Share Article

North Avenue Advance Dental Center is now offering their patients another option to treat their smile without the use of common braces.

There is another option for patients seeking to straighten their teeth without the need for metal to be installed in their mouth. Invisalign invisible braces can straighten teeth with a simple, painless treatment procedure that does not require any of the hassles that traditional braces can provide. That means no permanent fixtures, no metal and no need to avoid certain foods. Best of all, this amazing procedure can be performed at North Avenue Advanced Dental center by Dr. Walker.

How do Invisalign invisible braces straighten teeth?

Invisalign works on the same principles that traditional metal braces use. They work to gradually straighten out the teeth to achieve the perfect smile with pearly whites that people always wanted by applying minute physical force to shift the way that teeth are set in the mouth.

The major difference with Invisalign is the hardware involved in the process. Instead of having the mouth wired with fixtures, bands, bars and other devices, Dr. Walker at North Avenue Advance Dental Center in Bridgeport, CT creates a custom set of Invisalign trays. These trays are made to fit the mouth and work according to a plan that the patient work out with Dr. Walker and the Invisalign lab. Within just a few weeks wearing Invisalign trays, the patient will begin to notice a difference in the shape of their smile, versus months of conventional braces.

The Benefits of Invisalign Braces for Straightening Teeth

Invisalign braces are an entirely different way of reshaping a smile. This unique system of teeth realignment carries with it a few distinct advantages that traditional metal braces cannot provide.

A brief list of benefits unique to the Invisalign procedure can be found below:

  •     No metal in the mouth. – Although the types and shapes of metal used in dental work has changed, some patients still complain about pain, discomfort and a funny taste that persists all the way up until their orthodontic devices are removed. Invisalign offers freedom from all of that. Any discomfort that patients might encounter is temporary and usually subsides within a few days of starting a new set of brace trays.
  •     They’re entirely discreet. – The main drawback that metal braces harbor for most patients is the fact that they can be seen any time they open the mouth. While seeking to have a better bite isn’t anything to be ashamed of, some patients may want to hide the fact that they’re receiving treatment because they feel embarrassed. Invisalign sidesteps this with trays that are nearly invisible and almost unnoticeable. The people that know about braces may consist of just the patient and Dr. Walker.
  •     No need to refrain from eating certain foods. – Some food has a nasty habit of getting stuck in metal braces. There’s enough nooks and crannies created by metal orthodontics to allow for even the smallest piece of leafy greens to become an eyesore to anyone’s almost perfect smile. Invisalign doesn’t suffer from this, as there are no permanent fixtures for food to hide in. The patient also does not have to avoid certain sticky or hard foods because they are worried that they may ruin an expensive orthodontic procedure.
