When you want to straighten your smile, but worry about what wearing traditional orthodontic braces might mean for its appearance, we may recommend more discreet orthodontics with Invisalign® clear aligners. The advantages of using nearly invisible aligners to correct your tooth misalignment are many, and the following are just a few of the things you can look forward to with Invisalign® treatment.
Smiling confidently before you finish treatment
Straightening crooked teeth does a great deal for improving your smile’s overall appearance, but when traditional orthodontic braces are bonded to your teeth, that appearance can be affected even further. While improving the alignment of your teeth is important to your oral health, your confidence in your smile can also be a significant factor. With Invisalign® clear aligners, your treatment is completed through a series of nearly invisible aligners instead of brackets and wires. The aligners are not only made from clear acrylic, but also designed specifically to the unique measurements of your teeth.
Keeping your daily routines simple
Its appearance isn’t the only thing that makes Invisalign® treatment different from traditional orthodontics. The nature of clear aligners is to be removable; progressing through treatment means periodically changing your aligners for the next in the series. This makes the treatment process much more convenient and comfortable, and also makes maintaining your daily hygiene routine much simpler. For instance, you won’t need to brush, floss, or clean around brackets and wires. You can temporarily remove your aligners first, then clean your teeth as conveniently as you did before your treatment began.
Enjoying a healthier smile for life
By itself, the process of straightening your crooked teeth vastly improves your oral health and reduces your risks of experiencing other concerns in the future. However, the advantages that Invisalign® provides for your daily hygiene and oral health can enhance those benefits even further. In addition to improving your smile’s appearance and your bite function by straightening your misaligned teeth, clear aligners help you more successfully avoid the development of chronic conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease that can arise from excess plaque and tartar buildup. By the end of your treatment, you can have an even healthier smile thanks to the convenience of clear aligners.
