Why Choose Invisalign Over Braces?
While traditional metal braces still have many beneficial uses, especially for children, orthodontic methods have advanced considerably in discreetness and speed over the past several years. At dental clinics in Calgary offering cosmetic dentistry services, such as Arbour Lake Dental Care, you now have the option to choose a treatment known as Invisalign for your teeth straightening needs.
Invisalign treatment in Calgary consists of using a series of clear, plastic, retainer-like trays to move the teeth into alignment. The trays are custom-made for you after your dentist takes an impression of your teeth. Your dentist will
advise you on how long to wear each set of trays and when to move on to the next one. After wearing your final set, your teeth will reach the desired alignment.
The main reason why people choose Invisalign at Arbour Lake Dental, your Calgary dental clinic is because the treatment is far more discreet than teeth straightening with brackets and wires. In fact, when the trays are worn, they are virtually invisible. If you've always been worried about the look of braces, then Invisalign is the perfect solution for you.
Another highly appealing benefit of Invisalign is how fast the treatment is when compared to traditional braces. Braces can take years to slowly straighten the teeth, while Invisalign treatment may take around a year for substantial
alignment issues to as little as 6 months for more minor ones.
There is also simply no beating the convenience of wearing Invisalign trays compared to the sometimes frustrating experience of wearing braces. Though the plastic aligners need to be worn regularly, they can also be easily removed. Removing the aligners for a short time to floss, eat, and drink won't affect treatment, and makes those tasks much easier to perform.
The final edge that Invisalign has over traditional braces is that Invisalign trays are much more comfortable to wear. Though they can take a bit of getting used to, Invisalign aligners should not cause you any significant discomfort or
Your Calgary dental clinic can let you know if you are a good candidate for teeth straightening treatment with Invisalign. Invisalign can be used in adults and older teenagers who have a fully developed jaw. Healthy teeth and healthy gums are also important for successful Invisalign treatment.
Choosing Invisalign in Calgary can do more than just refresh the look of your smile. Teeth that are crooked, misaligned, or have spacing issues can actually lead to the development of oral health issues. Straightening them out can make your teeth easier to brush and floss, making them less susceptible to cavities and tooth decay.
