Most people choose to have adult orthodontics because they are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth and wish to benefit from having a straighter, more evenly balanced, and attractive smile. Invisalign treatment provides some distinct benefits listed below.
Traditionally dental treatment means trusting your dentist to provide the results you desire, which can be unsettling when embarking on a treatment that may take a year or more to complete.
With Invisalign, you can preview the predicted treatment results before even beginning. We provide digital images created using Invisalign’s software to show how your teeth will look once straightened.
These images are based on your photographs and diagnostic tests. It’s the perfect way to assess Invisalign’s potential benefits and become more involved with the entire process.
Invisalign is an adult-oriented orthodontics system, and most people prefer this treatment because it is discreet. The aligners are made from clear plastic and are quite thin, so once in the mouth, they are virtually invisible.
Because the system is so easy to use, it fits in easily with the busiest lifestyle. There is no need to disappear for ages to clean around fiddly brackets and wires after every meal or worry about food visibly trapped in your braces.
The aligners are made from smooth plastic with no sharp edges or other parts that can dig into cheeks, lips, and gums, ensuring treatment is more comfortable compared with traditional braces.
You can easily remove the aligners whenever you want to brush or floss your teeth, and there is no need to use different tools to clean your teeth thoroughly.
Oral care with removable braces is far faster than with fixed braces, which can be time-consuming to clean thoroughly.
You need to clean the aligner trays, but these are easily brushed with a toothbrush or cleaned using Invisalign’s proprietary cleaning agents.
Orthodontic checkups during Invisalign treatment are quick because there are no parts to adjust. Also, there are no parts that can come loose or break.
The checkups are simply an opportunity to ensure your treatment is working as predicted and make sure you are satisfied with the progress.
Best dental experience ever. Professional and very clean office. Everyone from the receptionist to the hygienist to the dentist are amazing. So friendly and patient. You can even watch TV while getting work done on your teeth!
Usually, people expect to change their diet quite substantially during orthodontic treatment.
Fixed braces make it impossible to eat certain foods comfortably without risking breaking a wire or bracket or food becoming trapped around teeth. Invisalign has no such concerns because you remove the aligners before meals.
You can enjoy whatever you wish with complete confidence that it will not harm your orthodontic treatment.
Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean, so if you struggle to brush and floss your teeth thoroughly, you will notice a significant difference when your teeth are straighter and properly aligned. When you can look after your teeth properly, it can reduce the risk of dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease.
In addition to the benefits listed above, the Invisalign treatment can help you in other ways, improving your dental health generally, which can be very valuable.
