Get The Smile You Have Always Wanted…
Misalignment of teeth or Malocclusion is one of the most prevalent clinical dental conditions, affecting over 200 million individuals, or approximately 70% of the U.S. population.
Besides appearance factors, many people do not realize that misaligned teeth may also be responsible for dental problems such as tooth decay, tooth loss, gum disease, jaw joint pain and headaches. However, because of the compromised aesthetics, discomfort and other drawbacks associated with conventional braces, only a relatively small proportion of people with misaligned teeth seek traditional treatment.
With the introduction of Invisalign®, you can now get treatment for misaligned teeth without braces or other discomforting orthodontic procedures. Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten teeth without metal wires or brackets. The Invisalign system is virtually invisible, so most people won’t notice you’re in treatment. You’ll look great and feel confident while you’re getting an incredible new smile.
How does Invisalign work?
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position we have prescribed. You’ll visit us about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months. Invisalign has effectively helped hundreds of thousands of people who now have amazing smiles.
Benefits of using Invisalign:
- Invisalign is clear. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
- Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
- Invisalign is comfortable. There are no metal brackets or wires as with braces to cause mouth irritation, and no metal or wires means you spend less time in the doctor’s chair getting adjustments.
- Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start—so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
