Having a straighter, better-aligned smile is more attainable than you may think. Many patients automatically think of traditional braces when they are faced with the decision to straighten their teeth. The idea of metal brackets and wires is often disconcerting, and results in a patient never attempting to do anything about the look of their smile. However, many are unaware of the benefits of invisible braces in LA. Patients of Downtown Dental can achieve that beautiful smile without the use of metal brackets and wires. Thanks to Invisalign, many patients, both young and old, can benefit from an amazing smile once and for all.
Invisalign invisible braces in LA utilize clear aligner trays that are worn by the patient to readjust teeth into more desirable positioning. This can be done both in the rear of the mouth (to adjust and realign a bite) as well as on teeth near the front of the mouth. When patients have the option to choose between traditional orthodontia and invisible braces such as Invisalign, many opt for Invisalign due to the numerous benefits.
Traditional metal bracket and wire braces can be extremely unattractive, and can affect a patient’s confidence and self-esteem during treatment. Clear braces such as Invisalign are almost invisible to others as you eat, talk, and laugh. They are a wonderful way to undergo orthodontic treatment without compromising your appearance.
Metal brackets and wires can often irritate the inside of a patient’s mouth, and they may need to use orthodontic wax to protect their sensitive skin. Invisalign is made from smooth plastic that is completely comfortable and easy to wear.
Easy to Clean
The great thing about Invisalign aligners is that they are removable, which makes it easier for patients to brush and clean the trays as well as their own teeth and gums. Flossing and brushing is much easier when you’re not working around wires and brackets.
No Food Restrictions
Many orthodontic patients are restricted from enjoying certain foods and treats, such as gum, taffy, popcorn, and other delicious items. With Invisalign, your aligner trays are removed when you are eating, drinking, and caring for your teeth. This allows you the opportunity to eat what you like without worrying about your expensive orthodontia.
