If crooked, gapped or crowded teeth are what cause you to hide your smile, you are not alone. However, whether you are a teen or an adult, you may cringe at the thought of wearing metal braces to correct your dental misalignment. Guess what? You may not have to. We have more and more patients asking about Invisalign, a top alternative to metal brackets and wires.
Gone are the days when bulky metal braces are the only way to straighten crooked teeth. One of the greatest and latest breakthrough solutions in orthodontics is Invisalign. With Invisalign, today’s patient now has the opportunity to choose an orthodontic treatment option that is comfortable, convenient and remarkably discreet.
What to Expect with Invisalign?
During Invisalign treatment, you will be asked to wear a set of clear, custom-fit aligner trays that gently move your teeth into better position. You’ll change out your pre-made aligner trays approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. Treatment time varies from patient to patient, but most adults gain their final results between 6 and 18 months of wearing Invisalign. Don’t worry; we won’t need to see you in the office nearly as much as treatment with traditional metal braces – an ideal setup for the busy teen or working adult.
The Big Benefits of Choosing Clear Aligner Therapy
We understand the specific concerns that adults have when considering orthodontics. In many cases, wearing metal braces is not only embarrassing but can jeopardize your professional career. Invisalign gives adults a favorable alternative to achieve the attractive and straight smile they deserve.
The fact that Invisalign aligners are made of clear, comfortable plastic means that you are comfortable during your treatment and others will unlikely even notice you are undergoing orthodontic correction. Additionally, your trays are removable for eating, brushing and flossing. This is a leading advantage, as it allows patients to freely choose the foods they want to eat and also keep their teeth and gums healthy while in treatment. While in Invisalign, you can enjoy that popcorn and occasional candy and keep your smile free of stains and gingivitis.
