Do you want to straighten your teeth in a discreet and convenient fashion? Well, the dentists here at Southshore Dental, Drs. Mehul Patel and Heba Abuhussein, understand how you feel, which is why they offer Invisalign at their Trenton, MI, office—read on to learn more!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign consists of custom-made clear aligners that fit over your upper and lower teeth. These custom aligners are made by your Trenton dentist using specialized computer software, CAD/CAM. The aligners, like traditional braces, apply slight pressure on each tooth so that it moves into its proper position. Your trays are exchanged for a new pair every two weeks as part of a sequential teeth-straightening treatment plan.
The clear plastic aligners are flexible and comfortable, which doesn't irritate soft tissue. In order to get the most out of your treatment, you need to wear the clear braces for a minimum of 20 hours a day. You can take them off to eat, brush, and floss teeth, and during important events, like a wedding or an interview.
There are many benefits to opting for Invisalign. It is a better option when it comes to maintaining your oral hygiene because you can move it when you need to brush and floss. The discreet dental appliance is a great alternative for older teenagers and young adults who want to avoid traditional metal braces. With Invisalign, there are no dietary restrictions because you're free to remove braces when you need to eat and you can actually use them as nightguards to protect teeth against teeth-grinding or a poor clenching habit.
