Invisalign® is the Discreet Method of Tooth Alignment
While many people desire a straight, beautiful smile, the idea of unsightly metal brackets and wires on their teeth for months to years is not always appealing. For those seeking a more discreet way to align their teeth, we offer virtually unnoticeable Invisalign® clear aligners. Invisalign is often preferred because they are virtually invisible and can often decrease the treatment time if worn properly. Additionally, the Invisalign aligners are removable, so patients can take them out to eat whatever foods they want as well as to properly brush and floss each day.
How Invisalign Works
We begin the Invisalign process by taking a digital impression of your mouth and planning out a treatment program to give you the best results. We can even show you a demonstration on the step-by-step adjustment of your teeth over time, as we take pictures of your smile during each appointment. Invisalign uses a series of removable aligners that should be worn 20-22 hours a day and slowly adjust your teeth over time.
Depending on your individual case, you will need to switch to a new set of aligners every one or two weeks, which further adjust the position of your teeth. Invisalign can treat a variety of orthodontic concerns, including:
- Misaligned teeth
- Spacing between teeth
- Overbite or underbite
- Crossbite or open bite
The Benefits of Invisalign® over Traditional Braces
Discreet appearanceThe clear aligners look virtually invisible while being worn and many people will not even know you are wearing them.
Eat the foods you wantBy removing the aligners, you can eat any foods you want, including sticky or hard foods that would normally break brackets and wires of traditional braces.
Improved oral healthBeing able to remove the aligners when brushing and flossing teeth allows you to reach areas that would be difficult to clean with traditional braces.
More comfortableThe aligners fit snuggly around your teeth and are comfortable around your gums. There are no sharp metal pieces that will poke at your lips or cheeks.
Shorter treatment timeBy properly following the instructions given to you by your family dentist, Invisalign typically reports a shorter treatment time than traditional braces since there are no brackets that can break to slow down the process.
Ideal Treatment for Every Patient
Invisalign is ideal for many people, including teens, young adults and busy professionals thanks to its discreet appearance. Having a straight smile gives a large boost to your self-esteem and with Invisalign, you never have to suffer through the embarrassment of traditional braces to get your ideal look. Our doctors can perform a quick examination to help you find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign so you can start enjoying the smile of your dreams.
