ADVANTAGES OF INVISALIGN
Teeth alignment and bite problems are not only unsightly, but left untreated, these can also lead to a host of other dental problems. In the past, a dentist in Dublin, OH would typically recommend the use of conventional metal braces to remedy problems like crowding and spacing of teeth and cases of crossbites, overbites, or underbites.
And while metal braces are effective in treating these issues and straightening teeth, there are a few downsides to their use, chief of which is the obvious appearance of the metal wires and brackets. As such, it is not unsurprising for patients, especially teens, to complain about this issue to their Dublin dentist.
The Clear Alternative
These and other problems associated with metal braces can be eliminated with the clear alternative: Invisalign.
These clear aligners can effectively treat some of the same conditions addressed by metal braces. Although because the aligners are removable, you can enjoy your favorite meals without worrying about food debris getting stuck. Brushing and flossing become easier as well since you can do these the way you would normally would.
The aligners are made out of smooth and clear plastic. This means that you do not have to be embarrassed about wearing Invisalign. They’re practically invisible. This also means that the aligners are comfortable to wear and issues like the irritation of the cheeks and gums are essentially eliminated.
