At Lakeside Dental Care we understand how important a smiling, healthy-looking mouth is to you and that’s why Invisalign has become our orthodontic treatment of choice. Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, custom-fitted aligners designed to provide a superior aesthetic look compared to traditional metal braces. Invisalign also provides added convenience by allowing you to remove the aligners for eating, brushing, and flossing your teeth with much greater ease. In contrast to other treatments, Invisalign is more comfortable given its smooth surface versus brackets and wires which require tightening over time. This hassle-free approach makes Invisalign the preferred option for adults, teens, and their parents wanting the most viable orthodontic treatment available today.
What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on correcting misaligned teeth and jaws using braces, retainers, and other appliances. It aims to improve the patient’s bite, speech, and overall oral health, as well as enhance the patient’s appearance by straightening their teeth. Orthodontic treatment can involve moving teeth into their correct position using clear aligners or other appliances. The treatment can be used to correct a variety of issues, such as underbites, overbites, crossbites, open bites, crowding, and spacing. Orthodontic treatment can be done at any age, but it is most commonly done during the teenage years when the face and jaws are still growing. The length of treatment can vary depending on the severity of the problem.
We also offer fluoride treatment and sealants as part of regular dental visits. Fluoride treatment is a quick and painless procedure that helps to strengthen tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay. This treatment is especially beneficial for children and adults who are at a higher risk of developing cavities. Sealants are a protective coating that is applied to the surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars) to prevent tooth decay. Sealants are a great option for children and adults who have deep grooves and pits in their molars that are difficult to clean. Both fluoride treatment and sealants are an effective way to prevent tooth decay and maintain a healthy smile.
Benefits of Invisalign
- Clear and virtually invisible: Invisalign aligners are made of clear, plastic material that is virtually invisible, so no one will know you are wearing them.
- Removable: You can remove the aligners to eat, brush, and floss, making it easier to maintain your regular oral hygiene routine.
- Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth and are designed to be comfortable to wear.
- Faster treatment time: Invisalign treatment is often faster than traditional braces, with treatment times averaging around 12-18 months.
- No food restrictions: With traditional braces, certain foods must be avoided to avoid damaging the brackets and wires. With Invisalign, you can eat whatever you like since the aligners are removed during meal times.
- No metal wires or brackets: Invisalign eliminates the need for metal wires and brackets, reducing the chance of mouth irritation and ulcers.
- Better hygiene: Since you can remove the aligners, it is easier to keep them clean and maintain better oral hygiene.
- Customizable: Invisalign treatment is tailored to meet the unique needs and goals of each patient, resulting in a personalized and effective treatment plan.
