While it is an appealing thought to have a straighter, more attractive smile
, the idea of wearing metal braces can be quite unpleasant. Most adults and many teens would do just about anything to avoid the look of a metal smile, even forgo orthodontic treatment altogether. The modern technology used in the Invisalign
treatment plan is a game changer in the area of orthodontics, and your dentist near Mississauga
is happy to help you experience the many benefits of this process.
Many people are discovering that orthodontics no longer has to mean wire braces. Invisalign has been widely used all around the world for several years, and continues to achieve successful results
for patients of sherway dentistry. The basic principle of care is the same: to move teeth gradually using consistent pressure. Where Invisalign differs is in its form.
There are no brackets and wires in the Invisalign system. The straightening aligners look more like a mouth guard or teeth whitening trays than braces, but their power is no less efficient. Through step by step planning and the use of modern software, Invisalign aligners are made with precision. When each set of new aligners is inserted, they will feel slightly tight. The pressure applied will be felt in a similar way as with conventional braces. In every other aspect, however, the benefits of Invisalign are very clear.
Patients love the fact that Invisalign aligners are removable. The primary benefit to removing aligners is the ability to enjoy a variety of foods. Additionally, removing aligners before brushing and flossing means no special technique must be employed to adequately cleanse all areas of the mouth. Finally, because new aligners are inserted every two weeks, there is no need to adjust wires to continue the positive movement of teeth. This means fewer dental visits throughout the course of treatment.
Removable aligners sound very appealing, yes, but many patients find that they really do not mind wearing clear plastic trays every day. Invisalign aligners are made to form closely around teeth. With no brackets, there are no sharp corners and no bulky feeling behind lips.
We all want to feel good about our smile. Misalignment can rob us of our natural inclination to smile freely. Braces, as well, can have this effect even if for the greater good. With Invisalign, you don't have to feel self-conscious about the appearance of your smile. And if you've got a special event or important meeting for which you want a completely natural smile, you may remove aligners for a short period of time.
