How Can Invisalign Improve Your Smile Health?

Health Benefits:

  • Healthy Teeth and GumsWhen teeth are properly aligned, your gums fit more securely around your teeth. This allows for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems.
  • Easy CleaningWith traditional orthodontic braces, it is difficult to keep your teeth clean.  Food can easily get trapped underneath the brackets and wires.  Since Invisalign aligners are removable, it’s easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth regularly.
  • Overall HealthStudies have shown a strong link between tooth decay and gum disease and a patient’s risk of developing other more serious ailments such as heart disease, stroke, pneumonia and diabetes.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

asdfWant to improve your smile alignment?  Invisalign is a great way to cosmetically align your teeth!  If you’re not sure if Invisalign is the right choice for you, we encourage you to learn more about how Invisalign differs from other orthodontic options like traditional metal or clear braces.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces:

  • Appearance – Traditional braces are comprised of metallic colored brackets attached to each individual tooth.  Similarly, clear braces use the bracket structure, but are designed to match the color of your teeth.  Invisalign aligners differ in that they are made of a clear plastic that is designed to look invisible on the surface of your teeth.  There are no brackets involved, only a clear tray that fits over your smile.
  • Flexibility – Invisalign aligners can be removed during meals and for cleaning.  On the other hand, traditional braces are permanently in place during your treatment.
  • Habits – With traditional braces, patients need to alter their eating and oral health care habits for their new braces.  Since Invisalign is removable, there is no need to alter your habits.
  • Alignment – Invisalign is used to cosmetically improve tooth alignment.  Traditional braces are often a better choice for patients with severe bite and misalignment issues.

Improving your tooth alignment can have a positive effect on your confidence and oral health, but many adults and teens feel uncomfortable committing to traditional orthodontic braces. Fortunately, Invisalign is a convenient cosmetic alternative. These clear aligners provide patients with a comfortable way to realign teeth and improve mild to moderate alignment problems.

Benefits of Choosing Invisalign:

  • The clear plastic aligners are comfortable during your treatment.
  • They do not stain or damage the enamel.
  • They are virtually invisible in photographs and in person.
  • The aligners can be removed during meals and while brushing or flossing.
  • They are just as effective as traditional braces.

Invisalign aligners are custom made to move your teeth into the correct position. They are clear, discreet, and comfortable. Each aligner is created to gradually adjust your teeth into a more aligned position. During treatment, patients can easily remove their aligners for meals and oral care.

Although not every problem can be treated with Invisalign, it is an ideal orthodontic solution for patients with mild or moderate spacing, alignment and bite problems. We encourage you to contact Perfect Smile Maker to determine if Invisalign is the right orthodontic solution for your tooth alignment needs. Call 516-482-2215 to schedule your consultation.
