Invisalign_Woman_Embarrassed_By_SmileIf you’ve spent years longing for a straighter smile, but were afraid to get traditional braces, Invisalign can help you improve your smile without spending months with unsightly metal hiding your pearly whites. Through the use of clear, custom-fitted aligner trays, Invisalign treatment can resolve a number of misalignment issues, while being more comfortable and less conspicuous than traditional metal braces. So if a more beautiful smile is what you’re seeking, without the embarrassment of lots of shiny metal, Invisalign might just be the solution for you!

Invisalign Can Address a Number of Orthodontic Problems

There are a number of issues that can be resolved through the use of Invisalign, including overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites. That said, if you have severe alignment issues, Invisalign treatment might not be the best choice for you. During consultation, we will closely examine your teeth’s alignment, as well as discuss your goals for your smile, in order to determine the best course of action and whether or not that should include Invisalign.

What Are the Benefits Unique to Invisalign

Because the alignment trays are meant to move your teeth gradually over time, and because there is no sharp metal involved, the pain often associated with orthodontic treatment is greatly reduced through Invisalign treatment.

The trays are also removable, unlike traditional braces, which means you can take them out to enjoy your meals. Just be sure to return them to your mouth promptly after eating and brushing, in order to make the most of your Invisalign treatment. Most users need to wear the alignment trays 20 to 22 hours a day in order to achieve the best results.

Obviously, the biggest benefit to Invisalign, as opposed to traditional orthodontia, is the way its able to improve your smile while being virtually unnoticeable. After a brief adjustment period most patients are able to speak and chew comfortably and naturally.
