Straighten Your Smile Discreetly With Invisalign
posted: Jun. 26, 2022.
In the past, achieving a straighter smile usually meant wearing metal braces that were readily visible anytime you smiled. Now you can straighten your smile discreetly with Invisalign. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign straightens teeth with the use of soft aligner trays that are clear so they are practically invisible! The trays are also removable, which makes brushing and flossing easier. Invisalign is available from Silverman & Associates, your Bayside and Bellmore, NY, family dentists.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an innovative method for straightening teeth that are crooked or misaligned. In place of the metal brackets and wires associated with traditional braces, Invisalign utilizes flexible plastic trays to straighten and align the teeth. Like traditional braces, the Invisalign aligner trays apply controlled forces to move the teeth into the desired position. A specialized software program is used by your Bayside and Bellmore family dentist to map out a multi-stage plan for moving the teeth. New aligner trays are created for each stage of the plan.
Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign offers several advantages for teens and adults who want to straighten their smile. Some of the primary advances of Invisalign aligner trays are that they are discreet, comfortable and removable.
One of the biggest benefits of using Invisalign to straighten the teeth is that it is discreet. As stated, the Invisalign trays are clear, which makes them barely visible when smiling or talking. The clear trays are much less noticeable than the silver brackets and wires of traditional metal braces. Further, the trays are removable so they can be taken out temporarily for photos and special occasions. The trays can also be removed when eating and to brush and floss. This makes it easier to keep both the teeth and the trays clean for improved oral hygiene.
Another advantage of Invisalign trays is their comfort factor. There are no uncomfortable metal brackets and wires to poke the gums, as can happen with traditional metal braces. The soft plastic aligner trays fit comfortably over the top and bottom rows of teeth with no hardware to cause discomfort. There is little risk of gum irritation when wearing the flexible aligner trays.
