Get More Than A Great Smile With Invisalign! [BLOG]

Are your teeth crowded, crooked, or gapped?

If they are, you’ve probably spent years trying to just accept your smile for what it is.

After all, what choice do you have, now that you’re too old to wear metal braces like your kids?

Well, you’re never too old to have a smile that makes you happy, as far as our team at Patrick Stuckey DDS is concerned!

Get More Than A Great Smile With Invisalign

Here are some of the things you get, in addition to the straight smile of your dreams, when you choose Invisalign treatment in Ruston, LA!


If only you could pull the wires out and take each bracket off of your teeth whenever you wanted to so you could eat, brush, and floss normally.

If only you didn’t have to go back to the dentist all the time to have the wires tightened.

Sounds too good to be true, and that’s because with metal braces, it is.

But it’s exactly the kind of convenience Invisalign patients enjoy!

All you have to do to keep your teeth clean and maintain the diet you want is take out your aligners when you need to!


This is probably the number one reason adults put off braces. Not only do they assume it’s their only option, but a straight smile may not be worth the changes to their appearance.

At least, not if you’re in college, grad school, or already in the workforce trying to earn the respect and confidence of your superiors.

But you don’t have to wear metal braces. You can rely on discreet aligners, clear plastic trays that fit perfectly over your teeth without making it obvious to everyone else that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.


It’s not the most painful thing in the world, having brackets and wires inside your mouth. But it’s not a walk in the park, either.

Not only can the hard, sharp, or jagged metal scrape against the inside of your lips and cheeks, but the soreness you feel for a few days after the periodic tightening of the wires can be really uncomfortable.

With clear aligners, everything is smooth against your soft tissues and the pressure isn’t as intense when you switch to a new tray in the series.

*Less Waiting*

If you wore regular braces, you’d have to wait anywhere from 18 to 24 months to complete your treatment.

On the other hand, Invisalign patients don’t have to wait as long to see results.

In most cases, clear aligners straighten up crooked teeth in about a year, and sometimes even faster than that!


If metal braces didn’t work, they wouldn’t be around anymore. Reserved for more serious teeth and bite alignment issues, standard brackets and wires are the best solution.

But for everyone else, there’s Invisalign!

When we provide clear aligner therapy to patients who qualify, the end result is always a straight, beautiful smile!
