Nothing attracts better than a smile. Anyone who wishes to welcome this coming New Year, 2015, with a confident smile must consider using Invisalign. It is a teeth aligner that is used in place of metal braces. It can be used by any person irrespective of age, gender or status to improve his or her smile. If you’re not confident with your smile, read on to find out more about the benefits of Invisalign:
Benefits of Invisalign
Easier cleaning of teeth
When using Invisalign, it is easier to clean teeth because it is removable, unlike braces. Most of the traditional braces that people place in their teeth cannot be removed at any time. Therefore, it is difficult to remove all the food particles that may be stuck between the teeth and the braces. On the other hand, a person can remove Invisalign after every meal in order to clean his or her teeth properly. It is more comfortable since it has a smooth plastic that can provide comfort for the teeth, and as well, allow alignment.
Gradual teeth movement
The movement of teeth when using Invisalign for alignment is gradual and properly shifts teeth into place, depending on the prescription of the orthodontist or dentist. With Invisalign, one does not have to use wire braces to tighten the teeth, which might end up causing bleeding of the gums due to possible piercing. The process of teeth alignment is safe and painless.
Shorter time frame for treatment
Compared to other teeth aligners, such as traditional braces and veneers, Invisalign requires a relatively short period for teeth treatment. An average treatment for an adult is one year. This short period allows patients to get a straighter smile in less time than traditional metal braces.
Invisalign causes minimal interference in the daily life of its user. One just needs to place a new set of aligners after every two weeks until the treatment ends.
Everyone wants a beautiful smile that he or she can afford to show off in public. It is important to choose a method of aligning teeth wisely. Call Dr. Kristen Ritzau DDS today for your Invisalign consultation so you can go with confidence into 2015! 949-234-6850
