Traditionally, a person has to set up multiple, pricey, time consuming appointments with an orthodontist for the treatment of braces. Invisalign, however, is a simpler technology that straightens teeth with a series of clear, retainer-like aligners. Best of all: the entire process can be done in a dental office and be done at a fraction of the normal cost.
Many people prefer Invisalign over traditional braces thanks to its low profile, almost unnoticeable retainers. Length of treatment varies from patient to patient but typically ranges from 8 months to 2 years. Like braces, Invisalign can treat gapped teeth, crooked teeth, over bites, crowded teeth and under bites. The unique design makes it accessible for teenagers and adults, eliminating the embarrassment of bulky, metallic smiles and troublesome procedures. The comfort and ease of the aligners makes day to day tasks simple, because they are easy to take out and clean. Keep in mind that Invisalign is not always the best option for more severe dental cases, but it’s worth asking your dentist for more information before choosing what’s right for your specific case.
Invisalign affords you the unique combination of improving your smile and working with the dentist who knows your oral history and makes you feel “at home” in the chair. Why not give it a try?
