If you have been dreaming and envisioning yourself with a stunning straight smile, but you are turned off by the look of braces, then perhaps Invisalign is the perfect option for you. At Lansdowne Dental Care we pride ourselves on presenting this great option for our patients who choose to straighten their teeth without metal brackets or braces. It can seem odd to think that Invisalign can perform the same amount of quality as braces, however, at Lansdowne, we assure our patients that this form of orthodontics system is both workable and effective!
What is Invisalign?
There are many patients who may be confused about the different forms of braces. There are three options that provide patients different ways to straighten their teeth as they’re all forms of orthodontics. These different options can all be used to improve the alignment of the bite and can straighten the look of teeth which may be misaligned, separated, too close together, and much more.
Braces, clear braces, and Invisalign all provide patients ways to straighten their teeth. So, what are the differences between these three options? Braces and clear braces are forms of orthodontics that require a metal brace that connects all teeth together using either metal brackets or invisible brackets. Invisalign users can enjoy an orthodontic treatment without the use of the wires or brackets as the teeth will become straighter over time. This form is done by using a clear, custom-made
tray that fits over the natural teeth and works its magic invisibly.
Cosmetic dentistry is a category that is also home to the importance of the ability to bite and chew properly. The bite of a mouth is important for a number of reasons for not only to ensure the patient has good function while chewing but also while speaking and of course smiling confidently. The use of an orthodontic treatment like Invisalign will aid in preventing issues like jaw pain, headaches, and even wear and tear on the teeth. So, aside from straightening your teeth for aesthetic reasons, Invisalign is also beneficial for your oral health and confidence altogether.
