At Cobblestone Dental Center, we are committed to creating healthy, beautiful smiles to smile confidently. However, we understand that many people are not born with a naturally attractive smile. Among the biggest complaint is crocked and misaligned teeth. When the teeth are misaligned, it often causes you not to smile as brightly while also increasing your risk for oral health complications. Now, you can get the straight, healthy smile you have always wanted with Invisalign. Invisalign has quickly become the most preferred orthodontic treatment because it is a clear alternative to traditional metal braces.
What is Invisalign?
Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires to pull the teeth into their correct alignment. While metal braces are effective, they are noticeable and there are certain restrictions during treatment. Not with Invisalign. Invisalign offers a nearly invisible treatment. Instead of metal wires and brackets, custom-made clear plastic aligner trays are worn over the teeth to gradually move the teeth into their correct position. The removable trays offer a more comfortable, convenient and confident treatment in less time.
How Does Invisalign Work?
When used on the ideal candidate, Invisalign produces the same results as traditional braces. You will need to undergo a consultation to determine if Invisalign is right for you and to create a treatment plan. Your treatment plan will consist of a series of custom-made aligner trays. Each tray is worn for about two weeks, at which point you can switch to the next tray in the series right from your own home. On average, it takes about 12 months to progress through all the trays. At the end of your treatment, you will have a straight smile you will love to show off.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
When compared to traditional braces, Invisalign offers clear benefits. Not only will you have a discreet treatment, but added comfort. The smooth trays do not cause irritation to the lips or cheeks and there is no tugging or pulling from wires. Plus, oral hygiene is easier because you do not have to brush or floss around wires and brackets. You will enjoy a treatment that has far fewer restrictions so you can eat and drink whatever you like. In addition, treatment is often shorter and more convenient. You do not have to come into our office to have adjustments made. You will progress through your treatment at home while visiting our office every few weeks so we can monitor your results. Within a year, you will have a straight smile with results that last.
