Made of clear plastic, Invisalign braces go on the teeth like a pair of mouth guards.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
College Station-based dental practice Cashion Dental recently announced that it will start offering its clients the choice of getting Invisalign braces, instead of the traditional ones. It will be a chance for people to straighten their teeth in a more discreet, less obvious manner.
In the past, dental braces have been synonymous with metal wires run through metal brackets that are glued to the teeth for improving their function and visual appearance. They are meant to straighten teeth by putting steady pressure on the teeth and keeping them in place for a certain amount of time. However, traditional braces are not the prettiest devices to look at. As a result, there have been efforts to produce braces that are not only more aesthetically pleasing, but are also more convenient to use.
Founded in 1997, Invisalign has become synonymous with the concept of "invisible braces." Within the past few decades, the field of dentistry has seen the introduction of smaller and less conspicuous braces. Among them are ceramic braces, which replace the metal of traditional braces with ceramic brackets to blend in to the teeth; and lingual braces, which are made of metal, but are placed behind the teeth instead of at the front. Another benefit of invisible braces are the lack of metal in the mouth, which may cut or injure the tongue and lips.
Invisalign, however, takes it a step further. Made of clear plastic, Invisalign braces go on the teeth like a pair of mouth guards. Thus the average person would barely even notice that the patient is wearing them. Also, the braces are removable; they are replaced every two weeks. This is in sharp contrast with other types of braces, which remain on the teeth until the end of treatment. Cashion Dental currently offers Invisalign as part of its cosmetic services line-up.
