If you are in your late teens or adulthood, it is unlikely that you would enthusiastically start wearing braces to get that corrected smile you may have been wanting for many years. After all, braces are not comfortable or esthetically appealing, and yet there is an alternative. Invisalign is a form of orthodontics that can be used in near complete secrecy, and yet it offers the same results as braces. There are many other benefits of Invisalign, and the team at Redford Dental Care in Carmichael, CA encourages you to read on to learn all about them.
Not Clear Braces
As your chosen dentist in Carmichael, we want you to realize that one of the primary benefits of Invisalign is that they are not clear braces. They are not made with wires or brackets but are instead a series of custom made clear aligners that slowly and steadily correct your bite. While some patients will want them as a form of cosmetic dentistry, just as many look to them as a solution to bite and alignment issues that need to be addressed for optimal oral health.
This is another of the benefits of Invisalign – it works on mild issues as well as more severe issues, and yet it does so discreetly and with great comfort.
Braces are rarely what anyone might describe as comfortable, yet another of the benefits of Invisalign is that they are smooth and clear aligners that slide on and off the teeth easily. Because there are no brackets or wires, the soft tissue of the mouth is never irritated or harmed. The aligners should be worn 22 hours per day, and removed only for eating and drinking anything other than water.
Yet, here too is another benefit. After all, braces make it nearly impossible to keep your teeth and gums in their best condition, yet with Invisalign, you pop out the aligner to brush, floss and rinse. You clean the aligner and then put it back on, and your mouth remains in its best shape possible.
Another benefit is that Invisalign is not much more expensive than classic braces, and in some instances, it can be less costly. It also means far fewer visits to our office as there are no adjustments, and we need only do periodic checks on progress.

A great family operation (pun intended). I have been a patient of Dr. Davey for a long time and recently had an emergency and the staff and Dr. Davey handled it very well for me and I'm no longer in pain. Tooth infections are a bear to deal with. Thanks again Dr. Davey and staff.
