Invisalign® Clear AlignersStatistically speaking, roughly 50 percent of all people will need dental alignment correction at some point in their lives. For many, teens especially, this means several years of wearing metal braces.
Solano Dental Group of Fairfield, CA offers an alternative to metal braces in the form of Invisalign® clear aligners. Invisalign is a form of dental alignment technology that gently straightens teeth through the use of custom-molded clear aligners.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?For patients that only need minor adjustment, Invisalign is a slam dunk. The consultation and fitting process is much easier and more comfortable for patients of all ages, and the aligners don't interfere with routine oral hygiene practices like brushing and flossing.
During this process, you are even shown a customized video depicting the changes to your teeth that Invisalign will produce.
For younger patients, Solano Dental Group provides Invisalign Teen, which offers more flexibility to meet the needs of teeth that may still be developing.
Comfort & ConvenienceThe primary benefit to Invisalign is that they are easy to take in or out and avoid many of the problems inherent with traditional metal braces, such as eating all your favorite meals without concern.
Having a mouth full of semi-permanent metal brackets and wires may get the job done, but they can be unsightly and cause discomfort for some patients. Furthermore, they limit your options when it comes to eating, as many types of food can get stuck in the contours between metal and teeth.
Oral HygieneAs previously mentioned, traditional braces create small, hard to reach gaps between the brackets and teeth that food particles can easily get lodged in.
Unfortunately, this also means that routine hygienic practices can be more difficult. Brushing and flossing may no longer adequately reach those places, leaving your teeth vulnerable to plaque buildup and decay.
The easily removable aligners used by Invisalign pop right out when you need them to, giving you the freedom to clean the trays and your teeth with the care they deserve.
