Comfort and Convenience
Invisalign® has many advantages over traditional methods of braces, one being the most important: comfort and convenience. Traditional braces can be uncomfortable and cause significant amounts of pain, as well as time consuming proper brushing and flossing. The comfort and convenience of Invisalign outweighs other methods of orthodontics tremendously. At studioSMILE Orthodontics in Overland Park, KS, we provide the comfort and convenience of Invisalign to our patients seeking more enjoyable orthodontics.
Invisalign clear aligners are customized by Dr. Kelly Tabacchi by utilizing advanced 3D computer modeling that results in pieces of plastic that fit your teeth exactly. This results in a completely comfortable experience. The aligners allow for gradual movement of your teeth, which significantly decreases the normal discomfort that is associated with traditional metal braces. With Invisalign, you will seldom experience cuts or sores on your mouth, lips, cheeks or gums from your clear aligners because the smooth plastic will not cut the inside of your mouth and cheeks, unlike with traditional metal braces.
Invisalign allows for patients to take out their aligners whenever they need to. You will not have any food restrictions. You can effectively brush and floss your teeth. Your general dentist can perform dental procedures easier if necessary. Anytime you need to remove your plastic aligners for any reason, that becomes possible with Invisalign. Another convenient aspect of Invisalign is that you will only need to visit Dr. Kelly Tabacchi at studioSMILE Orthodontics about every 8-12 weeks. With traditional metal braces, you will wear them until they are removed period. A patient in traditional metal braces does not get to enjoy all of the benefits that a patient with Invisalign does.
With traditional metal braces, oral hygiene suffers because it is nearly impossible to effectively clean your teeth. This results in bad oral hygiene due to the cleaning complexities and can lead to plaque scars and infected gums. With Invisalign, you simply remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth, as well as clean the plastic aligners. Since there is nothing obstructing your ability to clean, the cleaning time will be the same as it was before your braces. Your oral hygiene is of utmost importance and this is one of the main reasons that Dr. Kelly Tabacchi and studioSMILE Orthodontics provides Invisalign exclusively.
For special occasions or a night out of with friend, you do not want your orthodontic treatment getting in the way or distracting your appearance in pictures. This is where the convenience of being able to freely remove your aligners comes in handy. You will not need to hide your mouth or duck from cameras. You will have the ability to show off your natural teeth without sacrificing your night out. Please note that Invisalign should be worn for 22 hours per day for best results.
