Subtle Straightening with Invisalign
Straight, perfectly spaced teeth are appealing. Unfortunately, most people aren’t born with this type of smile, but they often avoid orthodontic treatment because of the metal appliances. Traditional teeth straightening used to require metal braces and wires which not only diminished the smile’s appearance but also created painful sores in the mouth. Fortunately, Invisalign was born through advances in dental technology and is now widely available.
Straightening with Invisalign
Invisalign is a set of clear plastic aligners which are custom made for each patient. These aligners are worn for up to twenty-two hours per day until it is time to move to the next in the series. Unlike fixed oral appliances, the aligners fit over teeth like a retainer. They gently move teeth into the desired position with delicate but consistent pressure. Over time these clear, comfortable aligners can straighten crooked teeth, close up gaps and correct many other issues.
Patients Love Invisalign
Invisalign produces powerful, permanent results without the use of harsh metal or wires which can abrade soft oral tissues. They are made of soft, medical grade plastic which does not require uncomfortable adjustments. These clear aligners are virtually invisible, so they are ideal for young adults and working professionals. Patients also love that they are easily removeable for eating, daily hygiene and visits to the dentist. There are no dietary restrictions and patients may resume normal activities immediately.
Patients are able to see subtle changes in a short amount of time with Invisalign. With each new aligner in the series, the results will become more noticeable. As teeth slowly shift into the correct position, friends and family will start to notice a difference, too.
