You’ve just found out that you need braces. It’s no surprise. You can see the state of your teeth every time you look in the mirror. If you are like most people, you aren’t thrilled about the idea of a mouth full of metal for the next year or more. However, you know that the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. You want that amazing smile. Fortunately for you, there have been many advances in this regard. You have more options than you ever did before. Invisalign® is one of the most exciting alternatives that could work for you.
Invisalign® has changed the way that teeth can be shifted into position. Instead of putting wires and brackets on your teeth, you are provided with clear aligners that are customized to fit your mouth. They are made of a medical-grade plastic that is durable. They need to be worn for at least 22 hours to be effective. They can be removed while you are cleaning your teeth, if you have a special function or if you are going to be involved in contact sports. You will get a new set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth are gradually shifted into the proper position.
People love Invisalign® aligners because they are clear. They are practically invisible. As an added plus, you don’t have to worry about the rough edges that come with traditional braces. The length of treatment time compares with traditional braces. All you need to do is be patient while your aligners go to work.
Is Invisalign® Right for You?
In order to be a candidate for this treatment, you need to have minor orthodontic concerns. If you have major issues with spacing or your bite, we will likely recommend other alternatives. The best way to find out if Invisalign® is the answer for you is to make an appointment to see our specialist. Your teeth will be evaluated and you can discuss all of your options to help you get an amazing smile.
