Do you want to straighten your teeth without much fuss and bother? Make an appointment with Parklane Family Dentistry to find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign aligners. This orthodontic treatment offers an easy and comfortable way to move your teeth into the optimal position. When you need a minor adjustment to align the teeth within your visible smile line, Invisalign is a great option.
Traditional braces use wires and brackets to move teeth into the correct position. While this may be necessary to get the desired results in some cases, it is not always the only option. Invisalign aligners also move teeth into alignment by providing gentle pressure on the teeth to move them into the proper space.
Clear, smooth plastic trays, custom made to fit, are placed over your teeth. Each set is worn daily for a couple of weeks before you move on to the next set. With each set, your teeth move a little closer to the desired position. You also get to see the outcome at the beginning of the process, thanks to computer graphics.
The Invisalign system is very convenient because you do not have to make any changes to your diet or oral health routine. When you eat or brush and floss your teeth, take out the aligners and put them back in when you finish. Traditional braces require modifications in diet and special attention to cleaning your teeth because of the brackets and wires. These concerns are eliminated with the Invisalign system.
Teenagers enjoy using Invisalign Teen because it is a very discreet method of orthodontics. The clear plastic trays are virtually invisible when they are being worn. Teens also have the freedom to eat all of their favorite foods with friends.
