Even in the Time of COVID, Invisalign Makes Sense

Nationwide stay-at-home recommendations were announced several months ago. Since that time, time on social media has increased an astounding 61%. There may be some benefits to this but there are drawbacks, as well. If you spend any time on social media, you are being inundated with advertisements for everything from clothing to beauty treatments and more. One such advertisement that has become popular in recent years and is surging among people using this time to address their smile concerns is mail order teeth-straightening aligners. Here, we discuss why, even during the time of COVID, Invisalign makes more sense than mail-order systems like Smile Direct.

Invisalign Leaves No Room for Error

Teeth-straightening affects more than the look of your smile. When teeth are crooked, overlapping, and misaligned, they do not fit well together. This may place excessive stress on the joints of the jaw. Teeth may not meet up against one another as they should. This increases the risk of gum disease and tooth decay that could result in fractures. Seeing how impactful misalignment is, we realize that there is no room for error when correcting this problem. When you see a dentist for Invisalign, you receive a thorough dental examination, high-resolution imaging, sophisticated treatment planning, and continual oversight through periodic check-ups. The process ensures that you get the results you want.

Invisalign is Approved by the American Dental Association

When considering products and treatments, it is important to look for the ADA seal of approval. This organization was established with the mission of providing people with effective, safe dental care. As an approved teeth-straightening treatment, Invisalign takes the whole mouth into consideration, including individual teeth, roots, the gums, and the joints that operate the jaw.

We understand the desire that people have to straighten their teeth conveniently and comfortably. We understand that mail-order braces can seem like both of those, as well as a low-cost option for getting a better smile. In the end, undergoing treatment with a board-certified dentist is the safest, most cost-effective option there is.
