Peninsula Center Of Cosmetic Dentistry – A Platinum Invisalign Provider

Imagine achieving the beautiful, straight, even smile that you’ve always dreamed of-without the need for chunky metal braces!

Invisalign aligners are a discreet and simple method of straightening your teeth and enhancing your smile in such a way that no one has to know about it. They are virtually invisible, and in many cases they work even faster than metal braces.

Read on to find out if Invisalign may be right for you.

Why Are Straight Teeth So Important?

Straight teeth have more to offer than a beautiful smile. When your teeth are straight and your bite is even, your mouth functions more efficiently as a whole.

An uneven bite causes your teeth to crash into each other with more force than is necessary to chew your food. This can case tiny fractures, which can lead to larger breaks and cracks in your teeth

Another benefit to properly aligned teeth is your ability to clean them properly. With an even bite, and your teeth in proper alignment, your toothbrush as well as your dental floss can reach more easily into the crevices of your mouth to properly clean your teeth and gums. When your teeth aren’t cleaned properly you run a greater risk of acquiring gingivitis and other gums diseases.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign aligners consist of clear thin trays that are specifically designed to fit perfectly over your teeth. They slowly adjust your teeth to their proper position. Every 2 weeks you’ll receive new aligners, so that your teeth are gradually shifted into the optimal position for your mouth and jaw.

One of the benefits to Invisalign vs. Braces is the ability to remove the aligners in order to brush and floss your teeth, as well as to eat. This mean you’ll still be able to enjoy the foods you would have to avoid with braces, such as popcorn and caramel.

Compliance is very important with Invisalign however-it is imperative that you wear them as prescribed, up to 22 hours a day. Adults do tend to perform well with Invisalign, since they possess the discipline to adhere to these strict instructions.
