Title: Why choose Invisalign over Traditional Braces?


1
Why choose Invisalign over Traditional Braces?
2
Not all people have straight perfect teeth.
Sometimes, they have crooked, crowded, unevenly
spaced or even misaligned teeth. Oftentimes,
these flaws deliver a direct hit to your
self-confidence thus affecting your ability to
smile and socialize with other people. These
flaws do not only affect your ability to
socialize but also your dental health. Crooked,
crowded, or
3
misaligned teeth are hard to clean thus can lead
to tooth decay or gum diseases. Misaligned teeth,
on the other hand, can interfere with your
ability to chew foods properly and enunciate
words correctly. Therefore, it is important to
have well-aligned set of teeth. Overcrowding of
teeth is usually corrected with dental extraction
while crooked,
4
unevenly spaced or misaligned teeth
(malocclusion) are corrected using an orthodontic
equipment called dental braces. They move teeth
to ideal position resulting to a more beautiful
and healthier smile. Traditional dental braces
are made of metal brackets that are attached to
your teeth with the use of an adhesive and are
connected by wires.
5
This requires periodic visit to your orthodontist
to adjust the tightness so that the pressure will
straighten your teeth. For patients who are vain
and wanted to straighten their teeth without
being called metal mouth, you may want to
discuss with your orthodontist if you are a
possible candidate for Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign is a set of custom-fitted clear
aligners that is utilized to straighten teeth. It
is also called known as the invisible braces.
Invisalign is hardly visible to others as
compared to the traditional braces. This
equipment helps preserve your smile while
straightening your teeth. The course of treatment
in using Invisalign involves taking pictures of
your teeth
7
using an x-ray, a bite registration and polyvinyl
siloxane of your teeth and gums. The impressions
are sent in the dental laboratory to create a
three-dimensional computer projection of how the
teeth would move over the course of treatment.
This projection is then used as basis for
creating custom-fitted Invisalign.
8
These aligners are replaced every two weeks
thats why they are costly. Reasons for choosing
Invisalign over traditional braces are they are
invisible they are less painful than the
traditional braces
9
they do not aggravate your gums like traditional
braces schedule of treatment is well-established
since they are replaced every two
weeks   http//www.dentalcareofpomona.com
