At Marcial Dental PC, Invisalign is an orthodontic appliance custom-made to fit your smile precisely. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is removable and allows you to eat all your favorite foods during treatment. They are the preferred choice for many adult patients because they can straighten their teeth without altering their daily routines. They are also quite comfortable compared to traditional metal braces. The aligners are made of smooth BPA-free plastic worn over the teeth to shift them into place gradually. Patients can easily remove their aligners to eat, drink and clean their teeth. Every two weeks, they will swap out their traditional aligner for a new set that will continue to adjust the position of their teeth until they are properly aligned.
What Issues Does Invisalign Fix?
Invisalign can alleviate crowding, which occurs when the jaw has insufficient space for the teeth to align properly. By gradually shifting the teeth into ideal positions, Invisalign can create room and reduce crowding.
Invisalign can close gaps and spaces between teeth. Whether small gaps or more significant spaces, the aligners can help move the teeth closer together, resulting in a more even and aligned smile.
A crossbite is a condition where some upper teeth are positioned inside the lower teeth when biting down. Invisalign can correct crossbites by guiding the teeth into the correct alignment to achieve an optimal bite.
An open bite is characterized by the upper and lower front teeth not meeting when the mouth is closed. Invisalign can address mild to moderate open bites by moving the teeth and closing the gap between the upper and lower teeth.
The Benefits of Invisalign
One of the most significant advantages of Invisalign is its nearly invisible appearance. The aligners are made from clear, transparent material, making them much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. This feature particularly appeals to individuals who prefer a more discreet orthodontic treatment. Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to take them out when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This flexibility makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene throughout your treatment. You can also remove the aligners for special occasions or important events. Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth. They are made from smooth, comfortable material, which reduces the likelihood of irritation or discomfort often associated with traditional braces. There are no wires or brackets to cause friction or poke the soft tissues of your mouth. With Invisalign, you can maintain your regular oral hygiene routine. Since the aligners are removable, you can easily brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. This helps to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout the treatment process.
