It used to be that in order to achieve perfect dental alignment, patients had to use metal brackets and wires and wait several months to see results. Understandably, these conditions kept many people, especially adults, from undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Now, however, our Glendale cosmetic dentists treat smiles using Invisalign. Here are just 3 key reasons to choose Invisalign.
Many people of all ages choose Invisalign because it allows them to perfect their smiles without drawing attention to the treatment process. Invisalign aligners are completely clear, so even when your aligners in place, your teeth will show through when you smile. If you have a special event coming up, or you are regularly in front of a crown for work or school, these aligners won’t disrupt your life.
Oral Health Advantages
A common complaint among people who wear traditional braces is that food particles and plaque can build up around the metal brackets that are bonded to your dental enamel. Metal wires can also collect dental debris over time.
On the other hand, Invisalign aligners are removable. You will be able to take your aligners out of your mouth and brush, floss, and rinse your mouth normally. It is also easy to clean the aligners themselves; you simply gently brush the mouth piece with a specially formulated cleanser to clear away bacteria.
With traditional braces, you don’t really get to enjoy the aesthetic changes to your smile until the treatment process is complete, and your dentist removes the brackets and wires from your teeth. Invisalign moves teeth incrementally, always with clear plastic aligners. You will notice that your smile looks straighter and more seamless after just a few months; you get to enjoy your perfect your dental alignment.
As you can see, there are a number of compelling reasons to choose Invisalign over convention orthodontic options. Give our Glendale Invisalign dentists a call to learn more!
