Invisalign – Clear Braces
Wanting to straighten your smile, but not excited about the thought of being “metal mouth”? We offer an option just for you! Try Invisalign – the invisible way to straighten misaligned teeth.
These clear alternative to braces, uses a set of successive, removable aligners, which straighten the teeth gradually, without brackets or metal wires or rubber bands. They are made with computer imaging so they fit your smile perfectly at each stage of the process. The most desirable feature of this method of orthodontics is that you can remove them to eat, drink, brush and floss! This is HUGE! This means you can still take good care of your teeth while straightening them. Your oral hygiene will suffer no longer.
Every two weeks or so, you’ll switch to the next set of aligners, as your teeth gradually come into place. Another unique feature of Invisalign is that it requires fewer visits to the dentist during the whole process. You should only have to come in to our office about once every 6 weeks or so, just to ensure you’re progressing along as planned. On average, our patients require about a year, but of course this time frame varies based on the condition of the smile at the outset.
