Do you want to see a straighter smile when you look in the mirror but are worried you’ve missed your chance? Don’t fret! The reality is, you can get a straighter, healthier, better-looking smile at any age! Orthodontic care is not limited to pediatrics. As far as keeping up a professional appearance while straightening your smile, we have a solution for you: Invisalign®.
The Invisalign® system straightens teeth without the use of traditional brackets, bands, and wires. Invisalign® instead uses plastic aligners that shift the teeth into place. Invisalign® aligners, as the name suggests, are clear enough and tight enough to be practically invisible, giving you a professional appearance even while your teeth are being straightened.
As an additional bonus, the aligners are removable, allowing you to move your life forward without interruption. Invisalign® is an excellent option for discreet and effective orthodontic care.
But is Invisalign® as effective as braces? Yes! They are just as beneficial as braces, but without the hassle and even much of the discomfort. Invisalign® can shift teeth horizontally, vertically, and even rotate them when necessary; the system can also be used to correct the malocclusion.
The aligners are made specifically for you based on a care plan provided by your dentist. They are completely custom to your smile needs. Aligners will be rotated every 1-2 weeks. You will need to see your dentist regularly during treatment.
