It is never too late to improve the health of Daly City smiles with Invisalign
Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for adolescents anymore; an increasing number of adults are straightening their teeth without taking on a mouth full of metal. With longer life expectancies than past generations, and an ever-increasing pressure to looks one’s best, many adults are seeking the health and aesthetic benefits of straighter teeth and a better bite.
Patient friendly Invisalign
The Invisalign system is the high-tech, discreet way to straighten teeth. A series of transparent, BPA-free, plastic aligner trays gently move teeth into place. The trays are essentially invisible when worn, and can be removed when necessary, so they have a minimal impact on patients’ lifestyles. Fewer office visits and shorter appointments during treatment is a timesaving advantage over traditional treatment.
Although most adults are seeking the aesthetic benefits of straightening their teeth, improved alignment provides a number of health and psychosocial benefits as well:
Improved oral health and resistance to periodontal disease
Studies show that malocclusion (misaligned teeth) reduce the potential for effective oral hygiene and natural cleansing by saliva. Thereby, malocclusion can contribute to the buildup of plaque, increasing the risk of periodontal (gum) disease and dental decay. Proper alignment helps the gum tissue fit around the teeth securely and makes it easier for patients to brush and floss effectively, which promotes healthy teeth and gums.
Bite refers to the way the upper and lower teeth fit together; they must mesh properly for optimal function. A bad bite can make biting, chewing, and speaking difficult, cause unnecessary wear on the teeth, and has the potential to cause jaw discomfort. Invisalign aligners can correct crossbite, open bite, underbite, and overbite. Treatment can restore functionality, comfort, and protect the teeth from excessive wear.
Improved dental and facial aesthetics
Numerous studies have shown that misalignment can be a social and professional handicap. Social reaction to the appearance of the teeth can have a significant psychosocial impact, affecting the way others treat an individual and the way that person feels about him or herself. Invisalign treatment can straighten the teeth and correct the bite thereby transforming the entire face and smile.
