Invisalign Will Make You Smile
If you are an adult who has been plagued by crooked, overcrowded, or oddly gapped teeth, the time has come to finally improve your situation once and for all!
We can make it happen with a short-term orthodontic solution specifically designed with grown-ups in-mind. As such, you can bet that your treatment will be a non-invasive, pain-free, and more dignified experience than you would have encountered back in your middle school days.
After all, nobody in your position wants to endure metal brackets and wires for 2-3 years, just to straighten out problematic teeth.
We are confident that you will be pleased by all that Invisalign can accomplish while sparing you the usual insults and injuries (so to speak) that are part and parcel of traditional orthodontic treatments.
Invisalign Is Different
It won’t be long before Invisalign makes you forget everything you remember about braces from your teenage years. That’s because this modern method of moving teeth was created in response to all the usual complaints about conventional braces.
Invisalign “clear braces” navigate a new and different route to the same destination by shifting your teeth through a series of transitional stages, each one getting you closer to your desired results.
We will first map out your treatment schedule so we will all know exactly what to expect at each step along the way.
Using these detailed images of your mouth, our team will design a succession of clear plastic aligners that you will then swap out every two weeks on your own to keep the realignment moving along according to our master plan. There won’t be any inconvenient (and painful) in-office tune-ups required!
Rather than the stark metal wires and brackets your friends had to wear, you will be fitted with Invisalign aligners that are made of a high-grade polyurethane. This material is gentle on your gums, cheeks and tongue, and nearly invisible to any onlookers.
For many, the best feature of Invisalign is that these smooth, comfortable aligners are also made to be removable. You won’t be harnessed with orthodontic gear in your mouth 24/7 while this transformative treatment is carried out.
They can be popped out at dinner time, and for basic cleaning purposes. As t happens, you just rinse them under warm water and pop them back in. There won’t be any weird tools or brushes required for maintenance because no food will get stuck in your hardware. That means you also will get to continue eating the foods that you love!
Another advantage of this treatment is that Invisalign aligners can also perform double-duty as a mouth guard, if you are in a position that could benefit from such an arrangement. If you are in the habit of grinding your teeth or clenching your jaws, Invisalign aligners can protect your teeth from excessive wear, while they are crafting the smile you’ve always wanted.
In the end, your total treatment time will only be about 12 months, depending on your situation when we get started. That is much, much better than 2-3 long years of wearing classic braces!
