Top 5 Primary Benefits of Invisalign
While we can all agree that having a perfectly aligned smile is aesthetically beneficial, there are actually a lot of other positive aspects. In Manhattan Beach, most of our patients come into our office with questions about how to enhance their smile. Whether it’s through whitening treatments or better dental habits, there are always ways you can improve your smile. When it comes to choosing a procedure, one of the most popular treatments our patients request in Manhattan Beach is Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Most patients know Invisalign has “invisible braces.” This is a pretty precise description of what Invisalign is. Invisalign uses a clear tray-like mold to slowly realign your teeth. Like braces, every so often you will renew your trays to move your teeth. However, there are varying versions of this treatment that can cater to specific needs of each patient. At Redondo Beach Dental Group, we offer different types of Invisalign that are fitted to our Manhattan Beach patients’ needs. Using a 3D iTero technology, we can give patients a faster treatment time compared to other dental offices.
How Does Invisalign Benefit Me?
If you’re considering a way to straighten your teeth, you might wonder how much better Invisalign actually is in comparison to general metal braces. We understand that our Manhattan Beach patients want the best smile they can possibly have with the most effective treatment. That’s why we have outlined five of the top benefits of using Invisalign to help re-align your smile.
Invisalign improves your overall health. When you get Invisalign, it helps make your teeth healthier and stronger. Having your teeth aligned can help prevent others dental issues from happening such as overcrowding or too much space. Also, if you take good care of your teeth, your overall health will improve.
Your teeth will be easier to clean and brush. If your teeth are too crowded, you might already struggle with brushing your teeth effectively. It may also be quite difficult to floss when your teeth are overcrowded. With Invisalign, your teeth will be more evenly spaced, and it will be much easier to clean your teeth properly.
Your overall physical appearance will improve. This may be one of the more understandable reasons to use Invisalign. Most people realize how much a radiant, straight smile can positively enhance your happiness, self-esteem, and ego. At the end of the treatment, your teeth will be noticeably straighter, and therefore more aesthetically appealing.
You needn’t be burdened with the annoyance of metal braces. Metal braces are effective but can be painful and uncomfortable. It’s much harder to floss and keep your teeth clean when you have traditional braces, compared to with Invisalign.
As a result, you will have a better long-term dental health. Sometimes when you have crowded teeth, or too widely spaced teeth, you can suffer from discomfort in your gums. Over time, this can become a huge problem and result in bleeding gums or periodontal disease. Invisalign can help align your teeth so that your gums won’t be negatively affected.
