Highland Family Dentistry

HIGHLAND's favorite Invisalign provider

invisalign treatmentInvisalign is one of American’s favorite orthodontic treatments, offering beautiful results without the need for metal brackets or wires. Invisalign offers a high degree of discretion, another reason why millions of orthodontic patients across the nation have chosen Invisalign as their preferred treatment option.

Invisalign technology works by leveraging a series of clear aligners that are made of an almost invisible polyurethane plastic material. These aligners are removable, and should be removed during eating, brushing, and flossing. An important thing to keep in mind is that while Invisalign aligners are completely removable, you should always keep them in for the outlined amount of time as to get teh full benefit of teh treatment. Some advantage of the Invisalign system include:

  • Improved Oral Health and Hygiene — Given that Invisalign aligners are removable, this system allows you to gave more regular access to your tooth’s surface when brushing as opposed to metal braces.
  • Complete Discretion — Many patients who are seeking full discretion with their orthodontic treatment will turn to Invisalign as their best treatment option. Even at a conversational distance, nobody will be able to tell you have them in!
  • Fewer Food and Drink Restrictions — Braces require patients to restrict their diet as to reduce the amount of food particles that become stuck between the brackets and wires of braces. With Invisalign, these dietary restrictions do not apply as there are no wires or brackets for food to become stuck in.
  • Comfort — The thinness and flexibility of Invisalign aligners make for maximized comfort and wearability, as opposed to metal braces which can often cause discomfort.
  • Protection From Teeth Grinding— If you have a habit of grinding your teeth at night, Invisalign aligners can act as a night-guard, acting as a layer of protection between your top and bottom teeth.

Caring for Your Teeth During Invisalign Treatment

As stated above, Invisalign aligners can be easily removed for brushing and flossing. Be sure to use this to your advantage and clean your teeth often while undergoing your orthodontic treatment with Invisalign! Stick to a smart oral health regimen and be sure to brush and floss after meals and snacks. This will help keep your aligners as clean and possible and minimize the risk of bacteria formation, tooth decay and gum disease. The aligners themselves should be cleaned as well regularly under running water, as well as lightly brushing them with your toothbrush
