Are you tired of putting up with crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth? Here’s some good news: we can solve your problematic smile with one of our safe and effective treatments. It’s called Invisalign. This clear aligners system is supposed to help with appearances but it is not strictly a cosmetic dentistry solution.
It is really an alternative orthodontic solution that is designed to boost your overall oral health. Keep reading to hear more about the possibilities of clear aligners, and then be sure to request your orthodontic consultation at Smiles of Punta Gorda. All you have to do is call 941-585-0424 to get started.
Enjoy The Clear Advantages Of Invisalign
Invisalign takes a radically different approach (than braces) to resolving orthodontic problems. In fact, Invisalign eliminates the need for metal brackets and wires completely.
This method makes use of a series of clear plastic aligner trays that are simply switched out at home by you every two weeks over a period of about 12 months.
There won’t be any in-office adjustments each month or the typical 2-3 years of waiting for treatment to wrap up that goes along with regular metal braces.
Plus, these virtually invisible aligners will be harder for any onlookers to see and they are very comfortable to wear. SInce there are no metal parts, there likely won’t be any mouth sores or bleeding along the way.
The Invisalign aligners are also removable which allows for wider menu options. And cleaning your gear is as simple as running the aligners under warm water (you just keep brushing, flossing, and rinsing, as usual). There are no dietary restrictions or special tools required!
In summary, clear aligners are an easier way to enhance your smile by working out your orthodontic issues. Invisalign also guards your oral health, too, in that it helps with the following problems…
Undo The Damage Of Overcrowding
Sure, crowded teeth can look unattractive, but they also present more than a cosmetic challenge. Living in such a condition can actually bring about the onset of cavities and periodontal disease.
You see, teeth that are so close together are hard to keep clean. As such, dangerous bacteria is given an opportunity to run wild. Plaque can build up and cause inflammation and infection once it slips below the gumline. This can result in tooth loss and worse if the bacteria gets into your bloodstream! While we can help you work through the restorative dentistry process, it is always better to prevent that from happening.
Beware Of Gapped Teeth
Gaps in your smile means that your individual teeth will not be protected by the surrounding teeth. This increases the risk of your teeth loosening up, among other things. If you have grown weary looking at the spaces in your smile, and you want to protect your individual teeth, Invisalign should be able to help you all the way around.
Don’t Underestimate An Overbite
Having an overbite can place unwanted stress on your teeth and lead to worn-down or cracked teeth that will need to be repaired by a professional. Invisalign can help make your bite better now and eliminate the need for more costly cosmetic improvements down the road.
