When choosing a dental treatment to perfect your smile, you want to make sure that the treatment is going to fit all of your needs. Our Toluca Lake dentists believe that the more information that you, as a patient, have, the more empowered you are to make excellent dental decisions.
So, today, we are providing you with important information about one revolutionary treatment in particular: Invisalign. We hope that this overview helps you get a better idea of how Invisalign works, and whether it can help your smile.
Why choose Invisalign?
1. You can straighten your smile, discreetly
We all know that metal braces look very noticeable on a patient’s teeth—there just isn’t really a way around this. The solution is to use completely metal-free Invisalign aligners! These aligners are totally transparent, so when you are wearing them, your smile still looks natural and unblemished.
2. Go metal-free for comfort
Another downside of metal brackets and wires is that these things can cut and irritate your oral tissues. Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, are smooth and quite comfortable. Some patients do experience some soreness and sensitivity right after they switch to new aligners, but this generally goes away after a day or two.
3. Keep your smile clean
Many cosmetic dentistry patients report that it is pretty difficult to clean their smiles while they have metal brackets and wires attached to their teeth. Because Invisalign aligners are totally removable, you will take them out of your mouth to floss and brush your teeth. In this way, Invisalign really doesn’t hamper your oral hygiene routine at all.
