Invisalign vs Traditional BracesInvisalignInvisalign With Open Mouth

Do you avoid showing the world your smile? Are your teeth preventing you from making a great first impression? Is so, then you may want to consider Invisalign. Invisalign gives you the ability to enhance your smile and achieve the self confidence that can allow you to reach your true potential both personally and professionally. Dr. Vaishali Patel DDS is a licensed Invisalign provider, who has utilized her experience and vast knowledge of cosmetic dentistry to give her patients straight, confident smiles with Invisalign. If you would like to straighten your teeth and greatly improve your oral hygiene without having to wear old fashioned, bulky braces, Invisalign is the ideal choice.

How do I go about getting Invisalign?

The first step on your way to getting the smile that you’ve always wanted with Invisalign is speaking with your dentist to find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. If you are, then your dentist will take x-rays, photos, and impressions of your teeth, so that an effective treatment plan can be mapped out using 3D technology. This unique technology will even enable your dentist to see how your teeth will naturally shift, and allows for them to give you a detailed picture of how your teeth will move during each stage of the Invisalign process.

 

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

There are a myriad of benefits to wearing Invisalign aligners versus braces. Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic and don’t rely on metal wires or brackets. Thus, you won’t experience the discomfort that you would with metal braces. A few of the other key advantages are that they are virtually invisible, they can be removed whenever you like, they are more hygienic than metal braces, and you can still eat the foods you enjoy. As an added bonus, the Invisalign process typically only takes 1 year and you only have to see your dentist every 6 weeks for maintenance. With Invisalign aligners you can take them out when brushing or flossing your teeth, which leads to better oral hygiene and, therefore, better overall health.

 Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?

Though it may seem unbelievable that plastic aligners would be able to straighten just as effectively (if not more so) as heavy metal braces, it’s been proven that Invisalign can actually remedy a variety of cosmetic dentistry issues safely and without embarrassing metal brackets and wires. Patients who have paced or overly crowded teeth, bite issues (such as overbite, underbite, crossbite and overbite) can all benefit from Invisalign . If your particular dental issue does not fall into one of the above mentioned categories, then you may want to consult with your dentist to see if Invisalign, as this innovative treatment can help to improve a plethora of atypical cosmetic dentistry problems as well.
