Do you need correction for an overbite or other issues with crowded or gaping teeth, but are nervous about traditional orthodontics? Whether you’re an adult concerned with looking professional in the work place, or a child trying to fit in at school, metal braces can be a cumbersome form of dental care for anyone at any age. Metal braces can hold even more problems than many of us realize, but fortunately, recent advances in other forms of treatment allow for more alternative answers to bite problems than ever before. With an Invisalign system from our Garden City Park dentist at the Gentle Dentist you can receive a healthier and more beautiful smile in a manner that you can feel comfortable with inside and out.
Tradtional metal braces create a lot more problems than a small blow to your self-confidence, these forms of orthodontistry can actually cause problems for your oral health, even as they treat your bite problems. Metal braces can often be uncomfortable for many of the patients who choose to be treated with them, often causing irritation and canker sores on the insides of your cheeks. Not only are metal braces uncomfortable but they can also be unhealthy due to the complication of the metal rigging they utilize for treatment. Traditional braces require special care and tools to do so, requiring patients to put up with tedious amounts of cleaning to stop plaque and tarter from building up on the intricate work of wires and bands, otherwise advanced stages of tooth decay can follow.
With Invisalign these problems disappear, as does the look of your dental treatment. This system of oral retainers is made of clear plastic, comfortable and snug to be worn all day with ease, and without anyone ever knowing about it. These retainers are made from molds of your own teeth, and are crafted to be replaced every two weeks by your Garden City Park dentist to further along your treatment. Invisalign can treat bite problems, as well as issues with teeth placement such as gaps and overcrowding to give you a beautiful smile. The latest advances in Invisalign treatments now allows for these retainers to be fitted with bands for treatment of more advanced bite problems than ever before, allowing ever more malocclusion suffers to receive treatment in a comfortable and easy way. Invisalign is easily removed for simple cleaning at the end every day, making it easy for you to keep your mouth healthy while you work to improve healthy chewing and eating habits by treating your bite problems. At the Gentle Dentist we are fully certified and highly experienced in providing Invisalign treatments to give you a beautiful smile in a simple way for a healthier you.
