Straighten Your Smile with Invisalign®
Who wouldn’t love a straighter smile without having to wear metal braces? For many orthodontic patients this seems like a far-fetched idea. However, advances in dental technology have led to a new teeth-straightening system known as Invisalign®. Invisalign® is different than traditional metal braces. Instead of using metal wires and brackets to tighten and pull your teeth into alignment, Invisalign® uses a system of carefully calibrated and custom made clear plastic trays to straighten your smile. Invisalign® treatment is more comfortable than traditional metal braces because there are no painful tightening procedures and no wires or brackets to aggravate the sensitive tissues inside your mouth. The entire process of straightening your teeth with Invisalign® is comparable to the time commitment of metal braces. You will receive a new aligner tray to wear every two weeks. After about 20-30 trays your smile will be as straight as it could be with braces. This process takes between 9 and 15 months depending on your condition when beginning treatment. Invisalign® poses unique differences to braces, making it the number one choice for many adult orthodontic patients. The greatest advantage to Invisalign® whitening is of course the fact that no one will know that you are straightening your teeth. Your aligner trays are crystal clear and fit closely to your teeth making them very discreet. Additionally, your aligner trays can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
