For decades patients relied on metal braces, which are bulky and uncomfortable, and many patients felt insecure with visible metal in their mouths, especially teenagers or career-focused adults.
Invisalign changed the game, which is why we offer and recommend this invisible option to patients in our Webster Groves, MO dental office.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is more comfortable than traditional braces. Unlike traditional braces, there are no metal brackets or wires. Instead, Invisalign relies on custom plastic aligners to bring your smile in line. These aligners are smooth and designed to fit your mouth—every contour and every tooth specifically!
Besides ease of wear, other benefits of Invisalign include:
- Easy removal for eating and optimal brushing/flossing
- The ability to straighten teeth better or more comfortably compared with traditional braces
- An aesthetic appearance because Invisalign aligners are clear
- No more cuts and scrapes insides your cheeks from the metal and wires associated with conventional braces
According to the American Dental Association, straight teeth helps to optimize oral hygiene. When teeth are straight, brushing and flossing are easy. With straight teeth, it is harder for bacteria to collect between overlapping teeth!
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign begins with a comprehensive smile assessment in our Webster Groves, MO dental office and ends with custom Invisalign aligners created to fit your mouth. Every few weeks a new aligner will be utilized. These aligners are subtly different and designed to bring your smile in line gradually for optimal results and ease of wear.
Dentists recommend Invisalign to their patients for all the reasons listed. Invisalign merely is a superior alternative to braces and much easier on the mouth and the self-image!
