If you have been toying with the idea of clear plastic aligners for teeth straightening talk to Dr. George Dental. Having a dentist by your side during treatment time is essential if you want your results to be positive.
If you follow this dental blog in Delray Beach you will recall the dangers of mail order or online braces hopefully steering clear of the temptation opting for Invisalign® instead.
Online Plastic Aligners Not a Good Idea
If you haven’t been following this blog and want a quick summary, removable mail order or online braces are not monitored by a dentist.
This could cause serious complications for your teeth and jawbone growth. In addition not all people are suitable for removable aligners.
With mail order aligners everyone is a candidate making them incredibly unsafe for all concerned. Moreover, there is no dentist to visit every six weeks to check on your progress.
Prescription Clear Plastic Aligners
Dr. George Sanchez is licensed to provide patients with prescription clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign® has been around for decades and is the the Gold Standard when it comes to removable clear braces.
Straight Teeth More Than Esthetic
While you may think the only advantage of straight teeth is looks there are other reasons to use clear plastic aligners from Invisalign for crooked teeth.
Your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist explains that straight teeth are easier to maintain, brush and floss.
Crooked teeth are difficult to brush and floss. This means decay and bacteria have no problem getting into your teeth and gums.
Straight teeth mean healthy teeth and gums because you can keep them cleaner. You will also find it easier to eat and enjoy the foods that you love.
When teeth are too close together, overlap or are too far apart bacteria will thrive loving every minute of your not so perfect smile. When teeth are too close you are also at risk for inflammation and gum disease.
While Invisalign® is the perfect solution for most it is up to Dr. George to decide. As previously mentioned not all people are good fits for clear plastic aligners.
People with severe cross or over bites or large gaps between teeth may do better with conventional wires and brackets.
In addition those who are less diligent may not be suitable as Invisalign® needs to be worn 22 hours every day. The only time the clear plastic aligners are removed is when you eat, drink, brush and floss.
