Almost every individual desires to have straight, well-aligned teeth and an attractive smile. However, it is not a blessing that everyone naturally has. Many people have crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth that they wanted to align discreetly. Thanks to modern dentistry, many treatments are now available to straighten your teeth so that you can flaunt the smile that you always desire. At Flex Dental, we offer an advanced option of Invisalign for you to realign your teeth and provide a straighter and beautiful smile.
Straightening teeth using braces is not a new treatment. Traditional orthodontics provides a viable solution for achieving straight teeth, but the thought of wearing metal braces can be daunting for many. This is where Invisalign comes to the rescue, offering unique, clear aligners that are both effective and unnoticeable while straightening teeth without the appearance of metal. People can now achieve straighter teeth and an attractive smile with this clear braces solution now.
Invisalign aligners are custom-made trays that work to straighten your teeth and improve oral function. With a series of Invisalign aligners, the teeth are moved gently and gradually to their desired position. It is recommended to wear each set on the teeth at least 22 hours a day. They are changed to the next in the custom series every 1 – 2 weeks to keep the teeth moving steadily.
Invisalign can fix issues like gapped teeth, crooked teeth, overcrowding of teeth, underbite, overbite, crossbite, and open bite.
Here are five reasons patients choose Invisalign clear aligners.
When compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable to wear. As it is custom-made according to your teeth with a smooth plastic material, it offers a fit that feels natural yet secure. Invisalign eliminates the challenges of metal brackets and wires, trapped food, and lip, cheek, and other soft tissue irritation within the mouth.
Since Invisalign aligners are made of a transparent material, they are far less visible than traditional metal braces.
Since Invisalign aligners can be removed before eating and drinking, there is no collecting of food debris and plaque, unlike traditional metal braces. It is necessary to brush and floss the teeth after eating and before putting the Invisalign aligners back. This is to prevent plaque and food particles from getting trapped between the teeth and the aligner material.
In many cases, treatment with Invisalign requires less time than traditional braces. For most patients, treatment with Invisalign takes 12 – 18 months on average or as little as six months in some cases.
Straighter teeth make it easier to brush and floss properly, reducing the chance of tooth decay and gum disease. Since the patients can remove Invisalign clear aligners from the mouth, the teeth and gums can receive better home care than the traditional braces that involve brushing and flossing around bulky brackets and wires. Choosing Invisalign can also minimize some risks that accompany traditional braces, including the increased chances of tooth decay and gum disease from plaque accumulation around the orthodontic hardware.
