Invisalign dentistry in the Port Credit area an optimal choice for a straighter smile
When Invisalign aligners were proven capable of straightening smiles, the world of orthodontics was forever changed. In the Mississauga area, residents turn to Dentistry on 10 to achieve healthier, straighter smiles. When you find that you can improve the look of your smile, and your oral health, without metal braces, there is a lot to smile about.
For many adults and even a large majority of teenagers, metal braces are very unappealing. At the same time, misalignment in the smile can have a dramatic effect on self-confidence and oral health. With custom-designed clear aligners made of BPA free plastic, a crooked smile can be transformed into something far more attractive. The primary characteristic of aligners is the discreet appearance throughout treatment. In addition to this benefit, however, are many others.
Invisalign is a system that is very easy to use. Before eating, aligners are taken out of the mouth. After meals, teeth can be brushed and aligners cleaned and inserted. Likewise, aligners are removed morning and night for brushing and flossing and easily put back in. These practices remain the same throughout the entire course of treatment.
Because aligners are removed before meals, Invisalign has the benefit of allowing patients to continue enjoying the foods they have always eaten. With metal brackets and wires treatment, one of the biggest drawbacks is the necessity to avoid certain foods, such as crunchy nuts or chewy treats. This improved freedom that comes with Invisalign should not be mistaken to mean that care is not needed to maintain healthy teeth and gums. It is important to brush before inserting aligners after a meal or snack.
The metal brackets used in conventional orthodontic
treatment are square with sharp corners. As such, they tend to be at
least slightly uncomfortable. With the smooth plastic aligners of
Invisalign, there are no edges to poke soft tissue.
The various benefits that exist with Invisalign have made this treatment option incredibly popular. Dr. Rina Kotecha has helped many patients achieve the smiles they desire without hassle or intense discomfort.
