Now more than ever, Peoria residents are recognizing the importance of oral health and maintaining a beautiful smile. They also want straighter teeth that look and feel just as good in real life as they do in photos. But for many, the idea of wearing traditional braces isn’t appealing and can feel like an uncomfortable return to their teenage years – especially for those who work regularly with clients or customers.

Fortunately, Arise Dental offers a solution. Invisalign “invisible braces” are ideal for patients who want to improve both their oral health and the appearance of their smile, but would prefer to avoid traditional bracket-and-wire braces.

Why Do Arise Dental Patients in Peoria Love Invisalign?

Invisalign is a perfect solution for busy, active patients because the technology is strong enough to straighten teeth, discreet enough that it goes practically unnoticed, and comfortable enough to let you live your life normally.

The many benefits of Invisalign include:

  • No dietary restrictions – You remove Invisalign to eat so there are no worries about bending or breaking a wire while enjoying your favorite foods.
  • No wire tightening – At each stage you simply move on to the next aligner in your prescribed series.
  • No broken wires – When cared for properly, Invisalign aligners are very durable.
  • No discomfort – Invisalign is customized to easily fit your teeth.
  • No embarrassment – Invisalign is constructed of clear plastic to be as subtle and invisible as possible. Since Invisalign is removable, you can opt not to wear it for special events.
  • Highly effective – Invisalign gets the job done.

Why Straight Teeth are Important

While straight teeth may seem to be just a cosmetic issue, straight teeth are actually important for more than just self-confidence and a beautiful smile.

When teeth are crowded or crooked, the tight and/or overlapping areas are very difficult to clean. It’s hard to effectively reach these areas with a toothbrush or floss. This leads to the accumulation of plaque and tartar, which increases your risk for developing cavities and gum disease (gingivitis). Teeth with uneven spaces or gaps are also more likely to trap food, leading to gum irritation, bad breath, and decay, which can even lead to tooth loss in extreme cases.

Additionally, misaligned teeth are more susceptible to damage and erosion caused by grinding and clenching. The uneven pressure from chewing — or clenching the jaw while sleeping — could lead to an aching jaw, chipped teeth, or even cracks and fractures.
