Aligned, straight teeth are a desirable asset. Not only do they look more attractive, but they are easier to keep clean and healthy. If you have malocclusions or misaligned teeth, orthodontic treatment can give you the smile you desire. At Southern Oaks Family Dental Care, we offer Invisalign® aligner treatment for teens and adults at our dental center in Baton Rouge, LA.
Invisalign aligners are made from a clear BPA-free plastic that is designed to change your malocclusions. The clear plastic is very discreet – many people refer to clear aligners as “invisible braces.” Many of our patients prefer Invisalign over braces due to their appearance and comfort. The aligners are less noticeable and much more comfortable than metal braces.
Unlike braces that stay on your teeth for up to two years or more and can restrict your food choices, Invisalign clear aligners are a removable treatment. The clear plastic trays are customized to fit over your teeth and provide the same pressure as braces to shift the alignment of your bite and teeth. When it is time to eat or clean your teeth, you can remove your aligners, which is more convenient for most people’s lifestyles.
Both adults and teens can improve their oral health and smile appearance with Invisalign. At Southern Oaks Family Dental Care, we offer the adult version and Invisalign Teen at our dental center in Baton Rouge. We start the process by performing an orthodontic consultation and exam. Our dental team can take 3D images of your teeth to create a smile simulation to show you how your smile could look after your treatment. The 3D imaging is used to create your customized aligners, which will be updated every few weeks of your treatment.
Invisalign offers a more comfortable option for straightening your teeth and improving your oral health. The treatment length is similar to braces without the discomfort or restrictions. If you are interested in clear aligners for you or your teenager, come see us at Southern Oaks Family Dental Care. We welcome new patients of all ages and accept most dental insurance at our clinic in Baton Rouge, LA.
