Traditional braces do a great job of correcting orthodontic issues, but they're not the most attractive option. One of the things many people dislike about metal braces is their appearance. Please take the time to consider Invisalign, an alternative to metal bands or wires that irritate your mouth. Since Invisalign aligners are made of clear polyurethane resin, it won't be obvious that you're wearing braces.
The Invisalign Difference
Traditional braces use a system of wires and brackets to improve alignment. Every four to six weeks, you return to your dentist's office to have the wires tightened. The Invisalign system doesn't use wires and brackets, but relies on a series of aligner trays to gradually shift teeth. Although you'll visit your dentist periodically, there's nothing to adjust with Invisalign. Movement is accomplished by wearing a new set of aligner trays every two weeks. Also, since Invisalign does not use any metal, you won't have to worry about loose wires poking your gums and cheeks, causing irritation and pain.
A Simple Process
Your dentist uses impressions and photographs to create a computerized image of your mouth, which he consults to design your Invisalign aligners. Thanks to the 3-D image, he can create trays that are tailored to your specific orthodontic issue.
Invisalign treatment is appropriate for the correction of mild to moderate orthodontic issues, including open bites, crossbites, underbites and overbites. It can also be used to correct overcrowding and undercrowding issues. You'll normally wear your Invisalign aligner trays 20 hours a day and only take them out to eat.
Convenience and Ease Of Use
These aligners are removable and should be removed to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Since you'll remove your trays to eat, you won't have to worry about the food restrictions traditional braces wearers face. Unlike traditional braces, you can also remove your Invisalign trays if you play sports and have a practice or game, or if you want to go brace-less for a special event.
Invisalign offers convenience and a discreet way to straighten your pearly whites because it works without interfering with your active lifestyle! Come in for a quick consultation and get it started with an easy impression, as your first visit.
