Crooked teeth? Not happy with your smile due to spacing or maybe a bite that’s a little off? Invisalign is your solution. Not only will it boost your confidence but it will improve your overall health! In this blog we will explain everything you need to know about Invisalign!
How does invisalign work?
Once we take impressions, custom-made clear aligners are created for you and only you.
Aligners are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth! No metal brackets or wire tightening. You simply pop in a new tray every 2 weeks, until treatment is complete and you’ll achieve that confident smile you’ve always wanted!
Will invisalign work for me?
Everyone’s case is different. If you have teeth crowding, teeth spacing, an overbite (protruding upper teeth), an under bite (protruding lower teeth), a deep bite (upper front teeth hide lower teeth) or an open bite (back teeth are together but space is present between the front teeth) then invisalign could work for you! Invisalign is very effective and has a 96% patient satisfaction.
The best part about invisalign?
Although, cosmetics are very important! Invisalign, also has awesome benefits for healthier gums due to straighter teeth! Properly positioned teeth are easier to brush and floss. Aligned teeth can help gums fit more tightly around them, which may lead to better periodontal health. They are easily removed for eating, so your menu items are not limited (traditional braces give you some limitations). You can still eat all the healthy foods that you want. Also, properly aligned teeth can be less stressful on the supporting bone jaw joints, decreasing risk of abnormal wear on teeth! Pretty awesome!
