The benefits of having the Invisalign system go beyond simply repositioning misaligned teeth. With Invisalign you have the pleasure of clear, removable trays that help to not only improve appearance but have significant health advantages, such as reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
You may be interested in Invisalign for fixing crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth. However, did you know that Invisalign also helps to correct abnormal bite functions? These happen when the lower and upper jaws don’t fall together properly. When these bite problems go unfixed, they can further oral health issues tooth loss, cavities, gum infections, erosion of enamel and even difficulties with speaking or eating. Teeth that are spaced too widely or crowded too close together can result in gum disease. When your teeth are positioned the correct way your gums fit more firmly around your teeth. This helps to provide a much better defense against gum infections.

Comfort and Convenience
Invisalign aligners have become a very poplar alternative to traditional braces.
They work by gradually moving the teeth into the proper positioning without the mental wires and brackets of normal braces. They are made from medical grade polyurethane resin which makes them almost invisible when covering the teeth.
One of the best things about using Invisalign is that you are able to take them off during the night. You can easily brush and floss your teeth as normal before going to bed or in the morning. Unlike with traditional braces where brushing and flossing are a little more challenging. Traditional braces can create problems with random bits of food getting trapped in tight spaces and under wire/brackets.
When going through the process of having Invisalign set up there’s usually 3d scanning done to get a picture of your mouth. This is a painless procedure that is non invasive and is much more comfortable thank the old fashion impressions method. Those with a strong gag reflex might find the impression method to be uncomfortable. This digital method works by being much less intrusive than traditional X-rays in which one might feel more claustrophobic or uncomfortable.
If you are interested in fixing your teeth through the use of Invisalign aligners you will find that the process to have them created is an easy one. It’s also very convenient to be able to pop them out when you need and it saves you from having a distractedly metal smile every day.If you would like to learn more or set up a consultation appointment with the professionals at Dr. Bita Orthodontic Group today (818) 981-0640.
