Invisalign is the perfect solution to having straighter teeth. The way Invisalign works is by using a series of plastic aligners to create tooth movement. Every aligner is used for two weeks, and then it is replaced with a new aligner. Moving teeth with removable aligners is not new; however, Invislaign is the most innovative and technically advanced product of our time. They use the most advanced technology in order to push the limits of what Invisalign can do. In the past, Invisalign was only used to fix the most simple cases, but things have dramatically changed. Invisalign can be used to treat almost any patient with occlusal issues.
Invisalign is comfortable, but the best part is that they are removable. This allows the patient to brush and floss their teeth with the same ease as before they started orthodontic treatment, and it allows them to eat anything they choose, without the fear of certain foods getting stuck in their metal braces.
More Than Just Vanity
There is more than one benefit to having straighter teeth. Yes, straight teeth are beautiful, but they are also easier to keep clean. It is harder to clean mal-aligned and crowded teeth. Even the most diligent floss users, cannot manage to maintain their crowded teeth free of plaque. This is a frustration for the dentist as well as the patient. Patient's are at greater risk of periodontal disease and cavities due to the difficulty in Oral hygiene. Straighter teeth are easier to floss and don't require as much time to keep clean.
Teeth that are severely crowded can cause further issues. When teeth are not in their proper position, it can cause problems with your occlusion. Mal-occlusion is not something that should be taken lightly. It can cause your teeth to wear down faster and unevenly, as well as pain in your muscles of mastication and in your jaw joints. The longer you leave your mal-occlusion untreated, the more severe the problems can get, and the harder it is to fix the problem.
