Healthy, straight teeth are not only an essential part of a beautiful smile - they also make eating and speaking more comfortable. However, many people require orthodontic work to align teeth properly. If you or your children have crooked teeth, scheduling an appointment with a dental professional is the first step toward developing a treatment plan. Dr. Paresh Naran is a family dentist in Raleigh, NC, and he offers several dental services, ranging from routine checkups and root canals to dental implants and orthodontic treatment. Depending on your unique circumstances, Dr. Naran may recommend Invisalign® trays as an alternative to traditional metal braces. Here are some important benefits to consider.

 

1. Appearance

One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign® clear aligning trays is that they are practically invisible. Instead of changing your appearance with metal braces, you can straighten your teeth discreetly with clear trays custom-made for your mouth.


2. Comfort

Invisalign® aligners offer most patients minimal discomfort during use. The smooth material of the trays helps prevent abrasions and inflammation of the soft tissue inside the mouth.


3. Oral Health

Because Invisalign® trays are removable, you can take them out to eat and reduce the risk of getting food stuck in hard-to-clean places. It is also easy to brush and floss your teeth with the trays removed, and your dentist can take them out to complete routine cleanings.


4. Results

Although Invisalign® trays are comfortable and removable, they are still extremely effective at moving the teeth into the correct alignment. The graduated trays adjust the position of the teeth slowly over several months and give most patients exceptional results.
