Invisalign Treatment Broken Down By Our Glendale Cosmetic Dentists

Written by Dr. McKay on Jun 19, 2018

As more and more people are using Invisalign to perfect their smiles, word is spreading—Invisalign is the state-of-the-art cosmetic option that works with your life, not against it.

There are so many advantages to using Invisalign over traditional metal braces. For patients who are candidates, Invisalign can deliver transformative results without causing disruption and discomfort. Our Glendale Invisalign dentists are here to review a few of the key advantages of Invisalign treatment!

  • Appearance
  • Let’s face it, metal brackets and wires tend to stand out on a patient’s smile. For many people, this aesthetic issue is a deterrent to moving forward with cosmetic treatment. Invisalign is the discreet way to improve your dental alignment. Every Invisalign aligner is crafted from clear plastic resin. So, once you put your aligner in place over your teeth, it will practically disappear.

  • Comfort
  • Many people find that metal braces irritate oral tissues, and create small cuts and scrapes on the inside of the patient’s cheeks. Because Invisalign aligners are made from plastic resin, they are smooth and non-abrasive. On the whole, patients report that Invisalign is much more comfortable than traditional orthodontic treatment.

  • Cleanliness
  • While metal brackets and wires tend to accumulate plaque and tartar, Invisalign aligners allow to clean your smile normally throughout the treatment process. Because they’re totally removable, throughout the treatment process, you will be able to brush your teeth, floss your smile, and use mouth rinse as you normally do. You don’t have to put your smile at risk of developing cavities and gum disease in order to achieve your aesthetic goals.

    When you first meet with our Glendale Invisalign dentists, we’ll assess the current state of your smile in order to determine whether you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. We will take a look at the health of your smile, and we’ll talk to you about dental goals, so that we can establish whether Invisalign can help you achieve your dream smile.
