Discover The Benefits Of Invisalign

Invisalign is an orthodontic method for straightening teeth that has several advantages over other options. Some of Invisalign’s distinct benefits include being discreet, comfortable, and removable. Dr. Rand Luka or Dr. Alyson Kohlmeier, the experienced dentists at Luka Dental Care in London, ON, can determine if Invisalign would work for you.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign differs from other teeth-straightening methods, such as braces, because it utilizes custom aligner trays to move the teeth rather than wires, brackets, and bands. Invisalign can successfully straighten crooked teeth, close small gaps in your smile, and correct minor bite alignment problems. More serious orthodontic issues are best treated with braces. One of our skilled dentists can determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign when you visit our office in London.

During your Invisalign treatment, you will wear several sets of aligner trays custom-made specifically for you. Each set includes two trays, which fit comfortably over the top and bottom rows of teeth. A set of trays is worn for a few weeks at a time before being replaced with the next set in the series. The aligner trays similarly move the teeth as braces by gently exerting pressure on the teeth to nudge them in the desired direction.

Invisalign’s aligner trays are made of flexible plastic material so there is nothing sharp or hard to poke or irritate the mouth. In addition to being comfortable, the trays are also clear so they are practically invisible. These are just some of the many benefits of straightening your smile with Invisalign.

Benefits of Invisalign 

Invisalign has become a popular choice for straightening smiles. One of the reasons it is preferred by so many patients is that it offers numerous benefits. Some of the primary advantages and benefits of Invisalign include:

Discreet: The aligner trays are made of a clear material, making them almost invisible to others.

Comfortable: The aligner trays are made from a soft, flexible plastic material, making them comfortable to wear.

Removable: Trays can be removed temporarily for up to two hours a day, such as when eating or brushing and flossing.

Better Oral Hygiene: The ability to remove the trays when eating means there is no risk of food getting caught in them. It is also easier to achieve more thorough teeth cleaning since the trays can be taken out to brush and floss.

Fewer Food Restrictions: Patients can enjoy greater dietary choices without worrying about damaging the aligners or getting food stuck in them since they can be removed when eating.

Protection: The aligner trays help protect teeth from being worn down due to grinding or clenching, especially in patients with bruxism.

Invisalign offers numerous benefits. Not only is it a highly effective method for straightening your smile, but it is also comfortable and discreet. Plus, the aligner trays are removable!
