Do you ever wish your teeth were straighter?
Will braces get in the way of your routine, your work, your look?
If an alternative were available, would you be interested?
At our office we are proud to offer our patients Invisalign. Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to traditional braces and a great tool in Adult Orthodontics. The Invisalign system allows us to offer you a more beautiful smile, without the inconveniences and aesthetic hassles associated with braces.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to guide your teeth into a proper, straight and more appealing alignment.
Advantages that Invisalign offers over traditional braces include:
Invisalign aligners are removable:
This makes eating, and especially brushing and flossing, far easier than with braces. This can reduce the risk of staining and decay that come with traditional braces.
Invisalign Aligners are clear:
The aligners are clear, smooth, and fitted exactly to your teeth, making them almost unnoticeable. In situations where you need them to be absolutely invisible such as a close-up photo …remember: they are removable!
Invisalign is comfortable:
The aligners are created from medical grade plastics which are molded to match your teeth. They use gradual pressure as you progress through the series of aligners to move your teeth. They do not scratch the inside of your cheeks and mouth and do not have the risk of allergies associated with metallic braces.
Invisalign is effective:
As the system is computer assisted, it offers you the ability to view how the treatment should progress and what the results should be: all in advance of the actual treatment. Invisalign has been used to treat over half a million cases worldwide and has been FDA approved and available for over a decade now.
The Invisalign system:
First we take pictures, x-rays and an impression of your teeth. These are used to ensure that we have the most accurate record of your current alignment. We then use computer imaging software to create the series of aligners that will make up your Invisalign treatment.
Each aligner is worn for around two weeks (only removed for eating and oral hygiene), and then replaced with the next one in the series. With each progressive aligner we control the amount of movement and target the specific teeth or area being aligned, offering you greater precision in the results.
The number of aligners and length of your treatment will depend on your specific needs. On average however, we use between 18 to 30 aligners over the same period of time that traditional braces would require.
Straighter teeth can help with hygiene, speech, confidence and more. Don't put off straightening your teeth any longer.
