When you look in the mirror, do you see a beautiful, straight, shiny smile, or do you see teeth that are crooked or poorly spaced? If you aren’t happy with your smile, you’re not alone. Researchers indicate that as many as 30% of adults aren’t happy with the way their smile looks. In addition to being self-conscious, you may also be suffering from poor oral health. Did you know that the Invisalign product can straighten your teeth and improve your oral health? Here is more information about the benefits of Invisalign.
What Is Invisalign and How Does It Work?
Invisalign is a set of clear, plastic aligners that are specially constructed to fit inside your mouth and no one else’s. These aligners work to straighten out and respace your teeth gradually. The aligners are worn all of the time, except when you are eating or drinking, or brushing your teeth. This is great for people who are worried about eating or drinking with braces because while oral health suffers from braces, it improves with Invisalign.
Invisalign can fix spacing issues, mild overbite issues, or teeth that are crooked. Invisalign shortens the amount of time it takes to fix your teeth by as much as 6 months, which makes them cheaper than braces. Also, Invisalign can help improve your oral health. When your teeth aren’t crowded together, and when they are properly spaced, they are healthier teeth. You’ll be able to brush and floss your teeth more easily after they are treated with the Invisalign process.
