The benefits of straight teeth extend far beyond a beautiful smile. Dentists explain that straightening your teeth will not only make you attractive but it will also contribute to a better overall dental health. Properly aligned teeth will result in healthier teeth and gums as they fit more securely around the teeth offering the strongest and healthiest defense against common teeth problems. Properly aligned teeth are also easier to brush and floss and thus, you are less likely to have tooth decay, gum disease, bleeding gums, bad breath and mouth sores if your teeth are straightened. Thankfully, if your teeth are not properly aligned, you can use Invisalign to get them straightened.
While there are other treatment methods you can use to get your teeth properly aligned, Invisalign treatment is widely preferred as it offers comfort and convenience. Invisalign lets you straighten your teeth without worrying about the mouth and gum irritation that comes with other teeth straightening remedies. In addition to being comfortable and smooth to wear, the Invisalign aligner trays are also removable, which means that you can enjoy your life normally from flossing to brushing and eating whatever you want. While their invisibility means that most people will not notice them, you can remove them when attending a special occasion and wear them after the occasion.
The low cost Invisalign treatment also requires fewer doctor visits of about once every six weeks and thus, it is ideal for busy people. Furthermore, with more than 700 patents and over 20 years of clinical data, you can be sure that the treatment works as intended. The aligners can also be customized to fit the needs of individual patients ranging from teens to adults. Living with Invisalign aligners is also effortless enabling you to wear them the recommended 20 to 22 hours in a day with ease. Since they are removable, they are easy to clean enabling you to maintain good oral hygiene.
The aligners work by shifting your teeth slightly moving them vertically or horizontally or as needed to solve your teeth alignment problems. Over the years, Invisalign treatment has been clinically proven to be effective for a broad range of conditions ranging from complex to mild. Some of the common teeth conditions that can be treated by Invisalign include gapped teeth, underbite, overbite, open bite, crossbite, and overly crowded teeth. Furthermore, despite being effective and easy to use, Invisalign is also one of the affordable teeth straightening treatments.
Since Invisalign treatment is important for your dental health and smile, it is important that you choose a qualified, experienced doctor. The doctor will use a scanner to create images of your teeth to help design custom aligners.
