The Novato, CA Dentist provides Invisalign clear orthodontics to dental patients in need of orthodontic treatment. Invisalign clear aligners provide a discreet option for patients who want to enhance the appearance of their smile by correcting misaligned teeth.
Invisalign straightens teeth using clear plastic aligners, eliminating the need for metal and wire braces. This allows patients to experience a level of comfort and flexibility not available with traditional braces.
Drs. Steven McConnell and Jake Banks of the Novato, CA Dentist office are excited about this innovative orthodontic treatment. “Adults who have alignment issues with their teeth often defer treatment because of the prospect of living with metal braces. They are hesitant because they feel traditional braces will mar their appearance and cause discomfort during treatment. These concerns are eliminated with Invisalign since they are metal free, virtually invisible, and gently straighten teeth.”
As the teeth gradually move into proper alignment, the patient switches to a new aligner at two-week intervals until optimal results are achieved. As with traditional orthodontics, the outcome goes beyond providing just a cosmetic improvement, but also corrects misaligned teeth that may lead to gum disease, gum recession, TMJ discomfort, and other oral health problems. Recent research has shown a link between gum disease and increased rates of cardiovascular disease. Prevention of gum disease by Invisalign is one example of how this new technology can benefit one’s overall health as well.
Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, flexible, BPA-free plastic. An advantage of Invisalign over traditional orthodontics is the fact that they are completely removable for eating, brushing, and flossing. The treatment length is variable but usually requires less than a year for adults.
