Invisalign – clear braces
Invisalign is also referred to as “clear braces” because of the discreet appearance- a retainer that is transparent! This is one of the more modern techniques in achieving a perfect smile. This revolutionary corrective method for misalignment is an alternative to traditional braces where metal brackets are attached to the teeth.
If you are a candidate for corrective oral treatment, you may want to consider using Invisalign. Call the office for a free consultation to see if Invisalign is right for you. You will be happy to learn that although commitment to wearing your Invisalign retainer is crucial, there still is more freedom of choice and reduced pain than braces for you as a patient using this treatment type.
Use the following facts below to find out whether or not Invisalign is the best solution for your teeth as an effective option to traditional braces.
Am I a candidate?
If you are looking to correct your teeth’s alignment, but don’t want to opt for methods that involve metal parts like wires or brackets, the Invisalign is worth inquiring about! It can help correct a crossbite, underbite, or close gaps between teeth.
How can Invisalign help me?
These invisible low key braces are computer designed and manufactured to slowly move your teeth into the desired positions. Because these trays are clear and not easily seen, they provide a level of comfort that belies how effective they truly are. However because each tray is cast to move your teeth a certain amount, once they are used they must be discarded.
Does the Invisalign treatment hurt?
Although the pain from this corrective oral treatment is not as consistently painful as traditional metal braces, it’s very uncomfortable every time you switch to a new aligning tray. This discomfort or pain is triggered because your teeth are slowly being pushed into the right alignment.
Is Invisalign expensive?
Whenever you are considering dental treatments, cost can be a prohibitive condition. Typically Invisalign starting at $2,000 dollars depending on how misaligned your teeth are originally.
What happens after the Invisalign treatment?
It’s possible for your teeth to shift and migrate into misalignment at any point in your life- even after having worn braces. It could be the result of not wearing your retainer as directed, wisdom teeth growing in and pushing on the other teeth, or the overall growth of your mouth causing teeth to move. So, if your teeth have moved, what can be done? Ask us for more information about Invisalign! These invisible, custom-made retainers are a new solution for teeth alignment instead of wearing traditional braces, and are easy to maintain. By wearing your Invisalign as directed, misaligned teeth are moved to become part of an even, beautiful smile.
