Invisalign is a brand of clear braces that straighten your teeth without wires or brackets. Instead, a series of removable aligners are used. At Smile Orthodontics, we have these aligners custom-made to fit your mouth and will gradually shift the teeth into place. The aligners can correct everything from crooked to gapped teeth when worn as directed.
The aligners are removable, you won’t have to change your diet as you would with traditional braces. This also means that there are no emergency visits to the dentist to fix broken braces.
The best part about the process is that Invisalign treatment is practically invisible, so no one will even know you are straightening your teeth! With Invisalign, you get to live your life normally without any interruptions.
How Do I Get Started with Invisalign?
Our dentist will work with you to determine if you can benefit from Invisalign and will recommend treatment based on your unique dental needs. Then, our dentist will take impressions of your teeth to send to the Invisalign lab. Using advanced 3D technology, the Invisalign lab will create a series of customized aligners for you to wear at each stage of your treatment plan.
Invisalign is removable and nearly invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. You can also eat and drink what you want during treatment by removing the aligners!
You’ll visit our dentist periodically throughout your treatment to ensure your teeth move as planned. For the best results and a timely outcome, you should wear your aligners at all times except eating and drinking. After your treatment, it’s time to celebrate your new smile, but be sure to wear your retainer as instructed, so your teeth remain in their new position.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Teenagers may want to choose an orthodontic option that is less noticeable than traditional braces. Adults also may prefer the discretion of Invisalign over conventional braces, especially during business meetings or critical social functions. Invisalign’s clear aligners are removable, so patients can comfortably whiten their teeth for special events, eat their favorite foods, and maintain oral hygiene efficiently and effectively.
The smooth plastic surface of Invisalign aligners is also more comfortable on the mouth than the hard edges of braces. With Invisalign, patients enjoy more comfort and convenience than with braces. Patients who choose Invisalign can enjoy their beautiful new smile in a shorter time without the inconvenience of brackets and wires getting in the way of everyday life.
