When you have an uneven smile, this could lead to poor oral health and even cause you to feel uncomfortable with the appearance of your smile. Which is why we may offer clear Invisalign® aligners. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist talks about our cosmetic orthodontic system, and the benefit of clear aligners.
Fixing your misalignment obviously has cosmetic benefits, and this is a very valid reason for seeking treatment. But this could also boost the health and comfort of your smile too! Uneven teeth could provide places for food particles to become trapped, beyond the reach of your toothbrush and floss. Even if you care for your smile properly, the risk of tooth decay and gum disease could remain high. The pressure on your jaw joints and the imbalance in your bite could also lead to uncomfortable disorders like TMD and bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). To avoid these painful complications, we can shift the position of your teeth, and do so without braces!
Creating Invisalign® Aligners
The treatment process is a comfortable one, and that is because the aligners are all custom-made and fitted for your smile. To do this, we will take detailed digital x-rays and images of your smile, which we use to create a 3D computer model. We then design and craft your aligners based on this information. Each set is made from a clear, BPA-free plastic material. You will wear a set for 20 to 22 hours a day, everyday for two weeks. At this point, you will move on to the next set. After about a year for adults, or up to 18 months for teens, this could provide optimal results!
The Benefits of Clear Braces
Clear braces are barely noticeable and only impact your professional appearance the way metal braces could. In addition, you will require fewer office visits, saving you time and money. The aligners can also be removed before each meal, so you don’t have to avoid foods or alter your diet. Being removable also means brushing and flossing is easier too. You are less likely to develop tooth decay, gingivitis, or teeth stains during your treatment.
