CHANGE YOUR CROOKED SMILE WITH INVISALIGN

Your body may be ready for the beach, but what about your teeth and gums? That crooked grin that accidentally slips from time to time could end up keeping you away from your favorite summer beach parties.

If your family couldn’t afford braces when you were a teen, you do not have to resort to noticeable metal appliances that can make talking and eating uncomfortable. That important sales meeting is stressful enough without having to deal with painful wires and brackets.

Thanks to Invisalign, you can have the perfect smile that your parents could never afford. If your teeth are mild or moderately misaligned, you can have perfectly straight teeth in as little as 12 months thanks to Invisalign. Of course, the length of treatment varies from patient to patient.

Take the Invisalign Smile Assessment and find out if Invisalign aligners are right for you. This is certainly no substitution for an appointment with a local Invisalign Provider, but more of a guide giving you a personalized and detailed assessment.

With Invisalign, you can eat whatever you want, when you want. The clear and comfortable Invisalign aligners are removed while you eat, and when you brush and floss. Unlike metal braces, you don’t have to worry about food caught between the wires and your teeth. Regular braces can also cause tooth decay, as it is harder to brush.

Your aligners are worn between 20 and 22 hours each day and replaced with a new set every two weeks. Virtually invisible, Invisalign aligners are easy to clean and will be replaced.

During your first appointment for Invisalign, your dentist will make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy. If you are a candidate for Invisalign, your dentist will take pictures, impressions, and x-rays of your teeth. These images will be sent to Invisalign who will create an exact replica of your teeth with a 3-D image. Your dentist will work out a treatment plan giving you an idea of how long you will need to wear your Invisalign aligners. With this technology, your dentist will be able to show you how your teeth will move during the treatment. On average, you can expect to wear your Invisalign aligners for about a year if you are an adult. A teen’s treatment is about the same length as metal braces.  

Made from BPA-free plastic that is smooth and comfortable, Invisalign aligners will not irritate your gums or your teeth. Traditional wires and brackets can be painful if you accidentally bite into something that you shouldn’t have.

Every two weeks you will wear a new pair of aligners moving to your next stage in the straightening process. Your dentist will schedule appointments every six weeks to see how everything is coming along.
