CAN YOU SEE MY BRACES?

July 7, 2011

You know the value of having a confident smile. When you are confident, you don’t have to say anything; people can sense it and see it. Whether interacting at work or going out with friends, your confidence to smile speaks volumes.

In my last blog, I explored Six Month Smiles braces for adults.  This blog is all about Invisalign.  Many of my patients choose Invisalign to straighten their teeth because they like the ‘invisible’ factor.

What is Invisalign? Invisalign is a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into position.

How is it different from other treatments? Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires to move teeth, they are not removable, and brushing and flossing require attention and effort.  Invisalign are custom trays that can be removed to eat, and for brushing and flossing.  And if you are really self-conscious for a big event, you can remove the aligner for a short period of time and pop them back in when you get home.

Can my teenager have Invisalign instead of traditional braces? Most pre-teens and teens that have significant bite problems are better served by seeing an orthodontist for a complete, or comprehensive, orthodontic treatment. But many older teens with minor spacing or crowding issues are ideal candidates in our office.

What are the health benefits of straight teeth? The benefits of straight teeth it not just for looks.  Properly aligned teeth leads to a healthy mouth. Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Unfortunately, these are also signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems.  Your teeth and gums – and how they look to others when you smile—say a lot about your overall health. If you’re taking good care of both, you’re probably taking good care of the rest of you.
