Do you have crooked teeth but don’t want the hassle of getting braces? Then you should think about getting Invisalign! But what are the benefits of Invisalign? To achieve a more beautiful smile, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move your teeth gradually. You wear a set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. The average Invisalign treatment time is about a year. As you switch out each set of aligners with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they reach the position the doctor has prescribed for you.
1. More Comfortable
Since Invisalign is practically invisible, there is no unwarranted attention to your mouth. Very few people will notice at all unless you mention it to them. They’re more comfortable to wear than braces and remove easily when eating, brushing, and flossing. Invisalign is a proven technology customized to give you a smile you’ve always wanted, without the pain and anxiety associated with metal braces.
2. Better Dental Hygiene
Using removable aligners from Invisalign allows you to take better care of your teeth. When you have braces, you cannot reach particular crevices in your mouth where food can get trapped since there is metal wiring on your teeth. However, since you can remove Invisalign easily out of your mouth, you can get to all those hard-to-reach places when you brush and floss your teeth.
3. Fix & Prevent Dental Issues
Did you know that Invisalign can improve multiple dental issues? Straightening your teeth with removable aligners can also reduce gum inflammation, tooth sensitivity, bad breath, and even chipping of teeth. If you want to get your teeth looked at, call California Dental Care to schedule an appointment!
4. No Braces or Invasive Scanning
Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners have no metal bands or wires to irritate your mouth. You also don’t have to sit through any uncomfortable and invasive scanning’s or impressions. Since Invisalign is removable, you can easily take the clear aligners out for special events or if you’re going to indulge in a delicious snack.
5. Boosts Self Confidence
Do you have crooked teeth that you try to hide at work, school, or with friends? Are you afraid to show off your smile in public? Don’t worry, Invisalign is here to help! Since Invisalign is clear and almost invisible, most people will never even know you’re straightening your teeth. Boost your self-confidence when you get Invisalign from California Dental Care!
6. Fewer Dental Visits
You will have to frequent the dentist to get your braces tightened regularly or brackets adjusted when you have traditional braces. However, with Invisalign, you will see the dentist less frequently and have less invasive visits.
7. Eat Whatever You Want
One main benefit of Invisalign is the fact that you are still able to eat whatever you want. When you have braces put on, you can only eat limited foods, or else they will get caught and stuck in your braces. Since Invisalign is easily removable, you can still enjoy all of the foods and drinks you love!
8. Shorter Treatment Period
An average Invisalign treatment takes about a year. At regular intervals, you’ll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by the doctor for your course of treatment.
