Patients in Gloucester ask about the benefits of clear Invisalign braces

When you think of braces, you may envision a mouth full of metal. Now, imagine no brackets or wires that can irritate the gums or cheeks. You simply pop in an aligner 20-22 hours a day to attain straight teeth. You are not daydreaming. Thanks to advances in orthodontics, you can wear clear Invisalign aligners to achieve the same results as traditional metal braces. Patients in Gloucester will ask well-respected dentist Dr. France Chevalier, “What are the benefits of clear Invisalign braces?” She is happy to explain why she provides safe and effective orthodontic treatment at her Ottawa dental practice.

Providing the safest and most effective treatment

Dr. Chevalier understands the connection the mouth has with the overall health of the body. Therefore, she operates a mercury free and mercury safe dental practice. Many dentists will use amalgam, composed of half mercury and other metals, to fill a tooth. However, since amalgam poses potential danger to patients and the environment, Dr. Chevalier keeps it out of her practice. Instead, she uses biocompatible dental materials such a porcelain and composite resin. She will use digital x-rays, which have 80 to 90 percent less radiation than traditional x-rays.

Caring for your overall health and wellbeing

It is important to understand Dr. Chevalier’s biological approach toward dentistry to gain insight into why she provides Invisalign. The aligners are made of smooth, plastic material that will not irritate the gums or cheeks. The treatment provides a conservative yet effective approach to straightening mildly to moderately misaligned teeth. You can achieve optimal results without having to change your oral hygiene habits. Instead of cleaning in between brackets and wires, you simply remove the aligners to brush and floss. You do not have to worry about food becoming trapped between the teeth and wires.

Dr. Chevalier also considers your emotional wellbeing when recommending a treatment. Attaining a healthy and more beautiful smile can increase self-confidence. Invisalign has boosted the self-esteem of many patients from teenagers to adults.
