The benefits of Invisalign go way beyond straight teeth. In fact, Invisalign can also boost your confidence.
Many patients don't think to ask their dentist at Upland Dental about Invisalign because they don't understand all of the benefits they have to offer. However, as your trusted family dentist, we're here to help.
In this article, we discuss the benefits of Invisalign including easier visits to the orthodontist, better hygiene than braces, and more. Continue reading to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a newer alternative to traditional braces that are made out of medical-grade resin. The resin is clear, making it practically invisible to those around you.
Each set of these invisible aligners are custom-made to help shift your teeth to where they need to be. Your dentist in Upland does this by taking scans of your teeth.
Once ready, your orthodontist performs a fitting to makes sure everything is where it needs to be. They will then instruct you to wear these at least 22 hours a day and between meals. While 22 hours a day seems like a lot, it's necessary to get the beautifully straight teeth you want.
Whether you're looking for a dentist in Wildomar, Rancho Cucamonga, Chino, or Upland, our team can get you quickly on your way to enjoying the benefits listed below.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
If you have a dentist in Rancho Cucamonga who is part of our Upland Dental team, you are well on your way to enjoying the many benefits Invisalign has to offer. That's because we have plenty of experience working with these invisible aligners and can answer any questions you have.
As our dentist in Chino will tell you, Invisalign has a lot to offer including straighter teeth. Crooked teeth can lead to a variety of other health issues including gum disease, bad breath, and cavities.
Instead of waiting for these problems to occur and correcting them with painful procedures such as a root canal or a dental implant, it's easier to prevent them. This includes issues with overbites and underbites.
These issues can result in jaw pain that can make chewing difficult. Over time, jaw pain can worsen or teeth grinding can occur. Invisalign will help bring your jaw back into alignment and alleviate these issues.
One of the top complaints we hear about traditional metal braces has to do with discomfort. The sharp edges of the metal are uncomfortable and can cut into your lips and inner cheeks. Invisalign has smooth edges that don't rub or dig into your skin.
Plus, our skilled dentist in Wildomar is great at making you as comfortable as possible when it comes to all dental procedures. This includes a visit to our orthodontist. Our years of experience make sure you get the most comfortable, custom fit with Invisalign.
Unlike traditional braces or dental implants, Invisalign can be cleaned at any time. The fact that they are removable is one of the biggest benefits of Invisalign. Bits of food or plaque that build up along your gums with traditional braces can lead to bad breath, gum disease, and/or tooth decay.
Once removed, you are free to brush and floss your teeth as you would normally. Plus, there's no need for any special equipment.
Our dentist in Wildomar also recommends making sure to clean the inside of your aligners and case. Make sure to do this daily to avoid any bacteria buildup. Brushing the aligners after every meal and do a 30 minute hydrogen peroxide soak daily will help keep them clean.
If you or someone you know has had braces, you understand the extensive process involved with fittings.
Fortunately, as our dentist in Rancho Cucamonga will tell you, this isn't necessary with Invisalign. Advancements in our technology mean that we can collect 3D prints of your teeth without goopy impressions.
Your family dentist at Upland Dental will be the first to tell you how Invisalign will give you a huge boost in your self-confidence. Feeling confident in your smile is a great step toward feeling confident in all aspects of your life.
Not only will you enjoy the benefits of straighter teeth, but you can do so without uncomfortable and less attractive metal braces. No one will know you are wearing Invisalign aligners if you don't tell them or show them.
No Food or Drink Limitations
It's likely that you or a friend has heard their orthodontist say "you can't eat ______ with braces." One of the benefits of Invisalign is that there are no food or drink restrictions.
This is because you can remove your aligners while you eat and then put your aligners back in. However, before putting them back in, our dentist in Chino recommends brushing your teeth.
