What makes Invisalign treatment different from conventional braces for San Jose patients?
Gone are the days of conventional metal bracket and wire braces being the only choice to straighten teeth! Teenagers and adults are now able to straighten their teeth in a revolutionary way with Invisalign treatment. Dr. Lokhandwala of San Jose offers Invisalign for patients who are interested in realigning their bite and/or teeth without the embarrassing stigma of traditional braces.
Instead of visiting a specialist for orthodontic care, patients enjoy seeing their dentist for assistance. Dr. Lokhandwala provides Invisalign for patients who do not want to deal with brackets and wires glued to their teeth for months in order to improve their smile. Invisalign offers a variety of benefits over traditional braces.
The primary reason patients choose Invisalign over traditional orthodontics is appearance. Invisalign uses aligner trays that are made of clear medical-grade plastics. They allow patients to wear the trays every day while their beautiful smiles shine through during treatment. No more “metal mouth” and “brace face” taunts!
Invisalign aligner trays fit snugly over the dental arch and the plastic is smooth and comfortable. Patients are able to wear them all day and night without them rubbing against their cheeks or causing sores in their mouth. Traditional braces can scratch the inside skin of the cheek and result in discomfort.
Ease of Use
Invisalign is easy to use. Patients are required to wear them at all times, except when eating and drinking to see the results they desire. Since they are comfortable to wear, many patients easily comply with treatment and see a straighter, more beautiful smile in less than a year!
Easy to Clean
Brackets and wires on the teeth can make it difficult for patients to maintain good oral hygiene. Flossing is more difficult, and brushing takes longer. Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing patients to maintain their oral health without having to work around metal. This ensures periodontal disease and cavities cannot develop.
