The Invisalign Advantage

Life with Invisalign: In Love with Your Own Smile
Thanks to advancements in orthodontic dentistry Invisalign has emerged as a great alternative to traditional metal braces. Also, because Invisalign consists of invisible aligners it enables patients to undergo the process of aligning their crooked teeth all within a discrete manner. To gain a better understanding of why so many are opting for Invisalign let’s explore the benefits discussed below:

Is Invisalign Right for You?
Realistically only your dentist or your orthodontist can provide you with a full examination and then advice on whether or not traditional metal braces or Invisalign is right for you. However, to conduct your own assessment of whether or not Invisalign is right for you focus on the benefits of it below:

Gaps – Gaps refer to any excess space in between your teeth

Overbite – Where the upper tooth bite over the lower tooth

Crossbite – Refer to when the teeth are misaligned laterally 

Crowding – This is when teeth are not spaced far enough apart

Underbite – The lower teeth protrude out across the top tooth

Invisalign versus Traditional Braces
So many people love Invisalign because it does everything that traditional braces do. Meaning providing a constant but gentle pressure on your teeth so that they slowly align into their optimal position. Also, unlike with traditional braces Invisalign more conveniently gives you the option of being able to remove the aligner trays every fourteen days. Not to mention you can remove your aligners with ease so if you wanted to eat something that might stain them it’s a quick process to pop them in or out of your mouth. 

Invisalign Treatment Plan Timeframe
Also, on average a patient can receive concrete results and treatment completion in a year, but some treatments can be completed sooner depending on the patient’s condition. While all of these benefits are great the number one benefit that people love about Invisalign is that it goes on clear making it discrete and difficult for anyone to notice. This helps assure a patient who is already self-conscious about their teeth avoid drawing unwanted attention like they would with traditional braces.

Schedule A Consultation
If you are interested in pursuing Invisalign treatment then it would be beneficial if you scheduled a consultation with your dentist or orthodontist. Doing this would allow you to determine if Invisalign is right for you.  Also, it will allow you to get all of your questions about Invisalign answered in person.
