Invisalign®: The Hassle-Free Orthodontic Option
Are you interested in straightening your teeth but feel like it would be too much of a hassle? We have a hassle-free solution for you to achieve the straight teeth you desire. Invisalign® is a series of clear aligner trays that slowly transition your teeth into the desired placement. This orthodontic option offers many unique benefits that are not seen with traditional metal braces.
The Benefits of Invisalign®
This popular treatment option is the choice for many of our patients who are looking for a discrete method to straighten their teeth. The clear aligner trays are virtually invisible, allowing you to go about your day without anyone noticing that you are straightening your teeth. This option is highly desirable for a multitude of reasons:
Invisalign® trays are removable and work best if worn for an average of 22 hours per day. Having the ability to remove the trays for eating and drinking eliminates food restrictions that would typically be seen with traditional metal braces. Removable trays are also beneficial for keeping your teeth clean, allowing you to follow your typical oral hygiene routine.
The clear aligner trays are customized to fit your teeth perfectly and the adjustment is minimal between each set of trays that you change weekly. You also do not have to deal with the metal brackets and wires that are used with traditional braces.
Improve Dental Health
If you have gaps between your teeth and always need to reach for the dental floss after eating, you are at a higher risk to develop tooth decay if all the bacteria is not removed between the teeth. Invisalign® can close the gaps between teeth eliminating the opportunity for food to become lodged leading to the buildup of bacteria and decay. Straight teeth also reduce the opportunity for gum disease to develop.
