The Benefits of Invisalign
By now, most adults and teens with the desire for a perfectly straight smile have heard of the system known as Invisalign®. Using a series of progressive aligners, it works like old-fashioned and unattractive braces to straighten the teeth and correct many different bite issues. Naturally, being invisible to the naked eye is among the key benefits of Invisalign, but there are many more. It is why Ballston Dental offers these clear braces in our Ballston Spa, NY office.
As a form of cosmetic dentistry, the Invisalign system actually comes with much more than just those esthetic benefits. Let’s consider them one by one:
Perhaps one of the nicest benefits of Invisalign is that it can deal with dental issues as far ranging as cross bite, open bite, underbite and overbite. Not only straightening the teeth, but ensuring the healthiest and most productive bite.
Of course, a major selling point for many is the fact that the Invisalign trays are almost impossible to detect. Unlike standard braces with brackets and wires, the benefits of Invisalign include that they are clear, PBA-free plastic trays that fit over the teeth and do their work without anyone noticing.
When you wear other forms of dental straightening appliances, like braces, your diet is restricted. This can make it challenging for those who enjoy certain foods, and having to avoid them can lead to upset and frustration. With Invisalign, you pop out the tray to eat, brush and floss after you are done, and pop the aligner back in.
You know the outcome
One of the biggest benefits of Invisalign is that the trays are designed using a high-tech system that allows a patient to see what their smile will look like when the process is done. There is no guess work and a patient knows exactly what they can expect.
Checkups are painless
Another of the key benefits of Invisalign is that a checkup takes only moments and does not involve tightening or adjusting that forces them to leave with great pain and discomfort. With Invisalign, your visits are brief and you change the trays every two weeks according to the computer designed schedule.
