Why Invisalign is the “clear” choice for straightening the teeth
Do you want straighter teeth but avoid talking to your dentist about it because you dread the idea of traditional braces? If so, you are not alone. Many New York, New York area men and women who have an imperfect smile may have thought about orthodontic treatment at some point. Fortunately, there are other ways to achieve proper dental arch alignment to avoid gaps and crooked teeth that don’t require unsightly metal appliances. Dr. Mary A. Taudel and her team at Park Avenue Dental may recommend to patients the benefits of an alternative solution called Invisalign.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is a specialized treatment designed for clear teeth straightening within the dental arch for better alignment and improved bite. Instead of using brackets that are glued to the teeth and are connected by metal wires, Invisalign uses transparent aligner trays. Patients have an entire series of trays fabricated for them to help them achieve their new smile. The trays are worn for two weeks before the patient progresses to the next tray in their series. When worn for at least 20 hours a day, patients can achieve their desired results in the expected timeframe. Compliance is key!
What are the benefits of Invisalign orthodontic treatment?
Invisalign has several advantages that make it a popular treatment option for many patients. Invisalign:
- Is more comfortable than traditional braces
- Allows for a healthier smile as the trays can be removed for brushing and flossing
- Offers flexibility for patients when compared to conventional orthodontia
- Builds self-confidence even while realigning the smile
- Are more convenient and easier to use
- Is discreet, allowing patients to straighten their smile with practically invisible aligners
