The Benefits Of Invisalign Are Clear
The good news is that Invisalign helps you achieve the same smile goals that classic metal braces would have delivered. The even better news is that it goes about it in a much more pleasant manner.
First of all, Invisalign eliminates the need for attention-drawing metal brackets and wires that used to be an essential component of the teeth-straightening process.
Instead of putting you through all that, this technique makes the transformation happen through a series of clear plastic aligner trays.
Your custom-built aligners are switched out by you at home every two weeks until treatment is completed, in only about 12 months. No awkward in-office adjustments lay in store for you. And no waiting 2-3 years for the magic to happen.
Moreover, your aligners won’t be detected by any outsiders and they are far more comfortable to wear than the old-style metal braces.
Since they aren’t attached to your mouth, you can pop them out whenever it makes sense for you to do so. That makes dinners more enjoyable. And cleaning your equipment will be a breeze. Plus, no dietary restrictions or weird tools will be part of the plan.
Invisalign is a great way for busy adults to improve their smile. But it won’t just make you look better! Invisalign also boosts your oral health by eliminating some serious obstacles.
A Bad Bite
If you have an overbite, that will take away from the appearance of your smile. But worse than that, it can place additional stress on your teeth and lead to worn-down or cracked teeth that will need to be repaired.
Invisalign addresses your bite issues thereby doing away with the need for cosmetic treatments later.
Crowded teeth aren’t good for your overall look, but they pose more than a purely cosmetic problem. This can actually increase your chances for gingivitis and full-blown periodontal disease.
That’s because teeth that are that close together are difficult to keep clean. Bacteria is better able to hide from your brush and floss.
Plus, plaque can build up and cause inflammation and infection once it slips below the gumline. Tooth loss and other health issues can follow.
Fortunately, Invisalign can repair your crowded condition.
If your teeth are gapped it can affect your speech. And your individual teeth will not be protected by the surrounding teeth. This increases the risk of your tooth loss and more. You can close the gaps with Invisalign and save your smile!
