Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that is suitable for several dental problems. Braces also treat dental issues, but the main benefit of these aligners is their virtual invisibility. There are many other benefits, but the comfort, convenience and confidence that Invisalign® provides make it one of the top treatments for many of our patients in the Oviedo, Lake Nona and surrounding areas.
It is a well-known fact that healthy teeth contribute to your overall health. If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, they may be difficult to keep clean and you may develop gum disease and bone loss. These can lead to other health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes and stroke. Invisalign® provides an orthodontic program that allows you to straighten your teeth and correct other problems without the hassle of braces.
There are so many benefits to using Invisalign®. For one, you do not need to change the way you clean your teeth. Since you remove the aligners to eat and brush your teeth, you can brush and floss in your usual way.
There are no diet restrictions because you remove the aligners when you eat a meal or a snack. With metal and other types of braces, you need to be very careful what you eat in order not to break a bracket or wire and should never bite an apple, corn on the cob or similar food. With traditional braces, you will be asked to avoid hard and sticky foods. Invisalign® lets you eat all of the foods you love, chew them properly and get the proper amount of nutrition.
The comfort provided by Invisalign® comes from the fact that the device is a smooth, clear plastic. There are no wires and brackets to irritate the inside of your mouth.
Traditional braces put a lot of force on your teeth to move them into the right position. This can weaken the tooth enamel under the bracket and cause a white spot to appear on the tooth. In addition, it is very detailed, time-consuming work to clean your teeth with traditional braces. If you do not put in the necessary time and effort, you could end up with tooth decay and even gum disease when the braces are removed.
