What is Invisalign?
Many patients at Anacapa Dental in Oxnard have been improving their smiles with Invisalign. Invisalign is an alternative to traditional metal braces, providing you with a series of clear, BPA-free plastic aligners that you wear in order to correct imperfections in the spacing of your teeth. With a specialized treatment plan directed by expert prosthodontist Dr. Jivraj, your teeth will gradually get shifted into place without the unsightly and intrusive inconvenience of traditional braces. The best news is the Invisalign system uses a clear aligner so it is virtually impossible for others to notice when you have it on. Because the aligner is removable, care of your teeth doesn’t drastically change from your normal routine, and you don’t have to wear it when making that presentation at your next board meeting.
Invisalign has the added benefits of being easier on your gums and cheeks than braces can be. As there is no sharp metal protruding inside your mouth, the chances of getting cut are drastically less as reported by his Ventura Invisalign patients. The level of comfort in comparison with braces is similar to comparing a night of sleep on your mattress to sleeping on a bed of nails. Plus, Invisalign can actually take less time to correct your dental misalignment.
Overall, there is no better method to repair your smile without drastically altering your life than the Invisalign system. Many celebrities, business leaders, politicians and other prominent members of society have corrected their smile using the Invisalign system, successfully ridding themselves of imperfections such as spacing, straightness and other conditions that clear aligners can treat.
Braces, Veneers and Invisalign in Oxnard
Braces are metal brackets that are glued to each tooth; wires and rubber bands connect these brackets together and are tightened to bring your teeth into the desired position. This process commonly takes longer than Invisalign to achieve its’ desired result and generally causes more pain and discomfort. Braces also make it difficult to eat certain foods and the hard metal wires can result in painful mouth sores. Although they have proven successful in straightening teeth, the annoyance and discomfort as well as how conspicuous they are have lead many people search out among the best Invisalign Oxnard has to offer, Anacapa Dental Art Institute.
Veneers are very thin “shells” placed on the front side of your teeth, they are used to improve your appearance but aren’t actually used to correct periodontal problems so any underlying problems may get worse because they aren’t being treated, just covered up. To apply veneers requires taking off the surface enamel of your teeth, this is irreversible. Veneers need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years so become very expensive for those looking for a permanent improvement in their smile. Certain foods should be avoided such as red wine, coffee and tea to prevent staining.
