Our team at Cosmetic Dental Associates changes lives every single day with our groundbreaking dentistry services because we want people to have gorgeous, healthy smiles they’re proud of. One of our cutting-edge treatment options that helps us do that and that’s also incredibly popular for older teens and adults with crooked teeth is Invisalign, a faster, more comfortable aligners system that moves teeth into the right position.
Here are three reasons patients love this alternative to metal braces:
1. Straight Teeth Are Healthier Teeth
Crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth don’t just affect your smile’s appearance. These issues create additional spaces in your mouth for food particles to get stuck, which will feed harmful bacteria that causes cavities. When teeth are nice and straight, it’s easier to keep your mouth cleaner and, therefore, healthier.
2. You Can Reduce Dental Wear & Tear
Upper and lower teeth should come together properly without grinding or crashing against each other when you speak and chew. If you have teeth that are out of alignment, you’re at a higher risk for damaged tooth enamel, decay, cavities, and premature wear.
3. Your Smile Will Look Great!
The most obvious benefit of Invisalign is cosmetic because you’ll have a straight, beautiful smile when you finish your series. The nearly invisible aligners are incredibly discreet, so you’ll feel more confident during and after your orthodontic treatment!
