A dental device used to adjust teeth, the Invisalign tray is a transparent dental brace that seamlessly aligns with your teeth. Our dentists at Premier Dental can help meet your orthodontic needs with this innovation. Braces are used to treat a variety of orthodontic issues such as crowded or crooked teeth, underbites or overbites, irregular jaw positions, jaw joint disorders, etc. Additionally, dental braces are also used for improving orofacial expressions, as well.
There have been several transformations in the types and forms of dental braces. From wired, ceramic to lingual braces, there are plenty of dental braces options that are recommended for different dental issues. For many mild to moderate cases, we do recommend the use of Invisalign thanks to the many benefits it offers our patients.
Invisalign aligners or clear aligners are a highly popular and efficient form of dental braces. It is a plastic and transparent dental brace that fits onto your teeth. While the traditional wired braces used to ruin your look, Invisalign remains quite invisible on your teeth.
Invisalign application is pretty simple. We take a digital scan of your teeth to create a mold of your teeth that is further used to make the Invisalign braces. The set of braces or trays is then supplied to you. Every set has a sequence to be followed that will gradually make minor adjustments to your bite until it is fully corrected to the desired arrangement. It is a gradual process that we will advise you on so you know when to switch to the next tray in the set. To understand why more dentists are opting to prescribe this treatment, let us look at several key benefits they offer over the more traditional braces.
Convenience and Comfort
There is no doubt that Invisalign is the most comfortable type of braces. Their custom-made fit that perfectly aligns with your teeth would make anyone ditch the uncomfortable and painful wired braces. The changes are arrived at slowly with minimal adjustments made with each changing tray that applies small pressure to straighten out teeth.
Easy to Remove
Unlike any other braces that require you to visit us to remove, Invisalign is self-removable. You do not require any assistance to remove your Invisalign on your own. You can seamlessly take it out while you are eating or brushing.
Short Term Application
We all know that applying wired braces means you are stuck with them for a year or so, but with Invisalign, you can treat your teeth within 10-24 weeks. The treatment time is way shorter than any other brace type. Misalignments can be quickly corrected, particularly with mild cases.
Wired braces can be painful, even after their application. Metal braces can create cuts and rashes inside your mouth. Invisalign, on the other hand, is made from a smooth plastic that avoids the pain, poking, and irritation of wearing a teeth aligner.
Invisalign is a very effective solution for many orthodontic problems. To find out if you qualify to take advantage of this dental solution, get in touch with us for an appointment. Call us, Premier Dental at one of our three convenient locations today.
