Advantages of using invisible aligners to straighten a Knoxville area smile
There is often a negative stigma regarding adults and traditional orthodontics. Dr. Pablo Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts in Knoxville understands that many patients who need to align their teeth may avoid doing so because of the appearance of metal bracket and wire braces covering the smile. Thanks to improved technologies and newer techniques in treating malocclusion, Knoxville area patients can now enjoy a more discreet method of improving the smile using invisible aligners.
Invisalign invisible aligners are commonly considered by teen and adult patients who want a less visible way of straightening their teeth. Traditional orthodontics requires a special dentist to glue brackets to the teeth and work wire throughout to slowly reposition them. Instead, patients can use invisible aligners to accomplish the same results.
Invisible aligners are made of high quality, medical-grade clear plastic. Using custom impressions of the natural teeth, an entire series of trays are made. Patients wear each tray for two weeks before switching to the next one, and over the course of treatment, the teeth will gradually be repositioned into their appropriate spaces. Invisalign can be used to address both crooked teeth and a misaligned bite.
Dr. Foncea suggests aligners for many reasons, as they have a variety of benefits. Not only are they discreet, but they are just as effective as traditional orthodontics. They can help patients maintain better oral health, as they are removable, which allows easy brushing and flossing after meals. Invisalign aligner trays are durable and work with any lifestyle. Patients wear them during the day and night, and only remove them for cleaning and eating.
