At our office we know how having a beautiful smile can give someone so much confidence. We have seen this first-hand when a patient’s smile is transformed. Many times we have patients that come in with complaints of a slight over, or under-bite, or shifting teeth that were once straight. For those patients struggling with their smiles, we have offered Invisalign to help give them the confidence that was lost. Invisalign is a form of braces that are custom-made, clear, and removable!
Initially, patient’s come in for an impression appointment. We send this impression to the lab to create custom trays. Patients will be given multiple trays to switch out after a specified amount of time. With each new tray we see teeth getting straighter, and problem-areas gradually being resolved. Small dots of glue will be placed on a few teeth which act as metal brackets do on traditional braces. These dots give the trays something to grasp on to and pull the teeth into place. Invisalign is a great option for those who do not want annoying wires, or are dreading mouth sores from metal brackets. Because of its unique design, Invisalign is removable! Invisalign patients are able to eat without pain or frustration because they simply pop off the clear trays before they eat. This helps keep teeth cleaner, as brushing, and flossing afterwards is a breeze.
If you think Invisalign sounds like something you’re interested in, call our office to set up a consultation. We will be able to let you know if Invisalign is the appropriate procedure for you, give you a quote for treatment, as well as a timeframe in which you’d be using Invisalign.
