5 Amazing Benefits of Invisalign®

According to Invisalign®, more than eight million people have used their clear alignment system to correct their smiles. If you have a malocclusion (i.e., abnormal bite), crooked teeth, gapped teeth, or other dental imperfections, Invisalign could be an excellent option for you.

At Expressions In Dentistry in Folsom, California, our expert team of dentists has years of experience creating healthy smiles. They offer Invisalign clear alignment trays to teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth without a mouth full of metal. 

Invisalign clear aligners are made of BPA-free plastic and are a removable, more comfortable, and faster alternative to traditional braces. In addition to being almost invisible and a better fit for your lifestyle, they also provide several other benefits.

Here’s why we recommend Invisalign to our patients:

1. Invisalign is 50% faster than braces

Unlike traditional braces, which force each tooth to move individually, Invisalign’s one-piece system exerts a continuous force on all of your teeth, allowing them to move simultaneously. Your teeth move into place faster, creating the smile of your dreams, often within 12-18 months. That’s about 50% faster than alternative smile-correcting treatments. 

2. Invisalign is precise

Expressions In Dentistry uses the state-of-the-art, patented iTero Element® scanner to create 3D models of your teeth. This allows a precise fit, which is imperative for excellent results. 

Cutting-edge iTero technology also allows your dentist to create a treatment plan that simulates the specific movements needed for each tooth at every stage of alignment. They can even show you the end-result of the plan, so you know what your teeth will look like, even before slipping on your first alignment tray. 

3. SmartTrack® is comfortable and consistent

Clear dental aligners aren’t created equal. Only Invisalign clear aligners use the patented SmartTrack material — a highly elastic material that provides enhanced comfort compared to other clear aligner alternatives. 

SmartTrack produces a gentle but consistent force to move your teeth and minimize discomfort. And as an added benefit, SmartTrack also makes it easier to put on and remove your aligners. 

4. Invisalign correct even troublesome teeth

Teeth that need a little extra help moving to their correct positions are fairly common. Our dentists use Invisalign SmartForce® attachments to achieve complicated dental movements without metal braces. The tiny, tooth-colored invisible SmartForce attachments allow your dentist to customize the pressure on your troublesome teeth, ensuring they move into place without metal or rubber bands.

5. Eight million smiles can’t be wrong

The inventors of Invisalign used the data and feedback from more than eight million Invisalign patients to fine-tune the formula for even faster and more effective straightening.
