It wasn’t too long ago when patients had only one option to straighten their smile. While traditional metal braces are still widely used today, modern orthodontics has delivered an alternative solution that doesn’t make patients sacrifice their self-esteem and comfort while undergoing effective orthodontic treatment. If you need to straighten crooked teeth, close in unsightly gaps or even align your bite, you may not have to strap your teeth in bulky metal brackets. Invisalign is a revolutionary aligner system that requires no metal and no embarrassment for teens and adults.
How Does Invisalign Work?
It’s simple and painless to get started with Invisalign. After we take digital measurements of your teeth and bite, we can provide a series of custom aligners that will gradually move your teeth into ideal position. You’ll change out your aligners every couple of weeks, and we only need to see you in the office every six weeks. Invisalign is effective for a wide range of orthodontic concerns, including under bites, overbites, crossbites, crowding and other alignment issues.
The Benefits of Invisalign
If you are a teen or adult who is considering Invisalign over metal braces, we’ve got some excellent news for you. Invisalign requires minimal sacrifice to your lifestyle in terms of your appearance and self-esteem as well as your personal comfort and eating habits. Invisalign aligners are made of smooth clear plastic, which makes them virtually invisible to others. Additionally, you can remove your aligners to eat, brush and floss. This means getting to eat popcorn while avoiding the cleaning challenges and dental health problems associated with fixed braces.
By choosing Invisalign, you can expect the following:
- No Embarrassment from Metal Braces
- No Restrictions in Eating
- No Need to Book Multiple Office Visits
- No Tightening or Adjustments
- No Lip or Cheek Irritations from Sharp Wires or Brackets
- No Challenges in Keeping Your Teeth Clean
If you are like most busy adults and socially-conscious teens, the choice is “clear” when it comes to choosing Invisalign for a straighter smile. Call Marietta Dental Professionals today to learn more about your candidacy for this innovative and patient-preferred solution in modern orthodontics.
