Clear braces such as Invisalign can enhance the smile
Patients with misaligned teeth are often dissatisfied with their smiles. The spaces, gaps, and crooked teeth may make them feel self-conscious about the way they look when interacting with others. They may hold their hand up to cover their smiles because they are embarrassed. However, the concept of having metal bracket and wire braces covering their teeth also makes them unhappy, keeping many men and women from addressing their malocclusion with dental treatment.
Thanks to advances in dentistry, Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the team of StarBrite Dental provide patients with clear braces. These clear braces are better known as Invisalign. Invisalign is a method of realigning the smile with aligner trays that fit over the dental arch. These trays are comfortable and discreet, made of medical-grade plastic that is clear and smooth. When patients wear the trays, they slowly reposition the teeth, resulting in an improved appearance.
Invisalign is a treatment that is readily available through StarBrite Dental in Fremont. Most patients with mild to moderate malocclusion are appropriate candidates for treatment. This treatment can be used to realign not only the teeth within the dental arch but the bite as well. It may be beneficial for patients with cross bite, overbite, or underbite. Patients need to understand that Invisalign treatment requires strict compliance to see the results they desire. When patients do not wear their trays as prescribed, they may cause delays in treatment and results. Patients are urged to keep their trays in at all times, only removing them for brushing, flossing, and eating. This ensures the trays are able to gently reposition the teeth appropriately and allow patients to move forward with their treatment on schedule.
