Invisalign for Newark
A beautiful smile is a valuable commodity, and one of the key attributes of a good-looking smile is straight teeth. Of course, not everyone is born with teeth that are perfectly aligned. That’s where orthodontic treatment with aligners becomes important. However, for many adults and teenagers, traditional braces with metal brackets and wires are less than desirable. They just don’t want to live with that metal mouth look for two years or more. If you’d like to straighten your teeth but don’t want metal braces, then consider Invisalign. With Invisalign, Newark dentists Dr. Bond and Dr. Ganfield can correct a number of alignment concerns more discretely.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that uses clear aligners. These invisible aligners in Newark are arranged in a sequential order. As patients advance from one pair of aligners to the next, their teeth gradually move into proper alignment. Each pair is designed to build on the progress of the previous, so that at the conclusion of treatment you have a beautifully straight smile.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
The primary benefit of Invisalign clear aligners is that hardly anyone will see that you’re wearing braces. Up close and personal they may be noticeable. However, during normal social or professional interactions most patients report feeling completely confident to speak, smile and laugh as usual.
In addition to being completely clear, Invisalign aligners are removable, which gives Invisalign two distinct advantages over traditional braces that are bonded to your teeth. First, when it’s time for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack, you simply remove your Newark clear aligners and eat whatever you like. Patients wearing metal braces often must be careful about what they eat. Foods such as popcorn, caramels, hard nuts, raw carrots and chewing gum are usually off-limits because they can dislodge or break a bracket. With Invisalign, these and other foods you enjoy are permissible.
Similarly, you’ll be able to remove your Invisalign clear aligners when you need to brush and floss your teeth. This way, you can maintain your normal oral hygiene routine and better avoid tooth decay and gum disease.
