Invisalign: Take the frown out of achieving a show-stopping smile 

Invisalign has emerged as a highly popular solution for repositioning wayward and improperly spaced teeth. The merits of Invisalign treatment extend beyond merely producing a gorgeous smile. Invisalign aligners promote optimal oral health, can be removed with ease and allow you to continue eating the foods you love. Let’s take a closer look at the numerous benefits of Invisalign treatment.

Reduces The Likelihood of Periodontitis

If your teeth are improperly spaced or overcrowded, you are that much more likely to end up with gum disease at some point in the future. Alternatively, if the teeth are positioned exactly where they should be, the gums will fit nice and firm around the teeth, creating a robust barrier against infections.

Corrects Bite Issues

Invisalign remedies everything from overbites to underbites and open bites. Overbites, also referred to as an overjet, occurs when the upper teeth protrude beyond those at the bottom. This condition typically results from underdeveloped bones, genetics, and poor oral health. An underbite is present when the lower teeth move beyond those at the top. Underbites result from insufficient upper jaw growth, lower jaw overgrowth or a combination of both. Missing additional teeth will also lead to an underbite.

Underbites and overbites must be corrected with Invisalign or an array of oral health problems will manifest in due time. Underbites and overbites cause everything from gum irritation to wear along the lower teeth, joint issues, a painful jaw, and tooth dysfunction. Invisalign can prevent/correct all of these problems and then some.

Eliminates Open Bites

Open bites are identified by upper/lower teeth that cannot make physical contact with those they face. Open bites are commonly caused by excessive thumb-sucking and/or an oddly-formed jaw. Fail to have your open bite corrected with Invisalign or another solution and you will end up with pain while chewing and/or a speech impairment.

An Effective Solution for Crossbite

Crossbites occur when the lower and upper jaws are misaligned. This condition leads to one or multiple upper teeth biting the inside portion of the lower teeth. Crossbite can occur along the front of the mouth as well as the sides. If you suspect you have a Crossbite or if your dentist determines this, Invisalign is the answer.

Overcrowded Teeth

If there is not enough room in the jaw for the teeth to fit properly, they will become overcrowded. Overcrowded teeth are a problem beyond their unsightliness. Overcrowded teeth are a problem as they cause tooth decay, gum disease, the buildup of plaque and even worse. If your overcrowded teeth are neglected, there is the possibility they will endure deep cracking. Do not let this happen! Meet with your Coolangatta Dental Group dentist for a full mouth analysis and Invisalign aligners.

The Ultimate Confidence Boost

Patients plagued by overcrowded or crooked teeth often suffer from low self-esteem. These patients are sometimes hesitant to smile wide, laugh or even eat in front of others. This, of course, is no way to live. Self-confidence is especially important for people who are hyper-aware of their physical appearance. Opt for Invisalign treatment and your crooked or improperly spaced teeth will gradually shift to the proper positions. It might take upwards of a year or so for the transition to occur yet it is well worth this comparably brief moment in time. There is no reason to live the rest your life with a flawed smile when Invisalign is available to you. Straighten your teeth with Invisalign and you will have the confidence you need to be yourself when interacting with others, smile, laugh, talk and eat without worrying about how your teeth look.

 

Shorter Treatment Period

Invisalign is the easy and effective solution to teeth straightening. Traditional braces require at least the same length of time as Invisalign aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign is a non-invasive procedure that proves more comfortable than other options. Thanks to the use of 3D digital scans, it is no longer necessary to take traditional tooth impressions. This is fantastic news for those who have a considerable strong gag reaction. Furthermore, digital imaging is not as intrusive as traditional X-rays. The icing on the cake for many patients is the use of computer-aided design (CAD) dental technology which creates an open environment that is ideal for anyone who suffers from claustrophobia.

A Convenient and Comfortable Solution

Invisalign aligners are incredibly popular as they are highly effective and quite comfortable compared to conventional braces. Aligners shift the teeth into the ideal position in a timely manner. There is no need to use those ugly wires or brackets required by traditional dental braces. This is the comfortable, convenient and low-maintenance tooth-straightening solution you have been dreaming of.

Aesthetically Appealing

Needless to say, regular braces are not as aesthetically pleasing. If you take the traditional braces route, you will be self-conscious about your smile until your teeth eventually straighten a year or two later. The better approach is to use translucent Invisalign aligners comprised of medical grade polyurethane. This material is nearly completely invisible. You will be able to open your mouth in front of others and it is unlikely they will notice you are using any type of aligner to straighten your smile.

Invisalign Aligners are Removable

Invisalign is revered by patients and dentists alike as the aligners are removable. You can remove these aligners to floss and brush your teeth as you normally would, improving your oral hygiene amidst the course of teeth-straightening.

Eat the Foods You Love

If you ask most people who have tried braces to straighten their teeth, you will find they were limited by the food restrictions. Those who rely on braces cannot eat sticky or crunchy foods as braces cannot be removed from the mouth until one or several years have passed. If you decide Invisalign is the best course of action for you, you will be able to eat whatever type of food you desire, whether that be popcorn, lollies, or anything else crunchy or sticky.
