Benefits of Invisalign
At Dr. Tim Dumore & Team, we see many benefits in offering our patients Invisalign braces to help with correcting their crooked, misaligned teeth. These teeth aren't only unsightly, but they're also difficult to clean – which could result in periodontal disease and tooth loss eventually. Of course, conventional braces are available to help properly align your teeth, but they're unattractive, uncomfortable, embarrassing, and often painful. Invisalign offers a wonderful option here for many reasons.
Invisalign Looks Better Than Conventional Braces
With metal, your mouth may start to look unattractive because it looks like it's full of chunks of ugly metal that are challenging for you to deal with. This doesn't mean you won't notice that the Invisalign braces will go unnoticeable. You'll still see them there, especially if you're wearing them as an adult. Additionally, you may have some food that gets caught in them without you even knowing that this has happened. It's just that Invisalign in comparison to traditional, metal braces, Invisalign isn't very noticeable because it's almost invisible. They look almost like you're not even wearing any braces, which makes them a better option than traditional metal braces.
You can Remove Invisalign When Necessary
When you have traditional braces, they're attached to your teeth where they will stay until the end of your treatment at which point they're professionally removed. This is different with Invisalign clear braces because they're removable. This means that if for any reason, you want to remove your Invisalign retainers for a short amount of time, like when you're enjoying some food, it's easy for you to do so.
No Damage to Your Teeth and Gums with Invisalign
Traditional braces contain metal and wire. Sometimes these wires will protrude, and these metal pieces can puncture or scratch the inside of your mouth and your gums. This is different with Invisalign. These are clear braces that are comfortable to wear because they're smooth. Since there's no wires or any bits or pieces that are sharp or protrude from the braces themselves.
Additionally, it's important to understand that conventional metal braces can also have adverse effects if your teeth are demineralizing or decaying. This is because there's much force used by them in straightening your teeth. This is another problem you won't encounter with Invisalign. Instead, you'll experience a lot less damage than you'd typically experience from wearing braces which commonly result in problems that include cavities or even gum disease.
Invisalign can Straighten Your Teeth Fast
When you have conventional metal braces, you should expect your treatment to take as long as five years. However, with Invisalign, it can take anywhere from just one year to as long as 1.5 years.
You Will Have No Surprises
When you're thinking about getting Invisalign treatment, you'll undergo a time of fully computerized planning. This is great because you'll know precisely what you should expect and how long you will need to undergo treatment before it even begins. This is different from metal braces which are often a situation that's filled with lots of trial-and-error and doesn't give you a clear idea of the outcome.
There are some very distinct advantages offered here over conventional metal braces. Now that you can see these benefits too, give Dr. Tim Dumore & Team a call at 204-809-6026, so we can schedule you to get started with the Invisalign system today.
