One of the most cited reasons among adults and children alike regarding orthodontic treatment for misaligned teeth is the stigma associated with the visibility of traditional braces. Romans & Soltani Dentistry has been providing dental patients in the Camillus, NY area with an effective and subtle alternative to metal braces for orthodontic care. Invisalign braces are the most popular solution for making a perfectly aligned smile quickly and conveniently. If you’ve been considering getting treatment to straighten teeth, and create a beautiful smile, find out how Invisalign can help.
What Is Invisalign Treatment?
This orthodontic treatment takes advantage of a new innovation in dental technology to create clear braces that are custom-made for each patient. These braces can be put on and removed in much the same way as a dental guard, making them easier to clean and convenient to wear. Patients wearing Invisalign trays are able to get a correction for their misaligned teeth without the obvious appearance of metal braces. Patients at all stages of life can benefit from this innovative orthodontic treatment while discretely working towards the perfect smile they’ve always dreamed of.
What Material Are Invisalign Made Of?
The BPA-free plastic material that is used in the creation of these braces makes them incredibly comfortable to wear, especially when compared to traditional braces. This material is resilient enough to stand the wear and tear of regular eating and keeps its form as your teeth readjust. In addition, it’s safe to wear and easy to clean.
Who Can Benefit From Invisalign Braces?
Any patient, regardless of age, can benefit from wearing Invisalign braces depending on their oral health concerns. Open bite, underbite, crossbite, and overcrowded teeth can all be treated, as well as gaps in the teeth and misalignments. As part of determining if your smile can benefit from Invisalign treatment, Dr. Romans or Dr. Solanti will perform a general dental check-up and have x-rays taken to get a clear image of your oral health.
How Does Invisalign Correct My Smile?
The Invisalign process consists of wearing a set of specially design plastic braces known as ‘aligners.’ These aligners are worn every day for two weeks, only being taken out for 2 hours a day for cleaning and eating. After this period, the patient switches to the next set of trays, set to help the patient’s teeth continue their journey to their final positions. How long this process takes is dependent on the condition of your teeth and your goals with Invisalign. Every six weeks throughout the process, you will have a visit to the dentist to see if everything is progressing well in your treatment.
How Is Invisalign Superior To Traditional Metal Braces?
Invisalign braces tend to come at a higher price-point than traditional metal braces. It’s common for patients to ask how they benefit from these more expensive braces, and the answer goes further than just aesthetics. The benefits of Invisalign are as follows:
- These braces are clear, meaning most people won’t know you’re wearing them.
- Your teeth will move into place more precisely using Invisalign.
- Oral health is easier to maintain with Invisalign than with traditional braces.
- Your teeth and gums will not be as irritated as with metal braces.
- There are fewer follow-ups with Invisalign treatments than with metal braces.
