Benefits of orthodontics and invisible braces for Knoxville residents
There are many reasons patients may consider orthodontics for their smile. Perhaps they have misaligned, crooked teeth that are reducing their biting and chewing efficiency. Maybe they are dealing with spaces and gaps between teeth in the dental arch, and want to improve the overall cosmetics of their smile. Patients may also be dealing with bite misalignment that is causing unnecessary wear and tear on their natural teeth. No matter what the reason, the team at Sequoyah Dental Arts is proud to offer orthodontics such as invisible braces for Knoxville area residents.
Invisalign uses clear aligner trays to reposition the teeth. These trays are worn day and night by patients. They are discreet, and they do not cover the smile with embarrassing metal as traditional braces do.
Invisalign orthodontics has several benefits to patients over conventional metal braces, including:
Invisalign aligner trays are molded to the teeth and are made of comfortable, yet durable, medical-grade plastic. They are smooth, and will not rub or cause discomfort to the inside of the mouth as traditional brackets and wires commonly do.
Ease of Use
Teenagers and adults can use Invisalign. They are easy to snap into place, and are removable for eating and drinking. Compliance is important for patients to see the results they desire in the designated period.
Patients often experience better oral health during their orthodontic treatment with Invisalign. Traditional brackets and wires can be difficult to brush and floss around, leaving the smile at risk for periodontal disease and cavities. Invisalign aligner trays are removable to allow easy access to the teeth and gums for cleaning and care.
Patients with conventional braces are often unable to eat and enjoy some of their favorite candies and foods, such as popcorn and taffy. Since Invisalign aligners are removable for eating, patients have no restrictions on what they can eat!
Invisalign orthodontics is often comparable in price with traditional braces. When patients have the choice between metal bracket and wire orthodontia or clear aligner trays, many prefer the advantages offered by Invisalign.
