Chances are good that you’ve heard of Invisalign treatment, the nearly invisible way to straighten teeth. Teens and adults all over the country are turning to Invisalign to get their ideal smile, and you could be a great candidate too if you are looking to fix a crooked or misaligned smile. From the office of our Bloomington, IN, dentist, Dr. Lisa Baker, here are the benefits you’ll enjoy when you choose Invisalign:
Teeth that are crooked or misaligned can often wear away more quickly because the jaw is putting more pressure on certain teeth when biting and chewing. One way to prevent this problem is to get orthodontic treatment to straighten your smile and redistribute the weight evenly. By getting Invisalign you could end up protecting your teeth from serious damage.
With traditional braces, it can be challenging to properly brush and floss around brackets and wires. After all, the last thing you want to deal with during orthodontic treatment is cavities. Conversely, with Invisalign, you can actually remove your aligners prior to brushing and flossing, allowing you to care for your smile as you normally would.
Again, traditional braces come with a set of rules that don’t really apply to Invisalign. Besides making oral care easy you also won’t have to change your diet around to accommodate your treatment. Just remove your aligners prior to eating or drinking and you can still enjoy all of your favorite foods without worrying about damaging your braces.
If you are an adult who is getting Invisalign from our Bloomington, IN, general dentist, then you may actually achieve results faster with Invisalign than you would with traditional braces (depending on the issues you are looking to correct, of course).
The average length of treatment with Invisalign is one year, however, you may get a straighter smile even sooner.
