Four Benefits Of Invisalign Braces

Dentist Blog

Orthodontic treatment can be used to straighten crooked teeth and realign an overbite or underbite. Braces are a common orthodontic treatment, but some people dislike the idea of braces for cosmetic or practical reasons. Fortunately, you can straighten your teeth using clear aligners instead. Clear aligners are sometimes known by the name Invisalign. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from Invisalign braces.

1. Straight Teeth With No Unwanted Gaps

Some people have gaps between their teeth. Some with this condition feel self-conscious about their smiles. Food can get caught in spaces between your teeth, making you more prone to developing cavities. Fortunately, clear aligners can gradually and safely close spaces between your teeth. You'll be given a series of retainers that are custom-made to fit your mouth. Each set of retainers will be a slightly different shape to encourage your teeth to move. Over time, these clear aligners will shift your teeth into an ideal position.

2. Removable Orthodontic Devices

Invisalign retainers can be removed at will, unlike braces, which are glued to a patient's teeth. You'll be able to take off your clear aligners to enjoy your favorite meals and clean your teeth. You can even remove your clear aligners to take photos for special events. It's important to wear your Invisalign braces as much as possible to ensure a quick, effective treatment. Still, many patients find the removable nature of their retainers to be a great benefit.

3. Discreet Treatment

It's common for people to get braces in adolescence. However, some people seek orthodontic treatment in adulthood instead. Adults may be particularly averse to the idea of wearing traditional metal braces, which are often associated with teenagers. Clear aligners provide a discreet alternative. Invisalign braces are made from a clear plastic that can go unnoticed in day-to-day life. Many people may not even realize that you're undergoing orthodontic treatment.

4. Ongoing Orthodontic Care

Clear aligners will make your orthodontist visits quick and easy. Your dentist won't need to manually tighten your braces. Instead, they will simply give you the next set of aligners according to your treatment plan. However, your dentist will still provide you with ongoing orthodontic care. You'll see your orthodontist for regular checkups. During these appointments, your dentist will ensure that your treatment is progressing according to plan. Your orthodontist may make adjustments to your treatment plan, depending on how quickly your teeth respond to each new set of clear aligners.

I want to help others who are also thinking about dentures and you can learn a lot about them when you read my blog.
