Straightening your smile has the potential to give you more confidence, but there are also a number of other benefits to straightening your teeth with Invisalign. Our Delta Straight Smile dentists explain.
If you need orthodontic treatment to give your straighter teeth, you might be concerned about the look and inconvenience that this might create. Our Delta dentists offer Invisalign as a treatment option to discreetly straighten the teeth of our patients and help provide improved oral health.
Invisalign Aligners Are Difficult To See.
If worry about the look of metal braces, good news! Invisalign aligners are difficult to detect once they are on your teeth because they are made of clear plastic.
If your smile needs to be straightened and you don't want people to be able to tell, then Invisalign might be a good option.
Invisalign Aligners Are Removable.
You can take your aligners out to eat, which means that you don’t have to be too concerned about dietary restrictions. All you have to do is take them out before you eat, and put them back in (after brushing and flossing) once you’re done.
Since your Invisalign clear aligners can be taken out when needed, your oral hygiene routine will remain very simple during your treatment. You can take your aligners out and brush and floss just like you normally do.
And cleaning the aligners themselves is also a fairly simple process. When you take them out, wash them gently with mild, clear soap and a soft toothbrush, and then rinse them off. That’s all there is to it!
Invisalign Aligners Are Made Of Smooth Plastic.
Invisalign clear aligners are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic that can be more comfortable to wear. Since there are no metal wires in your mouth you are unlikely to feel much irritation. That said, you may find they feel a bit tight at first until you get used to them.
Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth
Among the most important reasons to get Invisalign is that straighter teeth are healthier teeth.
Misaligned teeth can cause all sorts of oral health problems. They are more difficult to brush and floss properly because they often have deep crevices that a toothbrush or floss can’t properly access. This can increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Over time, misaligned teeth can also contribute to jaw problems. These include TMJ or TMD, pain in the joints, jaw joint clicking and popping, misaligned jaws, inefficient and painful chewing, or the inability to chew effectively.
In other words, undergoing Invisalign treatment can help improve your overall oral health!
