Happy holidays Lincroft, NJ! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of Newman Springs Dental Care. This year is just flying by, it seems like just yesterday we were warning parents about the risk of tooth decay from Halloween candy! At our comfortable and modern office we take your oral health very seriously; if you ever have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to call our office.
In our last blog post, we described some of the benefits offered by the Invisalign system of orthodontics. In the days which have followed, many patients have contacted our office to ask more about Invisalign. So in today’s post from Newman Springs Dental Care in Lincroft, NJ, we taught we’d share some more information about the benefits of Invisalign orthodontics.
But first, let’s review the top three benefits of Invisalign which we mentioned in our last post. First, Invisalign is more comfortable than traditional adult braces. Instead of the traditional metal brackets and wire method, Invisalign uses a system of clear aligners to reposition your teeth. Invisalign aligners are designed to fit perfectly over your teeth and not cause you any discomfort.
Second, Invisalign is less noticeable in your smile than traditional adult braces. Invisalign takes its name from the fact that the aligners used for treatment are nearly invisible when you’re wearing them. We like to call Invisalign “your secret smile.”
Third, Invisalign works in about half the time of traditional adult braces. Traditional metal braces take two years (if not longer) to be effective. Although Invisalign works for most patients in about a year, the increased speed of treatment does not increase patient discomfort. In fact, there’s no painful adjustments required with Invisalign.
Still not convinced that Invisalign from Newman Springs Dental Care in Lincroft, NJ, is right for you? Then consider the following additional benefits!
Benefit #4: Invisalign Orthodontics is as Effective as Braces for Many Orthodontic Issues
As we’ve spoken to potential Invisalign patients, we’ve noticed two things. First, that many people mistakenly believe that Invisalign is only an option for very limited orthodontic issues. Or that Invisalign won’t work for most patients. These things couldn’t be further from the truth!
At Newman Springs Dental Care in Lincroft, NJ, we’ve used Invisalign to correct many different orthodontic issues for our patients. Invisalign can be used to treat crooked teeth, crowded teeth, narrow arches in teeth, orthodontic relapses, and anterior intrusion. Numerous university studies have put Invisalign to the test and found it to be just as effective as traditional braces!
What’s more is that most adults and many adolescents are candidates for treatment with Invisalign. For most patients all that is required is a set of healthy teeth. On occasion, we may have to correct problems caused by tooth decay before you can undergo treatment with Invisalign.
Benefit #5: Invisalign Won’t Wreck Your Meals
One of the longest standing issues with traditional adult braces is the sheer amount of limitations they place upon their wearers. Perhaps the biggest inconvenience is that it can be extremely difficult to eat with traditional metal braces. There’s a ton of different foods you have to avoid when you’ve got a mouthful of metal.
Certain harder foods like crusty bread or steak can knock a bracket right off of your teeth. Other foods tend to get caught in the brackets and wires of traditional adult braces. Foods ranging from pasta to candy can get lodged in the wires. This can cause you great discomfort, require additional orthodontist appointments, and increase your risk of tooth decay.
Invisalign from Newman Springs Dental Care in Lincroft, NJ, presents no such as issues because the aligners are removable. You just take out the aligners before every meal, then enjoy water foods your heart desires!
Benefit #6: Invisalign Won’t Leave Yellow Stains on Your Teeth
Traditional adult braces use brackets which are fixed in place for two years or more. Not only is it hard to brush while in metal braces, many patients discover a nasty surprise upon having their braces removed. They find yellow stains where the brackets were once placed on their teeth! So no they have to undergo teeth whitening before they can show-off their new smile!
You can avoid that issue entirely with Invisalign. You simply take out the aligner to brush and floss your teeth like normal. That means you’ll be ready to show-off your new smile as soon as you finish treatment!
