Thinking about straightening your smile, but don’t like how traditional braces look and how long it seems some others are stuck in their braces? You’re not alone. Many of our Toledo area patients are interested in teeth straightening but have these same concerns. That is why Dr. Nechvatal recommends a more comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and modern alternative: Invisalign.
Invisalign operates on the same orthodontic principles as traditional braces but achieves results differently, often times much faster and with more comfort and convenience than many think possible. Invisalign aligners are custom fit to be practically invisible, smooth and comfortable to wear. The aligners gently and gradually shift your teeth into place. They are easy to remove for brushing and flossing, and often do a lot of their work at night while you are sleeping. For best results, you’ll be wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours of the day.
You’ll visit your Invisalign dentist less often than you would a traditional orthodontist’s office, and you could achieve your results and be out of your aligners in nearly half the time you’d be in traditional braces. And with over 20 years worth of research, 4 million cases of experience and more than 700 patents behind each Invisalign treatment, you can trust that Invisalign can deliver the results you and your dentist are looking for.
Straighter, prettier smiles… are also healthier, lest costly smiles. Teeth straightening comes with the added, though truly even more important benefits of healthier teeth and gums, better overall health and easier oral hygiene and maintenance. Simply put, studies have repeatedly shown that properly aligned teeth are easier to care for, which in turn dramatically reduces unwanted bacteria and infection within the mouth and therefore keeps it out of the body. Properly aligned teeth also encourage the gums to fit strongly around the teeth, therefore offering the strongest defense against periodontal problems. And properly aligned teeth also correct improper bite or chewing issues, which reduces wear and tear on teeth and enamel – potentially reducing the chances you’ll need to repair worn or cracked teeth as often in the future.
Invisalign can correct misalignment, overcrowding, unwanted gaps, cross bite, open bite and more! Is Invisalign right for you? Call (419) 866-4271 to book a consultation at Light Touch Dental Care, your Invisalign dentist, today!
