What is Invisalign?
Invisalign corrects overcrowding, overbites and mild to moderate spacing problems with teeth. Invisalign— unlike conventional braces— is preferred by patients because the aligners are virtually invisible. The aligner can even be removed when eating, drinking, brushing teeth or flossing. Invisalign’s discreet teeth-straightening option has minimal impact on a patient’s lifestyle, while still achieving the same results as braces. Invisalign aligners are made from medical grade polyurethane resin (plastic). There are no visible brackets or metal hardware on the teeth. This means there are no sharp metal pieces that can irritate your cheeks or gums.
Invisalign can work for any age. Regular invisalign is designed for patients with permanent teeth, while invisalign teen is designed for teenagers that do not have fully developed teeth yet. Choosing Invisalign vs braces means you will make fewer visits to your dentist and have fewer adjustments made.
While the cost of invisalign can be more expensive than braces, Dr. Ben Fong strives to offer comparative rates. During your free consultation, Dr. Fong will determine if Invisalign is right for you. He makes sure clients have the whole picture before starting this journey. Invisalign is not just about having a nice smile. Correcting crowded teeth and poor bites have a major benefit to your oral health as well as your overall health. Straightening teeth can improve and facilitate oral care such as brushing and flossing. This will help prevent cavities in the long run. Improving poor bites will help with chewing food properly and lastly, improving your jaw and overbite will help improve your air way and decrease the chance of future jaw problems such as TMJ dysfunction.
