If you’ve been thinking about improving your smile with orthodontic treatment, our Glendale Invisalign dentists are here with some helpful information about how this treatment works. Keep reading to get a better idea of whether or not Invisalign is right for you.
Invisalign is an exciting treatment option because it provides a metal-free way to improve dental alignment. While traditional braces require metal brackets and wires to reposition teeth, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to apply consistent pressure to teeth. Throughout the treatment process, you’ll wear a series of aligners—each one is designed to move your teeth a little more.
Invisalign can help you achieve a number of aesthetic and structural dental goals:
- Close gaps between your teeth in order to achieve a more seamless smile
- Straighten crooked or crowded teeth so that your smile is more perfected, and it is easier to clean between your teeth
- Correct misaligned bites—underbites, overbites, crossbites. This not only improves aesthetics; it also minimizes your risk of developing uneven dental wear and tear and damage.
- Widen your smile so that it fills more of the space in your mouth when you smile.
People choose to use Invisalign over traditional orthodontics for a number of reasons. First of all, this treatment is quite discreet; you don’t have to mar your smile with metal in order to improve your dental alignment. Additionally, because Invisalign aligners are removable, you’ll find it’s simple to keep your mouth clean throughout the treatment process. Smooth Invisalign aligners are also less abrasive and uncomfortable than metal brackets and wires.
