Ask these Questions if you want Straighter Teeth

Invisalign Philadelphia | Dr. Lindsey MarshallMost of us envision a straight, radiant smile for ourselves. In reality, this may not be a given. Misalignment is a common problem that isn’t always addressed during adolescence, as we imagine. Adults who want a straighter smile may have reservations about their treatment options. One option may give the impression of inefficiency, while the traditional option of braces presents an entirely different selection of doubts. We’re here to tell you that it should not be that difficult to get a smile you love, and teeth that are as healthy as you want them to be. All you need to do is ask a few simple questions . . .


Why would you want to have your teeth straightened? We suspect that the initial answer that comes to mind is because you want to feel better about the esthetics of your smile. Having straighter teeth can mean that you want to smile more. However, it also means that you may enjoy better oral health for the rest of your life, too, and that is nothing to shake a stick at.

Why not?

Why wouldn’t you want to have your teeth straightened? Really, why wouldn’t you? When you know, you would feel more confident with a more attractive smile, and you know that your teeth will be more easily maintained, what could stand in your way? The primary reasons we hear from patients is that they don’t want to wear braces. This is an assumption that should be challenged. Many of our patients can get the straight smile they want with Invisalign rather than metal or even tooth-colored braces.

Another common idea that adults get when they consider straightening their teeth is that they are too old. We say it doesn’t matter how old you are; you deserve a healthy, attractive smile that makes you feel good about yourself.
