Why Invisalign Is Right for You!

Braces are excellent dental appliances that straighten your teeth for both health and aesthetic purposes. Every year, countless children and adults visit their dentists for check-ups and to explore their healthcare needs. While many people could benefit from wearing braces, most are discouraged by the countless restrictions and overall social stigma associated with fixed dental braces.

Fortunately, advancements in dental technology have led to revolutionary orthodontic treatment options like Invisalign®. As the brand name implies, Invisalign® aligners are a clear, removable, and metal-free alternative to dental braces. But is Invisalign® right for you?

Invisalign® treats the following conditions:

  • Crowding
  • Overbites
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites
  • Teeth gaps
  • Excessive overjet

The most important benefit of Invisalign® is that it can help you maintain optimal oral health. Not only do these aligners treat harmful oral conditions, they also prevent possible medical complications just by properly aligning your teeth. As a patient proceeds through this treatment process, they often find it easier to brush and floss their teeth. This reduces the likelihood of developing cavities and periodontal disease. Plus, by straightening your teeth, you can even improve how you speak, drink, and eat!

Unlike other oral alignment options, Invisalign® is:

  • Comparatively painless
  • Nearly invisible
  • Easy to clean
  • Extremely effective

While Invisalign® aligners aren’t completely invisible, they are made of a clear plastic that is incredibly difficult to see. The length of a treatment plan depends entirely upon a patient’s oral condition. At Aesthetic Smile Design, we can gradually adjust your teeth by using sequential sets of aligner trays that are changed out every two weeks. There may be an initial period of discomfort as your teeth adapt to the increased and sudden pressure, but the overall process is painless.

One significant benefit that Invisalign® patients enjoy is the fact that these aligners are removable. For this treatment process to be effective, it’s true that you need to wear them for about 20-22 hours a day. However, you can take them off for meals, cleaning and maintenance, important dates, and the rare special occasion. Unlike standard metal braces, you don’t need to worry about what you eat or drink because the aligners are removable.
