Orthodontic treatments are not just for teenagers anymore. Many adults benefit from them as well. Today, adults just like you are taking advantage of a variety of teeth aligning treatments that lead to a beautiful smile. One popular treatment called Invisalign can even help you achieve gorgeous teeth without the use of metal and wires.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a set of invisible aligners used to straighten your teeth. Created from plastic, the aligners are comfortable and simple to remove. Invisalign is the perfect way to achieve a beautiful smile without the use of traditional metal braces.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is one of the most comfortable ways to straighten your teeth. Since the aligners are practically invisible, no one will notice you are wearing them. This type of treatment is ideal for adults who desire straighter teeth but prefer a less noticeable form of treatment than metal braces. Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, brush and floss without problems. The custom-made aligners contain no metal or wire. This means less discomfort and fewer trips to the dentist for adjustments. As a result, you can go about your daily life. Whether participating in contact sports, attending special events or working on the job, Invisalign provides you with a discreet way to achieve a better smile.
How Does It Work?
Our orthodontists use advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to design a series of transparent aligners from your dental impressions. You wear your aligners for two weeks, only removing them in order to eat, brush and floss. Instead of visiting us each month for an adjustment, you insert the next aligner in the series. Over time, your teeth gradually straighten until you no longer need the aligners.
Dental Problems That Invisalign Treats
Invisalign treats a wide array of dental issues, including overbite, underbite, malocclusion, crooked teeth, crowded teeth or gaps between teeth. Whether you have serious dental issues or simply need help correcting mild dental problems, Invisalign is a great choice. If you have always wanted straighter teeth but hate the idea of metal braces, give us a call. We’ll discuss your options and determine if Invisalign is right for you.
