Las Vegas, NV area patients enjoy Invisalign on their teeth
Misalignment of the teeth is known as malocclusion. When the dental arch is not aligned and the bite is off, it can result in aesthetic concerns as well as issues with functionality and protection of natural teeth. Poor bite alignment may cause unwanted wear on the teeth. Patients in the Las Vegas, NV area interested in orthodontics can consider Invisalign as an alternative to traditional metal bracket and wire braces on teeth.
What is Invisalign?
When patients hear about Invisalign, they are often intrigued at the idea of addressing misalignment in a way that is more discreet than conventional orthodontics. Invisalign works with aligner trays made of clear acrylic. Trays slide over the dental arch and gently move teeth into proper position. Patients are provided with a series of trays, using a set for two weeks before advancing to the next. Dr. Christopher Lim finds that patient compliance is very good because treatment is easy and aesthetic.
There are several benefits to the use of Invisalign. The first advantage is the ability to straighten teeth without brackets and wires, instead using clear, discreet aligner trays. This makes it a more desirable choice than covering the teeth with metal. Additionally, patients love the ability to remove aligners to eat and care for their teeth. This greatly improves oral hygiene throughout the process. Trays are also comfortable and easy to care for.
