Deciding if Invisalign is right for you comes with many questions. Will Invisalign straighten my teeth? How does Invisalign affect my oral health? Will Invisalign work with my lifestyle? KCC Orthodontics wants to help you take your orthodontic treatment into your own hands and answer some tough questions. There are many advantages to choosing Invisalign. In order to consider if Invisalign is the right treatment plan for you, take into account these benefits.
Invisalign was designed for comfort.
Invisalign is made from a smooth, flexible plastic that fits comfortably over your teeth. There are no rough edges or metal protrusions like traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are made from a 3D scan to fit perfectly over your teeth. Invisalign works by gently moving your teeth into a desirable place over time. You will receive new aligners at each appointment as your teeth move into the proper place.
Invisalign promotes cleanliness and a more “normal” lifestyle.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. This element allows the patient to easily take them out to enjoy their favorite foods and drinks without interrupting normal lifestyle routines. After eating, the patient should rinse out their mouth with water or brush their teeth before putting them back in. Since the aligners can be removed, brushing and flossing can be done in the proper way to promote dental health. The aligners themselves can also be cleaned. Dawn dish soap or denture cleaner is the safest way to clean aligners and won’t damage the plastic.
Invisalign is good for overall oral health.
Straight teeth lead to better oral health. Invisalign works to correct a multitude of issues such as crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth. It can also correct some abnormal bite patterns such as the upper and lower jaw incorrectly aligning. Ignoring oral health issues could lead to developing more serious problems. Gum infections, erosion of tooth enamel, or the loss of teeth is possible if oral health is ignored.
Invisalign offers the wearer flexibility and assurance of a better smile. While it may not be the best fit for all, it is a premier way to fix both cosmetic and more complex cases.
