Dentist in Oakville, ON Offering Effective Orthodontic Solutions for Patients
posted by Burloak Centre Dentistry
The team at Burloak Centre Dentistry in Oakville, ON understand that patients want straight, beautifully white teeth. The fact is that not all patients can achieve this naturally and some patients will suffer from misalignment. This misalignment affects a patient’s smile and causes it to not look its best. Because of this, many patients seek out orthodontic solutions such as braces. The good news is that there are solutions out there for patients who suffer from less significant orthodontic issues which don’t require bulky metal components and wires, such as traditional braces. One such option that is offered by Dr. Shefali Tuli and her team is the Invisalign system.
Straightening teeth is often done with metal brackets and wires. This is the traditional method of orthodontia. The brackets are glued onto the front or sometimes the back of the teeth (lingual braces) and are linked together with a wire. This wire helps in slowly adjusting the teeth back in alignment.
Traditional orthodontia is best for patients with moderate to severe misalignment of the smile, including patients who want to achieve better bite alignment. But this is not the only way to achieve that beautiful smile.
The benefits offered by the Invisalign treatment solution go beyond just a bright and beautiful smile. Invisalign uses clear removable dental trays which can be removed at any time, unlike traditional braces. Invisalign is comfortable and pain-free. The ADA has found that straightening teeth will impact a patient’s overall oral health, including reduced tooth decay and reducing a patient’s risk for gum disease.
The Invisalign solution is not just for correcting teeth which are gapped, crowded or crooked. Invisalign can also correct an abnormal bite (where there upper and lower jaws do not come together correctly). Bite problems which remain uncorrected can cause development of oral health complications down the line including cavities, gum infections and tooth enamel erosion.
Designed for Comfort
An effective alternative to metallic braces, Invisalign aligners are quickly becoming the most chosen removable dental aligner on the market. Invisalign aligners will shift teeth into a proper alignment gently and gradually, without the use of metal brackets or wires. Instead, Invisalign aligners are constructed using medical-grade polyurethane that is invisible to the naked eye. Because the Invisalign aligners can be removed at any time, this makes daily tasks such as eating and brushing your teeth incredibly simple. You won’t be wasting time removing pieces of food from this solution as you would with metal braces.
Invisalign aligners fit smoothly into your mouth and have no jagged edges, providing a completely comfortable experience. They also provide greater control in straightening your teeth and are custom-made to fit your mouth. This isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution like some of the over the counter aligners you may find. You also won’t have to make repeated trips to the dentist. With Invisalign you need to make that trip just once every four to six weeks with the entire process typically lasting about a year in total. That’s just 3 to 4 dental visits throughout!
A Boost in Self-Confidence
There’s evidence that patients of all ages benefit from the Invisalign solution due to a boost in self-confidence. This is especially true in teenagers who, traditionally, have had to endure some levels of embarrassment when showing up to social situations sporting bulky metal braces or, in some cases, head gear. It’s been found that teenagers who experience a lack of self-confidence can find themselves affected by depression. With Invisalign, not only will their smiles be corrected, but nobody even has to know they are wearing the Invisalign aligners. Because of this, an increasing number of teens have begun choosing Invisalign over any other option on the market.
No matter your age, if you have tooth misalignment or a bite problem, you should look into the Invisalign clear aligner solution. It will allow you to smile with self-confidence again while knowing that your oral health is in quality condition. Invisalign provides effective and proven results in correcting a number of dental issues including:
