Invisible Braces

Invisible Braces
A crooked smile or overcrowded teeth can be unattractive and lead to a lowered self-confidence and poor social esteem. These imperfections can also have negative medical effects, increasing the risk of dental health issues.

A poor bite can lead to TMJ, tooth grinding, sleep disorders, and headaches. It may be more difficult to properly brush and floss teeth that are misaligned, leading to a build-up of tartar and plaque.

While all these issues can be easily fixed with traditional braces, many teens and adults resist treatment because they are concerned about the cosmetic appearance of braces, which are traditionally made of metal and are highly visible.

Invisible braces offer a unique alternative to traditional metal braces, and they have become increasingly popular in today’s image-conscious environment. The braces themselves are made of hard, transparent plastic which does not irritate the cheeks. The braces are removable, improving dental hygiene and keeping you as photogenic as possible.

This treatment is ideal for both adults and kids who find it difficult to manage metal braces and brackets. They are especially excellent for professionals who work with the public and want the option not to wear them on certain days. These plastic invisible braces fit comfortably over your teeth and move your teeth gradually into the desired orthodontic position.

BENEFITS OF Invisible Braces
IMPROVED GUM HEALTH.
Properly aligned teeth allow the gums to “fit” tighter around them, which in turn improves their health. It has been proven through research that the health of your periodontal tissue can improve with the use of invisible braces.

EAT WHAT YOU LIKE
These aligners are easily removable and therefore, there are no restrictions on what you can eat during the treatment. However, a healthy diet helps you achieve healthy gums and teeth.


EASIER CLEANINGS
Invisible braces are easy to remove and this allows you to clean your teeth and gums with greater ease. This is vital in the prevention of plaque formation, tooth decay, and other periodontal diseases.


IMPROVED CHEWING AND SPEECH
Poorly positioned teeth can sometimes result in chewing and speech problems. This treatment helps correct the bite position as well as the speech.


REDUCES DENTAL TRAUMA AND ABNORMAL WEAR
Poorly aligned teeth can often result in dental trauma and abnormal wear due to the stress they put on the jaw bone. This treatment helps in overcoming this problem.


A BEAUTIFUL SMILE
Last but not least, straightening your teeth with our Invisible aligners will enhance your smile as well as your confidence.
