The Easier Teeth Straightening Solution

December 1st, 2012

I had been going to My Tooth Spa, my Fair Oaks dentist, for a number of years before I considered getting Invisalign treatment to straighten my teeth. Truthfully, I didn’t even know that dentists could even offer cosmetic services like that, but My Tooth Spa is one of the only Sacramento dentists who offer Invisalign at their dental offices.  One day, when I had a regular dental exam appointment, I noticed a sign on the side of the office that said that they offered Invisalign. And that got me thinking.

For years I had thought about getting my teeth fixed. I just wasn’t sure what the best option for me would be. I had braces when I was a teenager, so I was reluctant to get them again, just because I felt I had already paid my dues. And I felt my teeth weren’t bad enough to warrant braces. I needed something that wasn’t so invasive but that wouldn’t interfere with my lifestyle. I always thought Invisalign would be the best option for me.

When I went in for my regular appointment at My Tooth Spa, I asked my dentist if she thought it would be possible for me to get Invisalign as an option for teeth straightening. I told her that I had braces 20 years ago and that since then, my teeth have become slightly crooked. Crooked enough that I was considering getting them fixes. She was really helpful and let me know what my options were.

To get my teeth where I want them to be, it would take about 6 months with Invisalign. I actually thought that seemed incredibly short. I was pretty excited to hear that I could potentially have the smile I wanted in less than a year. Half of a year’s time.

The best part was that Invisalign is totally reasonably prices now that it’s been around longer. It would be the same amount as braces would be—why would I even consider looking like a teenager, if I could have the sleek invisibility of Invisalign as a teeth straightening strategy.

I am so glad I was able to get Invisalign through my own dentist. It was really helpful because one roadblock I faced was in having to find an orthodontist. I loved that I just went to my regular dentist for my cosmetic procedures. In addition to the Invisalign, I also got my teeth whitened. It was awesome!
