If your teeth are crooked or make chewing difficult because of overcrowding or an overbite, ask your dentist about Invisalign. It is a revolutionary way of correcting the alignment of your teeth.
The Invisalign device is a removable device that functions like metal braces – but without the embarrassment of wearing metal braces. The Invisalign brace is clear and virtually undetectable.
Of course, Invisalign can straighten your teeth and improve your smile, but it can also improve your oral health, too. The American Dental Association recommends straightening misaligned teeth because the condition can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
The benefits of Invisalign are definitely more than meets the eye. The three main benefits include:
1. Correcting Dental Problems
Invisalign corrects crooked or crowded teeth. Teeth that are crooked or crowded are hard to clean, which can lead to the development of cavities and gum infections and disease.
Invisalign also corrects an overbite or underbite, which, if not fixed, can lead to difficulties in speaking and eating.
Teeth that are straight and aligned allow the gums to fit firmly around the teeth, creating a strong defense against bacteria and infection. Every day, your mouth battles it out with bacteria. Having crooked or crowded teeth may make your mouth vulnerable to decay and infection, creating an opportunity for the harmful bacteria to win.
2. Creating Beautiful Smiles
A bright smile is an eye-catching feature for men and women. Simply stated, straight teeth create a beautiful smile. It can easily mean the difference between whether others find you attractive or not. In addition, a beautiful smile is a signifier of good overall health and vitality.
3. A More Comfortable Way to Correct Oral Issues
Invisalign uses 3D technology for a customized fit and precisely targeted correction of your alignment issues.
Because the device is removable, you can brush and floss as you normally would throughout the process.
Since Invisalign does not involve the use of wiring brackets, you need not worry about food getting stuck there; simply remove the device while eating.
While metal braces hurt initially, Invisalign promises no pain. There are some restrictions with metal braces such as playing contact sports. The wiring and brackets can dig into the inside of your mouth and cause wounding. With Invisalign, you can take it out before engaging in sports and put it back in afterward.
Invisalign is a low-maintenance option that requires fewer visits to the dentist for cleanings and checkups. Overall, Invisalign is a far more comfortable option for correcting a wide range of oral issues.
