Many of our patients come to see Dr. Barakat looking for ways to straighten their smiles. Crooked teeth are more than just a cosmetic concern. In fact, crooked teeth can cause a variety of symptoms like tension headaches and jaw pain. This is because when your teeth are not properly aligned, all of your dental structures are placed underneath additional pressure which can cause discomfort. Dr. Barakat often recommends Invisalign to patients looking for a discreet method of straightening their smile. Here are some frequently asked questions about Invisalign:
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system of removable aligners that gradually applies pressure to your smile and encourages your teeth to shift into a straighter position. They are made of clear, plastic material that offers patients the ability to discreetly undergo mild to moderate orthodontic treatment. Patients love Invisalign because they are able to maintain their natural smile aesthetics throughout treatment and avoid the inconveniences of having traditional braces.
What orthodontic concerns can Invisalign help with?
Invisalign can be used to treat a range of orthodontic concerns including gaps between teeth, uneven teeth, misaligned teeth, protrusive teeth, and crowded teeth.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Besides offering patients the ability to maintain their natural smile aesthetics throughout treatment, Invisalign offers a variety of other benefits as well. Because you are able to remove your Invisalign aligner, this means you will have no dietary restrictions as you undergo treatment. With traditional braces, we often encourage patients to avoid excessively crunchy or chewy foods because this can damage the bracket and wires. However, with Invisalign, you can remove the aligner to eat and drink throughout the day. Additionally, this makes for easier oral hygiene care compared to traditional braces. Simply remove the aligner to brush and floss whenever you need to.
