Benefits of Invisalign
Dental technology has progressed to the point that it is now possible to correct crooked and improperly spaced teeth with Invisalign. These translucent aligners gradually shift teeth back into the proper positions, enhancing the look of your smile. Let’s take a quick look at the merits of Invisalign.
Invisalign removable aligners are that much more comfortable than regular braces. While conventional braces have rigid edges that will cut and dig into your mouth, Invisalign is comparably soft. Opt for Invisalign and you won’t have to worry about sores developing after cutting and digging as occurs with braces. Furthermore, there is no need to worry about adding wax as is often required with conventional braces. Invisalign’s removable aligners are made specifically for your teeth, featuring smooth edges composed of soft resin that allow for complete comfort.
A Customized Fit
The customized fit provided by Invisalign aligners also proves helpful in that it enhances control in terms of straightening teeth. A dentist, like Dr. Lance Ogata, DDS, provides a set of aligners during treatment that gradually adjusts the teeth in a horizontal manner, a vertical manner, and rotationally to ensure all of the teeth are in their proper positions. Each of these movements is performed in a precise manner to maintain your comfort while ensuring the optimal fit.
An Appealing Aesthetic
The Invisalign system relies on clear plastic aligners that are nearly invisible to the naked eye. You will have the confidence you need to part your lips and put your smile on display when wearing your Invisalign aligners. The aligners do not affect your smile. In fact, no one will have any idea you are wearing such clear aligners unless they are within a few inches of your mouth. This is quite the contrast to conventional braces that are comparably ugly and obtrusive.
Better and Easier Oral Hygiene
Ask anyone who wears braces about the challenge of cleaning their teeth and you will be inundated with complaints. Alternatively, Invisalign aligners can be easily removed when it is time to clean your teeth. You can quickly and easily wash your Invisalign aligners by placing them in warm water. The end result is improved oral health, easier teeth cleaning, and less frustration.
A Meaningful and Timely Impact on Your Smile
Traditional braces often require years to make any sort of positive impact on crooked teeth. Alternatively, Invisalign translucent aligners work their magic in about a year’s time or less. The best part is Invisalign makes a considerable impact on the look of your smile. This is by far the quickest and most effective way to straighten crooked teeth, move teeth back into the proper position and enhance your smile aesthetic. Once your teeth are properly aligned, you will experience less gum inflation and gum sensitivity. Aside from straightening crooked teeth and teeth that are not spaced properly, Invisalign aligners can also remedy dental underbites and overbites.
Fewer Visits to the Dentist’s Office
Regular braces require frequent visits to the orthodontist’s office for ongoing adjustments. Such visits require the removal and replacement of the braces’ brackets, altering the wire size, tightening the brackets, and potentially wiring brackets to one another with additional wire. Why bother returning to the orthodontist’s office over and over, spending hours in the dental chair when Invisalign clear aligners are available? Invisalign aligners require comparably few visits at the office of Dr. Lance Ogata, DDS. Furthermore, these visits are shorter than those required for regular braces.
No Food Restrictions
Teeth straightening solutions typically involve food restrictions. However, this is not the case with Invisalign clear aligners. Opt for Invisalign and you won’t have any food restrictions. You will be free to eat whatever you desire, regardless of whether it is sticky, chewy, hard, etc. Simply remove the Invisalign clear aligner trays when desired and enjoy whatever food you have a hankering for. Clean your teeth, pop the Invisalign aligners back in and you won’t have any worry at all.
A Confidence Boost
Invisalign clear aligners enhance the look of your smile to the point that you enjoy heightened self-confidence. After all, people tend to look at teeth and the surrounding smile when meeting someone new. You should feel 100% confident parting your lips, smiling, and showing off your teeth. Choose Invisalign and your straightened teeth will uplift your confidence and possibly transform your personality as you will finally be confident in your personal aesthetic.
Keep in mind, these invisible aligners are comprised of completely clear resin that fits your specific teeth, meaning people won’t have any idea you are wearing aligners. If you are self-conscious about the look of your teeth, especially while they are straightening, you will feel that much better about how your pearly whites look when using Invisalign.
Controlled and Planned Treatment
Invisalign empowers you to visualize how your teeth will look after treatment. Software is used to make a digital impression of the teeth. The resulting virtual image of the smile aesthetic gives you an idea of what your teeth will look like when the treatment is complete. This is the extensive planning and control every patient deserves.
Faster Results Than Possible with Braces
Conventional braces have the potential to remedy your smile, yet they might take upwards of 18 months or longer to make a meaningful difference. In fact, it might even take two years for braces to make any impact on your smile aesthetic. Alternatively, invisible aligners from Invisalign plan tooth movement in a precise manner, ultimately expediting the process. Give your Invisalign aligners a year or less to make the intended impact and you will be impressed with the results.
