Are You a Candidate for Invisalign?
Tens of thousands of patients across the nation have been treated with Invisalign. This procedure is used to straighten teeth in the same way that braces are designed to do.
How it Works
If you want to makeover your smile without dealing with metal braces, Invisalign may be the answer. This “invisible” procedure works through a series of clear, removable aligners that resemble mouth guards. The aligners are worn at all times, except when eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
Each set of aligners are worn for about two weeks and move the teeth gradually to their correct position. Invisalign is designed to align teeth that are:
- Too crowded together
- Have too much space in between them
- Overbites and underbites
In general, if you are a candidate for braces, you are probably a good candidate for Invisalign clear braces. However, this procedure works best for those with mild to moderate spacing and isn’t recommended if you:
- Are a child
- Have a severe bite abnormality that requires headgear (Invisalign isn’t compatible with headgear).
If you are not a candidate for Invisalign, Instant Orthodontics or Dental Bonding may be ideal for you.
Convenience and Secrecy
Invisalign offers comfort and convenience, and anonymity. No one will notice you are undergoing cosmetic dentistry work, because your teeth will move gradually and invisibly. With Invisalign, you can be active as you want and remove your aligners whenever you please.
Instant orthodontics can provide you with the same results that traditional, metal braces would provide but in a significantly shorter amount of time and without the use of awkward appliances. In just a few weeks, you can have beautiful, straight, white teeth!
