If you're concerned about the appearance of your smile, you might be considering orthodontic work that may be able to correct misaligned, gapped, or crooked teeth. Our Winnipeg dentists offer Invisalign orthodontic treatment to help straighten patients' teeth and to help improve their overall oral health in the process.
Here are the reasons that you might consider Invisalign aligners as a treatment option.
Invisalign aligners are hard to detect.
If you're worried about wearing metal braces because you don't like the way they look, there's good news! Because they are made of clear plastic, Invisalign aligners are difficult to detect once they are on your teeth.
If you want to straighten your teeth without people realizing it, then Invisalign may be a good option for you.
Invisalign aligners are removable.
Invisalign aligners can help make your orthodontic treatment process a little easier.
In the first place, you can take them out to eat, so you don't have to worry about any dietary restrictions. Simply remove them prior to eating and reinsert them (after brushing and flossing) following your meal.
As you can probably guess, the fact that Invisalign aligners are removable makes oral hygiene during your orthodontic treatment straightforward, too. You can take your aligners out and brush and floss just like you normally do.
And cleaning the aligners themselves is also a fairly simple process. When you take them out, wash them gently with mild, clear soap and a soft toothbrush, and then rinse them off. That’s all there is to it!
Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic.
Invisalign aligners are made of a smooth plastic that most patients find quite comfortable to wear. Because there are no metal components attached to your teeth, you will likely experience minimal irritation. However, until you become accustomed to them, they may feel somewhat constricting.
Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth
The most important reason to get Invisalign treatment is that straight teeth are healthy teeth.
Misaligned teeth can result in a variety of oral health issues. They are more difficult to properly brush and floss because they frequently contain deep crevices that a toothbrush or floss cannot reach. This can increase your likelihood of developing cavities and gum disease.
Over time, misaligned teeth can also contribute to jaw problems. These include TMJ or TMD, pain in the joints, jaw joint clicking and popping, misaligned jaws, inefficient and painful chewing, or the inability to chew effectively.
In other words, undergoing Invisalign treatment can help improve your overall oral health!
