Improving the alignment of the teeth is a good idea, especially when it comes to the proper function of the smile. Misaligned teeth are not only unsightly and unattractive, but they can also cause the upper and lower teeth to connect improperly, resulting in wear and tear on teeth that can result in permanent damage. If you need bite correction or realignment of your upper or lower teeth, you may believe that metal bracket-and-wire braces are your only hope. Fortunately, Dr. Tina Subherwal of Smile Studios provides patients in Redmond, Kirkland, and Bellevue, Washington, a much more attractive alternative–though just as effective–than traditional braces. She encourages patients to ask about Invisalign clear braces as a more discreet way of straightening the smile and improving oral health!
What is Invisalign?
Dr. Tina Subherwal is a provider of Invisalign. This treatment uses clear plastic trays custom-made for each patient’s mouth to gradually and gently shift the natural teeth into their proper positions. The trays are nearly invisible when worn, so patients do not have to feel self-conscious or embarrassed about their appearance while undergoing treatment. In addition, the trays can be removed for eating and cleaning, making them much more comfortable and convenient than metal braces.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
There are many advantages of choosing Invisalign over traditional metal braces.
First, as mentioned above, the trays are virtually invisible when worn, so others will not even know you are undergoing this treatment unless you tell them.
Second, the trays are removable for eating and cleaning, so you do not have to worry about getting food stuck in the brackets and wires or having difficulty brushing and flossing.
Third, the treatment is generally much more comfortable than metal braces, as there are no wires or brackets to rub against the inside of your mouth.
Finally, Invisalign treatment is often shorter than traditional braces treatment so that you can achieve a straighter smile in less time!
Caring for your Invisalign aligners is simple. Just brush and floss your teeth, as usual, being sure to clean your aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste to avoid build-up. You must also rinse your aligners in cool water before putting them back in your mouth. Clean your aligners regularly to prevent build-up, which can affect how they work and put the smile at risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease. With proper care of your aligners, you can achieve the desired results without any additional trays or fees. Each tray is worn for two weeks when the next tray in the series is used. Complying with treatment ensures the desired results in the quoted period.
