Orthodontic treatment doesn't have to be uncomfortable and unappealing. Invisalign from your dentists, Dr. Chad Olson and Dr. Neda Falak of Olson Dental in Prior Lake, MN offer several advantages over traditional braces.
They're Almost Invisible
Traditional orthodontic treatment often means metal wires. Invisalign uses clear plastic trays to slowly shift your teeth into their new position. The clear aligners are almost invisible so that you can fix your teeth without getting unwanted attention.
They're More Comfortable
The clear Invisalign aligners are comfortable. You won't have to deal with uncomfortable dental appointments to tighten your braces. No rough edges will irritate your mouth when you get Invisalign from our Prior Lake dentists. They're easy to put on and take off too. As you progress in your treatment, you move through various phases of clear aligners. Every two weeks, following your dentist's instructions, you might have to move up to a new set of clear aligners.
Cleaning Your Teeth Is Much Easier
When you have traditional metal braces, cleaning your teeth can be challenging. That's because the metal wires and panels might be getting in the way. However, you won't be having that problem with Invisalign aligners. That's because you can take off your clear aligners to brush your teeth and floss daily. Once you're done cleaning your mouth, you should put your Invisalign aligners back in. Getting 22 hours of wear daily is essential for successful treatment.
No Food Restrictions
You won't have to worry about food restrictions if you're getting Invisalign. That's unlike traditional braces that make you give up sticky, hard, or chewy foods. You can simply take off your clear aligners for your meals, and put them back on after cleaning your mouth.
Fewer Dental Appointments
Getting traditional braces means that you'll be in and out of your dentist's office to monitor your progress and tighten your braces. With Invisalign clear aligners, your visits to your dentist will be less frequent. Hence, Invisalign might be great for you if you've got a busy schedule.
