Did your dentist recommend braces to help with your bite or overcrowded teeth? Do you want to improve your smile but don’t want to wear a mouth full of metal? Adults and teens are now able to enjoy a comfortable and discrete orthodontic treatment that doesn’t include metal wires and brackets. The Invisalign orthodontic system uses clear aligner trays to gradually shift your teeth into a straighter, better aligned position to give you the smile of your dreams.
Invisalign is used to treat teeth with the following conditions:
- Open bite
- Crossed bite
Invisalign uses a series of clear aligner trays to shift your teeth into place. Your dentist will take 3-D images of your teeth to plan out the exact movements that will get them to their desired position. You will then receive a new set of aligners that you change out every two weeks. You’ll be able to see the difference in your teeth as you progress through your treatment. While patients enjoy that Invisalign is clear and barely noticeable, there are several other benefits the treatment offers, such as:
- Removable – You can easily take the clear aligners in and out as needed for eating and brushing your teeth. The aligners themselves can also be cleaned to keep them in good condition.
- Comfort – The clear aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear. There is no metal to poke the inside of your mouth or gums. This also makes playing sports safer; you can take out the aligner trays and wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth.
- Convenience – With Invisalign, you’ll need to visit our office every 6 weeks to make sure your treatment is progressing, but there is no need for adjustments as with conventional braces.
