Early & Late Hours Available • Wellington Dental Emergencies Welcome
Wellington Invisalign is among the solutions we offer at Gumucio Dental. Before the year 2000, metal braces were virtually the only options for straightening teeth. Since that time, clear aligners have opened up an entirely new option that works best for many people in need of Wellington Invisalign.
What are Invisalign clear aligners?
Wellington Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible custom-made trays with a snug fit that are worn over the teeth in order to straighten them. Comfortable, smooth plastic aligners accomplish what metal bracket and wire braces achieve but with some significant differences. With Invisalign, you can eat anything you want because you remove your aligners during meals. There are many food restrictions with wire brackets and wires, however. Wires can be uncomfortable, poking and irritating the mouth. It is far more difficult to brush and floss with wire braces, as well. With Wellington Invisalign, simply remove your invisible aligners to brush and floss.
Benefits of Invisalign clear aligners
Wellington Invisalign treatment is available from our dental professionals at Gumucio Dental. Your smile will look better with clear aligners than with metal and wire in your mouth. With clear aligners, the process of straightening your teeth can be done discreetly because you won’t look as though you’re wearing any braces. Other benefits of Invisalign follow:
- With Invisalign, you can remove your teeth aligners whenever you need to, such as to eat, drink, or brush your teeth. If you are experiencing some type of discomfort, simply take the aligners off for a while or until you get advice or other help from your Wellington Invisalign professional at Gumucio Dental. With wire braces, it’s necessary to keep the braces in place until they can be professionally adjusted or removed.
- Records taken in the time since clear aligners have been used as invisible braces show that the duration of treatment can be significantly shorter with Invisalign, as compared with metal braces. Metal braces can be worn for as long as 5 years. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign takes between 1 year and a year and a half.
- There is greater safety in using Wellington Invisalign because the wires in metal braces can scratch and puncture the gums and mouth. Clear braces are comfortable, smooth, and safe. There are no protruding or sharp edges. Metal braces use tremendous force to straighten teeth, which can affect decaying teeth and demineralization. Clear Invisalign braces reduce the damage usually associated with braces.
- You can be confident of the outcome of your treatment when you wear Wellington Invisalign invisible braces. With metal braces, the process is more of a trial-and-error situation. With Invisalign, a fully computerized treatment plan makes patients aware of the specific results they can expect.
Wellington Invisalign provides the benefit of having straight teeth. You can enjoy healthier gums and teeth, easier cleaning, and improved overall health when you go through treatment with clear braces. Healthy teeth and gums can improve your chances for a raise or promotion at work, since your aesthetically pleasing smile says you take good care of yourself and inspires confidence.
