Are you embarrassed by spaces in between your teeth or crooked and misshapen teeth?  Do you often find yourself trying to hide your smile when out with friends?  Do you even feel that your imperfect smile is hindering your way of life?  Invisalign invisible braces may be the solution to this prolonged problem.  Oakwood Dental has the finest cosmetic dentistry Staten Island has to offer and one of our areas of specialty is Invisalign.  We believe Invisalign is one of the most effective and convenient aspects of aesthetic dentistry.  Invisalign invisible braces use a series of clear and removable aligners that straighten your teeth right before your eyes.

Invisalign has several advantages and benefits.  One of the most beneficial aspects of Invisalign is that they are much more discreet than metal braces.  While traditional braces use heavy metals that are placed on top of your teeth to straighten them, Invisalign uses clear and colorless plates that are designed to straighten your teeth while going virtually unnoticed.  If you want to straighten your pearly whites without the rest of the world knowing, or want to flash a smile without a mouthful of metal, Invisalign may be the best option for you.  If you are an adult considering teeth straightening but do not feel comfortable with the idea of metal braces, Invisalign is a subtle and effective tool to obtain the results you desire.  Invisalign is meant to fit your lifestyle as seamlessly and subtly as possible while giving you maximum results.

Invisalign also offers several conveniences that metal braces do not.  For one, there is no need to avoid certain foods when using Invisalign.  When using traditional metal braces, patients are often advised to avoid several foods because they can become lodged within the wires of the braces.  Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can simply take out your aligners when you are about to eat and place them back in your mouth when you are finished, erasing the need to avoid any kind of foods at all.  The fact that Invisalign braces are removable also makes it much easier to brush and floss your teeth.  When using metal braces, it is often very difficult to properly brush and floss your teeth because the metal is placed on top of the better part of your tooth.  This often leads to discoloration, tooth decay, and plaque buildup.  Because Invisalign braces are removable, you simply remove the aligners when you brush and floss your teeth in the morning and night and put them back on as soon as you’re done.  This helps you acquire your straight smile while also maintaining your periodontal health in order to achieve the most beautiful smile possible.  Invisalign braces are also less stress on your mouth.  Metal braces have sharp wires that can easily cause mouth sores and cut into the sides of your mouth.  Invisalign braces are made out of smooth plastic to ensure the most comfort possible.

If you are considering making Invisalign a part of your life, trust Oakwood Dental, the leading cosmetic dentist on Staten Island
