It’s The Clear Choice
Like most of us, you are probably thinking of things you would like to do once we are past this challenging time. Maybe it’s something you’ve put off for a while, like a dental treatment to enhance your smile. We offer one treatment in particular that helps straighten teeth and realign your bite without the need for metal braces. Would you like to learn more?
If you or your child need braces but would prefer not to wear metal, we offer Invisalign clear aligner trays as an alternative for improving crooked teeth and treating overcrowding. They are as effective as traditional braces, but hardly noticeable.
How They Work
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic trays that are customized for each patient’s teeth. With at least 20–22 hours of wear per day, they slowly move teeth into a preferred position. You are able to remove them for eating and dental care. A typical treatment takes between 12 and 18 months, after which you may have to wear a retainer to maintain the new position of your teeth.
Other benefits of Invisalign include:
- The clear aligner trays are easily removable for eating, brushing and flossing.
- Because you can remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth, you can clean in between your teeth and help maintain your oral health.
- They’re more comfortable than metal braces, which can sometimes poke and irritate your gums and the inside of your mouth. The clear aligner trays are smooth and comfortable to wear.
We find that teenagers and adults really appreciate the discreteness of Invisalign. They may have put off getting braces because of the metal, but now they can confidently wear Invisalign in public.
