Patients in Etobicoke, ON enjoy unexpected benefits of Invisalign
posted by sherway dentistry
If you are considering Invisalign clear braces, you are probably already aware of the obvious advantages. The system of smooth plastic aligners moves teeth into attractive positioning using a comfortable low force. Because they are transparent, most people won't realize you are straightening your teeth. Invisalign is efficient, with the average treatment plan taking as little as 6 months to a year. However, there are some benefits of Invisalign that surprise many patients in Mississauga and Etobicoke, ON.
More than just Oral Health Habits can be improved
While Invisalign is in no way a weight reduction plan, some patients may develop healthier eating habits. The aligners are removable, for normal eating, but they must be worn 20 to 22 hours a day for optimal results. That tends to limit between meal snacking. You may drink water with aligners in place, but they must be removed for other beverages. Coloured drinks may stain aligners. Sugary concoctions get trapped between the trays and teeth fostering tooth decay. Hot beverages could warp the plastic. Again, this helps patients cut back during treatment, often curbing those habits for a lifetime.

- Aligners are removable, so you don't have the challenges of keeping teeth clean around brackets and wires.
- Most patients are thrilled with their straight, attractive smiles. They protect that investment in appearance and self-esteem by taking better care of their teeth during Invisalign treatment and for the rest of their lives.
- Crooked teeth make regular brushing and flossing more difficult. After straightening, it is easier to get teeth clean, and dental floss glides right into place.
- Misalignment creates overlaps and crevices that trap bits of food debris. These spots produce an ideal environment for oral bacteria to flourish. Straight smiles are less prone to cavities and gum disease.
