There are a lot of options out there for straightening your teeth, but none offers the level of comfort, convenience and confidence that you’ll find with Invisalign®. Invisalign has a significant positive impact on a person looks and feel about themselves.
Invisalign Straightens your teeth and effectively treats a wide variety of cases, including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite. Invisalign treatment allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start and you will be able to see how straight your teeth will look when the treatment is complete.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment varies between 18 and 30 months, but both vary from case to case.
Invisalign aligner trays are made of smooth comfortable plastic and do not irritate cheeks and gums. The trays are also removable, making it possible for you to eat whatever foods you enjoy while you are undergoing treatment. Better periodontal health can be maintained by brushing and flossing normally as the trays are removable.
It’s convenient and ideal for a busy schedule as fewer doctor visits are required (every 4-6 weeks). They are more comfortable than traditional braces. There is no metal or wires and less time has to be spent at the dental office getting adjustments.
You can take out the aligners for special occasions and pop them back in whenever you are ready. The aligners are virtually invisible and most people won’t even notice that you are under treatment even when you are wearing them.
Easier cleaning- One of the problems with conventional braces is that food gets trapped in between brackets resulting in plaque buildup. This can result in tooth decay. Removable Invisalign aligners help in easy brushing and flossing
Health benefits of straight teeth- Invisalign not only provides a beautiful smile, it also provides healthy gums and teeth. Spacing and crowding can result in red , swollen gums which are also signs of periodontal disease. Properly aligned teeth help secure the gums more firmly against the teeth and provide a strong and healthy defense against potential periodontal problems.
Over all health- Tooth decay and gum disease caused by bacteria if left untreated, can cause mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath and possible tooth loss. Studies by American Dental Association have shown oral infections leading to systemic diseases like heart disease, stroke, pneumonia and diabetes. Invisalign aligners reduce the risk of these problems and make oral hygiene easier. Correctly aligned teeth alleviate issues caused by improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems and increased wear the tooth enamel. Invisalign addresses all these orthodontic problems and gives you a great confident smile and improves oral health.
