09 Feb 5 Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign has become a very popular tooth straightening system – especially among teens and adults. This revolutionary orthodontic method improves the positioning of teeth in a very inconspicuous manner. Patients with Invisalign enjoy a number of benefits including comfortable and effective treatment. Our dentist office is honored to offer Invisalign to members of our community.
Invisalign Straightens Teeth Effectively
Like traditional, metal and wire braces, Invisalign slowly moves teeth to straighter and healthier positions over time. Invisalign utilizes force and pressure with form-fitting oral appliances to move teeth during the course of treatment. This orthodontic system can improve the appearance and position of gapped, crooked, and overlapped teeth as well as a person’s occlusion.
Invisalign is Discreet
Invisalign treatment consists of wearing clear, plastic appliances called aligners. These aligners are very discreet and are virtually undetectable to others. This makes straightening one’s teeth much more inconspicuous than other forms of orthodontia.
Aligners are Removable
Invisalign aligners can be removed for meals and oral hygiene. This allows patients to thoroughly clean their teeth without brackets and wires obstructing their toothbrush or floss. Those receiving Invisalign can also eat any type of food comfortably.
Invisalign is Comfortable
Since Invisalign is made from soft plastic, the aligners will not cut into or irritate the linings of lips and cheeks. This makes receiving teeth straightening treatment much more comfortable when compared to traditional metal braces.
Straight Teeth are Healthier Teeth
When teeth are positioned properly, patients tend to enjoy better oral health. This is because properly spaced, aligned teeth are easier to keep clean and thus, are less susceptible to dental caries, gum disease and the advanced problems related to these conditions.
Our practice believes that it’s never too late to straighten one’s teeth and improve one’s oral health and appearance. If you are interested in straightening your smile, we recommend that you schedule a consultation with our dentists to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
