Once upon a time, if you had less-than-straight teeth, your only choice was to either get used to it or tolerate metal braces. Nowadays, certain types of misalignments can be fixed with a clear aligner system.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Consisting of a series of custom-designed aligning trays, Invisalign makes getting straight teeth a lot easier and more convenient. Worn in approximately two week increments, these aligners eliminate the need for appointments for adjustments. Because they are removable, you can continue to eat all of your favorite foods without worry, and your oral hygiene routine does not have to become more complicated.
Who Can Benefit From Invisalign?
Wearing your aligners as prescribed is essential to keeping your treatment on track, so this type of orthodontia is appropriate for patients who are able to take that level of responsibility toward overseeing their own treatment.
Length of treatment depends on each individual’s case. Like any medical or dental procedure, Invisalign is not for everyone. Only a trained professional can determine if you can take advantage of this innovative treatment system. Make an appointment for your consultation today!
