Convenient and Discreet Teeth Straightening: How Invisalign Treatment Fits into Your Routine

Invisalign Portland and Tigard

A perfectly straight smile is universally regarded as a major asset to your appearance and can significantly boost your confidence. It is now easier than ever to straighten your smile. Dr. Spaniel offers Invisalign clear aligners to patients who desire a convenient solution that fits perfectly into their current routine. Discover the benefits of Invisalign below.

Discreet Aligners vs Traditional Braces

When patients decide to straighten their teeth, they are often presented with one of two options: traditional braces or clear aligners. While traditional braces can be a solution for straighter teeth, they also come with several negative features that do not suit every patient’s needs. Metal braces are highly noticeable, which can make some patients feel self-conscious when smiling or speaking. On the other hand, the inconspicuous teeth straightening offered by Invisalign treatment results in virtually no impact on the patient’s aesthetic. This benefit is especially appealing to adults and those who frequently interact with others.

Invisalign Fits into Your Routine

Invisalign is designed to complement your routine as imperfections in the alignment of your smile are addressed. You can enjoy all of your favorite foods without the fear of pain caused by traditional braces. You also will not have to worry about food getting stuck in your brackets. This is because Invisalign clear aligners can be easily removed at any time to eat and drink without hassle. It is also beneficial when it comes to cleaning your teeth since no special instruments or products are required outside of a good toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss.

When you start Invisalign treatment, a complete digital treatment plan will be designed for you based on how your teeth are predicted to move. When your current set of aligners is scheduled to be changed, you simply begin using the next set in your treatment plan.

More Than Just Cosmetic Improvement

While a great smile is certainly an attractive result, Dr. Spaniel is also passionate about the health of your smile. With Invisalign, bite misalignment, crowding, and other such issues can be corrected, which can enhance your overall dental hygiene by reducing cavities and allowing you to have easier access to previously hard-to-reach places.

Invisalign is a doctor-led treatment, which means Dr. Spaniel will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress.
