Invisalign/Orthodontics Q & A

What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that specializes in teeth straightening and jaw alignment. While all orthodontists are dentists, only 6% of dentists are trained orthodontists, according to the American Dental Association.

The professional team at La Michoacana Dental Clinic conveniently provides both dental and orthodontic services for your whole family, eliminating the need to make multiple appointments at different offices.

Orthodontic treatments may help improve:

  • A healthy bite
  • Ability to chew and speak
  • Oral hygiene
  • The appearance of your smile

What are My Options for Orthodontic Treatments?

Whether you’re an adult with the desire to discreetly straighten misaligned teeth, or the parent of a child who needs braces, the team at La Michoacana Dental Clinic helps you find the right option for your unique needs.

They offer the following orthodontic treatments:

  • Invisalign removable aligners
  • Metal or porcelain braces
  • Retainers

What is Invisalign?

While uneven or misaligned teeth can impact your appearance, flashing a smile full of metal braces may not be an appealing alternative.

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses custom-made, clear, removable aligner trays to straighten your teeth. In order for Invisalign to work, you must commit to wearing the aligner trays at least 20-22 hours per day. The more you wear them, the better they work.

Treatment with Invisalign may be the best option if you have any of the following problems:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gaps in your teeth
  • Misaligned teeth

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers increased comfort and convenience compared to traditional braces. The plastic material eliminates mouth pain that comes with metal braces, while the removable trays allow for greater flexibility.

Since the aligner trays are clear, Invisalign is virtually unnoticeable. You can even take them out for social events.

You also need to remove the aligners while you eat, which means you get to enjoy all your favorite foods without worrying about interference from your orthodontic device. It’s crucial to brush and floss your teeth before reinserting your aligners. For this reason, many Invisalign patients experience improved oral hygiene and some weight loss due to a decrease in snacking.

If you or your child needs orthodontic treatment, call La Michoacana Dental Clinic or book an appointment online today.
