As a teenager or an adult, the idea of braces, even clear braces, may make you cringe. Yet you want that corrected and perfectly aligned smile, too. Fortunately, there is a very good answer that can be used by the vast majority of teens and adults seeking orthodontics. It is known as Invisalign and it relies on a unique system of clear aligners that can get the job done discreetly, and without anyone knowing you are having your teeth straightened. While this privacy is one of the top benefits of Invisalign treatment, there are much more.
Dr. Wali Hamidy at La Jolla Dental Image in La Jolla, CA is an Invisalign specialist who is able to offer our patients this innovative approach to dentistry and encourages everyone to take time to discover the different benefits of Invisalign when making a decision.
Basic Benefits of Invisalign
As your preferred dentist in La Jolla, we might recommend aligners because your bite is causing problems with your oral health. It could also be to correct a poor bite or even as a cosmetic treatment. This flexibility shows that there are many benefits of Invisalign beyond their invisibility.
They are also an approach that is superior to braces because they are removable. You take them off to eat, drink and do regular oral hygiene. However, this means you don’t struggle like you would with braces. It is easy to floss and brush, get regular exams and cleanings and live without any additional hassles.
The aligners are smooth and never irritate the soft tissue of the mouth either. No pain, abrasions or need for wax to eliminate problems. You do have to maintain the aligners by cleaning them, and switching to a new one every two to three weeks, but even this is a benefit as it means fewer office visits. Traditional orthodontics require adjustments to the wires, frequent visits and more time spent commuting.
