Here’s what else you should know about Invisalign treatment at Ridgewood Dental PC.
What are the Advantages of Invisalign?
If discretion is important to you, it’s worth looking into Invisalign aligners. These orthodontic aligners are made out of a clear and comfortable plastic that fits snugly around your teeth. Since Invisalign is barely noticeable, this gives you the confidence you need to greet the world with a smile during orthodontic treatment.
Another advantage of Invisalign aligners is that they’re removable. This allows you to continue eating your favorite foods. Patients with traditional metal braces, on the other hand, have to be mindful of the foods they eat. This is because foods that are sticky and/or hard to chew may damage their metal braces.
Sinceare removable, you’ll be able to brush and floss normally as well.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
In general, we tend to recommend Invisalign treatment for teens and adults. This is because it requires a tremendous amount of discipline to consistently wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours per day. If you don’t wear your aligners as directed by our Invisalign dentist, you risk falling behind on your treatment plan.
Our cosmetic dentist in Hobart, IN, can use Invisalign to straighten teeth that are crooked and crowded. Invisalign may also be used to correct issues with your bite, such as an overbite or underbite.
