Misalignment (crooked teeth) is a common issue with the appearance of your smile. However, uneven teeth can also hinder the overall health of your smile, increasing the likelihood of common oral health concerns–ranging from tooth decay and gum disease to jaw joint disorders, such as TMD or bruxism. In order to correct misalignment, we offer a practically invisible alternative to traditional braces with Invisalign.
Clear Smile Correction
After the doctor takes impressions, x-rays, and photographs of your teeth, the Invisalign lab will use these records to create your aligners. The aligners will be made from a BPA-free plastic material. You will then wear them for between 20 and 23 hours a day, upgrading to a new set about once every two weeks. The treatment can address minor misalignment issues for patients 16 and older in about a year to 18 months, depending on the severity.
Benefits of Invisalign
- The aligners are made from clear plastic so are much less noticeable than metal braces.
- Patients find the plastic aligners more comfortable than braces.
- Removable aligners mean you don’t need to change how you eat, and brushing/flossing is much easier.
- Treatment requires fewer office visits.
