Invisalign Clear Braces in St. Louis, MO
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of jaw and bite irregularities. In principle, orthodontics is an important field that helps people improve their bites and the appearance of smiles. In practice, however, orthodontics has historically provided treatments that are somewhat uncomfortable and somewhat unsightly. We all know too well the inconveniences that come with metallic braces (or worse: headgear). Thankfully, the field of modern orthodontics offers an alternative: Invisalign clear braces. These transparent and removable trays sit over the teeth like mouthguards and are both comfortable and virtually invisible. Here at West County Dental, we are proud to offer Invisalign clear braces to patients of all ages in St. Louis, MO. Read on to learn more, and contact our dental team at (314) 821-2712 today!
The Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
When it comes to braces, straight teeth are just the beginning! While it’s true that braces provide plenty of cosmetic advantages, the benefits to your overall health can be far more significant. Orthodontic care can also improve speech clarity, chewing ability, facial symmetry, digestion, and tooth health. By fixing your bite, orthodontic treatment can also save you from unwanted health complications down the road.
The Advantages of Invisalign Clear Braces
While the benefits of orthodontic treatment are indisputable, traditional braces come with a set of drawbacks that make many potential patients hesitant to receive treatment. Metal braces have a reputation of being uncomfortable and difficult to eat with — to say nothing of their appearance. With Invisalign clear braces, the many drawbacks that come with traditional braces are all but nonexistent. Unlike traditional braces, which are bonded to your teeth and connected to one another with metal wires, Invisalign clear braces are made out of transparent plastic and sit over your teeth like mouthguards. This makes them significantly less visible, significantly more comfortable, and removable for activities like eating and brushing your teeth. Best of all, Invisalign braces have been shown to work as effectively in teeth-straightening and bite-correcting as traditional braces.
