At Howard County Smiles, we aim to help patients find the best solutions for their dental problems. If you have misaligned or crooked teeth and want a straighter smile, Invisalign may be right for you. Dr. Ray Becker is an Invisalign provider in Columbia, MD that helps patients restore balance to their smiles. He always reviews each patient’s dental history and current dental concerns to make sure that treatment meets their needs. As a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Becker has experience in helping patients receive straighter smiles.
Common Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign clear aligners provide these benefits to patients with crooked teeth:
- Improved Oral Hygiene: Invisalign aligners are removable, so you will be able to clean your teeth much more easily than if you were wearing metal braces. Patients are not able to clean the middle of the front of their teeth if they receive treatment with metal braces. Clear Invisalign aligners allow patients to clean their teeth evenly.
- Discreet Treatment: Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic so they can blend in with the smile. Invisalign aligners are worn for 22 hours a day, so an added benefit of this treatment is its clear appearance.
- No Dietary Restrictions: Traditional metal braces require diet modifications to protect the wires and braces. As clear Invisalign aligners are removable, patients can eat the foods they love without restrictions. Patients who wear braces often cannot eat hard or sticky foods that can damage the appliance.
- Comfort: Invisalign aligners are made of thin, flexible material. They are contoured to fit the teeth so they do not irritate the soft tissues of the mouth, unlike the metal wires of braces.
