Straight Talk about Clear, Removable Braces

December 18, 2012

Wanting straight teeth is not a new phenomenon. While the pursuit is old, the approach continues to change over the years. Braces have become lighter, more efficient, and more comfortable. With today’s technological advances, dentists made braces less noticeable. They call this development Invisalign. It uses plastic, instead of metal, to straighten teeth. The clear, removable aligners move your teeth gently and gradually over time, giving you the smile you want.

This dental appliance, though, is not for everyone. Orthodontic Affiliates will take impressions to see if Invisalign will work for your teeth.

Easier Cleaning

Removing food residue is one of the disadvantages of having metal braces. This may lead to plaque buildup and tooth decay. With removable Invisalign, you can continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do.

Healthier Teeth and Gums

Swollen, red gums are often the result of having crowded or misaligned teeth. Properly aligned teeth help your gums become healthier, protecting you against potential periodontal problems. The comfortable and clear aligners begin to move your teeth into the proper position, without brackets and wires.

Overall Health

Think of your teeth as a mirror to your body’s health. They say a lot about the hygiene you keep. If you’re taking good care of your teeth and gums, you’re probably taking good care of your overall health. Invisalign aligners make daily oral hygiene easier, reducing the risk of possible problems. The treatment addresses all orthodontic issues, so you’ll have better smile, confidence, and overall health.
