Top reasons to visit your dentist in the Walled Lake area for Invisalign treatment


By
There are many teens and adults who have wished for straighter teeth, but have avoided visiting their orthodontist because the idea of years of wearing metal braces is simply too unappealing. The advances that have occurred in dentistry in the past decade have changed the way tooth-straightening takes place. Many of our patients are now finding that they can see the improvements they desire in their smiles using the Invisalign aligner method.

An experienced dentist in the Walled Lake area, Dr. Bernstein has helped many of his patients handle misalignment without the common stresses that can come from conventional orthodontics. By using clear plastic aligners instead of cemented-on metal brackets and wires, it is possible to achieve beautiful results while enjoying great advantages.

  • Invisalign is more than cosmetic braces. This system has been improved upon, allowing patients to have bite issues corrected.
  • Aligning teeth not only improves the smile, but also leads to more functional chewing, an improved digestive process, and better overall health.
  • Properly aligned teeth mean fewer hidden places where bacteria can collect. Straight teeth can be cleaned easily and more efficiently, facilitating optimal oral health.
  • Invisalign contains only BPA-free clear plastic, no metal. This means there will not be uncomfortable appointments for tightening wires and no sharp edges poking cheek tissues.
  • Because there is no need to tighten wires, Invisalign requires fewer dental visits. We see our patients only about every six weeks to monitor the progression of movement and follow up on the health of teeth and gums.
  • Removable aligners make it easier to successfully brush and floss teeth, keeping oral health optimal throughout treatment. Conventional orthodontic treatment has a higher instance of demineralization of teeth due to difficulty with oral hygiene. Taking aligners out to brush and floss as recommended greatly reduces the possibility of cavities and gum disease.
  • Removable aligners also allow continued freedom in terms of diet. With traditional braces, food choices are limited to protect brackets and wires from damage.
  • Invisalign aligners are designed based on the specific dentition and needs of each patient, making this truly customized care.
  • Results from Invisalign treatment often occur faster than with traditional braces.
  • Straightening misaligned teeth reduces pressure on the joints in the jaw, which can help to alleviate the symptoms of TMJ disorder.
