Orthodontic treatment offers a number of benefits for your smile. By addressing misalignment, you improve your smile’s health and appearance. However, we often find patients in North Hollywood, CA, hesitant to treat their misalignment, fearing how braces will impact their appearance. Fortunately, we have a solution with a metal-free series of aligners known as Invisalign®.
The Invisalign® Difference
As we mentioned above, Invisalign® doesn’t rely on metal brackets and wires to correct the position of the teeth. Instead, we will take a series of detailed digital impressions of the smile, as well as x-rays and measurements. Using the information, our office will design and create a series of aligners from a clear, BPA-free acrylic material. The aligners will be worn daily, each set for about two weeks, 20 to 22 hours a day. Over the course of about a year, the position of the teeth will be corrected and you will enjoy a more even and healthy smile.
The Benefits of Correcting Misalignment
We often urge patients with misalignment to seek treatment because poor alignment has been linked to higher risks of tooth decay and gum disease, as often proper brushing and flossing is difficult with crooked or crowded teeth. Poor alignment also has been linked to intense pressure on the jaw joints, leading to a higher chance of TMJ disorder and bruxism forming. Treatment can help you avoid these complications, and obtain a more attractive smile at the same time, one you will be happy to show off when you laugh or smile. Don’t let poor alignment impact your smile’s health and appearance anymore!
The Advantages of Removable Braces
First, the aligners will be clear and barely noticeable when worn. No more issues with your professional appearance! In addition, the treatment process is much shorter than is required for braces, and you will need fewer office visits. You can remove them before meals, so no worries about food becoming trapped in your orthodontics. You won’t have to avoid certain food items as well! In addition, being removable means a much easier time brushing and flossing your teeth, which allows you to keep your smile healthy during the treatment process. If you have any questions about the process of correcting misalignment, or about the benefits of our clear aligners, then contact our team today. We can perform a detailed examination to see if Invisalign® is the right choice for your smile!
