Many Americans want to straighten their teeth but are hesitant to wear metal braces. The bulky appliance is quite inconvenient and uncomfortable to use. It interferes with speech, your ability to eat, and your confident smile. There is a solution that allows you to get the orthodontic work you need without the discomfort of metal braces. The solution is Invisalign, clear plastic braces.
Invisalign clear braces consist of customized aligners designed to move your teeth into the right place. It’s virtually invisible so people won’t notice that you’re undergoing a treatment. Invisalign braces are removable so you can take them off when necessary. You can remove them when you need to eat, brush, floss, or attend a special event. Just make sure to keep them in 20 to 22 hours a day.
How Does it Work?
The aligners are made from high-quality plastic material that is free from BPA. It will not irritate your gums or cheeks. You will get a series of about 24-36 aligners that are made to fit your teeth perfectly. Every two weeks, you will switch to the next aligner. Each time you switch, you will feel pressure as a new part of your smile moves into position. With high quality imaging, we can plan the entire movement of your teeth from start to finish!
If your teeth are crooked, crowded, or misaligned, you will need orthodontics to correct the issue, but those orthodontics don’t have to be a bulky, metal mess. Contact us today to find out more about Invisalign. We’d love to show you how orthodontics can work to your advantage!
