Teeth – Fall in Line!
Have you been putting off straightening your teeth because you just don’t want to take the plunge into traditional metal braces? Do you have a teenager at home who needs braces, but is resisting because it might ruin their Instagram aesthetic? Fear no more! Now it’s possible for patients to get perfectly straight smiles using the discreet and comfortable Invisalign product.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign works similarly to metal braces, in that the treatment involves placing a slight amount of pressure on the teeth to guide them into their new positions. Instead of relying on metal brackets and wires to do this, Invisalign uses a series of plastic, clear aligners. A patient simply wears a set of aligners for 22 hours a day for two weeks before progressing to the next set. Once they have worn all of their trays, they should see a beautifully straight smile in the mirror.
Why Choose Invisalign?
There are countless reasons why millions of patients around the world have chosen Invisalign versus traditional metal braces. Here are a few:
Everyone can tell when a person has braces, but Invisalign aligners practically disappear when placed on the teeth. This means you don’t have to be self-conscious about friends and coworkers noticing the treatment.
Each Invisalign treatment is specially-designed by our dentists, and the tray’s smooth plastic sits comfortably against the lips, cheeks, and gums.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign is removable, meaning you can take the trays out whenever you want to eat or brush your teeth.
The average treatment time for Invisalign is 12-18 months, while the average for braces is 24-36 months.
Who Can Benefit From Invisalign?
Invisalign was specifically designed for adults and teens who can benefit from orthodontic treatment but don’t want to deal with the look and hassle of braces. As such, it can correct a variety of common issues, such as:
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Bite alignment
