Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth using custom-made aligner trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. The aligners are virtually invisible, made from a plastic material known as Smart Track, and strong enough to exact painless pressure on your teeth for better alignment. Before you get Invisalign, you need to consult Sean Sutton DDS. This treatment corrects dental disorders such as crooked, gapped, uneven, crowded teeth and overbite or underbite. Invisalign has become famous worldwide due to the following benefits.
Improves dental hygiene
Invisalign allows you to remove your aligners and carry out regular dental cleaning. You can brush and floss your teeth without any special equipment. Unlike other traditional methods like braces, you can clean all the parts of your aligners to ensure no food or bacteria build-up. Always clean the aligners regularly and thoroughly, as bacteria growth can cause tooth decay or gum diseases.
Boosts your confidence
Your smile is the first impression you make when you meet people. You will most probably straighten your teeth for aesthetic value. Straightening your teeth boosts your confidence and self-esteem when smiling or talking to people. The aligners are prepared from transparent resin, making them nearly invisible and fit perfectly on your teeth so people can hardly notice improving your confidence when wearing them.
Invisalign does not limit what you eat or drink.
Invisalign allows you to eat any food and drink. Other traditional methods limit what you take because some food types can bend wires or snap off braces as you eat. The aligners are removable, so you do not limit yourself to some foods. Coldwater is the only thing you can take with your aligners on. Always take them off before eating other foods to prevent bacteria build-up. Avoid sugary foods and drinks to prevent tooth decay.
Invisalign enhances your comfort
Removable aligners are comfortable compared to traditional braces. Your dentist designs the aligners to fit your teeth perfectly. The removable aligners have smooth edges, so you will not have cuts or scarring on your lips and cheeks. Your specialist will give you different sets of aligners that slowly and comfortably adjust horizontally, vertically, and rotationally until they are flawlessly aligned.
Fix various dental problems
Invisalign corrects widely spaced teeth which can lead to gum diseases. You can restore crooked teeth, which can cause bad breath and lower your self-confidence. Fixing an overbite or underbite ensures you can properly chew food, promoting effective digestion. Aligning your teeth will generally prevent gum infections, tooth sensitivity, jaw aches, speech difficulties, and teeth chipping.
Short treatment period
You will take a shorter period to get your teeth straight with Invisalign than other traditional techniques. Most traditional methods take more than sixteen months, while Invisalign takes a maximum of one year. You must wear your aligners at least twenty-two hours a day for maximum outcome. If you do not wear your aligners correctly, it can take more time.
You must take care of your aligners and wear them appropriately for fast and effective results. Schedule an appointment at Greenwich Dentistry to get Invisalign.
