Sometimes referred to as clear braces, Invisalign is a high tech system using a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually correct moderate or mild malocclusion. The aligners are thin, comfortable, and more aesthetically pleasing than conventional wires and brackets.
Healthier Teeth and Gums
Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. These are also signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems.
One of the biggest challenges of having braces is removing all the food that gets trapped in the brackets and wires. This can often lead to plaque buildup and eventually tooth decay. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so it’s easy to continue brushing and flossing your teeth the way you normally do.
