Why Invisalign® Might Be Right for You

Why Invisalign® Might Be Right for You

It’s no secret that one of the main ingredients for a smile that dazzles are teeth that line up perfectly. Aside from this obvious cosmetic improvement, straight teeth also offer many other benefits to your dental health. Now, the road to aligned teeth is made incredibly easy with Invisalign®, which we offer here at Hillsdale Dental Care.

Drs. Magdalena Azzarelli and Roge Jacob, along with the rest of our highly qualified dental team, understand the cosmetic and health benefits that come with straight teeth. We also know that the road to such teeth can be difficult, which is why we offer Invisalign.

Here’s a look at why Invisalign may be right for you.

A discreet road to straight teeth

The primary advantage of Invisalign over traditional metal braces are the clear aligners we use to move your teeth. Gone are the days when you had to flash a mouthful of metal for a year or more as you straightened your teeth. Instead, Invisalign does the job just as well, but with near-invisible aligners that don’t scream, “Braces!”

Whether you’re an adult who needs to function in a boardroom or an adolescent in your homeroom, Invisalign provides you with a discreet solution for straightening teeth.

Keeping it clean

With metal braces, cleaning your teeth is difficult, as the metal brackets and wires get in the way. With Invisalign, all you need to do is pop out the aligners to clean your teeth (or to eat), which allows you to keep your teeth white and bright while you straighten them.

Comfort is key

Metal braces, while effective, have issues when it comes to comfort, such as damage to the soft tissues in your mouth. Invisalign aligners are incredibly comfortable, and they’re designed to fit snugly over your teeth while also protecting your gums and soft tissues at the same time.

Correcting alignment issues

As we mentioned earlier, straight teeth can benefit your dental health in many ways. For example, when you have crooked teeth, they’re more prone to tooth decay and gum disease since they can be harder to clean. 

As well, certain alignment issues can leave you more vulnerable to temporomandibular joint disorders, bruxism (teeth grinding), or difficulty chewing.

With Invisalign, we can correct a host of alignment issues, including:

No matter your alignment issue, the odds are that we can correct it with Invisalign.

Fewer trips to our office

While we always enjoy seeing our clients, when you use Invisalign, you needn’t make many trips to our office. Once we create the digital imaging of your teeth, we send the information off to Invisalign, which manufactures your aligners and sends them directly to your door.

We do want to see you periodically throughout the straightening process to ensure that everything is going according to plan and to make any necessary adjustments.
