When Should You Consider Dental Invisalign?

If crooked teeth are affecting your bite, wearing on your gums, bothering your jaw muscles, affecting your speech, or lowering your confidence to the point where you don’t want to smile, you may need help from braces to fix your teeth. At Smile Park Dental, we are dedicated to getting your smile looking as great and bright as possible, and making sure your oral health is good along the way. 


 When you need braces to straighten your teeth and improve your smile, you may grimace at the thought of metal braces. In previous years, metal braces were your only choice. Not everyone is satisfied with metal braces. There is no need to worry, now, you can choose a new, revolutionary solution, Invisalign braces. 


What is Dental Invisalign?

What exactly is Invisalign, how is it different from regular braces and why is it considered an alternative to metal braces? Invisalign is a type of braces that uses clear trays to align your teeth. Invisalign is very effective but like regular braces, takes time to move the teeth. 

Invisalign moves your teeth by using aligner trays that have been made especially for your mouth. The trays fit over your teeth and securely slide into their desired position. The teeth will be moved gradually, over a set period of time that your dentist will be able to calculate. 

Invisalign is easy to handle for an individual, as you can simply slide them in over your teeth and take them out to brush and clean. There are no metal wires involved, and you can take them out whenever you need to. Food will not get stuck in Invisalign as it does in metal braces. Invisalign is known for getting good results quickly. 


When Should You Consider Dental Invisalign?

You should consider getting Invisalign braces when you have:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gap Between teeth
  • Relapse after braces
  • Crowded teeth
  • Underbite and overbite
  • Crossbite and Open bite


When you use Invisalign, you will discover it has several advantages. 

You will discover Invisalign is very comfortable. The aligner trays are smooth and easy to fit into your mouth. The trays won’t irritate or cut your gums as metal braces can sometimes do. You can also brush your teeth easier since you can take the trays out of your mouth. 

Unlike metal braces, Invisalign is practically invisible. This type of dental solution to crooked teeth is transparent. You will be able to have your teeth straightened without everyone knowing you are having treatment. 

The clear aligner trays are checked every couple of weeks, sometimes every week, so the treatment moves along quickly. Remember your dentist can discuss your personal Invisalign treatment plan with you so you know how long it would take for you.
