INVISALIGN TREATMENT

Everyone has a dream of getting a straight and beautiful smile. Unfortunately, many people suffer from having crooked or misaligned teeth. Traditional metal braces were the only option to align the teeth. It is very effective but is fairly visible. That visibility often prevents adults from undergoing braces treatment. Thankfully, there is a better method to straighten your teeth i.e, Invisalign. You may be wondering about the benefits of Invisalign. Many choose this treatment over traditional braces because of its advantages.

Invisible

The appearance of the braces is what stops people from undergoing treatment for mal-aligned teeth. Traditional braces are very effective at creating beautiful smiles but they are extremely visible. The benefits of Invisalign treatment is that it is practically invisible. In fact, most people wouldn’t even know that you are wearing anything to your teeth.

Computerized

Everything is computerized, your treatment plan is scheduled at the beginning so it can predict the duration of the treatment. The computerized outcome will give you a clear idea of your treatment progress right from the beginning till the end. It allows you to see the end result and how impressive your new smile will be.

Removable

Traditional braces are directly bonded to your teeth so it is not removable and maintaining good oral hygiene is a task with the braces. Invisible aligners are entirely removable. You can simply remove aligners by yourself while eating, brushing, and put them back on when you are done. Hence, there are no eating restrictions with the Invisalign.

Better Hygiene

One of the main complaints regarding the traditional braces includes food and debris getting stuck between wires and brackets. Any food that is stuck around the braces can decompose and smell, leading to bad breath. Invisalign however can be easily removed so that you can clean your teeth normally. Simply remove your aligners and brush and floss whenever needed, your aligners also can be cleaned.

Pain-Free

With the traditional braces, patients will have an issue with pokey wires that bother their cheek or lips. However, with Invisalign treatment, pokey wires or brackets are not a concern at all. It is a painless experience as it has a smooth surface.

Lesser Dental Visits

With the traditional braces, regular appointments are required to maintain, tighten or replace broken brackets. But with the invisible aligners, patients can take all sets of aligners with them so that they don’t have to visit the dentist on monthly basis.

DENTAL FLUOROSIS

Dental fluorosis is a common disorder that involves the hypomineralisation of tooth enamel caused due to increased consumption of fluoride during enamel formation. Clinically it appears as intrinsic tooth discoloration, and, in few cases, it causes physical damage to the teeth.

Clinical appearance:
It appears as faint white lines/streaks on the teeth that occurs usually under 8yrs of age when younger children consume too much fluoride over a long period of time during the development of teeth under the gums. Once teeth erupt through the gums, you cannot develop fluorosis. . It is usually seen in the first eight years of life because that is the time when most permanent teeth are being formed.

Causes:
• Inappropriate use of fluoride-containing dental products such as toothpaste and mouth rinses.
• Sometimes children swallow so much fluoridated toothpaste instead of spitting it out.
• Increased consumption of Fluoridated drinking water.
• Increased consumption of fluoride supplements during early childhood.
• Taking a fluoride supplement when fluoridated drinking water and the other sources already provide the right amount.
• Usage of fluoride tablets.

Symptoms:
• White lace-like marks on the surface of the teeth.
• Dark brown stains on the teeth.
• Rough pitted enamel appearance.
• A natural tooth appears to be smooth and glossy.
• Pale creamy white appearance on the tooth surface.

Severity ranges from:
Questionable: Slight changes in the enamel which is in the form of white flecks to occasional white spots.
Very mild: Small opaque paper-white areas that are scattered over less than 25% of the tooth surface.
Mild: White opaque areas on the surface that are more extensive but still affect less than 50% of the surface.
Moderate: White opaque areas that affect more than 50% of the enamel surface.
Severe: All enamel surfaces are affected.

Foods that stain your teeth!

Food that Stain teeth

Tooth enamel is extremely vulnerable and can get stained by the constant consumption of certain food items. The tooth enamel absorbs the color of foods and beverages and this leaves a yellow or brown tint on your teeth. Therefore, experts from Chisel Dental Clinic suggest that we must take extra care of our teeth in order to keep them white and bright. Read on to know a few consumable items that can stain your teeth in the long run:

  • Coffee: Most of us are coffee addicts, but the truth is that excessive coffee is bad for your teeth. Coffee is dark in color and frequent consumption can leave brownish stains on your teeth.
  • Tea: We love tea as much as we love coffee, but sadly it also has the ability to stain the teeth in the long run. The best way is to switch to green tea or herbal teas.
  • Red Wine: It surely is one of the most loved beverages in the world, but due to its deep color it also holds the potential of harming the tooth enamel by staining it.
  • Colored Soda: This is one item that instantly leads to discoloration of teeth. The citric acids present in colored soda are harmful enough to corrode the tooth enamel and causes a stain.
  • Fruit Juices: Juices, particularly dark colored juices such as grape and cranberry, can leave a colorful shade on the teeth and tongue. You can eat whole fruits instead of drinking juices. In case you like juices, then the best thing is to wash your mouth thoroughly with water soon after drinking juice.
  • Candies and Chocolates: These sweeties are not so sweet towards the health of our teeth and gums. Apart from staining the teeth, they also lead to cavities and other dental issues.
