Invisalign® is a modern approach to straightening your smile in an unassuming manner. The treatment is more comfortable, far less noticeable, and easier to maintain than traditional metal braces, but takes the same amount of time to complete treatment.
How does Invisalign® work?
We first take molds that are used to create customized aligners out of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic. By moving through a series of aligner trays, your teeth will gradually and gently shift into place. The aligners are to be worn every day until you’re ready for your next tray, but unlike traditional braces, they can be removed when eating or brushing your teeth.
The beauty of Invisalign® is that there are no unsightly metal brackets to attach or painful wires to tighten. Not only is this method less painful than traditional braces, but it is so discreet that nobody will know you are straightening your teeth. You simply pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks until your treatment is complete, which for adults usually takes around one year. I am confident that Invisalign® will help you achieve the beautiful, straight smile you’ve always dreamed about.
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an optimal solution for both adults and teenagers because it delivers all the benefits of traditional braces without the aesthetic downside. Plus, oral hygiene is remarkably easy to maintain without having to learn to brush and floss around wiring and cement, which can sometimes remain on the teeth in trace amounts for years.
An ideal candidate for Invisalign® is someone who is getting their teeth straightened for the first time or an adult who might need further straightening years after wearing traditional braces.
