Dr. Carolina Giraldo and the rest of our team have helped hundreds of patients improve and maintain the health of their teeth and gums with Invisalign in Norwalk, CT. We believe that everyone deserves a healthy smile, yet understand the burden and unpleasantness of traditional corrective dental procedures. That’s why we espouse the benefits of Invisalign to all our patients inquiring about orthodontic work. Before you speak with your dentist, take a moment to learn some of the advantages Invisalign can provide for your oral health.

Discrete, Removable and Pain-Free

If you decide to pursue a straighter smile through Invisalign, your dentist will take x-rays and impressions to construct a 3D image of your mouth. Through this representation, a corrective tray will be formed that slides over your teeth, gently aligning your smile. You will receive a new tray every two weeks, each one further adjusting your teeth.

Invisalign uses soft plastic aligners, as opposed to fixed metal brackets, which are easily removed for brushing and flossing. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign reduces the risk of mouth sores, pain and discomfort, plaque buildup and tooth decay from inadequate brushing habits. Best of all, they’re nearly invisible, allowing you to smile confidently throughout your treatment. Other advantages include:

·         Fewer visits to the dentist than with fixed braces

·         BPA-free plastic that fits comfortably with little to no irritation

·         A beautiful, photogenic smile

Straight Teeth Means a Healthier Mouth

Clear aligners and braces do much more than provide a straight, beautiful smile. They also prevent overcrowding and gaps between teeth, which can both lead to periodontal issues. When your teeth are straight, your gums can fit more securely, reducing the chances of swelling, infection and other gum disorders. Finally, a straight smile makes cleaning and flossing easier and more effective.
