Invisalign is an exciting orthodontic treatment option for patients who are looking to correct their teeth without the need for traditional, metal braces and wires. At Kingsland Family Dental Care, we are pleased to offer our patients the convenience of Invisalign Orthodontics.
Traditional orthodontic methods used to straighten teeth include appliances and metal braces. Wire braces have a reputation for being both unattractive and uncomfortable. Food also gets trapped in the brackets and wires which makes them hard to keep clean. In addition, traditional wire braces can also cause plaque to accumulate and the tooth decay process to speed up.
Although traditional orthodontics, using wire and brackets, are still recommended in some complex orthodontic cases, we want you to know that there is an alternative that answers all of these challenges If you are considering orthodontic treatment, but want to avoid the inconvenience of traditional orthodontics, Invisalign could be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually move your teeth into their ideal position. Thanks to the removable aligners, Invisalign makes it easy for you to continue brushing and flossing your teeth like you regularly would!
As important as appearance can be, the benefit of Invisalign goes well beyond just straight teeth. When your teeth are in their ideal position, it is easier to bite, chew, and even speak.
It may come as a surprise that straight teeth also contribute to healthy teeth and gums. Straighter teeth are easier to brush, clean, and floss! The ability to take better care of the teeth through oral hygiene also helps prevent future cavities and periodontal disease. This latter problem is of particular concern because over time it can lead to the destruction of the bone that holds the teeth in place.
