Savannah, GA (PRWEB) April 04, 2017
Although traditional braces remain a common solution for straightening crooked teeth, Invisalign has quickly gained popularity since its 1997 debut. Invisalign offers numerous benefits over traditional braces for many patients, though it is not right for everyone. In April, Savannah Dental Solutions is offering a complimentary Invisalign consultation.
What Is Invisalign?
Billed as “the clear alternative to braces,” Invisalign uses comfortable clear plastic aligners rather than metal brackets and wires to straighten teeth. It gives the patient more control over the process, since aligners can be changed at home rather than in the dentist’s office.
Benefits of Invisalign
Computer Imaging: Invisalign uses 3-D computer modeling to create realistic images of what the teeth will look like at each stage of treatment, as well as the final results. Patients who are hesitant about undergoing such an extensive treatment have the opportunity to see upfront whether Invisalign is worth it for them.
Comfort and Aesthetics: Invisalign users are often surprised by how comfortable the plastic aligners are. There are no pieces of rough metal or tough wires to scrape the inside of the mouth. In addition, Invisalign is virtually invisible. Teens heading to the prom, young adults getting married, and business professionals trying to make a good impression on clients are just a few groups that enjoy the aesthetics of Invisalign over traditional braces.
Lifestyle Factors: Many foods, from candy to popcorn, are difficult or impossible to eat with traditional braces. Invisalign is removable, so users can simply pop out the aligner to consume a favorite food, and then clean the teeth and aligner before putting it back in. The removability also makes Invisalign a great choice for people who enjoy contact sports.
Better Oral Hygiene: Unlike braces, which can be tough to clean around, Invisalign lets wearers maintain their normal oral hygiene routines. Users can remove the aligner, brush and floss as normal, and then clean and replace the aligner. There is no risk of trapping food under the aligner.
Fewer Office Visits: While braces must be adjusted by a dentist, the Invisalign system uses aligners that can be changed at home every two weeks. Most patients need only see the dentist every four to six weeks, and the overall length of treatment is generally shorter than that required by braces.
All-inclusive Pricing: Invisalign has traditionally been costlier than braces, but this is no longer always true. Cosmetic upgrades to braces, such as fashion colors, add to their expense. Adjustments are usually separately billed. Invisalign is an all-inclusive treatment package, making it easy to quickly compare costs. More and more insurance companies are now covering Invisalign as well.
