Invisalign is the subtle and speedy way to straighten teeth
Only half of all Americans are satisfied with their own smiles, according to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry study.
For years, patients have had to choose between a lifetime of crooked teeth or a few years of ugly metal braces, neither of which is particularly good for one’s self-esteem. Now, however, there is a third option: Invisalign. This innovative orthodontic system offers a new way to straighten teeth without the embarrassment and discomfort of metal braces.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign replaces the brackets and wires traditionally associated with orthodontic treatment with a series of clear plastic aligner trays. These trays help to gradually shift your teeth into their proper positions. You get a new set of trays every two weeks, but you only have to visit the orthodontist every six weeks or so. Most patients can enjoy straight, even teeth in as little as 12 months using Invisalign.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign treatment offers many benefits over traditional braces, including:
- Subtle, practically invisible treatment
- Improved comfort over metal brackets and wires
- No dietary restrictions
- Easy oral care during treatment—simply remove trays to brush and floss
As with traditional braces, at the end of your orthodontic treatment with Invisalign you’ll have a brand new, straight and even smile that you’ll be thrilled to share. This brings additional benefits including improved self-esteem, possible advantages in your social and professional life, and improved oral health due to your teeth being easier to keep clean.
Is Invisalign Right for You?
Invisalign is effective in treating many kinds of tooth misalignment and bite issues. However, in some severe cases traditional braces may need to be worn for a time in order to prepare teeth for Invisalign treatment.
