Top Advantages of Invisalign for Treating Out of Place Teeth

Are you considering investing in orthodontic treatment in the near future? The truth is, it can be a very wise investment not only for your long term health but also for your wallet. If you are dealing with dental issues because of the structure of the teeth in your mouth, it is very likely that investing in orthodontic treatment will actually save you a significant amount of money in the long run. However, dealing with unsightly and painful treatment options and/or devices can be a huge turn off. The good news is that there is a new treatment option available that can both minimize the pain associated with the treatment, but also help you get a straight smile without really impeding on your life at all. In this article, we will be going over some of the top advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces.

The Top Three Advantages Of Invisalign:

1. They Are Nearly Invisible.

As the name suggests, the Invisalign aligners are actually nearly invisible. This is easily one of the biggest advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces because they are made of a clear plastic material and they can be virtually indistinguishable to the invisible eye. This will allow you to go on with your normal daily life and activities without having to deal with the consequences or negative associations present with having a mouth full of braces. This will allow you to get the treatment that you need without having to endure any negative mental or psychological affects.

2. They Are Comfortable.

Another huge complaint consistently received from those that go through traditional orthodontic treatment is the fact that traditional braces can be very uncomfortable in the mouth. Because of the plastic material that is used to make the aligners, you will not have to deal with any of the uncomfortable feelings that are caused by having sharp metal wires and/or brackets in your mouth and near your gums. Thus, you will not have to worry about getting constant cuts or sores in your mouth from being poked and prodded by sharp metal objects and wires. Also, you will not have to endure the pain that is commonly associated with the tightening of the braces.

3. Convenient.

Another huge advantage is that they are extremely convenient to use and to fit into your daily life. Because they are completely removable, you will be able to remove them for daily tasks needed such as eating, cleaning, and for other kinds of special occasions. This means that you will be able to properly clean your teeth each and every morning and night. Also, it means that you will not have to worry about getting food stuck in your braces while eating because you will be eating without your aligners.

Because this treatment works just as quickly and in a lot of cases even two times as fast as traditional braces, it is the clear choice for those that want the best possible treatment for their dental health.

Tips for a Healthy Face – Nose Edition

The nose. It is such an important body part that many people take it for granted. We breathe through our nose, we smell through our nose (whether good smells or bad smells) and some of use, get great joy in picking it (gross!).

But many people suffer from a constant stuffed nose, which limits their breathing and their smelling. There are many causes for this, from deviated septum‘s to abnormal amounts of mucus, to bad habits such as smoking and eating poorly. One of the first questions I ask my patients who have problems breathing is “have you tried cutting dairy out of your diet?”. You see, although very delicious, dairy can make breathing a lot worse as it thickens one’s mucus, and makes the nasal passage a lot smaller.

There are also over the counter nose sprays and surgical remedies out there, but I often don’t suggest them until they have tried some more natural healing methods.

Here is a great video explaining some home remedies for a blocked or stuff nose and sinusitis.

My favorite is the one that includes apple cider vinegar, honey and water because it actually doesn’t taste so bad. There are also Neti Pots which work well depending on how bad the sinuses are.

Remember, if you are suffering from sinusitis or constant stuffed nose, try giving up dairy. I know that it is easier said than done, but breathing is a great thing too!

Next, I will discuss some natural teeth cleaning tips. See you then!
