The impact that crooked teeth can have on your smile’s appearance is often enough reason for you to take straightening them seriously. Otherwise, they can have an increasingly negative effect on everything from your bite’s function to the health and integrity of your teeth. However, for many patients, the most immediate concern is how their smile looks, which is why we offer Invisalign® clear aligners at our Newhall, CA, dental office. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners remain virtually unnoticeable throughout the course of your treatment, allowing you to keep your treatment more discreet and convenient.
You don’t want your treatment to be obvious
Invisalign® aligners are made from clear acrylic and designed to conform precisely to your teeth, which makes them almost invisible while in place. Because many patients worry about the impact orthodontic treatment can have on their smiles’ appearance, this high level of discretion is one of the most popular benefits of Invisalign® aligners. If you want to correct the alignment of your teeth but aren’t excited about how brackets and wires could affect your smile, then clear aligners could be your most beneficial option.
You want a solution you can remove
The ability to correct your crooked teeth without making your treatment obvious is only one of the many benefits that Invisalign® offers. For example, because the aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth, they can also be temporarily removed before certain daily activities, like eating. Without braces in the way, you can eat your favorite foods without worrying about particles being stuck in your brackets and wires. You can also remove the aligners before brushing and flossing your teeth for optimal cleaning. By taking the aligners off, you can effectively clean your teeth and gum line without needing additional tools like interdental cleaners.
You’re schedule’s already busy
The convenience that removable aligners bring to your daily routine helps save time throughout the day, but Invisalign® treatment also impacts your overall schedule less than traditional orthodontic treatment. With conventional braces, maintaining the gentle pressure needed to correct your teeth requires frequent visits to your dentist to have arch wires tightened. However, clear aligners utilize their unique, highly customized designs to apply this pressure, continuing your tooth movement as you progress through the series of aligners. While you will still need to attend routine maintenance visits, you won’t have to take as much time out of your schedule to have your braces tightened or adjusted.
