Invisalign clear retainers offer patients of ALL ages the opportunity to treat a variety of dental problems, including cosmetic concerns, with clear, removable retainers instead of traditional metal braces. Invisalign can offer dental patients the benefit of treatment that is truly “invisible”!
While young patients and teens appreciate the convenience of Invisalign, adult patients who either need or desire orthodontic treatment really love being able to use braces that are “invisible”!
Dr. Poorva Parnaik of Dental Creations in Medford frequently recommends the use of the Invisalign clear retainer system when appropriate because of the added benefit of being able to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment: the retainers can be removed for brushing and flossing each day. No more food particles being lodged between or behind metal braces! This also helps to prevent tooth discoloration and the development of oral health issues such as gum disease during treatment.
Dr. Parnaik recommends Invisalign for a variety of cosmetic concerns and dental health issues:
- Tooth crowding
- Spaces between teeth
- Narrow tooth arches
- Underbite or overbite
Orthodontic treatment is most successful when the patient is committed and adheres to the care prescribed by Dr. Parnaik, including dietary restrictions, which is required with traditional metal braces. Invisalign patients will find it easy to follow the treatment plan due to the ease and comfort with which the clear retainers can be removed for cleaning, dental visits and changing into the next retainer. This can be especially important for younger patients who may not be as enthusiastic about orthodontic treatment! In addition, Invisalign retainers will not irritate the soft tissues of the mouth, a common problem for patients using metal braces- especially children and teens.
