Reasons To Visit Your Invisalign® Dentist in Scottsdale

If you are looking for a discreet way to straighten your teeth in Scottsdale, Invisalign® is one of the options to consider. It allows you to deal with teeth alignment issues that can ruin the smile’s appearance and leave you more vulnerable to oral problems like gum disease and tooth decay.

Reasons to see an Invisalign® dentist near Scottsdale

The discreet nature of Invisalign® clear aligners is only one of the many benefits those who opt for this treatment get. Other reasons to visit a dentist who can fit you with these clear aligners include the following:

1. A more comfortable experience

Another great benefit that comes with Invisalign® is the increased comfort it provides. The aligner trays used exert a precise amount of force on each tooth. That leads to less pain and discomfort as teeth are moved toward a better position. Each tray is worn for two weeks, then it is switched out with another that pushes each tooth a bit closer to the desired position. This gradual increase in force applied to the wearer’s teeth make clear aligners like Invisalign® a lot more comfortable than traditional metal braces.

Traditional metal braces consist of wires and brackets that are tightened to apply a uniform amount of force on the patient’s teeth. The wires are tightened once a month, which means the discomfort starts again every time the wires are tightened. With clear aligners, the patient might experience discomfort for a couple of days before the teeth become used to the aligners, then it is smooth sailing until the tray is replaced with another.

2. The appliance can be easily removed

Unlike traditional braces, which are permanently fixed in place once installed by a dentist, Invisalign® aligners can be easily removed by the patient. That means patients can take out the device when it is time for oral hygiene or meals.

Those who opt for braces have no choice but to perform these tasks with the appliance in the mouth. It often leads to food particles being stuck on the brackets and wires, and those same wires and brackets get in the way when it is time to clean the mouth. It leaves the wearer more susceptible to tooth decay, something those who opt for braces do not have to worry about.

3. Less supervision

Another benefit that comes with fixing teeth alignment issues with clear aligners like Invisalign® is the fact it requires less dental supervision. People who get traditional braces often have to see the dentist once a month for inspection, while Invisalign® patients only have to see the dentist once every few months. That means those who opt for Invisalign® have to miss less time from school or work due to their treatment.
