The advantages of Invisalign orthodontics

While many patients avoid talking to their dentist about their crooked smile for fear of needing traditional braces, it is now easier than ever to get results without gluing metal brackets and wires to the surfaces of the teeth. Drs. David Bingham and Don Cook of Northwest Dental Center in Boise, Idaho, are pleased to offer alternative options such as Invisalign orthodontics, which uses clear teeth aligners for teeth straightening.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign is a clear, removable orthodontic appliance that uses a series of custom-made aligners to move teeth into the desired position gently. The clear teeth aligners are made of plastic and are virtually invisible when worn, making them a popular choice for adults and teenagers alike.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Many of our patients love the idea of Invisalign, but there are more benefits than just discreet appearance, which is why many patients refer to them as “clear braces for adults.” Some of the other advantages that Invisalign has over traditional braces include:

  • No need to have brackets or wires glued to your teeth
  • A comfortable fit that can be removed for eating and drinking
  • A quick and easy treatment process
  • Results that are just as effective as traditional braces

Who is a good candidate for Invisalign orthodontics?

Invisalign is an excellent option for patients of all ages who have mild to moderate misalignment issues. In some cases, Invisalign can also be used to correct more complex dental problems. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign is to schedule a consultation with Drs. David Bingham or Don Cook to start your evaluation. In some cases, patients with more severe misalignment issues, such as malocclusion, may still need traditional metal braces to get the results they deserve. However, many patients are pleasantly surprised to find out they qualify for Invisalign treatment.
