Invisalign

Invisalign treatment uses a series of custom-made aligners that are switched out every two weeks to move your teeth into the desired position. At Mark Lowe DDS, these clear, plastic trays are made of smooth, BPA-free plastic and are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly closer to the ideal location; over time, these subtle movements add to a big difference in the alignment of your smile.

Unlike traditional orthodontics that use metal wires that limit what foods you can eat, Invisalign’s plastic aligners are removable, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and clean your teeth in a way that wasn’t possible with metal braces. Invisalign can treat many of the same alignment problems as traditional braces, including crowding, spacing issues, overbites, underbites, and cross-bites. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign is a treatment option for most orthodontic problems, including crowded teeth or spacing issues. If you’re wondering if you’re a candidate for Invisalign treatment, schedule a consultation with your orthodontist to find out for sure! They’ll be able to assess the alignment of your teeth and jaw to determine the best treatment for you. A few factors could affect your candidacy for treatment, such as having severely rotated teeth and an impacted tooth that won’t erupt through the gums. In these cases, traditional braces may be a better option than Invisalign. Your orthodontist can make recommendations based on your unique case.

Benefits of Invisalign over Traditional Braces

One of the first benefits of choosing Invisalign over braces is that you can remove Invisalign aligners before eating and drinking. With removable aligners like Invisalign, you don’t have to change your diet or worry about what food you can eat since you can just remove your trays when it’s time to eat. Your diet won’t have to change while you’re getting your teeth straightened, either. Since you can remove the aligners whenever you want to eat or drink, you don’t have to worry about getting food stuck in your brackets and wires. 

Another massive benefit of choosing Invisalign over braces is that you won’t need to have as many appointments with your orthodontist as you would have if you wore braces. The time you need to spend with an Invisalign dentist would be less than the time you would need to commit to if you chose braces instead. This is because Invisalign requires fewer trips to the dentist’s office than traditional braces. 

The Invisalign treatment process takes less time and is more comfortable than conventional orthodontic treatments. To learn more about Invisalign, contact Mark Lowe DDS at 7055 N Fresno St #203, Fresno, CA 93720, or call (559) 435-0966.
