INVISALIGN & ORTHODONTICS
Invisalign & Orthodontics
If you are looking for a non invasive method to straighten your teeth,
Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you.
Invisalign does what its name says. . . . Invisible Aligners.
Invisalign treatment is a wonderful alternative to traditional braces. It was designed with adults in mind. The clear aligners function much like braces. By applying pressure selectively to the teeth, they are moved into better alignment.
Did you know that straight teeth don’t just look better, they are easier to floss and brush? You can therefore maintain healthier teeth and gums when your teeth are well aligned.
Here are some definite advantages to wearing Invisalign:
- They are virtually invisible. Most people will not know that you are wearing the aligners.
- They are removable. This means you can take them out when you eat and drink, and when you floss and brush your teeth.
By removing them for oral hygiene, you can maintain healthy gums more easily than you can with traditional braces.
- Invisalign aligners are quite comfortable to wear; and you replace them every 2 to 3 weeks which helps to keep them fresh.
Feel free to take advantage of the information on our site so you can determine if Invisalign is right for you. If you have any questions about this method or its effects on your teeth, please call us or request a complimentary office visit.
The practice of Orthodontics is evolving like all the other areas of dentistry. Although Invisalign is a great solution to many orthodontic problems, there are certain orthodontic treatments that are still better done with the use of traditional braces and different types of removable appliances.
When teeth are not in proper alignment and position, there are many things that can result. It is somewhat like having tires/wheels on your car that require alignment. If a wheel alignment and balancing are not done, not only can the tires develop unusual wear patterns, but strain can be exerted on the axles, the wheel bearings, even the brakes. Like this, teeth that are in incorrect positions can cause wear and tear on not only the teeth but the jaw joints, the skull, the gums, and other structures.
