Why Choose Invisalign Over Traditional Options?
Traditional braces are made out of metal, can be extremely uncomfortable, and are not removable without a dental professional’s help. In addition, they can come out of alignment and cause discomfort and damage to your mouth, requiring you to visit the dentist to fix it. This can be a huge inconvenience to you and take extensive time and effort. Furthermore, metal braces are very noticeable and the only way to hide them is to not smile. You should never have to hide your smile simply due to embarrassment, as we consider a person’s natural smile to be one of the most valuable things they can have.
Invisalign, on the other hand, is a completely clear plastic aligner specifically molded to fit comfortably over your teeth. Over time, your teeth will move into the aligner’s correct position and shift gradually, week by week, until all your teeth are properly in place. These transparent aligners are worn for about two weeks each and can be removed to floss, brush, drink, and eat. The total treatment time is approximately just 6-15 months. These Invisalign “braces” are so comfortable and clear that you can wear them throughout your day without anyone even noticing!
The Connection Between Your Health and Misaligned Teeth
Misaligned teeth can lead to premature wear, tooth loss, gum disease, and the buildup of bacteria associated with bigger problems, including heart disease. More than seven out of ten adults have some kind of issue with their bite, such as crowding, spacing, or overbites. It’s difficult to remove plaque from misaligned teeth, which can result in inflamed gums, soft tissue damage, receding gums, pockets between teeth and gums, as well as bone and tooth loss. Poorly aligned teeth can put extra stress on your teeth and jawbone. This can cause, gum disease, indentions at the gum line, cold sensitivity, and chipped or fractured teeth. Studies have proven that your oral health affects your overall health. Problems that start in your mouth can spread to the rest of your body and result in heart disease, stroke, lung disease, problems in pregnancy, complications related to diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.
