Using Invisalign as an alternative to traditional braces
Are you interested in an invisible alternative to traditional orthodontia? Do you live in the communities of Livermore, Dublin, Pleasanton California or surrounding cities? Are you ready to enhance your smile but want to avoid metal bracket-and-wire braces? If this sounds like you, it may be time to talk to Dr. Kimberly King of Kitty Hawk Dental Care to discuss the advantages of Invisalign, a clear aligner solution for straightening the smile.
What is Invisalign?
Dr. King describes Invisalign as a series of clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible. Invisalign is an excellent choice for patients looking for a more discreet way to realign the teeth in the dental arch without embarrassing metal appliances. The trays are custom-made for the patient and gently push teeth into alignment without unsightly traditional braces.
Why choose clear aligners?
Many patients might choose Invisalign because of its many benefits, especially compared to the traditional metal bracket and wire braces. Some of the advantages of clear teeth straightening include:
- The clear aligners are nearly invisible, so most people will not even notice that you are wearing them.
- They are much more comfortable to wear than metal braces. There are no wires or brackets that can rub against your gums and cheeks, causing irritation.
- You can remove the aligners, which means you can eat whatever you want and brush and floss your teeth with ease. Food restrictions are often necessary with traditional braces to avoid damaging the brackets and wires.
- Clear aligners are generally more affordable than traditional braces. In some cases, they are comparable in cost, and many patients choose to move forward with invisible braces instead.
