How Is Invisalign® in St. Augustine Different?
If you would like to straighten your smile without unsightly and uncomfortable metal brackets and sharp wires, Invisalign® clear aligners may be right for you. Invisalign® is a modern approach to teeth straightening that eliminates many of the problems patients suffer from traditional braces.
Your Smile Is All They See
Clear aligners are transparent so most won’t even notice you are wearing them! Compared to brackets and wires your natural smile is all people will notice.
Aligners Are Removable
With Invisalign® you can remove the aligners to eat, brush, and floss. This allows you to continue to enjoy your favorite foods as you always have. You can also be confident that if you are brushing and flossing normally, your teeth will remain in good health. With braces, people often experience unsightly white spots or decay because they cannot properly brush and floss.
Invisalign®Treats a Variety of Issues
Invisalign® can treat a wide variety of teeth alignment issues including:
- Overlapped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign® uses a series of clear aligners, customized to fit your smile. These aligners gradually and gently move the teeth. Once you meet with Dr. Gordon and come up with a treatment plan, you will then receive a series of personalized aligners. Every two weeks you will change to a new aligner as your teeth shift into place.
What Are the Benefits of Straightening My Teeth?
The benefits of having a straight smile are many. Of course, the impact on your self-esteem is one of the greatest benefits. On top of that, there are also health benefits to having straighter teeth. When teeth are overlapped or crooked, gum tissue can become easily inflamed. It is also more difficult to clean teeth properly when they are misaligned. Once your teeth are straight, your risks for bacterial infection (dental caries and periodontal disease), and tooth wear decreases significantly.
