A Discreet Solution for Straighter Teeth
Innovative Invisalign clear braces will help you achieve a beautiful straight smile in less time than you ever thought possible!
Are you an adult who has crooked teeth? Have you given up on a straighter smile because you don’t want to wear metal braces? There is an alternative; millions of adults have had their smiles transformed with Invisalign clear aligners. Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for kids anymore! At Smile Practice Family Dentistry, we want to provide you with options that make sense for you. Invisalign is a short-term adult orthodontic treatment that is easy to use and easy to maintain, and produces results similar to metal braces.
What Is Invisalign?
You most likely have heard of Invisalign aligners as they have been widely used for over a decade, but you may not really understand how the system works or why people choose Invisalign over other types of orthodontics.
Invisalign is a fast, discreet way to straighten mild to moderate tooth misalignment. Treatment consists of a series of customized aligners that are virtually invisible. If you can picture a mouth guard, you have some idea of what an Invisalign aligner looks like. But imagine that the aligner is crystal clear and conforms perfectly to the shape, size, and contours of your teeth.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Dr. Yanela Gonzalez has received specialized training to treat patients with Invisalign. Once we decide you are a good candidate, she will take images and x-rays of your teeth and input the information into a proprietary software program. Using the information it produces, Dr. Gonzalez maps out a step-by-step plan that predicts the movement of your teeth.
A series of clear aligner trays are created and takes you through each stage by gently nudging your teeth into proper alignment. You wear each set for about two weeks, then move onto the next in the series.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign is popular because it offers so many benefits compared to traditional metal orthodontics:
- Discreet – The aligners blend in with your smile so no one has to know you are having treatment.
- Comfortable – Invisalign is made of a smooth plastic material that conforms perfectly to your teeth. You don’t have to worry about wires or brackets irritating tender mouth tissue!
- Convenient – You can remove Invisalign trays to eat the foods you want and for oral hygiene. Just remember that you can achieve the fastest and best results by wearing the aligners at least 22 hours each day.
