What is Invisalign?
This treatment is profoundly revolutionary in the orthodontic industry. We understand how metal braces can feel quite awkward and can sometimes even negatively affect one's self-esteem. With our Invisalign braces, we can completely circumvent that issue. Invisalign braces differ significantly from your standard braces as it uses clear custom-made plastic aligners. By using this type of aligners, we can help correct our patient's teeth back to its proper position without being as noticeable as metal braces.
Invisalign also comes with advantages that are unique to this treatment, and are not found in standard braces. For example, Invisalign braces can be removed at any time without difficulty. You can remove it before eating, brushing your teeth, or before a regularly scheduled dental cleaning. Since our clinic will take complete measurements of our patient's teeth formation using 3D imaging, you won't need to contend with the usually uncomfortable molding process.
The Invisalign braces are also meticulously crafted to ensure optimum comfort and results. This guarantees that all our patients will leave our feeling as comfortable when they went in, with the added benefit of having a high-quality corrective brace.
Why Choose Invisalign over Traditional Braces?
Besides the fact that our Invisalign braces are virtually invisible, it is also ideal for those who have a physically active lifestyle. Braces tend to hinder one's movement due to their weight and the overall sensation of having a foreign metal contraption attached to the teeth. This is not the case with the extremely durable, yet impressively lightweight Invisalign brace.
As we pointed out earlier, Invisalign braces can be easily removed without the assistance of a professional. There is also the considerable benefit of a relatively faster treatment period. Our Invisalign braces are designed to help improve teeth formation in a year, which is half of the period needed by traditional metal braces. Conventional braces will require between 18 to 24 months to entirely correct teeth formation.
Are you a Good Candidate for this Type of Treatment?
You will be appropriately evaluated by our doctors during an exam to see if you are the right candidate for an Invisalign brace. Some factors that our dentist will be considering include the state of your teeth, if you have a prior orthodontic treatment done (such as bridgework), and if your bones are too dense. Note that not everyone is fit for this type of teeth-straightening solution.
