What are the benefits of Clear Braces in Northeast Philadelphia, PA?

When patients hear about orthodontics for straightening misaligned teeth, they often cringe at the thought of metal brackets glued to the teeth and held together by wire. Phrases such as “brace face” and “metal mouth” may come to mind, and this in itself can keep teenagers and adults from improving their smiles. Most hesitate in considering braces because of their appearance. Thankfully, the advances in dentistry allow patients to address misalignment without the need for metal. Now, patients in Northeast Philadelphia, PA can benefit from clear braces, also known as Invisalign.
 
Invisalign is a method of improving the alignment of the dental arch with clear aligner trays, which is where this treatment gets the name “clear braces.” Invisalign does not require patients to visit a specialist and allows them to enjoy treatment from the family dentist they know and trust. At David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, he recommends patients consider Invisalign if they are not keen on the concept of traditional braces.
 
Invisalign has a number of advantages over conventional orthodontics, including:

Clear Braces from Dr. Spilkia in Northeast Philadelphia PA

Aesthetics

It is no secret that the number one draw of Invisalign is the idea of having “clear braces.” Invisalign is discreet and even though the trays are worn all day and night, others are unaware that the trays are in place. This makes it a wonderful alternative to traditional braces.

Affordable

Invisalign is similar in cost to traditional braces, making it the “clear choice” when it comes down to which option teenagers and adults would rather choose.

Comfort

Metal brackets and wires can scrape the skin on the inside of the mouth and be incredibly uncomfortable. Dr. David Spilkia loves how comfortable Invisalign trays can be while worn, and highly recommends them to patients who are worried about scratches and irritation caused by conventional braces.

Improvement of oral health throughout treatment

Invisalign is easy to care for and use. They are removable, making it simple to clean the aligner trays and maintain regular brushing and flossing of the natural teeth. Braces tend to cover up so much of the teeth that it can be difficult for patients to maintain their oral health throughout treatment.
