When you think about orthodontics, you probably think about the metal mouths of your youth. And you probably remember that “brace faces” had to be careful about what they ate, had to carry plastic bags full of tiny plastic bands, and often had food caught in their wires and brackets. Even with their pitfalls, traditional braces are still effective. The good news is that they are no longer the only option for people looking for a straight, beautiful smile. At Dental Concepts, we are proud providers of InvisalignⓇ, the subtler, simpler alternative to traditional orthodontics.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign has been around for years and is proven to be effective. In fact, you may very well know someone who is undergoing Invisalign treatment at this very moment — even if you can’t tell. How? Because instead of brackets, wires, and bands, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligner trays to gently guide the teeth into place. One of the biggest reasons our patients prefer Invisalign is because it is discreet, but that’s not the only perk. With Invisalign, you can also:
Eat what you want! Simply remove the aligner tray when you eat.
Clean your teeth with ease! No need for floss threaders or other gadgets to get between those pearly whites.
Save time! Invisalign often allows you to go longer between visits to our office — usually around every six weeks.
Enjoy faster results! Many patients achieve their alignment aspirations in six to twelve months.
Are You a Candidate?
While traditional braces work well with more extreme orthodontic cases, Invisalign can treat the most common alignment problems, such as:
- Overbites, underbites, and crossbites
- Overcrowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Not only do these corrections improve the appearance of your smile, they also remedy any problems you may have with your bite or jaw alignment.
