Looking for straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile, but don’t want to wear metal braces for two years? Clear Invisalign aligners may be the orthodontic treatment you seek. Few adults of any age want to show up for work or a date wearing metal braces on their teeth. At the same time, crooked teeth are not only unattractive, they can also cause oral health issues that increase your susceptibility to decay.
The Invisalign aligner is clear plastic that is much more discreet than traditional metal braces. The added bonus is the decreased timeframe for wearing the aligners. Invisalign aligner trays fit over your teeth and can be removed for eating and for brushing and flossing. This means fewer limitations on what you can eat and no fear of getting food stuck in your orthodontic apparatus. It also means enjoying the fresh feeling of clean teeth after you brush!
Invisalign uses a gradual modification method of alignment, like traditional braces, but without wires. Instead, every few weeks, the patient is fitted with a new custom designed aligner tray to continue the progression towards the outcome desired. In most cases, the results can be achieved at a much faster rate than traditional braces.
Adults are not the only ones who can enjoy the advantages of clear Invisalign aligners. Invisalign Teen is specifically designed for teenage patients and their unique orthodontic needs. Given a choice between clear aligner trays and a mouth full of wires, few teens would choose the latter. Invisalign Teen isn’t the best option for all teens. It is important to consult with the orthodontic specialists at South Blvd Dentistry to determine which orthodontic treatment is best suited for your child’s realignment needs.
