What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is a tooth-aligning system that works to straighten and align your teeth. Similar to metal braces, they correct problems such as overbite or underbite, misaligned teeth, overcrowding, and gaps in your teeth. However, unlike metal braces, Invisalign is nearly invisible, and it looks as if you are wearing nothing on your teeth at all. Invisalign is composed of aligning trays that are custom-made to fit your mouth. These trays are comfortable and subtle and can be taken out if needed for brushing, eating, or special occasions. Our doctor will customize the trays to fit your mouth and come up with a treatment plan just for you. As your teeth align, he will switch out your trays to fit your new configuration.
Using Invisalign is less invasive than braces, and does not require tightening or headgear. Invisalign solves all the problems of traditional metal braces, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, overcrowding, and gaps between your teeth. The fitting procedure is quick and easy, with our team creating your trays, along with a customized treatment plan, specifically for you. While eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing your teeth, and even for the occasional special event, you can discreetly remove your Invisalign trays on your own.
Invisalign® vs Braces
Invisalign and braces both work to correct gaps, overcrowding, and bite problems. However, instead of dealing with metal, tightening, and cleaning metal braces, Invisalign offers a subtle and comfortable solution to straightening and aligning your teeth. Invisalign is made of a clear material that is almost invisible, so people will be unaware that you are wearing braces — unless you tell them. Unlike braces, you can remove your trays while eating and brushing your teeth. Instead of cleaning your braces with a special brush like you do with metal braces, you can continue your normal routine of brushing and flossing your teeth with your usual dental products. Invisalign is a comfortable and effective option you can choose to straighten your teeth instead of metal braces.
Invisalign® for Adults & Teens
The busy lifestyles of today’s teens and adults are often incompatible with the necessary office visits required for metal braces. With Invisalign, these patients can maintain their active schedules while still achieving a straighter smile. Additionally, the crystal clear appearance of Invisalign won’t take away from a professional look for working adults, or detract from the self-esteem of teenagers.
Overall, Invisalign can work well for patients of various age groups who are looking for a discreet and convenient way to improve their smiles. It’s never too late to get started; contact our office today to schedule a consultation!
