The Invisalign® Advantage

The Invisalign® Advantage

Our Manhattan, NYC area patients know that Invisalign provides a much more comfortable treatment for crooked teeth and bite issues than traditional braces. Hello and welcome to the brand new Invisalign® blog of Marc J. Beshar Dentistry! For the longest time we have wondered what the best way might be of getting the word about Invisalign out to our many current and prospective teeth straightening patients. We finally decided on this blog after many long hours of brainstorming. Using this blog, we hope to bring you great information on Invisalign and what sets it apart from other teeth restoration methods. Today, Dr. Marc J. Beshar is blogging from Manhattan, NYC to talk about exactly what makes Invisalign a better treatment for crooked teeth and bite issues than traditional braces.

A Better Treatment for a New Age

One of the main reasons for why our patients are choosing Invisalign over traditional braces is because it is made from a soft clear plastic instead of metal wires and brackets. This plastic is custom made to fit comfortably against our patients’ teeth and gums. The edges are also rounded, ensuring that you are not harmed by your treatment. This is a big difference from traditional braces, which have a reputation for cutting our patients’ gums and tongues. Our patients also love the fact that the plastic used to make their Invisalign aligners is clear, making the treatment virtually invisible when in place on your teeth.

Another way that Invisalign revolutionizes the teeth straightening process is the fact that it is not cemented to your teeth. In fact, you will be able to remove your aligners at any time you may deem it necessary. So long as your aligners are worn for at least 22 hours a day, your treatment will continue as planned. This comes in handy when it’s time to eat. With traditional braces, you have to give up some foods as they can damage your treatment. With Invisalign, you will simply take your aligners out while you eat and then reinsert them when done.

Being able to remove your aligners at any time has the added benefit of making it very easy to keep your teeth properly cleaned. Traditional braces can make it very difficult to floss and to reach every part of your teeth with your brush. With Invisalign, you will take your aligners out while you brush and floss as you normally would. You will also use this time to brush your aligners, keeping them clean and healthy. Once you are done, you will reinsert your aligners for the night.
