The medical world has changed dramatically over the years, and going to the dentist is nothing now compared to what…
Transform Your Smile With Invisalign® [Clear Aligners]
Invisalign® aligners can be safely used to transform the alignment of your smile without compromising your appearance. Unlike traditional metal braces, it will not distract from the smile with highly visible wires and brackets during the course of your treatment.
Invisalign® aligners are made with a polyurethane plastic and fit tightly on teeth when inserted. They are designed to apply a precise amount of force of the patient's teeth, slowly moving the teeth towards a better alignment.
Unlike traditional metal braces, which are permanently fixed in place by a dentist, Invisalign® aligners can be easily taken out by the wearer. This allows patients to enjoy all their favorite meals without having to worry about an aligner getting in the way. After eating, they simply clean their mouth and reinsert the device.
Reasons to transform your smile with Invisalign®
Invisalign aligners have many other benefits besides being a discreet way to effectively straighten teeth. Some of the more noteworthy reasons to choose Invisalign® over alternatives like braces include the following:
1. Improved oral hygiene
Keeping teeth healthy is a lot easier with Invisalign® since the appliance can be easily removed. Those who go with braces do not have the option of removing their device before meals since it is permanently fixed in place. This leads to food particles and other debris being stuck on the brackets and wires that come with these braces. To make things even worse, these brackets and wires get in the way when it is time to clean the mouth. As a result, the patient has an increased risk of tooth decay.
Who wants to have perfectly straight teeth that have been rotted with decay? Invisalign® users get to straighten the teeth without increasing the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
2. Lots of food options
Traditional braces tend to limit the wearer's food options. For example, it is hard to eat foods such as apples while wearing braces. The wearer usually ends up with lots of food particles embedded in the wires and brackets or may even break off a piece of metal. The time it takes to clean the braces typically negates any enjoyment gotten from the food. Failing to clean food particles of braces leaves the patient vulnerable to decay. Having food particles stuck on braces can also lead to embarrassing moments and bad breath.
3. More comfortable experience
Clear aligners like Invisalign® are a lot more comfortable than conventional braces. The soft plastic the trays are made out of does not irritate the soft tissues in the wearer's mouth like metal wires and brackets can.
4. Protects against grinding
People with bruxism will be pleased to know Invisalign® aligner trays reduce the damage done by the habit. It works similarly to the way a mouthguard does even though that is not its primary design.
