Fremont area dentist reviews with patients the benefits of using Invisalign over traditional braces
Invisalign is becoming a very popular option for patients in the Fremont area who are dealing with mild to moderate misalignment of the natural teeth. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and her team of professionals work closely with men and women to help them decide if this orthodontic alternative may be better for them than more traditional types of braces.
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala starts the consultation appointment with patients interested in Invisalign with discussion regarding the treatment. She reviews the pros and cons of treatment, and can help patients make a decision as to whether or not they are appropriate candidates for Invisalign over metal bracket and wire braces.
Invisalign has many benefits that should not be overlooked when patients are deciding the best way to enhance their smile. Invisalign is more discreet, which is the primary reason why patients consider it. It can take the same amount of time to improve the smile as traditional braces and is similar in cost. However, the plastic aligner trays are durable and easy to remove for cleaning. This improves oral health during treatment, unlike bracket and wire braces which can contribute to the development of cavities and periodontal disease because of the difficulty in effectively cleaning the crevices and spaces between the orthodontia.
The process of obtaining Invisalign begins with a consultation appointment and initial evaluation. During this time, patients will find out if they are right for treatment. They can ask questions to Dr. Munira Lokhandwala to see if they can benefit from Invisalign versus more traditional means of treatment including metal bracket and wire braces. Some patients with more severe cases of misalignment, overcrowding, and bite issues may still benefit from seeing an orthodontist in the community versus a dentist such as Dr. Munira Lokhandwala. This decision can be made during the first visit.
Invisalign is a great option for both teenagers and adults and should be seriously considered when the conditions are right. Patients in and around the area of Fremont are encouraged to speak with a dentist such as Dr. Munira Lokhandwala about the advantages Invisalign has over more traditional means of addressing misaligned teeth and poorly aligned bites.
