Unexpected Benefits of Invisalign

There is nothing more reassuring than a bright and straight smile. This is why dental treatment is very important for anyone with dental imperfections. Invisalign® is one of the best orthodontic treatments that involve the use of a series of removable aligners as an alternative to the metal braces. Trays are individually customized to gradually straighten teeth. These aligners are made of comfortable, smooth and almost invisible clear plastic that is worn over the teeth. Aligners help to shift the teeth gradually into their place based on the dentist treatment plan for each individual patient.

With Invisalign there are no wires or brackets cemented to teeth. Traditional braces can be uncomfortable and abrasive to the inside of the mouth when talking. If a wire becomes loose, it can be quite painful as it pokes and cuts the inside of the mouth. That being said most adults and teens these days are opting for the “straight teeth, no braces” Invisalign method of straightening their teeth.

The aligners allow patients to remove them when eating, brushing and flossing. They are able to eat all their favorite foods without the potential of embarrassment of a wire popping loose or food getting caught between the wires and brackets.

Teens can feel totally comfortable attending proms, graduation exercises and sporting events. They can gain self-confidence and poise as they begin to see their teeth move into proper alignment.

The main reason Invisalign treatment works so well is because patients tend to be more compliant with the treatment. They have options for relief from pressure on the teeth by removing the aligners for shorts periods. Knowing they have options helps them become more compliant. They tend to brush and floss more often. They wear their aligners more hours per day as they see the movement before their eyes. As the movement continues aligner change after aligner change, patients become more aware of how proper care of their teeth is helping change their total self- image.

Because of this, they become excited about their new straight smile. The emotional and financial investment they have in their Invisalign treatment leads them to snack less and focus on wearing their aligners more hours per day. The more aligners are worn the faster the teeth move.

Ultimately, with wearing the aligners more hours the less snacking results. Less snacking leads to potential weight loss and boost their self-image even more. The final results include better dental health, reduced weight and a beautiful straight smile.
