Mountain View Invisalign Dentist – Latha Subramanian, DDS, FAGD, FALD, FWCLI
Invisalign invisibly straightens your teeth with a series of custom-molded aligners.
All that you have heard about teeth straightening in the past is a myth. Todays technology is way too advanced and overwhelming. Invisalign is a proprietary method of orthodontic treatment which uses a series of clear, removable teeth aligners used as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces, hence this is very popular amongst adults.
A transparent and visible alternative.
This technique uses a series of transparent removable aligners, The aligners are completely transparent, therefore far more difficult to detect than traditional wire and bracket braces. In addition, the aligners are marketed as being more comfortable than braces. Due to the removable nature of the device, food can be consumed without the encumbrance of metallic braces. Clinically, aligners avoid many of the side effects of traditional fixed appliances,including the effects on your gums and supporting tissues.
Save on your treatment time:
The exact length of treatment depends on the severity and sensitivity of your case and can only be determined by your dentist; however, the average case takes about 12 months for adults. The length of time necessary for a teen patient may vary and can be determined by your dentist, In a much recent study of Invisalign, it was proved to be faster and achieve straighter teeth than alternatives.
Appearance and comfort:
Metal braces can be very unattractive especially when you are an adult or a teenager, it is even worse maintaining them as you can get your food caught in them without even being aware of it. Invisalign clear braces are barely noticeable. If, for any reason, you wish to remove them for a brief period of time (to eat or drink), you may easily do so.
Knowing what to expect:
While considering Invisalign, you undergo treatment planning that is fully computerized. Therefore, you will know exactly what to expect and how long they will need the braces before you even begin wearing them. Metal braces are usually a trial-and-error kind of situation which gives no clear idea of what is to come.
Overall, Invisalign offers distinct advantages over conventional metal braces. It costs slightly more, but in the end, is well worth the price. They are more comfortable than metal braces, pose fewer risks to teeth and gums, and provide beautiful smiles much faster.
