Invisalign®: The Clear Solution for a Straighter Smile
Invisalign is a great solution for patients who are intimidated by the idea of wearing traditional metal and wire orthodontic braces. Patients who have poorly aligned teeth can benefit from orthodontic treatments not just by attaining an even, aesthetically attractive smile — they also improve the quality of their oral health.
Invisalign: A great option for straightening teeth
Having straight teeth is not just about having an orderly and attractive smile. It is also an excellent preventative measure, guarding against tooth loss, chips and cracks in individual teeth. It also helps to maintain a healthy bite posture, which is better for the jaw and avoids conditions like TMJ. Teeth that are crowded in the mouth may make it more difficult to brush and floss. However, teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean.
Patients with poorly aligned teeth may also experience an increased risk of injury. Teeth that are straight and aligned are less likely to experience breakage or cracking during vigorous or full-contact physical activities. Irregular, misaligned or protruding teeth are more susceptible to tooth injury.
Invisalign offers a clear solution
Invisalign is a wire-free system of tooth straightening that relies on clear trays that are individually shaped to hug the unique outline of each patient’s teeth. Invisalign eliminates problems such as food getting stuck in a patient’s braces, the unappealing look of wire braces, and prevents any slight speech impediment that traditional wire braces may cause. A dentist will analyze the patient’s teeth and then create a series of clear trays that the patient can utilize throughout the course of treatment. Each tray gradually shifts the patient’s teeth so that, over time, they become properly aligned. Invisalign trays are custom-made to fit each individual patient’s needs.
Invisalign transforms smiles
Patients undergoing the Invisalign procedure will notice little to no impact on their day-to-day life. Invisalign trays can be worn comfortably for nearly an entire day, and are easily removed to facilitate cleaning and eating. They do not inflict any of the discomforts traditional braces can be associated with, and there are no wires to maintain, tighten, or occasionally break, which can be both painful and expensive to repair. Invisalign is a superior solution for patients seeking straighter, more aesthetic smiles, but also healthier and more robust oral health.
Many patients are prime candidates for Invisalign
Though they may not be right for every smile, Invisalign trays can be used in the vast majority of cases for corrective orthodontic procedures. As they are custom-made following a strategy of gradual straightening developed by highly qualified dental professionals, they bear outstanding results. Once a full course of Invisalign treatments has been followed, patients are left with beautiful smiles, and more importantly, perfectly aligned teeth.
