A revolutionary new method is available for helping you achieve the beautiful straight smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligning trays to gradually shift your teeth into better position. This invisible approach is appealing to both adults and teens.
The strongest selling point for both age groups is the fact that others don’t notice that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. You wear a set of clear plastic aligners for about two weeks, which you can remove any time you’d like. However, it’s important to wear them for the timeframe recommended by your orthodontist to get the ideal results in the quickest timeframe. Every couple of weeks, you will change aligners to the next in the series provided. This straightens your teeth gently and gradually without the discomfort or inconvenience associated with traditional braces.
It is a real advantage that the Invisalign trays are removable. This means that adults and teens alike can eat and drink what you’d like throughout treatment, because there are no diet restrictions as with traditional braces. This also allows you to continue your normal brushing and flossing routine, and there are no worries about food becoming stuck in any cumbersome wires and brackets.
Invisalign does not require as many checkup appointments as traditional braces either. Most orthodontists advise you to come in to monitor progress only once every six weeks or so, and total treatment time with Invisalign averages from 9 to 15 months. State-of-the-art 3D computer imaging allows you and your orthodontist to see your progress during treatment, so you’ll be able to watch your teeth move and see how much farther you have to go.
Both teens and adults appreciate the way that Invisalign fits easily into a busy lifestyle. They don’t hamper your ability to participate in sports, play musical instruments, smile for special occasion photos, and other important things that come up in life. Invisalign offers a comfortable, effective, and practical way to transform your smile.
