The Clear Choice for Straight Teeth
Is the appearance of your teeth making you feel down at the start of this new year? Are you tired of food always getting stuck in the gaps between your teeth? Maybe you have a special event to prepare for and your dream is to have straight teeth when the special day arrives. No matter your reason for dreaming of straight teeth, we have a clear choice that is sure to leave you with the smile you desire in a discreet and convenient way. Invisalign® is the process of wearing clear aligner trays to adjust teeth.
If you have been wanting to straighten your teeth for years but have been avoiding treatment due to the thought of wearing metal brackets and wires, Invisalign® might be the option that you have been needing in your life. Invisalign® is perfect for those that are looking to make a change, but due to their lifestyle need to be discreet. Like traditional braces, they slowly shift your teeth into the desired position.
Invisalign® can be just as effective as metal braces. While the appearance of the clear aligner is a distinct advantage of Invisalign®, other benefits of the treatment include:
- Aligners are easily removable for eating and drinking. No need to avoid certain foods.
- They allow you to brush and floss as usual. Unlike with metal braces, getting in between teeth to clean isn’t an issue.
- Aligners are trimmed so they fit comfortably and don’t bother your gums. They also won’t cut the inside of your mouth the way metal braces can.
The length of treatment time varies with each patient; however, the average length of treatment is 12-18 months. We recommend the trays be worn for approximately 22 hours per day. The treatment plan will be mapped out before starting, with the pre-packaged trays needing to be replaced about every two weeks.
