The correction and straightening of your teeth is often necessary for not only improving your aesthetic but also for preserving the functionality of your teeth. There are two methods used for teeth correction; fixed metal and ceramic braces and a removable solution like Invisalign. Invisalign has become an incredibly popular solution over the last few years because it's more convenient and poses fewer restrictions on a person's diet and activities. At Johnny Smith DMD, we are amongst the first cosmetic dentists in Peoria, AZ who have provided our patients with Invisalign and have been given overwhelmingly positive feedback.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a tailor-made, removable, teeth-correcting system that is not noticeable in a patient’s mouth when worn. Invisalign trays are specifically designed to address the issues of a patient, and this method is effective, convenient and offers an excellent alternative to traditional braces. Two main distinctions from traditional metal and ceramic braces are that Invisalign is quite invisible and that the trays are removable. They can be taken off during meals and other times where a person would like to engage in other activities that are hindered by braces.
Every two weeks, a new set of trays are provided. These trays are slightly adjusted to correct the issues further and straighten your teeth, making sure that the progress is constant. This process is painless and gradual and offers successful treatment of teeth crowding, overbite, crossbite, underbite, spacing, and other issues.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Convenience and an improved aesthetic are two of the most significant benefits of Invisalign. Many patients prefer the fact they are removable and don't hinder daily routines like brushing your teeth or eating. Below is a list of more Invisalign benefits:
• Straightens teeth as effectively as traditional braces
• Invisible while worn
• No wires or metallic parts of any kind
• Comfortable and barely noticeable
• Protects the gums and tissue surrounding teeth
• Offers unhindered access for brushing and flossing
• No dietary restrictions.
Your Peoria, AZ Invisalign Dentist
After the initial assessment, a patient receives their first trays and is advised to wear them as much as possible. Like traditional braces, Invisalign corrects teeth by actively applying pressure in the desired direction, and this slowly forces the misaligned teeth to fall into correct places. To ensure optimal results, a patient receives a new set of trays every two weeks, ensuring your trays are always effective and that they stay invisible.
