The Journey To Straight Teeth
We’ve been surrounded by beautiful smiles our entire lives. From celebrities, models, and those on television commercials, amazing smiles have made us look in the mirror and decide if we are satisfied with our smile.
Over the years, advancements in orthodontic treatment have made more treatment options available.
One of these options is known as Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses sets of clear retainers to straighten teeth or bring them into ideal alignment. The clear retainers help make the name “Invisalign” and are preferred among many adults opposed to traditional metal braces. Every few weeks, the patient receives a new set of retainers from their providing dentist.
What are the advantages?
- There are a few advantages to Invisalign when compared to traditional braces
- Ability to remove before eating and drinking
- Ease of care
- Less time required with fewer visits due to broken brackets and loose wires
- Easily hidden when smiling
How do you know if Invisalign is right for you?
Invisalign is not the ideal treatment for every patient. Invisalign is an excellent choice for those who need minimal alignment corrections and those who have had their teeth shift after braces. If you are interested in seeing if Invisalign is an option for you, please let your dentist know at your next appointment.
