Do you often daydream about the perfect smile? Are you unhappy with spaced, gapped, and crooked teeth that impact your appearance? Have you been told that you have a crossbite, underbite or overbite that is affecting your smile and its function? Many patients who think of straightening their teeth may avoid talking to their dentist about it for fear of getting a referral to an orthodontist—and obtaining unsightly metal bracket and wire braces. Fortunately, there have been many advances in orthodontia, and patients can now work with their dentist and obtain a treatment that is practically invisible. This treatment is known as Invisalign and is growing in popularity with both teenagers and adults.
Invisalign is an effective way for patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth and dental arch to realign the smile and improve its appearance and function. Invisalign is different from traditional braces, as it eliminates the need for brackets and wires. Instead, it uses impressions of the patient’s current smile to develop a treatment plan that is achieved by wearing clear plastic aligner trays. These trays fit snug over the dental arch and are worn for two weeks at a time as patients progress through their treatment. Patients can quickly and easily reposition their teeth without having to feel embarrassed about their smile throughout the process!
Patients who undergo Invisalign treatment will find that they smile more—especially once they have achieved their dream alignment! By using the Invisalign tray system, patients can dramatically improve the way they look, while addressing poor bite alignment and function. It is a win-win situation for anyone looking to achieve the smile of their dreams, with easy, affordable, and discreet treatment!
