Invisalign involves wearing a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners that help to shift teeth into the proper position. Like braces, Invisalign correct overcrowding, overbites and spacing problems with teeth. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign are preferred by patients for a number of reasons:
- they are virtually invisible
- they are removable so that people can eat and drink without them.
- they avoid the complications related to metal braces
- they are more comfortable.
Invisalign is not just about having a nice smile. Correcting crowded teeth and poor bites have a major benefit to your oral health as well as your overall health. Straightening teeth can improve and facilitate oral care such as brushing and flossing. This will help prevent cavities in the long run. Improving poor bites will help with chewing food properly and lastly, improving your jaw and overbite will help improve your airway and decrease the chance of future jaw problems such as TMJ dysfunction.
