As a comprehensive cosmetic dentistry practice, we offer services ranging from teeth whitening to dental implants, and if you’ve been dissatisfied with the alignment of your teeth and appearance of your smile, our Invisalign system may be able to help. Wondering if Invisalign and orthodontic treatment might be right for you? We’re here to help you decide.
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of clear, removable plastic trays called aligners to straighten teeth instead of metal brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners fit directly on the teeth and are virtually invisible when worn, and because they’re removable, you can take them out for eating, drinking, oral hygiene, and certain special occasions. This means Invisalign comes with a variety of benefits, including:
Discreet Treatment: The aligners are clear and lay flat on the teeth, making them almost impossible to see both in pictures and face-to-face.
Completely Removable: While you need to wear the aligners for 22 hours a day, they’re easy to remove for certain activities.
No Special Diet: Because you take out the aligners to eat and drink, you don’t have to restrict your diet in the way you do for braces.
Improved Comfort: The smooth surface of the aligners produces fewer scratches and cuts on the inside of the mouth than braces.
All of that said, Invisalign isn’t right for everyone. If your orthodontic condition requires us to realign the jaws, Invisalign may not be an option for you. Furthermore, Invisalign tends to be slightly more expensive than braces, so if a highly cost-effective treatment is important to you, Invisalign may not be ideal.
All in all, Invisalign is a highly effective, extremely convenient option for patients seeking a discreet way to improve their smile.
