Invisalign®: A Discreet Method of Achieving A Straighter Smile
From addressing cosmetic concerns to ensuring that gums stay disease free, maintaining straight, healthy teeth is important for a variety of reasons. To this end, braces were the preferred straightening option for many over 25 years. While this treatment is certainly effective, things like discomfort and difficulty brushing are typically standard when dealing with traditional braces. For those dealing with mild to moderate misaligned teeth, the Invisalign® system can be an efficient means of improving one’s smile without the hassle of braces. Invisalign® can remedy a range of dental concerns, from correction of overbites to crooked teeth, thereby helping patients achieve a healthy and happy smile.
How Invisalign® Works
While traditional braces are highly effective at straightening teeth, they aren’t always the best option for everyone. This is especially true for teens and adults, who may be interested in correcting their smiles but unwilling to put up with the difficulty often associated with braces. Unlike conventional methods, Invisalign® offers more flexibility when it comes to straightening one’s teeth. Utilizing an advanced computer technology that encourages incremental tooth movement, Invisalign® subtly alters teeth by way of a series of aligners custom-designed for each patient. This helps patients improve their smiles without suffering from the side effects associated with other straightening treatments. The Invisalign® treatment is also much more aesthetically appealing, as this system is all but invisible.
Benefits of Invisalign®
There are quite a few health benefits associated with the Invisalign treatment. If teeth are too crowded or otherwise oddly spaced, proper dental hygiene can be difficult to achieve on a daily basis. This can contribute greatly to things like gum disease, which can result in quite a few ill-effects if left untreated. Invisalign® also renders eating a much easier process. Because the device can be removed for brushing and flossing, there is no risk of foods becoming stuck as with traditional braces. Certain foods may need to be avoided by those with braces, which is not an issue with Invisalign®. The Invisalign® system is also far less noticeable, which can be important for patients of all ages.
