The 5 W’s of Invisalign

New York NY Invisalign ProviderIf your reflection smiling back at you in the mirror is disheartening due to teeth dissatisfaction, it is time to consider Invisalign! Let’s explore Invisalign using the old school method of discovery – asking yourself the 5 W’s. Remember doing this back in elementary school?

The 5 W’s – Who, What Where, When and Why?

What Invisalign?
Invisalign is a new technology in orthodontics that straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. The aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. The custom-made series of aligners gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You place the new set of aligners every two weeks, or with our accelerated option, every five days until your treatment is complete.

Why Invisalign?
Straight teeth lead to healthier teeth and a healthier you! When your teeth are properly aligned, it helps your gums fit more securely around your teeth. Your teeth are the window to the health of your entire body. Bacteria causes tooth decay and gum disease. Studies have shown that oral infection can lead to more serious problems such as heart disease, stroke, pneumonia and diabetes. It’s also easier to keep your teeth cleaned while using Invisalign aligners. The aligners may easily be removed to brush and floss, so there’s nothing impeding your access to optimal clean and healthy teeth. Aligned teeth can alleviate issues caused by improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, and increased wear on the tooth enamel.

Who Invisalign?
Invisalign is available for adults and teens. Your dentist will determine if it is right for you, and determine if you are a good candidate. If you’re experiencing gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, openbite, crossbite, or crowding, Invisalign can help you. Who doesn’t want minimal interference in their everyday activities and routines? If you’re not a fan of wearing traditional metal brackets in your mouth, then Invisalign is right for you. If you also don’t want to sacrifice eating pizza crust, popcorn, chips, nuts, apples, corn on the cob and carrots, then Invisalign is for you! If your time is valuable to you and you don’t want to visit the dentist for monthly adjustments to your metal braces, then Invisalign is right for you. With Invisalign, you need to visit your dental office less frequently than those with traditional metal braces. Invisalign is a lifestyle choice that is easy to make with minimal sacrifices and invasions to your normal daily routines.

When Invisalign?
If you’re experiencing tooth alignment dissatisfaction, the time is right to make an appointment with your dentist to discuss the right time to begin your treatment. Misaligned teeth dissatisfaction will have a negative effect on you socially as well. If you’re avoiding smiling, social settings or anything else you would normally do, it’s time to consider Invisalign. You can exchange your self-consciousness for self-confidence!

Often, people put off making decisions about their teeth because they have unanswered questions in their mind about it. It’s time now to begin your journey to discovering all that Invisalign can help you with. You’ll discover that it’s actually more affordable than you think. Often insurances and Flexible Spending Accounts are a big help in paying for the cost. It’s important to discuss all of your payment options with your dental office to find what is right for you.

Wear Invisalign!
After answering all of your questions about Invisalign, it’s time to wear Invisalign! There’s no question that it’s the best option for the savvy dental shopper. Choosing Invisalign is like shopping for a new purse, pair of shoes, or any accessory. You want to choose something that goes with everything! The reason Invisalign is a good purchase for your wardrobe is that the aligner trays are virtually invisible. They go with everything! No clashing your jewelry, glasses or outfits with the traditional metal braces anymore.

Another reason you should wear Invisalign with confidence is that they are made with BPA-free plastic. This is important as you consider what you will be placing in your mouth on a daily basis. Traditional metal braces can irritate your cheeks and mouth. BPA-free plastic is important feature of Invisalign. BPA is a concern due to the possible health effects it could have on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children. Some research suggests a possible link between BPA and increased blood pressure.
