4 Advantages Of Using Invisalign To Correct Your Teeth

Dentist Blog

If you have teeth that are not straight and you want to get them fixed, you should talk to your family dentist about using Invisalign braces to fix your teeth. Invisalign braces have been around for decades now and have some distinct advantages over regular braces.

Invisalign Trays Are Easy to Take Care

Invisalign uses a series of trays to help move your teeth into place. You use each set of trays for a couple of weeks before a new set is made. It is easy to take care of each set of trays.

When you brush your teeth, add another minute or two to the time you dedicate to dental care to wash your Invisalign trays. You can clean them using clear liquid soap and a toothbrush; you'll want to dedicate a toothbrush just for washing your trays.

When you eat a meal, put your tray inside of the protective case. Don't wrap it in a napkin you could easily throw away. After your meal, brush your teeth and put the tray back in place.

Taking care of your Invisalign trays is really all about just cleaning them off when you clean your teeth and keeping them safe when you take them out to eat.

Enjoy Your Favorite Foods

With braces, most people have to make significant changes to what they eat in order to avoid spending all day picking food out of your braces. With Invisalign, you are wearing removable trays that you can take out when you eat and put back in after you brush your teeth.

That means you don't have to change your diet. You can continue to eat the same types of foods you were eating before. Straightening your teeth shouldn't require you to make dietary changes, and with Invisalign, you don't have to.

Gentler on Your Overall Dental Health

Wearing braces is not easy on your dental health. The brackets on the braces can easily trap bacteria, plaque, and food, and they can be difficult for even the most hygiene-orientated individuals to keep clean. It is easier to suffer additional dental health issues, such as cavities, when you have braces on.

With Invisalign trays, you can just remove them when you need to eat, brush, and floss. There is no reason for bacteria and plaque to build on your teeth with Invisalign.

Time Savings

Finally, for most people, Invisalign speeds up the process of fixing your teeth. It should not take as long to fix your teeth with Invisalign trays, which are adjusted every two weeks as your teeth shift locations. You will be able to have the teeth you want sooner with Invisalign.

If you want to get your teeth straight, talk to your dentist and see if Invisalign trays, instead of traditional metal braces, are a choice you could pursue.

The Reasons Why You Should Get A Root Canal

Hi, my name is Kevin Nelson and I want to tell you about my experience. I had a painful tooth so I went to see my dentist. After the examination, he said that I needed to have a root canal to save the tooth. I told the dentist to just pull the tooth instead and then he explained why that wasn't a good idea. He said that pulling the tooth would cause additional problems and then he told me what could happen. I didn't want any more problems, so the dentist did the root canal and I'm glad that he did. I wanted to write a blog to tell others about the benefits of a root canal and what to expect during the procedure. I hope that by getting the word out, other people won't make the same mistake that I almost did by getting a perfectly good tooth pulled.
