Achieve a Healthier, More Even Smile with Subtle Invisalign
A straighter smile can improve your overall oral health, as well as your appearance and self-confidence. Nevertheless, you may have put off orthodontic care because you are worried that braces will be noticeable and embarrassing. With several types of orthodontic treatment available, Dr. Gary Nack proudly offers Invisalign at his Holland, PA, dental practice. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten teeth, making the treatment less noticeable than other orthodontic appliances. At the same time, it offers the same long-term benefits, giving you straighter teeth and improved dental function for years to come
Determining Your Candidacy for Invisalign
In the past, Invisalign had limited applications, but today the treatment can address most of the same problems as standard braces. These orthodontic concerns include:
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Overlapping teeth
- Rotated or tipped teeth
- Open bites
Dr. Nack only treats minor to moderate alignment issues. For more pronounced cases, he will refer you to an orthodontist for specialized treatment. Of course, before beginning any type of orthodontia, he will need to treat current gum disease, cavities, and other types of dental damage.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Both traditional braces and Invisalign can enhance your appearance and reduce your risk for certain dental conditions, such as decay and TMJ disorder. At the same time, Invisalign offers unique advantages, making it an outstanding option for qualified patients.
- Subtlety: Perhaps the biggest advantage is that Invisalign trays are so discreet. The clear, stain-resistant plastic is almost undetectable even at close range. Therefore, your orthodontic care is less likely to cause embarrassment or to interfere at big events like a professional meeting or high school prom.
- Comfort: Invisalign trays are quite comfortable. They will sit securely around your teeth, producing less pressure than standard braces. They are also smooth, so they will not irritate the inside of your mouth.
- Convenience: Not only will you remove your aligners to switch to the next in the series. You can also take them out to eat and brush your teeth. Therefore, you will not have restrictions on your diet, as you would with traditional braces. You will also face less risk of cavities since you can clean your teeth more thoroughly, and food will not be trapped beneath the appliances.
