Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment system that consists of custom-designed acrylic aligners, rather than the brackets and wires that make up traditional braces. The aligners are made from a clear material that keeps them virtually invisible, which is one of the most notable benefits of Invisalign®. At our Cleveland, TX, dental office, we may recommend straightening your crooked teeth with the help of Invisalign® for many different reasons. Their more discreet appearance is only one.
Keeping orthodontic treatment discreet
To many people, orthodontic treatment automatically means traditional brackets and wires bonded to their teeth. That thought may make some adult patients hesitate to treat their malocclusion, especially if their appearance plays an important role in their careers and daily lives. This makes Invisalign® aligners’ clear, nearly invisible appearance so beneficial. The ability to straighten crooked teeth without worrying about how their braces will look can encourage more people to seek orthodontic treatment sooner rather than later. This improves the chances of correcting the condition before the misalignment can lead to more serious issues, such as problems with your bite function.
Making dental hygiene easier during treatment
Appearance is important, but your daily routine consists of more than interacting with other people. With traditional braces, the accompanying brackets and wires can also interfere with things like keeping your teeth and gums clean every day. If you slack in your dental hygiene while wearing braces, oral bacteria have a better chance of accumulating in hard-to-reach places between your brackets, wires, and teeth, increasing your chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease. However, with Invisalign® treatment, your aligners can be removed temporarily to allow you to brush and floss your teeth more comfortably and effectively.
Addressing a variety of malocclusion issues
Patients who exhibit substantial issues with their tooth alignment might believe that a system of clear aligners will not be able to address their concerns. However, Invisalign® isn’t just popular because the aligners are invisible; dentists highly recommend it, as well, due to the system’s ability to address multiple types of tooth alignment issues. After a careful examination and consultation, your aligners will be digitally designed to address your specific smile concerns with optimal results.
