Do you want a gorgeous, even smile? Like many people, you probably wish to avoid unsightly metal braces.  Thankfully, LaFrom Dentistry offers an alternative to traditional dental braces with Invisalign. In today’s blog, your Cupertino dentist, Dr. Randy LaFrom, discusses the importance of dental braces and recommends smile correction with Invisalign.

Improve Smile Health with Dental Braces

Misalignment affects more than just the appearance of your smile. Uneven teeth make thorough brushing and flossing difficult, providing a number of hiding places for harmful bacteria. Soon, you may experience an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease, threatening the health and stability of your smile. With dental braces, your teeth can be straightened, improving oral hygiene and dental health.

Try Inconspicuous Invisalign Braces

Traditional dental braces use metal brackets and wires to improve smiles. Invisalign however, uses a series of clear plastic aligners. The aligners are custom-made and worn between 20 and 22 hours each day. Approximately every two weeks the patient upgrades to a new set as his/her teeth are gradually and gently repositioned. The aligners can be removed before meals, which means you don’t need to alter your diet or avoid certain foods. The entire treatment period typically takes about a year.

Invisalign Teen

Your Cupertino CA cosmetic dentist also offers Invisalign Teen for our younger patients. The system works the same, but each aligner will contain a small blue dot on the end. If the aligners are worn properly, the dot will wear away. This allows parents to monitor their child’s usage. Invisalign Teen also offers up to six replacement aligners in case your teen loses or misplaces his/her current aligner.
