Benefits of Invisalign
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a treatment that allows you to have straight teeth without the look of metal braces. It resembles a clear plastic retainer and works like invisible braces. The best part is that you can remove it anytime you want - to eat, brush, floss or go somewhere. Our dentist will tell you exactly how long you must keep them on every day after assessing the structure and shape of your teeth. Invisalign can give visible results in just about six weeks but the duration can vary depending on how much work your teeth need.
How Does It Work?
Invisalign is a treatment involving a series of plastic shells that tightly fit around your teeth. It is clear and transparent and highly customized for you.
Facts about Invisalign
Here are some interesting facts about Invisalign:
One of the biggest factors that deter people from choosing braces is that metal brackets often stand out. Many may feel shy or self-conscious of their teeth with metal brackets and feel it may attract unwanted attention to them. Invisalign, however, is virtually invisible. Made of a clear material, it easily blends in with your natural teeth and doesn’t stand out the way conventional braces do, making them an ideal choice for those who want a low-profile treatment.
The aligners are carefully custom-made to fit your needs. Our dentist at Dental Care of Bixby will guide you through the process of making your aligners and answer any questions you may have during the Initial consultation.
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign braces are easy to clean. You can remove Invisalign braces and brush them whenever you wish. This helps maintain your oral hygiene. You can clean them by inserting them in lukewarm water so that it clears any residual bacteria.
Traditional metal braces are not detachable during the course of the treatment. You cannot remove them without our dentist’s assistance. On the other hand, Invisalign aligners can be removed whenever you choose. Having the option to remove them is convenient.
The clear and smooth material makes it a comfortable choice. With no metal rubbing against your inner cheeks or lips, the feeling is very different than wearing conventional metal braces.
Duration of Treatment
Treatment time varies from patient-to-patient depending on the severity of their misalignment. Talk to our dentist to find out how long this process will take in your specific case.
No Harmful Toxins (BPA)
Metal braces are known for releasing harmful toxins into your mouth. This is another fundamental reason why patients have started to opt for Invisalign instead. Invisalign is made up of BPA-free plastic and does not have any dangerous toxins that can be released into your mouth.
Many who have used Invisalign have reported great results in the alignment of their teeth. It is a method that has proven efficient and convenient and thus has increased in popularity among those looking for a straight smile.
