Crooked teeth not only impact your smile, but your dental health can suffer as well. Years ago a teeth straightening method was introduced that does not contain metal, is virtually invisible, and delivers an orthodontic correction with many advantages over other traditional treatments … Invisalign clear aligners.
Your Invisalign dentist will provide a comprehensive treatment plan that will include photographs, x-rays, and dental impressions; the time needed to correct your occlusion as well as your financial investment will be presented; and you will learn about all the positive aspects and benefits of Invisalign clear aligners.
- Appearance: The aligners are clear. This is an important component for teens, young professionals, and adults of all ages.
- Removable: These braces are taken out for meals, snacks, daily oral maintenance, and to engage in contact sports. All your favorite foods remain on the menu; simply remove your aligner and enjoy a meal or snack; replace when done. Brushing and flossing with metal braces can be difficult and cumbersome, but with Invisalign this daily task is done thoroughly and with ease.
- Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are strong enough to shift teeth to their correct placement, but without metal and wires to abrade soft oral tissues.
- Convenient: Invisalign aligners straighten teeth by replacing the aligners every two weeks. Each aligner has been fabricated utilizing 3-D digital technology; each new aligner advances the teeth straightening process. That is why it is so important to wear the aligners a minimum of twenty to twenty-two hours every day.
The time required to achieve your dental correction varies depending on the severity of your malocclusion. The result is a smile makeover that improves your appearance while correcting your bite.
While your new smile is very important to you, correcting your malocclusion helps prevent dental decay and/or gum disease. When teeth are not straight, there are many places for bacteria to grow leading to plaque build-up … the source of many dental problems.
Daily brushing, flossing, and twice yearly visits to the dentist are needed for basic dental care, but you can take it a step further by having your teeth straightened with Invisalign clear aligners.
