Invisalign® – The Popular Method to Straighten Teeth
Did you have braces during your youth and have noticed that over time your teeth have shifted out of place? This is a very common occurrence with many patients who had braces in the past and stopped wearing their retainer or who have noticed teeth shifting with age. Many of these patients would love to have straight teeth again but don’t want to go through the hassle of wearing traditional metal braces for a second time. If you are the patients we are referring to, we have the perfect solution to solve your problem – Invisalign®.
What is Invisalign®?
This popular orthodontic treatment plan consists of clean aligner trays that slowly move the teeth into the desired position. It’s the perfect solution for older teenagers and adults who are searching for a discreet way to adjust their teeth alignment without the bulkiness and discomfort of traditional metal braces. Invisalign® can be used for patients needing orthodontic treatment for the first time, as well as patients choosing to make the necessary adjustments to straighten their teeth for the second time.
Benefits of Choosing Invisalign®
As mentioned above, being that Invisalign® consists of clear trays, many of our patients have commented that their friends and family members never notice that they are receiving treatment. This is a perfect choice for anyone not wanting to call attention to their mouth while they are working or going to school. Other benefits include:
- Comfort – Gone are the days of metal brackets and wires poking you and irritating your gums. We take digital impressions of your teeth so the aligner trays fit perfectly.
- Convenience – The length of treatment varies based on circumstances, but the average treatment lasts 12-18 months. Results are seen within the first few weeks of treatment.
- Low Maintenance – Because the trays are removable, you can eat your regular diet with no food restrictions. You can also brush and care for your teeth as normal, which helps to maintain proper oral hygiene
