The team at Advanced Family Dentistry, is glad to straighten your teeth using the most non-invasive approach, Invisalign. Invisalign helps straighten your teeth without the worry of wire braces and metal brackets. It uses a series of clear alignment trays made of plastic to produce the same results as wire braces and metal brackets without any of the drawbacks. To subtly get a straight smile in no time, come to our practice today. Our professional dentists and the rest of the team offer a wide variety of dental treatments, including the highly effective, fast, and innovative Invisalign braces system.
How Invisalign Works
If you’ve got crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth, you might think that wire braces and metal brackets are your only choice. But at our practice, we provide a crystal-clear option - Invisalign. Unlike wires and brackets, Invisalign makes use of clear plastic aligners to move teeth into the perfect alignment without limiting your diet or negatively affecting the look of your smile.
Traditional braces employ wires to put pressure on brackets attached to the front areas of teeth to move your smile until it’s aligned. The whole process may take 18-36 months to finish. Invisalign achieves the same result in just 8-18 months using a string of clear plastic aligners, which are similar to a nightguard.
Each collection of aligners is created to symbolize your smile position a step nearer to the perfect alignment. Patients just wear their aligners for 14 days at a time, and then replace them with the next set. Throughout your treatment, you’ll need to visit us every 6-8 weeks so we can check if your smile is developing nicely as planned. We can easily tweak your treatment program to make sure your smile is developing as hoped, letting you achieve your dream results.
Candidates for Invisalign
Invisalign candidates include older teenagers and adults. Invisalign is unsuitable for kids due to tooth transition, a time in which adult teeth gradually replace baby teeth. If you want to straighten your teeth with clear braces, be sure to set up an appointment with us. After an oral exam, we’ll be able to determine if Invisalign is right for your specific needs.
Benefits of Invisalign
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign comes with very unique benefits. For one, as patients wear clear aligners, they are practically invisible to other people. As Invisalign aligners are made of plastic, this means that they won’t scrape or cut the linings of your lips and cheeks. An extra advantage of Invisalign is that the plastic aligners are detachable. This means patients can remove their aligners when brushing and flossing or when eating. The removable feature of Invisalign allows patients to enjoy their beloved foods with ease and makes it easier to maintain oral hygiene.
