We provide patients with dental aligners in Florissant. Dental aligners are a popular way to straighten teeth and just as effective as braces for most situations. However, instead of securing brackets to each tooth, aligners are removable for convenience. To find out if this is a solution that can improve your smile, visit our clinic.
Why dental aligners in Florissant are popular with young professionals
Young professionals are turning to orthodontic treatments to improve their appearance and their smile. Dental aligners are one of the most dramatic ways to positively impact a person’s appearance. As an orthodontist, we get a front-row seat to see how amazing our patients look when done. Here are a few of the reasons this solution is popular amongst young professionals.
#1. A beautiful smile makes a good impression
Throughout a person’s career, it is important to make good impressions and build connections to begin moving up the ladder. Whether this means getting the opportunity to move up within an organization or to take a position at a competing firm, young professionals are typically on the lookout for career opportunities that can contribute to long-term success.
A beautiful smile is one way to stand out and make a good impression. When professionals see a candidate with a beautiful and straight smile, it gives off the perception of being open, friendly, and a team player.
#2. Aligners are removable and convenient
Patients need to remove the aligners when eating and brushing teeth. With aligners, there is no chance of an embarrassing lunch meeting with a client with food between the brackets. It also means that the patients can remove the aligners when making an important presentation at work or having a meeting where they can potentially cause an inconvenience. Traditional braces do not provide this level of flexibility.
#3. Aligners are nearly invisible
As long as the teeth and the aligners are clean, they will remain virtually invisible and be difficult to detect. Unless someone is standing up close, they will probably not notice the aligners. Keeping the aligners this way only requires brushing teeth after every meal or snack and rinsing the aligners throughout the day.
The aligners themselves are only meant to be worn for around two weeks at a time before the next one in the series replaces it. This makes it easy to keep the aligners looking invisible.
How dental aligners in Florissant work
Aligners are created in a series that needs to be worn in sequence. Each aligner moves the teeth that much closer to the final position and should be worn for around 20 to 22 hours per day. Once the patient wears the entire series, the teeth will be in the correct position, with an improved smile and complete treatment. In some instances, other treatments work with aligners, but most patients only need to wear them to improve their smile.
