Invisalign – Giving You A Clear Path To A Healthier Smile
If you have crooked, uneven, or misshapen teeth and you would like them to be straightened, there is an alternative to traditional orthodontics called Invisalign. It is a wonderful way to straighten the teeth without having a lot of metal and wires in your mouth.
Invisalign is a clear brace system in a modern way to straighten your teeth over time. This type of braces gently moves your teeth back into their right position giving you a beautiful and healthy looking smile. They have been called “adult braces” since they have been preferred by most adults. They have several advantages over traditional metal braces such as the ability to keep up a regular oral hygiene program as the braces are removable. It’s much easier to brush and floss whereas with metal braces it’s much more difficult.
How Are Invisalign Braces Made For Me
The first thing that is done are impressions. These impressions help the lab create a series of clear aligners that will be used to slightly move the teeth over the course of time until the goal is reached for your smile. These aligners are most commonly worn for a period of six months to two years. This is contingent upon how much movement is necessary for your teeth to become straighter. The doctor will instruct you on when aligners need to be changed out.
- There is no stress in the process is fast and simple
- You can remove them easily in order to maintain your oral hygiene regimen
- The liners are very comfortable
- Produces a beautiful outcome that will leave you smiling
A major benefit to having Invisalign is that there are no metal brackets or wires which tend to cause soreness, mouth blisters and difficulty eating. It also removes the need to change rubber bands as is necessary with traditional types of orthodontics. You also don’t have to give up certain foods as you do with traditional types of braces.
