Are you longing for straight teeth that allow you to smile without any embarrassment? No matter what your age is, you have options available for straightening your teeth and making your smile gorgeous and aligned. One of the top choices for straightening the teeth once you reach adulthood is the ever-popular Invisalign treatment.
With Invisalign, treatment is controlled by a computerized module that allows the practitioner to see how your teeth are currently aligned and create individualized trays to adjust the teeth. With braces, practitioners use a bit of guesswork to determine how they should shape the wires to pull the teeth into alignment. This computer-driven treatment associated with Invisalign leads to more precise results in a shorter length of time.
Traditional braces, whether made from highly visible metal or less visible ceramic, can be quite uncomfortable to wear. The metal brackets give you sharp, raised surfaces off many of your teeth, which can rub on your cheeks and tongue and create discomfort and sores. With Invisalign, treatment is quite comfortable because the clear trays are perfectly smooth and never rub uncomfortably against the mouth.
With traditional braces, once the brackets are cemented onto the teeth, they do not come off until treatment is completed. With Invisalign, the clear trays can be removed from your mouth whenever necessary. Therefore, brushing and flossing your teeth remains easy, and you will find it just as easy as always to keep plaque off your teeth. Additionally, if you have a special event coming up, you can remove your Invisalign trays for a few hours so that you can look and feel your best.
Perfect for Busy Adults and Teenagers
Many adults are too busy for the constant orthodontic appointments required for traditional treatments with braces. However, with Invisalign, you will only need to head to our office for an appointment every four to six weeks. Invisalign is also a great option for teenagers who often feel a boost in self-esteem when their teeth are progressively straightened with an invisible aligner.
