Invisalign Is Not Like Other Braces
This modern approach to shifting adult teeth was actually created in response to all the usual complaints about standard metal braces.
You know the ones: it takes too long, the metal hurts my mouth, the orthodontic gear makes me look worse, braces draw unwanted attention to my mouth, I can’t eat the foods I love, I have to take time off work for monthly adjustments, braces are hard to keep clean, etc.
Fortunately, there is now a better way to achieve the results you crave.
Invisalign “clear braces” move your teeth through a series of transitional stages, each one getting you closer to their ultimate destination.
Here’s how we do it: our team will start by making a succession of clear plastic aligners that you will be responsible for switching out every two weeks on your own to keep the process moving forward.
Instead of the usual metal wires and brackets, your aligners will be made of a high-grade polyurethane. This material is much more gentler on your gums, cheeks and tongue, and nearly invisible to anyone who might be looking.
Additionally, since they can be removed at any time, you won’t be harnessed with orthodontic gear in your mouth 24/7 while this transformative treatment is carried out. That means you can eat whatever you want and clean them easily without any weird tools.
The best part is that your total treatment time will likely be only about 12 months, rather than 2-3 long years. Obviously that is dependent upon your situation to begin with.
Invisalign can help for the following issues:
Overcrowding is certainly bad for your look, but this situation presents more than a merely cosmetic issue. Teeth that are so close together are hard to keep clean. As such, dangerous bacteria is given more opportunity to run wild.
When there are gaps, your individual teeth will not be protected by the surrounding teeth. This increases the risk of your teeth loosening up and falling out.
An overbite is awkward but it can also lead to worn-down or cracked teeth that will need to be repaired sooner or later.
