At Northeast Dental Center, we care about the oral health of kids and adults alike. If you are seeing a problem with the alignment of your child’s teeth, then we recommend that you visit a dentist and check if he or she needs braces.
Kids tend to dislike wearing braces, and that is why at Northeast Dental Center, we offer Invisalign®, which can be a much better option for tooth alignment as compared to traditional metal braces.
Traditional braces do the job of gradually turning and moving the teeth to give them a more even alignment; however, they cause a lot of discomfort to many people.
Many teens and adults have an issue with the appearance of standard braces. It can affect confidence and become a source of embarrassment.
Apart from causing issues related to appearance, there are also some practical difficulties associated with metal braces. They can be very fragile, which causes the wearer to refrain from eating certain foods. Patients are mostly advised to eat soft foods. Maintaining metal braces can also be a hassle since they have to be cleaned to remove bits of food stuck, and it also tedious to remove from the mouth.
The sharp edges of metal braces may cause cuts to the inside of the cheeks and to the lips as well, making them quite uncomfortable to wear.
Invisalign® braces are virtually undetectable since they are made of clear material and designed to fit well, so they do not need metal braces to keep them in place. They can easily be worn in public, without anyone realizing that you’re wearing braces. Invisalign® braces eliminate the common problems people face with metal braces, and yet are equally efficient in doing the job of aligning your teeth.
With the use of 3-D imaging technology, we are able to create a series of Invisalign® aligners, which can be used one after another as per a specific schedule for the perfect fit.
Invisalign® aligners are very easy to use. You can just pop them out before eating and put them back on once you’re done. The fact that they are easy to remove and place them back on makes caring for your teeth during treatment very easy.
If you have tooth alignment problems and are looking for a better orthodontic treatment, call Northeast Dental Center at (215) 552-9800. We will help you determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you.
