We are excited to start offering Invisalign to our patients! Invisalign is an innovative way to esthetically straighten teeth while correcting your bite. More than 90% of adults have varying degree of malocclusion that often contributes to uneven wear on opposing teeth and jaw discomfort. In addition, misaligned teeth can also hinder your ability to keep them clean during daily hygiene and increase your likelihood of developing preventable decay. If you are looking to improve your smile and bite, Invisalign is for you!
There are many advantages that Invisalign has to offer over conventional metal braces. The most transparent advantage is that they are virtually invisible! The clear aligners allow you to correct your teeth without compromising your smile during treatment. This removes one of the greatest barriers that have been deterring adults from getting orthodontic treatment.
Unlike conventional metal braces, this appliance is easy to remove. This makes maintaining oral hygiene easy and manageable from the day to day. You simply remove the appliance during meals and would only need to brush and floss afterwards prior to placing the aligners back on. You are in completely control of your oral hygiene. Invisalign has been shown to improve patient’s hygiene while going through treatment and this routine is often continued post-treatment. As a result you are getting a beautiful and healthy smile for years onwards.
Invisalign is more comfortable than conventional braces in that it is made out of a smooth surface aligner. There is no metal or wires to cut or abrade the soft tissue inside your mouth. In addition, there will be no gum inflammation or swelling that is often associated with conventional braces due to plaque build up. There is always a learning curve associated with any corrective appliance, but this is the most adaptable appliance that you can find on the market. Another plus, it doesn’t cost anymore than conventional braces!
Invisalign is a set of aligners that you wear over your teeth. This procedure helps shift teeth into the correct position over the course of a few months. You would wear each set of aligners for 7-10 days and switch out to a new set to induce progressive movements over time. Each patient is different and you will be informed of the timeline necessary to correct your smile prior to initiating treatment. Even before treatment, we can show you the anticipated outcome of your smile if you are diligent with wearing your aligners! With Invisalign, every step of the way is transparent!
Invisalign is a revolutionary progression in orthodontic dentistry and has shown remarkable results. If you have any questions regarding Invisalign for yourself or family members, please don’t hesitate to give us a call and let us show you what we can do to help!
