it makes sense to visit an invisalign dentist in the Oakville ON area
When teeth are crooked, everything from professional image to social interactions can be impacted by a lack of confidence. The common solution to the problem of misalignment, though, can have the same effect, causing the patient to feel embarrassed to show his or her smile. For the adult with crooked, crowded teeth, the standard option has been to live with an unattractive smile for life or endure bulky braces for a few years. Really, neither seems a good choice. For this reason, it is fortunate to have the opportunity to work with an Invisalign dentist in the Oakville, ON area.
Invisalign has come to be known as a discreet, healthy, convenient way to straighten crooked teeth and even correct problems like overbite or underbite. Initially, this orthodontic system was designed to correct cosmetic imperfections. Through consistent development, today's Invisalign can achieve many of the same goals as bracket and wire orthodontics.
How Invisalign is Different
Traditional orthodontic care is based on the movement of teeth using permanent brackets on individual teeth and an arch wire running through them. Every few weeks, arch wires are tightened in the office setting, maintaining consistent pressure on teeth for progressive movement. For a period of a few years, these frequent adjustments continue.
Invisalign has no brackets, no wires; just clear, plastic aligners that are designed using the latest software. Each aligner is shaped to the position that will prompt continual movement through applied pressure. Every two weeks, aligners are changed for the next set.
Why Patients Choose Invisalign
The obvious reason for the preference for Invisalign is appearance. No one really relishes the idea of having brackets and wires on their teeth every day for many months. When in place, aligners are so discreet that most people do not even notice them.
While appearance is an important aspect of treatment, especially for the adult patient, there are a number of other reasons to choose Invisalign. Due to the fact that there are no wires to tighten, Invisalign treatment is completed with faster office visits. There is also no need to alter your eating habits with Invisalign since aligners can be removed for meals.
