As we discussed in the last blog post, our Newburgh, NY dentist’s office is adept at transforming smiles for grown-up patients, and boosting oral health in the process. What’s more, for many folks, it is possible to get the results you want the easy way: with Invisalign clear aligners. So, keep reading, and then be sure to contact us to schedule your orthodontic consultation with Dr. Petrosino!
We Have Metal-Free Orthodontics
You will love the way that Invisalign removes metal brackets and wires from the picture. This program delivers a gorgeous grin by utilizing a series of clear plastic aligner trays to do the shifting around for you. Your Invisalign aligners can be switched out at home (by you) every two weeks, which eliminates the need for in-office adjustments and the related time away from work, school, or play.
The Gear Is Discreet
No one wants to draw extra attention to the fact that their smile is under construction. Fortunately, your aligners are virtually invisible which means that they won’t be noticed by anyone you encounter during the process. No rude comments or silly nicknames will accompany your treatment!
Simple, Straightforward Process
The aligners are also far more comfortable to wear than metal braces, and they won’t cause any bleeding or mouth sores along the way. Here’s the best feature: they aren’t permanently affixed to your mouth so you can pop them out at dinner time. No special diets required! What’s more, cleaning your equipment is a breeze. No special tools will be needed. There’s no doubt that for the right candidates, Invisalign can deliver a better-looking smile in a short amount of time (like 12 months). But this program also boosts your oral health by taking on some serious concerns including the following:
An overbite can place extra stress on your teeth and lead to worn-down or cracked teeth. Invisalign handles your bite problems now saving you time and expense down the line.
Crowded teeth can destroy your looks. But did you know that crowded teeth can actually increase your chances of developing periodontal disease? Teeth that are too close together are difficult to keep clean. Bacteria will be able to avoid your toothbrush and dental floss. As the dangerous plaque builds up and causes inflammation and infection, tooth loss and other health issues can result.
Gaps in your smile won’t go unnoticed. But that’s not the worst thing. Your individual teeth will not be adequately protected by the surrounding teeth as long as those spaces are there. Invisalign can help you hold onto your natural teeth by shifting things into better placement.
You Make The Call
If you like what you have heard, then what are you waiting for? The only way to know if Invisalign could work for you is to schedule a visit to our Newburgh, NY dentist’s office, sooner rather than later. Dr. Petrosino will get you smiling big again in no time!
