At My Family Dentistry, we recommend Invisalign for a lot of our patients, because it helps them enjoy straighter teeth and a healthier mouth without interfering much with their regular lifestyle. Like the name implies, Invisalign straightens your teeth using nearly-invisible aligners.
In this short video, watch Dr. Mullins explain a few of the best reasons to choose Invisalign:
1. Invisalign straightens your teeth
It really works! If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, using Invisalign aligners as recommended can straighten them out perfectly. Invisalign uses special clear aligners that are custom-fit for your mouth, gently shifting your teeth into a proper formation over time.
2. Healthier gums
As part of straightening your teeth, you will also enjoy healthier gums and better overall oral health with Invisalign. Braces can make it difficult to brush and floss effectively, because the brackets and wires create obstacles. With Invisalign, the aligners can be taken out in order to clean your teeth well every time. As your teeth become properly aligned, your gum tissues will become healthier as they adjust around the teeth into a more comfortable position.
3. Easier cleaning now and in the future
After using Invisalign – and while you’re using it, too – cleaning your mouth will be easier for you and your dentist. Straighter teeth often means better alignment of your molars, reducing potential damage from grinding, and a clearer path for your toothbrush and floss, so fixing any crooked teeth can make taking care of your mouth easier in the years ahead.
4. Enjoy a beautiful smile, even while wearing them
In addition to improved oral health, the attractive look of straighter teeth will make you feel better about your smile. Many people report feeling happier and more confident after fixing problems with their smiles, and Invisalign lets you enjoy a beautiful appearance even while you’re wearing them.
5. Invisalign offers a great alternative to braces
Most people who need braces can choose Invisalign instead. The fact that Invisalign is virtually invisible appeals to many people, as is the fact that the aligners are removable for eating and cleaning. You don’t need a painful procedure to get Invisalign aligners made for your teeth, and wearing them is much more comfortable than braces.
