How Does Invisalign Treatment Work?

Invisalign orthodontic treatment works a bit differently than traditional metal braces. Traditional braces straighten teeth well, but can be uncomfortable and cannot be removed. Alternatively, Invisalign works with a series of clear plastic aligners that help shift teeth gradually into their ideal position. Once they choose clear braces, patients are given an initial exam and a careful imprint is taken of their teeth. The individual measurements are then sent to a lab for custom-made clear plastic aligners. The first set of aligners takes approximately two weeks to arrive and a new set will be sent to you every other week. Total treatment time is usually between 12 and 18 months.

The Amazing Benefits of Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign treatment is a convenient and comfortable way to straighten your teeth. But did you know that Invisalign also offers many oral health benefits? Here are some of the reasons why you should consider straightening your teeth:

1) Orthodontic Care Can Improve The Health Of Your Teeth and Gums

Crooked or misaligned teeth can cause an increase your chances of getting gum disease or other oral health diseases. Invisalign clear aligners can be easily removed so that your can practice good oral hygiene habits. All of this can help you achieve healthier teeth and gums, as well as a cleaner mouth.

2) Orthodontic Care Can Help Reduce Jaw Pain

Crooked teeth can cause jaw pain, tooth grinding, and uneven tooth wear. Over time, uneven bite patterns can cause jaw pain, muscular problems, and other problems. Invisalign patients can alleviate many of these jaw pain issues and simultaneously give themselves a more attractive smile.

3) Orthodontic Care Can Decrease Tooth Decay

Perhaps the most obvious oral health benefit to using Invisalign may be the fact that Invisalign patients are able to keep their mouths much cleaner than those patients who have traditional braces. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating, cleaning and proper oral hygiene. This cuts down on cavities, decay, mouth sores, gum problems, and bad breath.

4) Orthodontic Care Can Help Improve Your Digestion

Misaligned teeth can cause patients to have trouble chewing properly. This can result in incomplete chewing and poor digestion. Once your teeth are properly aligned, you can chew your food completely and get better digestion.

5) Orthodontic Care Can Help You Get Improved Health

Recent studies have linked significant oral health problems like depression, anxiety, gum disease, infections, heart disease, endocarditis, cardiovascular disease, premature birth and low birth weight, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s and other general health problems with poor oral health. When you improve your oral health by something as simple as straightening your teeth, you reduce your chances of suffering from any of these ailments.

6) Orthodontic Care Can Increase Your Self Confidence

When your smile isn’t ideal, your confidence can take a hit. Luckily, when you fix your smile with orthodontic care, you can dramatically increase your self-esteem and improve your social interactions.
