Choosing Invisalign Instead Of Braces

Straightening your teeth is one of the best investments you can make. Properly aligned teeth enhance your smile improving appearance and self-confidence. The Invisalign Orthodontic System is a unique approach for straightening teeth using clear, removable aligners that straighten teeth without uncomfortable brackets and wires.

What Is Invisalign? 

Invisalign uses a series of computer-customized aligners to gradually straighten teeth. Invisalign aligners are clear, removable and custom-made to incrementally move teeth. 3-D computer imaging creates a treatment plan using a series of aligners. Each aligner is used for about two weeks and is then replaced by the next in the series.

Reasons To Choose Invisalign Over Braces 

Invisalign offers several advantages over the traditional orthodontic approach of braces. 

  • Appearance: Conventional braces fill your mouth with unsightly metal brackets and wires that can easily get food trapped in them. Invisalign aligners are clear, invisibly straightening your teeth without unattractive pieces of metal on your teeth. Invisalign aligners are also easier to keep clean as they can easily be removed to clean rather than spending extensive time flossing out food from hard to reach places.
  • More Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are smooth and custom-made to fit your teeth comfortably within each step in the series. Each aligner is just slightly adjusted so you may feel some tightness for the first couple days. However, there are no painful metal brackets or wires allowing you to avoid discomfort, irritation and painful adjustments.
  • Quicker Treatment Plan: Invisalign typically takes only one to two years to straighten teeth in comparison to the several years it takes through conventional braces.
  • No Food Restrictions: With braces, there is a list of foods that should be avoided in order to not damage the brackets or affect the teeth. With Invisalign there are no food restrictions. Aligners are easily removed making it possible to eat whatever you want with worrying about causing damages.
  • Previewed Treatment Plan: Invisalign’s technology allows you to preview your treatment plan before you even begin. Through computer imaging, you will be able to see how your teeth will look when you’ve completed your treatment. You will also be able to know what to expect during the entire series.

Exploring the Endless Benefits of Invisalign Teeth Straightening

Having straight teeth is more than enjoying the act of smiling at others.

In fact, straight teeth could improve everything from your confidence to oral health.

To get you the straight teeth you have always wanted, consider trying Invisalign teeth straightening.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign was released in 2001, and since then, they have manufactured over a million of their clear teeth straightening systems. Using biomechanics, Invisalign was the first company to conceptualize the combination of digital technology and shape engineering using biomechanics. Using a series of plastic aligners, you can gradually shift your teeth into a straight position without the wires and metal brackets of traditional braces.

The Benefits of Teeth Straightening

  • Teeth are Easier to Clean: When you have braces, you struggle to keep your teeth clean. Food sticks in the metal brackets, and you are limited to certain foods. Most patients using the traditional braces for tooth straightening will see plaque buildup, no matter how excellent they are at brushing.
  • Invisible: No one knows you are straightening your teeth except you (and your dentist, of course). Invisalign uses clear aligner trays that are fitted to your mouth. You can talk, laugh, and smile with them in place and no one will notice them like they would traditional braces.
  • No Irritation: Metal braces have brackets and wires that are uncomfortable, poke the inside of your mouth, and are hazardous when you play contact sports. Invisalign will not cut or poke the inside of your mouth.
  • Just One Year of Treatment: Metal braces can take up to five years until your teeth are straightened perfectly, but most adults only use Invisalign for 12 months.
  • Healthier Gums and Teeth: Crooked teeth and a full mouth leads to red, swollen gums. When your teeth are straightened, and aligned as they should be, the gums fit around teeth the way they are intended to – defending you from gum disease.

Braces in Las Vegas: Invisalign – 3 Reasons It Beats Traditional Braces

Have you been told that you should have braces?  Whether you’re 12, 72 or any age in between, the idea of orthodontia might cause you to shudder.  After all, no one wants to be seen with a mouth full of metal.  Thankfully, there is a better option if you’re considering braces in Las Vegas: Invisalign.

3 Reasons Why Las Vegas Invisalign Braces Are the Way to Go

The latest advancement in orthodontic technology is Invisalign. Henderson dentists, as well as others throughout the US, highly recommend this form of treatment.  Here are 3 reasons why.

  1. They Are Virtually Invisible

Invisalign braces are made up of a thermoplastic material.  They look very similar to bleach trays, but are sturdier.  The invisibility of these braces makes them ideal for people of any age.

  1. Invisalign Braces are Comfortable

Traditional braces can, at times, be somewhat uncomfortable.  Between the metal brackets rubbing against your cheeks to the regular adjustments at the dental office, they’re not always the most exciting option when it comes to the topic of comfort.

Invisalign braces, however, are extremely comfortable.  The smooth plastic material is gentle to the soft tissues of the mouth, making the orthodontic experience much easier.

  1. Clear Braces Can Be Removed

Another great thing about these clear braces is that they are removable – great if you have an important meeting, pictures to take, or just want to eat in comfort.  These orthodontic appliances can be removed when you need to brush and floss at night – something that can be a bit cumbersome with traditional braces.  This means that you are more likely to stick with your (easier) dental hygiene routine and keep cavities and gum disease at bay during your treatment.

Your Las Vegas Dentist Will Be Able to Tell You What’

Making decisions is not always fun, and sometimes having more information can make a decision even more difficult.  That is why you should talk to your dentist about InvisalignLas Vegas dental offices, like ours, have a highly trained staff that can evaluate your individual needs and explain your best option.  Such input will make the decision easier so you can quickly step onto the path toward a beautiful smile.

Are you considering dental braces?  Have you ever wondered whether Invisalign braces would be right for you?  Please contact us today to find out more about this wonderful option.  We’ll be happy to answer any of your questions!
