During Self Improvement Month, Drs. Ashlyn Price and Autumn Mayers are pleased to welcome new patients to their practice for orthodontics. They offer Invisalign® in Midlothian, VA, as an alternative to the discomfort and difficulties associated with traditional metal braces. Individuals can achieve a beautiful, straight smile wearing virtually invisible plastic aligners that gently shift teeth into place.
Orthodontics have involved brackets and wires for centuries, and although they do correct misaligned, crowded or crooked teeth, the design also creates problems with hygiene that may compromise oral health. Bacteria and food particles mix to form a sticky paste on the teeth, and even with careful brushing and flossing, it can be challenging to successfully remove all the plaque between the metal components. If left on the teeth, plaque hardens into calculus that can extend below the gum line and irritate sensitive tissues that support the teeth, leading to bacterial infection and tooth decay.
Dental hygiene difficulties lessen for those who opt for Invisalign in Midlothian, VA. The aligners are removable, so patients can take them out to eat and clean the teeth and gums. This type of orthodontics is more comfortable, because the smooth surfaces do not chafe the insides of the cheeks and lips. There is also no tightening of wires. Instead, Drs. Price and Mayers create a series of aligners using three-dimensional images, pictures and impressions of the oral cavity. Each set is custom-designed to shift the teeth to a certain position, and the patient receives a new aligner approximately every two weeks that takes the smile to the next stage.
Self Improvement Month is a great time for those in Midlothian, VA, to learn what Invisalign can do for their smile and their self-confidence.
