The Benefits Of Invisalign

Just some of the benefits of Invisalign:

• It is almost invisible in use.
• You can remove your aligner to eat meals and for special events.
• You can remove your aligner to brush and floss your teeth.
• You need fewer visits to the orthodontist than you do with braces.
• You can view a virtual treatment plan on the computer to see how your smile will end up looking.

 

The Invisalign aligner is a lightweight, clear plastic casing that is made especially to fit over your teeth. It is replaced regularly with a new aligner that brings your teeth that bit closer to your perfect smile.

How sugar affects your teeth

Sugar plays a role in the formation of cavities. Tooth decay is caused by acids produced by bacteria found in the mouth. A little of the sugar in the food we eat gets left in the mouth even after we swallow and these traces of sugar are what bacteria live on.

Check nutrition facts labels for sugar. Sugar is present in many healthful foods, not just junk foods and sweets. Dried fruits have a lot of concentrated sugar, and can stick to the teeth. Juice has as much, if not more, sugar than soda.
