Does it Get Any Better Than Invisalign?

 

Invisalign Houston TXMany people express a desire to have a straighter smile. This is nothing new.  Even before we had formal research to confirm that the smile is one of the first things that stands out about our appearance, evidence suggests that humans tried several techniques to enhance their teeth. Why we care so much about having a nice smile doesn’t matter, because there are several reasons we could give. What matters is that we have ways to achieve just about any intended goal. In the Royal Dental offices throughout the Houston area, one way we do this is with Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alternative to metal braces that is appropriate for many patients. Teens and adults alike can benefit from this system and its ability to correct misalignment, overcrowding, gaps, and even bite issues. Invisalign isn’t just clear braces; it is an aligner method that straightens teeth using BPA-free plastic trays that can barely be seen in the mouth.

The fact that Invisalign is the most discreet method of straightening teeth available today is great, but that isn’t enough to make it also one of the best systems around. The reason why Invisalign is so successful is that a great deal of effort goes into the fabrication of every aligner. After the initial consultation, direct imaging of the mouth is used to create a 3-dimensional model of the teeth as they are at the onset of treatment. The Invisalign software processes original imaging to develop a sort of short-length film; one that digitally moves teeth from where they are to where they need to be. From this film, a series of aligners are made. It’s quite fascinating!

What You Get from Invisalign

Of course, you get a straighter smile after you complete Invisalign treatment. If you’ve researched this treatment method at all, you know that you also get to keep eating your favorite foods and you get to bypass the discomforts that go along with braces, like small nicks and cuts from metallic points. A few additional benefits that occur with Invisalign include:

  • More efficient oral hygiene. When your teeth are straight, your brushing and flossing practice will achieve better results in the long run.
  • Gum health. When teeth are aligned, the gum tissue around them can fit around each tooth more tightly and securely, which is good for preventing gum disease in the future. Just remember to keep flossing!
  • Jaw alignment. When opposing teeth fit properly, the jaw doesn’t have to sustain as much stress when biting and chewing.
