Invisalign continues to be one of the most popular and desired cosmetic treatments for patients due to its conveniences and its teeth-straightening effectiveness. Read on to learn more about the benefits of Invisalign, and make an appointment with a dentist at Cumberland Dental Laser & Cosmetic in Cumberland Park, SA, to have your teeth aligned.

Straightening Your Smile with Invisalign
When your teeth and gums are in good condition, your dentist can safely shift them so that they are in a better alignment. The traditional method has been metal braces, which use brackets, wires, and rubber bands to adjust your smile. However, since the late 1990s, a solution called Invisalign has been available to certain qualifying patients. Replacing the use of metal hardware, flexible plastic trays are used to make the teeth conform to a better alignment. The process is best for patients who have mild-to-moderate orthodontic issues, such as small gaps or crowding.

Benefits of Invisalign
The clearest benefit of Invisalign is that the plastic trays are not easily visible to others while talking or smiling. While metal braces are immediately noticeable to others and likely to receive a few comments, with Invisalign, the transparent nature of the trays will cause most people to not even notice that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Another benefit of Invisalign is that you can easily brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis to ensure the maintaintenance of strong dental health throughout your treatment period with your Cumberland Park, SA, dentist.

Feel Confident in Your Smile
Imagine how freeing and relaxed you’ll feel when you finally have a straightened smile that you can be confident about. Approximately 60% of Australians believe that having a nice smile has a positive effect on your confidence and self-esteem according to Orthodontics Australia. With Invisalign, you’ll be making an investment in your smile that won’t interfere much with your lifestyle.

Call for an Invisalign Consultation
Invisalign is a treatment that can be commenced relatively quickly, but you will need to come in for a consultation and exam to ensure that you’re a good candidate for care. Call (08) 8271 6233 today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jack Gaffey or Dr. Angela Gaffey at Cumberland Dental Laser & Cosmetic in Cumberland Park, SA, today!

The impact of a great smile

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry affirms that attractive smiles boost self-esteem. Additionally, people notice an attractive smile first--before height, weight, eye color and other physical attributes.

That being said, your dentists in Cumberland Park, SA, offers a wide variety of orthodontic options--conventional metal braces, Smilefast and Six Month Smiles, and inventive Invisalign clear aligners. They give patients a variety of great paths to perfect smiles. The Simple Braces program makes kids' braces affordable for young families.

The health of a great smile

A well-cared for straight smile is always healthier than a crooked, gapped smile. Or, better said, once a child, teen or adult has completed orthodontic treatment, he or she will enjoy many benefits to health and well-being. Examples are:

  • Fewer headaches, ear aches and jaw pain
  • Clearer speech
  • Proper jaw development and tooth eruption in children
  • Normalized wear and tear on biting and chewing surfaces due to less grinding and clenching (bruxism)
  • Protection against oral accidents (protruding front teeth often chip and crack easily or cause soft tissue irritation and lacerations)
  • Reduced incidence of gum disease
  • Fewer cavities
  • Ease of brushing and flossing
  • Stronger bone structure in the jaw

How can braces help you?

The American Association of Orthodontists advises a complete orthodontic evaluation for all children by the age of seven. However, age is never a barrier to orthodontic treatment. Teens and even adults can wear braces or aligners with great benefit to their appearance, self-esteem, interpersonal and professional relationships and oral health.
