Invisalign Go is a new expansion on the Invisalign system of correcting your smile. It offers the same advantages of BPA-free plastic trays that comfortably adjust your teeth to your desired position, using no wires, and allowing you to clean your teeth and gums thoroughly.
The main difference between Invisalign and Invisalign Go, is that the latter is an even faster method of adjusting your teeth, usually taking three months to complete.
Is Invisalign Go Right for You?
You may have worn traditional braces in the past and failed to wear your retainer afterwards, leaving you with a small gap or minor misalignment in your teeth. Or maybe you always wanted to correct your smile but never followed through with any type of treatment. You could still be eligible for Invisalign Go, but your dentist will be able to make a final determination whether you’re a good candidate by examining the current state of your teeth.
Just remember that even if you’re not eligible for Invisalign Go, you can still correct your smile through one of the many other methods.
Why is Straightening Your Teeth Important?
Straightening your teeth is important for several reasons. Here is a list of some of them:
- Improved Self-Esteem – The way you feel about yourself is essential to your overall wellness, because your positive thoughts help you maintain a healthier state mentally and physically.
- Better Interactions with Other People – Studies show that one-third of people say that the aspect of your appearance that they remember the most is your teeth. And other data show that 73% of people say they are more likely to trust a person with a nice smile than someone lacking. Thus, the beam of your pearly whites can either open doors for you or cause them to be closed.
- Improved Function – A misconception is that straightening your teeth only offers cosmetic benefits, but the reality is that it also aids in how well you chew your food, speak and are able to clean your mouth, teeth and gums.
If you are ready to experience having the appearance and function that you’ve previously just dreamed of, then reach out to your dentist and give Invisalign Go the green light.
