Benefits of Invisalign®
When most of the think of orthodontic braces , we often remember the sharp metal and wire monstrosities we or our friends endured. one of the most commonly cited reasons for not pursuing orthodontic work is not the pain or the expense, but “having to wear braces.”
As a cosmetic dentist in Fredericksburg, VA, we’re now able to put these fears aside by using a revolutionary product called Invisalign®!
Sometimes called ‘clear braces’ or ‘plastic braces’, Invisalign® braces are made from a transparent plastic that fits over the front surface of the teeth. Instead of tightening wires, you visit the dentist every few weeks for a new set of aligners as your teeth shift into their new positions.
Invisalign® braces have many benefits over traditional braces. They are more comfortable than metal braces and do not catch on the sensitive gum tissue. In most cases, Invisalign® braces do not take any longer to be effective than traditional braces.
At meal times, they can be removed, allowing patients to eat what they want, and they can be removed to brush and floss teeth as well, preventing the plaque and staining problems that plague traditional bracing methods. Finally, because they are clear plastic, they are nearly imperceptible and do not detract from a patient’s smile.
Invisalign® Braces are the modern method of improving tooth and jaw alignment, periodontal health, and improving the confidence and smiles of both adults and teens.
