4 Benefits of Invisalign in San Antonio

Published on March 05, 2019
A smile is uniquely yours and allows you to express who you really are. If you are deciding whether or not to straighten your teeth, our team at Bunn Orthodontic Group understand it is a big decision that affects not only your appearance, but your lifestyle as well. Having proper aligned teeth, gives you additional benefits beyond a confident smile.

Your teeth can be aligned at any age, from children to teenagers to adults. If you are an adult or a teenager in the San Antonio community, counting down to a healthier smile and want to live your life uninterrupted, Invisalign can be your perfect opportunity, after all San Antonio is known as the “Countdown City.” Invisalign clear aligners work the same way traditional braces do: by applying carefully controlled forces to teeth to move them into a better position. But they are not made of metal; instead, they are made of clear, flexible plastic. Here are 4 benefits of using clear aligners, to help you decide to a healthier smile.

1. Appearance - When we say “live your life uninterrupted,” we mean for you to continue to live your life the way you do. The clear aligners are custom designed for you at our office and Dr. Bunn or Dr. Alfonso will design a treatment plan to move your teeth from their current position into the best possible alignment. Your invisalign clear aligners are nearly invisible, so you can continue to smile with confidence during treatment. Aligners are designed to minimize the appearance of the appliance to better fit any lifestyle.

2. Comfort – Using clear aligners has a big advantage over traditional braces, you will not have to worry about poking wires or cuts traditional braces can give you. One of the benefits of utilizing clear aligners is the ability for them to be easily removed. There may be very little to no discomfort when you switch to a new set of aligners, however this can easily be managed.

3. No Restrictions on Food - One of the greatest benefits of using the clear aligner system (Invisalign), is lesser food restrictions during your treatment plan with Bunn Orthodontic Group. Unlike traditional braces and the food restrictions during your treatment, there are certain foods you should avoid because of all the wires and sensitivity of your mouth. You can easily remove your aligners while you enjoy your favorite foods.

You should try to avoid drinking soft drinks, flavored waters or sports drinks of any kind with aligners in. These sugary liquids can seep into your aligners and can rapidly lead to staining of the teeth and cause decay, if there is acid or sugar in your drinks. Many foods and drinks can stain or discolor your aligners.

4. Hygiene - Your oral health routine should be ruled by brushing your teeth with a fluoridated toothpaste, flossing and using a mouthwash. Proper upkeep and good oral hygiene are essential in keeping your clear aligners clean, invisible and odor free. You will be wearing your aligners 22 hours a day and only remove them for cleaning and eating.

The aligners can be easily removed for eating and drinking, however, failing to properly clean your aligners afterwards can result in discoloration and a buildup of bacteria. With Invisalign, it is easier to clean your teeth than if you had traditional metal braces. You simply remove your aligners and go on with your routine.

With proper hygiene, you avoid the dangers of plaque buildup, cavities, swollen gums and bad breath. By maintaining a good oral hygiene you help minimize your time in treatment.

With orthodontic treatment that is practically invisible, you can be confident that you’re doing what’s best for your health without putting your life on hold to accomplish your dental goals. A personal consultation with Dr. Bunn is the best way to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
