There are more reasons to smile about Invisalign® at our office than you may know. Patients often ask us how Invisalign® treatment compares to braces. Invisalign® is a series of removable aligners that are nearly invisible. The aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Besides straightening your teeth, Invisalign® can improve your oral health. Here is how:
Healthy gums: Straight teeth allow a close fit for gums. This lessens the stress caused by crowded or widely spaced teeth, thus reducing red and swollen gums.
Easy cleaning: Invisalign® is removable, making brushing and flossing easier and allowing you to maintain a healthy mouth. This is vital to avoid tooth decay, plaque, and gum disease.
Improved speech and chewing: Properly aligned teeth do not cause discomfort or compound speech impediments that crowded teeth or a deteriorating jawbone can.
