Who Can Benefit From Invisalign?
Were you born with perfectly straight, evenly spaced teeth?
Great! Then Invisalign is not for you.
Still, maybe you know someone who wasn’t as blessed in that department who could benefit from some gentle realignment.
As it happens, with the emergence of Invisalign, orthodontic solutions are now easier than ever for folks with crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth.
The Bad Old Days
Gone are they days when your only viable solution to such a situation was having your dentist construct a labyrinth of metal wires and brackets in your mouth, demanding that you come back every month for two years to get painful “tune ups.”
We all know that there are real inconveniences (even if they sometimes do get exaggerated) that are part and parcel of old school braces.
In the bad old days, there were dietary restrictions, elaborate cleaning rituals, and certain lifestyle changes that went along with wearing braces. And the equipment stayed in your mouth the entire time without any respite.
Invisalign was designed to purposefully turn things upside down.
Brace Yourself For A New Age
Even if you agree that your smile could benefit from some upgrades, you might be hesitant to commit to any treatment solution that is lengthy and time consuming.
The good news is that with Invisalign, your total treatment time is typically only a matter of months, and most of the maintenance happens at home rather than the orthodontist’s office.
What’s more, you won’t find this option to be inconvenient, awkward, or obvious, either.
How Does It Work?
The Invisalign process begins in our office with a consultation and a thorough examination of your mouth.
Together we will identify areas for improvement and create our action plan.
Images will be procured and used as the basis for the adjustments that will take place gradually, in two week increments.
Invisalign cleverly shifts your teeth through the use of a series of clear, nearly invisible aligners made of a smooth, comfortable plastic.
The aligners are custom-fitted to your mouth and will all be different depending on your point of progress.
You just pop them out at the appropriate time to put your next set in.
The best part is that they can actually be removed any time you deem necessary.
This keeps food from getting trapped, and makes cleaning your “braces” a breeze.
By Now The Advantages Should Be Clear
Invisalign is a safe, discreet, convenient, effective and fast treatment for most alignment issues.
