Straight Talk About Invisible Appliances
Welcome back to our dental blog!
Here at the family dental practice of Dr. Ghina Morad, we strive to provide a full range of dentistry services to the families of San Carlos, all in a beautiful setting nestled amongst the California redwoods.
Our dental solutions include pediatric care, TMD/TMJ relief, teeth whitening, mouthguards, gum disease treatment, crowns, bridges, fillings, regular exams, cleanings, and more.
We also offer “invisible” braces for our adult patients who could benefit from orthodontic work, but aren’t up for the rigorous demands and embarrassing visibility of traditional braces.
In fact, these days, one of our most popular offerings is Invisalign, the system that totally re-imagined orthodontic treatment when it first appeared at the dawn of the new millennium.
What Can Invisalign Help Me With?
That all depends on your situation.
Are some of your teeth crooked?
Are they over-crowded?
Are there any gaps in between your teeth?
These are the sort of issues that Invisalign can help you with.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might be a good candidate for Invisalign.
Why Should I Bother With The Hassle Of Braces?
First of all, the health and appearance of your smile is worth improving at any age.
More than that, we can assure you that the process of reconfiguring your smile is not like it used to be.
Before Invisalign came along, the only option for orthodontic treatment would be to have unseemly metal brackets and wires attached to your teeth to force them to straighten up.
Obviously, most adults would prefer to skip the embarrassment and mean-spirited nicknames that go along with wearing old school braces.
There’s no escaping the fact that metal looks kind of weird in your mouth. Unfortunately, it feels even worse.
Plus, treatment time for adults wearing traditional braces can take up to three years and involve painful adjustments as well as strange tools for cleaning your appliances.
Nobody has the time or patience for that kind of ordeal.
That is the beauty of Invisalign.
Invisalign Makes It Easy
Invisalign is different, and better, in a lot of ways.
This system works by employing a series of aligners that are based on molds of your mouth and our projections for desired movement.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are purposefully subtle.
They are made of smooth, clear plastic, which makes it hard for anyone to notice that you are in the midst of orthodontic treatment.
You can actually remove Invisalign aligners at will.
This is especially helpful during spontaneous photo opps, not to mention when eating and drinking.
You can also pop them out to rinse them off whenever you need to.
Since they won’t trap food like their metal counterparts, that will be the extent of your cleaning ritual!
What’s more, Invisalign aligners fit snugly over your teeth, which make them comfortable to wear.
There won’t be monthly “tune up” sessions at the orthodontist because you will simply swap out your aligners yourself when the time comes.
Perhaps the best part about Invisalign is that the treatment process can wrap up in about a year.
