Facts about Invisalign
Invisalign is a revolutionary addition to cosmetic dentistry. These clear aligners are easy to use and can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Made of SmartTrack® material, Invisalign aligners work to gently ease your teeth in place. Below are some advantages that have made Invisalign a sought-after treatment.
One of the biggest factors that hinder people from choosing braces is that metal brackets often stand out. Many may feel shy or self-conscious of their teeth with metal brackets and feel it may attract unwanted attention to them.
Invisalign, however, is virtually invisible. Made of a clear material, it easily blends in with your natural teeth and doesn’t stand out the way conventional braces do, making them an ideal choice for those who want a low-profile treatment.
The aligners are carefully custom-made to suit your needs. Our dentist at Dental Care at Eldersburg Commons will guide you through the process of making your aligners and answer any questions you may have during the Initial appointment.
Many who have used Invisalign have reported great results in the alignment of their teeth. It is a method that has proven efficient and convenient and thus has increased in popularity among those looking for a straight smile.
Conventional metal braces can often trap food in its brackets or hard to reach places in the mouth, resulting in patients having to perform a more careful oral cleaning during treatment. Invisalign is built to be removable, which makes it easier for patients to enjoy certain foods or drinks as they can easily remove the aligners before eating hard candy or drinking coffee. Unlike conventional braces, you can also remove Invisalign aligners on a special occasion or while taking pictures, and even when you do wear the aligners, they are clear, making them less noticeable than metal braces. Just make sure to reinsert the aligners back in place as it can take longer to align teeth if they are constantly being removed.
Treatment time varies from patient to patient depending on the severity of their misalignment. Talk to our dentist to find out how long this process will take in your specific case.
Some types of Braces have come under scrutiny because of the suspected toxins they are said to release. If you are uncomfortable with the possible release of toxins that metal braces could provide, you will have peace of mind in knowing that Invisalign is BPA-free.
The clear and smooth material makes it a comfortable choice. With no metal rubbing against your inner cheeks or lips, the feeling is very different than wearing conventional metal braces.
Invisalign aligners require maintenance just like other braces do. Whenever you take off the aligners, make sure you brush them properly under warm water before putting them on again. This prevents and removes any residual bacteria.
The developments in dentistry have allowed our dentist to establish various solutions to many dental problems, including teeth realignment. Today, there are several dental procedures and treatments that bring their own advantages and disadvantages. Some procedures and treatments have proven so valuable and effective that they have stayed and have been adopted throughout dental practices, such as Invisalign.
